Just Listed: Modern Townhouse in Queen Village
Love secrets? This house has a very nice one you might actually want to reveal. (Or not.)
This ultra-stylish, ultra-large, ultra-luxurious Queen Village modern townhouse for sale rises several notches above both its neighbors and your run-of-the-mill modern townhouse hereabouts.
From its striking exterior to its split-level main floor to its stylishly designed interior, this house offers you the best of everything — and then adds a little something extra to the mix.
Everything about this house is designed to Wow! your guests and please you no end, beginning with the 13-foot-high split-level main floor.
Like much of the rest of this house, the living room is wired for sound. It also has an Ortal fireplace topped by a backlit surround with accent lighting.
Overlooking the living room and foyer is the dining loft, which combines a dining room and a stylish kitchen. Glass railings provide a clear view of the spaces below.
The dining room is also outfitted for video as well as sound, making it one of several movie-night options this house offers.
The kitchen is a vision in marble and stainless steel, with high-end appliances from Sub-Zero, Wolf and Miele.
In a thoughtful move, the primary bedroom occupies the floor immediately above the dining loft, making late-night refrigerator raids more convenient. It too is wired for sound and video, with a big-screen TV mount above its stone-framed fireplace.
The primary suite is very well outfitted in other ways. Its huge walk-in closet has a mahogany organizer system and a built-in wall safe for storing your valuables behind your clothes. And its bathroom features a heated floor, a jetted tub, a dual vanity with lit mirrors and a marble steam shower with rain head, wand and body sprays. The primary suite shares the second floor with a guest bedroom suite with an en-suite bathroom.
Three more bedrooms, one with an en-suite bath, a shared hall bath and the laundry room lie between your private retreat* and the one floor not served by this house’s six-stop elevator: the roof. You’ll find a wet bar just inside the sliding door that leads from the pilot house to the roof deck, where you can take in a 360-degree view of the city. You can also wire this space for sound and video and hook up a gas grill.
Below all this is a super-stylish basement media room equipped with seven built-in Sonance speakers and a subwoofer for a true cinematic experience when watching the TV mounted on the backlit granite accent wall. It also has a heated floor for extra comfort. Your guests can use the full bath on this floor as well.
*Speaking of private retreat, recall that I said at the beginning that this house throws a little something extra into the mix? See that built-in bookcase next to the elevator?
Swing it open and head down a short flight of stairs to your secret basement lounge. Here you will find another wet bar with beverage fridge and wine rack, a heated floor and one more fireplace. You can also step out for some fresh air down here, as a sliding door opens into the lightwell and offers an emergency exit.
With all this ultra-luxurious Queen Village modern townhouse for sale offers you, you may not ever want to leave it. But it is located close to South Street, Head House Square and Fabric Row, all of which abound with interesting shops, great eateries and lively nightspots. The Delaware riverfront is also a short walk away, several SEPTA bus routes pass nearby, and the house itself has a two-car garage with direct elevator access where you can store your wheels for whenever you might need them. It also has a smart-home system that lets you control the blinds, lighting, climate control and sound from your smartphone even before you get out of your car or walk through the front door.
