Why Life In Rittenhouse Square Is One We All Aspire For (And How You Too Can Live It)
Life in the city is known to have highs and lows—highs that include connectedness, chic restaurants, and a walking commute to work; lows that may include cramped spaces, noisy neighbors, and busy streets. But that’s where life in Rittenhouse is different.
Few neighborhoods (in any city) can match the prestige and solitude of living in Rittenhouse Square. With arts, culture, and gorgeous green space—it makes you wonder, ‘Are we even in Philadelphia anymore?’ In the heart of the city, this charming parkside neighborhood is one of the city’s most sought-after ‘hoods for a reason: Urban elegance.
You could say living in Rittenhouse makes you feel like you live in a palace: Incredible views of skyscrapers mixed with historic homes and brick sidewalks, the sweet smell of spring blossoms and weekend farmers’ markets, charming brasseries for brunch, chic restaurants for dinner, vintage architecture with modern finishes… And you could say no place captures it all quite like (the appropriately named) The Residences at Versailles.
These chic French-inspired one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments make you feel like you’re living on your very own Île-de-France with vintage details of the 100-year-old building’s original design—i.e. wall-to-wall windows, French doors, and Juliette balconies. It’s a Parisian oasis in the middle of Philadelphia.
It’s no wonder why so many couples are opting out of life in the suburbs for a low maintenance, European-style life in Rittenhouse Square, a neighborhood that honors its history while still paying attention to the fine details. It’s one of the only places in the city to find fine finishes like granite countertops, Carrera marble, custom tile, walnut floors, recessed dimmable LED lights and still a hint of character—all the little things that make you go ‘ahh’ at the end of the day.
But no life in the city is spent entirely indoors. That’s why the rooftop of The Residences at Versailles is an incredible space for entertaining while also taking in the buzz of the city life. “V Kitchen,” the rooftop bar and living room common space offer a spacious escape for entertaining or enjoying rooftop yoga. Plus, the dog-friendly play area is perfect for four-legged friends to join you and your guests.
Whether you’re the host who loves to throw holiday parties, an empty nester ready for a maintenance-free space, or you simply want to stay connected to the action as your family grows, your key to having it all starts by unlocking your front door at The Residences at Versailles.
Stay connected without sacrificing your level of chic. Retreat from busy streets to a luxe life you always dreamed of living in a jaw-dropping space you can share with the ones you love.
