    Description

    Here you~ve found a classic beauty that's been lovingly restored and thoroughly maintained. This quintessential Society Hill home has been fully renovated in a high quality, uncompromising fashion honoring its late Federal style circa 1830. While history and charm appears consistently throughout the decor, you don't have to lift a finger to create your own transitional look. You don't have to call a contractor. Move on in and ENJOY the pristine and calming atmosphere that surrounds you here. Approaching this 4-story home, you'll be welcomed by a strong, brick facade with historic details including a fire insurance plaque, shutters, brass details, and a cute, short little door that opens into the lower level kitchen. You can have your groceries delivered directly into your kitchen. Its possibly the original service entrance for coal delivery but now serves as a unique convenience quite possibly unfindable anywhere else. Use the handsome normal sized door to welcome guests into an incredibly charming living room with a beautiful sitting area that can be a formal den, library, reading room, or a fancy little office for opening and writing letters; you decide. Just beyond, the dining room seats as many as 24 guests for dinner, and is framed by a quirky stained glass window that bathes the room in natural light, and an exposed brick chimney that by installing a working fireplace can be easily brought back to life. Continue to the switch back staircase, which just a few years ago, was lovingly hand crafted by a prominent Philadelphia stair company. It frames the recently enlarged, extra tall double glass doors to the incredibly deep brick patio with custom landscaping. Imagine all the seasonal glory of your year-round outdoor living. Downstairs the newer kitchen is a chef's dream. Entertain your friends for an indoor-outdoor party or cozy up for holiday dinners by utilizing the double ovens and cook top. Counter tops for miles, storage for days. There~s also a convenient powder room on this level for comfort and convenience. Best of all, the custom upholstered banquette with storage in the seating will be perfect for coffee, crosswords, and pets in the morning. Ahhhh, you~re already feeling so relaxed and have all the time in the world to spend right here. Until you bought this house, where did all your time go? Upstairs there are two beautiful, charming bathrooms with all the amenities including linen closets, a claw foot tub, glossy pedestal sinks, and great lighting. Multiple rooms allow ample space for guests to stay, family members to grow, memories to make, stories to be read and told, movies to watch, popcorn to eat, holidays to celebrate, walls to decorate. The master bedroom can be located on any of the upper floors. At the top, find a generous loft with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, and remote-control skylights that close automatically when it rains. The technical aspects of this home are equally as impressive. Everything has been renovated in the past 5-14 years. The dual zone AC and new tankless hot water heater are essential and highly effective for a tall home such as this. The roof was completely rebuilt after 13,000 pounds of original roofing material was removed. Rest assured; you have the right stuff above you. Three more important details: location, location, location. Nestled on a serene block where sometimes you can hear cantors sing as you overlook Calder Statues, courtyards, and gardens. A few blocks to Washington Square Park and Independence Historic Park, this home is also conveniently surrounded by shopping, amenities, entertainment, fitness, and transportation options You will be in the center of everything, and still feel quite at home in your own perfect, peaceful pocket of Philadelphia.
