Description

Magnificent high-Victorian Rittenhouse Manse with expansive 25 frontage, 4 stories plus walk out lower level to a lush rear garden. This Venetian Gothic townhouse features a marble & limestone facade with arching windows and oriel bay overlooking St James street, one of the neighborhood's iconic blocks, lined with immaculately preserved homes by Furness & other notable 19th c. architects. A previous rooming house until the current owners totally restored it to single family use with noted architect & former AIA President, Susan Maxman. 10 bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths, 6 fireplaces, and over 5000 sf of living space this gracious home accommodates family & guests alike plus offers many additional uses; home office, painting studio, sitting room etc. 11 high ceilings throughout are crowned by original plaster mouldings and architectonic details abound from intricately carved mantles to a central wraparound staircase surmounted with skylight, illuminating the center of the home. Enter the home through double doors flanking a walnut paneled vestibule, a weather break from the elements. The main level offers formal living room with decorative, carved marble fireplace, white oak herringbone floors and gallery lighting to highlight your art collection. The dining room connects from both the main hall or through a passage under the stair and is the ideal space for sumptuous dinner parties or intimate family gatherings. High ceilings, an original carved wood fireplace mantle and a deep bay window overlook the garden. The homes "NY Loft" kitchen is a study in modern style and restraint, part of a second renovation by architect Spence Kass. Warm rift-cut mahogany cabinetry contrasts with cool gray quartz counters and frosted glass backsplash. Sleek, stainless Sub-zero and Miele appliances complete the state of the art chefs kitchen. At the end of the main level an intimate breakfast room with original leaded glass window hovers over the garden, and a set of steps leads down to the back yard sanctuary. Ascend the central wraparound staircase to the primary bedroom level where a 25 wide room accommodates any size bed, built-in closets, a sitting area in the oriel and a statement-making, turned and carved, decorative wood mantel. Walk-through closets join the bedroom to a private sitting room which connects to the spa-like primary bath, making this floor your private suite of rooms. The bathroom offers separate soaking tub & shower, water closet and pedestal sink. The 3rd floor has a group of 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, both rendered in original porcelain subway tiles, one features a vintage soaking tub. Two of the bedrooms serve alternative purposes, one, a sitting room and the other has been transformed into a deluxe laundry space. The homes top floor has 4 more bedrooms and newly renovated hall bath with glass enclosed shower. The largest of the bedrooms is used as a home office, tucked into the south facing bay window. A mixture of original red pine and golden oak hardwoods cover the homes upper floors. The lower level, originally the homes kitchen, has direct access to both the rear garden & the street in front under the stairs (perfect for bringing bikes in from outside). Currently used as an artists studio, this level also makes an excellent den, playroom or workout space. Located in the award-winning Greenfield School catchment and equidistant to Rittenhouse & Fitler Squares and the miles-long Schuylkill Banks river trail, this home rests in the middle of a low-traffic, tree-lined street. Sellers will pay for a years parking at a nearby garage, steps from the house. Near incredible shopping on Walnut & Chestnut Streets and some of the citys best restaurants, Vernick, Parc, Wilder and so many more. With easy access to 30th St station, Penn, Drexel, CHOP, HUP and the downtown business core - this outstanding home offers everything that makes urban living so incredible.
