Located just off of Rittenhouse Square, this five-bedroom, six-and-a-half bath townhouse sits on Delancey Place—one of Philadelphia’s most historic and picturesque streets. The 5,000-square-foot home was built in 1853 before eventually being converted into an office and apartment building in 1980.
A recent restoration and conversion back into a single-family home has returned the glamour to the property, which now fits in with the other stunning houses on the quaint bricked block. Guests are welcomed to the home through a checkered foyer, and you’ll find original oak hardwood floors and crown moldings throughout.
It’s the main rooms that really impress, especially the living room—large windows create a light and airy feel while a chandelier and a Pennsylvania blue marble fireplace add style. Built-ins and custom features accentuate the eat-in kitchen, and an accordion window opens to a lovely trellis-filled garden.
Sunny bedrooms make up the upstairs floors, and up top a private roof deck boasts a retractable canopy and irrigation system. Other perks include a basement with gym, an oversized two-car garage, and an elevator that services all four levels. Love what you see? 1812 Delancey Place is on the market now for $4,125,000.
