SPECTACULAR FEDERAL HOME IN PRESTIGIOUS SOCIETY HILL

 

 

This picturesque Society Hill home is quietly nestled among the cobblestones of prestigious Delancey Street. Pure nostalgia gilded in modern luxuries, this unique home perfectly blends old and new creating a classic contemporary feel. The stunning details of the exterior of the property are evident as you approach the arched entrance-way and are greeted by Apollo, the Greek sun god, in the form of an antique brass door knocker welcoming you home. Upon entering you are enveloped by the warm comforting presence which embodies this estate with wide plank hardwood flooring and soaring ceilings throughout. To the right, our formal dining room is drenched in classic style with its own beautifully detailed gas fireplace and elegant trims accenting this space. Continuing past the first floor's half bath and center staircase we come to the heart of the home. Here the spacious and vibrant kitchen seems to tantalize your inner culinary desires. The kitchen flows magnificently into the grand living room through both an arched entrance-way and a large pillared open half wall over top of the kitchen's counter space. The living room itself has an extremely open feel with its own gas fireplace, exposed brick wall, south-facing floor to ceiling windowed doors, and open ceiling with finished beams and 3 skylights allowing for brilliant light throughout the entire living area. The rear patio serves as the perfect urban oasis with a wrap-around raised garden and built-in grill for all your seasonal pleasures. Hidden within the kitchen, a tantalizing hidden staircase leads down to the home's vintage-styled wine cellar and tasting room. With wine racks surrounding, this temperature controlled sanctuary with a separate refrigerated room for delicate white wines still allows plenty of space to relax seated beside the faux mantle fireplace enjoying the brilliance of your newest aged treasures. In addition to this refuge you also find a full bathroom, laundry facilities, as well as a private entrance via a front doorway and steps leading to Delancey Street. Up from the first level, the convenience of the full second floor owner's suite embraces you and offers ease at the end of the day. The main bedroom is filled with the same ambiance you've come to expect of this charming home with its own fireplace setting the tone for the relaxing evenings ahead. Completing this floor are the full walk-in closet tastefully built to suit all your wardrobe needs and the exquisitely designed sprawling main bathroom with double vanity sinks and glass enclosed shower. The third level is home to two more comfortably sized bedrooms in the front and rear of the home with their own shared bathroom and built-in hallway library. The front bedroom also features the fourth gas fireplace adding yet another layer of coziness. The fully finished fourth floor is a bedroom unto itself with a bonus back room designed as a small office space and sliding glass doors leading to the spectacular views of the rear roof deck. This luxurious historic masterpiece is Philadelphia living at its finest.
