    Description

    Welcome to one of the most unique condominiums in all of center city! Built in 1892 by the noted architect Frank Miles Day, this former five story-high Rare Book Store kept the 17" masonry walls, but transformed the interior space into four full floor units including this large 40 foot wide, 3000 square foot contemporary bi-level penthouse condominium with unbelievable 1000 sq ft terrace overlooking center city! Dramatic spaces include two bedrooms plus a den, three bathrooms, ample closets, a large second level living room and a full kitchen connecting to the terrace! The unique historical elements of the building have been combined with contemporary design to create beautiful spaces which include Victorian ceramic mantels and contemporary glass fireplaces. Key controlled elevator opens right into your unit! Beautiful hardwood floors throughout, high end kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, and dramatic open spaces make this unit an entertainer's dream. Other upgrades include Japanese plumbing fixtures, high efficiency heating and cooling systems, and a water filtration system. The property is situated in the midtown village neighborhood in the heart of center city and equidistant to Rittenhouse and Washington Squares. Walkability is off the charts here! Access to all of the restaurants, cafes, health and cultural institutions, shops, markets, florists, bakeries, parking and transportation hubs within minutes! Jefferson two blocks away! Once in a lifetime opportunity awaits so schedule your showing today!
