    Description

    This is 2143 Locust Street. This stunningly iconic home was built in 1905 and designed by Philadelphia architect Charles Barton Keen and offers over 6,000 sq. ft. of living space with its exquisite early 20th century details and finishes of a modern urban home. It is located in one of Philadelphia's most coveted neighborhoods, just 3 blocks to the Rittenhouse Square Park entrance. You will be welcomed to the home through the oak-walled, marbled floor vestibule. The original leaded glass oak doorway opens into a large sitting area complete with a wood burning fireplace. Continue through this floor into the cherry paneled formal dining room that can comfortably conform for 12 or more guests, with a nod to the architectural details of the beveled glass windows. A wood burning fireplace completes this glorious entertaining space. Pass into the modern kitchen and its stainless steel finish that offers ample counter space, clear door cabinets, commercial grade appliances including a Thermador 6 burner range plus grill, Sub-Zero side-by-side refrigerator/freezer and Miele dishwasher. Continuing up the sweeping stairs to the 2nd level, you will pass by the detailed carved pocket doors into the formal living room. Dramatic high ceilings, cherry paneled walls, leaded glass windows that fill the room with southern facing light, wood burning fireplace, and built in bookcases. Down the hall, pass by a hall bath and full studio space with a wood burning fireplace. This could easily be converted back to a spacious en-suite bedroom with a walk in closet. Moving onto the 3rd level you will find the primary bedroom suite, complete with full walk in wardrobe, and upgraded modern bath. The bedroom space is thoughtfully designed with detailed custom cabinetry and bedding which offers additional storage solutions. An additional en-suite guest room with private bath, completes the 3rd floor. The final level is a fully separate 1 bedroom apartment complete with separate utilities, modern kitchen and bath, spacious living room and bedroom. The bedroom is also designed with built-in custom contemporary bedding, and cabinetry, laundry cabinet with w/d, plus 2 fireplaces. Perfect for an au pair, nanny, or investment opportunity. This floor could also be converted as two additional en-suite bedrooms, each with its own fireplace, and brilliant daytime lighting and skyline views at night. The finished lower level hosts a zoning-approved, full professional at home office space plus powder room. This could easily be the solution to work at home possibilities. Other options could be an at home gym, classroom, or media room. Additional architectural notes include both the first and second floors offer high ceilings and original parquet cherry floors. A full service elevator can easily transport owners and guests between the first, second and third floors. All en-suite bathrooms are detailed with granite walls, countertops and flooring. All millwork and hardware in the house is completely custom and high-end. All custom built in furniture will be included as part of the sale of the home. There is a mansard slate and copper roof. Many of the mechanicals have been recently replaced and/or updated, including redundant heating and cooling systems, and their hard-wired security systems. Truly a unique find offering sophistication and design within this classic early 20th century townhome.
