Description

Rarely offered I.M.Pei corner home from the Original Townhouses near the Delaware River Parks, the Society Hill Towers and the grounds and gardens surrounding this very special location. This home is the end of the row and includes all three floors of East facing windows in addition to Northern and Southern exposures. This provides 3 sides of light and air that are not available in the standard floor plans. The dramatic wide central stair is iconic to these homes and with the skylight on top and the stair open on four levels, light streams in all day. The first floor offers a spacious foyer with a coat closet, powder room, a sitting room in front and a pretty dining room with a wall of North Facing doors and windows to the private landscaped patio and door to secure Deeded Parking space. The terrific kitchen has copious counter space, newer appliances, a tile floor and custom lighting. The second level features a living room with ceiling height book shelves, a dramatic brick wood-burning fireplace, tall glass doors to a South Facing small deck/balcony in addition to the tall windows facing East with morning light. There is a full bath on this level and these homeowners use the quiet North facing room as their Master Bedroom. Wood floors and high ceilings are consistent through out. The third floor offers 3 bedrooms. The Larger Bedroom has an ensuite bath and a wall of closets. The two additional bedrooms share the hall bath and the skylight over the central stair lights the hall. The basement holds the mechanical systems, a storage room, a laundry area, a full bath and a room that this homeowner uses as an office. There are windows in this office and the room can easily serve as a guest suite or a nanny suite. This is a very special Society Hill location with little foot and car traffic, plenty of sun and sky, perfect for a family or empty nester seeking space for entertaining and visitors, close to restaurants including Zahav, Ritz movie theaters, Old City, Independence Square Park and 3 Bears Park. This home is in the George A McCall Elementary School, Grades K-8.
