Description

The architecture speaks for itself at this Sandy Ward-designed, 19.5ft wide residence with four levels of living space awash in ever-changing natural East and West sunlight. Built in 1989, this modern design has elements reminiscent of the earliest Art Moderne styles with smooth curves, intriguing angles, glass block and a wealth of broad picture windows. Located in the Meredith School catchment in Queen Village with two-car, off street, gated parking, this home~s interiors are the definition of ~airy~ with an eye-popping, double-height dining room that is open to a step-down living room with a wood-burning fireplace and access to a private red brick rear patio large enough for a grill, dining table and lounge area. The living area is finished with oak hardwood floors. Its clean lines, lighting and wall space are perfect for the discerning art collector. At the front of the home a marble-tiled foyer with powder room leads to a breakfast bar and custom kitchen well designed to maximize the space with two full runs of handcrafted cabinetry, Sub-Zero refrigerator, stainless Bosch dishwasher, gas cooktop/griddle and wall oven, tile backsplash and door to the front patio. On the second level, the private quarters begin with an open lounge/den with fantastic morning to afternoon light, powder room and a wet bar with undermount Sub-Zero. A guest bedroom with balcony and en suite bathroom complete this level. The main bedroom suite is on the third floor and is a true retreat with a wood-burning fireplace, dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows, a balcony, skylight, custom-built cherry cabinetry, spacious closet space and a full bath with double vanity, oversized Jacuzzi tub, stall shower and skylight. An additional en suite bedroom on this level has its own balcony. As a bonus, the walkout lower level with wall of windows and access to the rear of the property is finished and makes a comfortable home office, play room, fitness room or media room. An oversized laundry room and two separate storage areas complete the lower level. In a neighborhood of historical streetscapes that only Philadelphia offers and walkable score of 98 to fine dining and other conveniences, this one of a kind light-filled residence is ideally located and ideal for the buyer seeking a desirable floor plan for entertaining and daily living.
