Property Description

Rare opportunity to own a home in one of Philadelphia’s grandest and most coveted buildings: 1830 Rittenhouse Square, completed in 1913. Just steps away, the iconic park will be your front yard. This spacious two-bedroom/2.5 bath measures 3400 sf. Grand original features include high ceilings, abundant storage, and a 70-foot series of windows framing magnificent treetop views of the Square. Arriving on the fifth floor, turn the brass doorknob of the original 1913 carved front door and step into a long marble floored hallway. With bench seating on one side, there are nooks for display on the other. Near the end of the corridor, a door leads to a spacious Joanne Hudson kitchen. A long run of counters turns a corner into a nook, and a large island with cooktop and overhead range hood features bar seating. Ample cabinetry - some glass fronted - provides plenty of room for kitchen and dining necessities. French doors lead to a small Juliet balcony off the kitchen. Adjoining the kitchen is a room currently used for informal meals. The corridor leads to the living room, featuring gorgeous large windows with half moon panes, window seats, a fireplace (decorative only), pinpoint lighting, and wall sconces. Herringbone floors flow from the living room into a space currently used as a dining area. At one end of the living room is a separate, expansive room now used as an office. A hallway left of the front door leads to two bedrooms. The master bedroom has original arched windows. Its contemporary B&B Italia and Poliform custom closets provide ample storage. A large adjoining bath features a soaking tub, marble dropped sink, and glassed-in shower with tiled floor. The second bedroom is also spacious, with a cedar closet behind the traditional closet. Its private bath includes a glassed-in shower/tub. 1830 Rittenhouse Square was the first high-rise building on the Square. Designed by famed Philadelphia architect Frederick Webber, the original Beaux Arts detailing still remains in the building. A grand cast iron marquee above the front door is a Philadelphia landmark. Adding to its Old World elegance, 1830 is also the only building on the Square with elevator operators. With Acceptable price, Seller offering one year parking at near by parking garage.
