As you enter from the tree-lined block into the tranquil garden of this stunning home, you realize what a special place this home's designer-owner has created. This light-filled row house with a modernist sensibility was fully redesigned in 2015 to take full advantage of its second lot. Oversized doors and windows craft extensive views into the private garden and patio throughout the first floor~s open plan. The gut renovation includes upscale finishes, including site-finished, wide plank, white oak wood floors; custom live edge wood desk and master vanity; custom built stairs; solid core doors; Anderson and Pella casement windows; Velux operable skylight in the kitchen; and Emtek hardware. Eco-friendly paints, insulation, and a whole-house water filtration system further make clear that every design detail has been carefully considered, including space-saving pocket doors in the walk-in pantry and bedrooms. The city skyline views from the third floor deck are incredible. Just down the hall on this third floor is the generous master bedroom, with two closets in addition to a large walk-in closet, and a master bathroom with heated Portuguese limestone floors. More storage space is offered in the waterproofed basement, which also includes a finished laundry room. A seven-foot wooden gate creates privacy and security from the street. The home has an attractive 10-year tax abatement in place. Its enviable location on a quite, scenic, historic block is just a short walk to Rittenhouse Square, Fitler Square park, Schuykill River Park/Trail, Penn, Drexel and restaurants and shops in every direction. Hurry this one won't last.
