Will Georges Perrier Finally Bid Farewell to His House Too?

New, 3 comments

This weekend, chef-restaurateur Georges Perrier commemorated his final night at Le Bec-Fin, an establishment that changed the shape of fine dining in Philadelphia. Eric Ripert, the chef at New York's Le Bernardin, told the New York Times, “Georges represented Philadelphia for a long, long time, and he represented fine dining in America for a long, long time." Of his future plans, Perrier said, “I’m going to write a book, and it’s going to be a dirty book!” The question now is, where will he be writing this book? His house in Chestnut Hill has been on the market for more than a year. Last September, the price was chopped by $150,000; the current sale price is $2.5 million. Let's look at some details:

Size: Five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, three stories, 9,000 square feet
Extra space: Guest house over garage with bedroom, bathroom and kitchen; third floor with rec room and additional space for bedrooms; acre of land
Chef's special: Joanne Hudson kitchen with Wolf appliances, oversized granite island, 2,000-plus bottle wine cellar
Seasonal bonuses: Winter: Five-plus fireplaces. Summer: indoor/outdoor sound system, gardens, in-ground pool
