As a sort of bookend to the Adolph deRoy Mark Society Hill house that we featured a couple days ago, we now present this nearby home, also built in the 1970s, also designed by a then-local architect. In this case, it was the firm of Mitchell/Giurgola, which—when both its principals were alive and here in Philadelphia—did a number of public projects for the city, including the Liberty Bell Pavilion in 1976. This Cypress Street home is an amazing property in many ways (we love the painted built-in bookshelves) but it was listed initially in September for $2.5 million and wasn't able to get that price in the current market. Two days ago, after prior price chops, it was chopped again, down $100k. Size: 3 beds, 4.5 baths, 3,115 square feet
Outdoor space: gardens, greenhouse
Small children bonus: McCall catchment area
Price: $1,875,000
· Listing: 401 Cypress St. [Prudential Fox Roach/Center City-Rittenhouse Sq.]
