Over the Top Old City Condo for Giants Asks $1.18M

New, 3 comments


Over the top of your head that is. The cabinetry and shelving in this place appear to have been built for someone at least eight feet tall. Helpfully, someone has installed a ladder to help bridge the gap between the average person and the cabinetry in this apartment, so even if you're on the shorter side, you might make it work.

This place does come with all the amenities you'd expect from a more-than-a-million condo: stylized beams, tons of square footage, a "cooks kitchen" (better than a plumber's kitchen), and hardwood floors.

The building this condo is housed in happens to be the original home of the Philadelphia National Bank, built in 1857. The building also allows residents access to the pool at the Omni Hotel next door, and the hotel's valet service.
House Vitals:
Size: 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, 2,169 sq ft
Amenities: An in-home ladder for non-giant residents, stylized exposed beams, access to services and facilities of the Omni Hotel, and a fireplace.
Asking Price: $1,180,000
· 421 Chestnut, Apt. 502 [Trulia]
