Here's a huge multi-level condo for less than a million dollars. While it's not located in Rittenhouse or Fitler Square, it offers the high-end amenities for less because of its location. The location also means that this place has awesome views from the windows and from the deck.
The listing mentions that this place was designed by a famous Philly interior designer, and it shows. Of course, only a famous interior designer would insist that the rustic looking wood in the office area come directly from the side of a Nebraska barn. It's reclaimed.
Though the barn wood seems gimmicky at best, this place does have one very strong selling point: the stunning views and the wraparound porch.
Size: Three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and 2,262 sq ft.
Amenities Include: Exposed brick and beams, high ceilings, huge windows, a soaking tub, reclaimed Nebraska barn wood, a huge wraparound deck, and a security system. The heat is also paid for through the condo association.
Asking price: $824,900
