Anybody who is anybody who has ever tried to boil water will tell you that a gas range is pretty much de rigueur for culinary mastery. But this 1,600 square-foot, three bedroom, two bath condominium strives to compensate for its epicurean shortcomings. The three-floor residence has windows on three sides and "an uninterrupted view of the Philadelphia city skyline." The living room features a 20-foot ceiling, hardwood floor, and wood-burning fireplace. The "updated" kitchen features Corian counters and all new stainless steel appliances: electric range (ack!), microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator and a full-size washer and dryer tucked into a kitchen closet. There's a brand new cedar deck up top, which includes "four large fiberglass planters, which are well-populated with a rich array of perennials that need only the addition of a few seasonal annuals to complete this small 'English garden.'"
