This five-bedroom Gothic Revival in Rittenhouse Square will trade you $1,850,000 for some very questionable design choices, as illustrated by the sassy juxtaposition of carpet and wallpaper borne by the grand stair. Built in 1862, the house features three and a half bathrooms, and per the listing, "abundant character." It's 25-feet wide, and boasts a separate ground-level apartment, 11-foot ceilings on both the first and second floor, original moldings, and six fireplaces. The kitchen is refreshingly plain and boasts newer appliances. There's one year of pre-paid parking a block away from the residence.
