Four stories and 10,490 s.f. of Federal architecture is a major architectural trophy, especially when it's three blocks from Rittenhouse Square. This 110-year-old home has aged in a dignified way, looking just as stately as it must have in 1905. You don't make it to the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places overnight.
One growing pain its had is its subdivision at some point into multiple apartments. And now the question is whether the new appreciative owner will restore its holistic splendor as a mansion. Or will they continue to rent out the existing units, so that multiple people can enjoy the original stained glass and herringbone wood floors. Either way, it's probably $3,250,000 well spent on a beautiful home.
There's an elevator in there, too, but it doesn't work. Imagine the stories it's kept inside.
BTW, check out that gorgeous showstopper of a sink.
