While we were fawning over this Rittenhouse fixer upper, here's a nearby townhouse that's managed to maintain its original grandeur for the past 123 years. Located on the edge of Rittenhouse Square and Fitler Square, this 7-bed, 5.5-bath home on Spruce Street was built in 1893 and includes much of its original architectural details, including French crown molding, large arched doorways, and bay windows.
The handsome home clocks in at 5,642 square feet and includes a double-wide living area, a gallery entrance hall, and a recently renovated gourmet kitchen on the first floor. French doors in the dining area open up to a two-tier deck that leads to an English garden.
The master suite has the second floor to itself and features two walk-in closets and a bathroom with a marble vanity. There's also a library with built-in book cases, a bay window, and a fireplace.
The basement is its own spacious lair, with a gym and a nanny suite that has a kitchen, eating area, and bathroom.
The asking price of this townhouse on 2108 Spruce Street is $3,900,000.
