Rittenhouse Square homes never fail to impress, but this grand 1917 Colonial Revival townhouse on Spruce Street really is tremendous.
At 6,825 square feet, it's size alone is impressive. There are five bedrooms and seven bathrooms—five full and two half baths. And it's five-stories tall.
The front door first opens to a small but beautiful foyer, an unusual entrance for your typical Rittenhouse townhouse. French doors then open to an extravagant living room—it's 31-feet long and 21-feet wide. There is crown molding throughout, original yellow pine floors, and a working fireplace—one of nine(!) throughout the home.
And those lovely French doors on the second floor? The master suite has them all to itself; they open to a Juliet balcony. Three other bedrooms have their own full baths—some of them with working fireplaces.
The basement features enough space for a gym, wine cellar, and sauna. There's also a library, a garage, a garden patio in the back, and a roof deck.
The asking price of this home is $2,950,000. For comparison, this other Rittenhouse stunner is on the same street and has a similar asking price—only it needs a lot more work.
