We’d only expect such a handsome Federal-style home to be found in none other than Society Hill. The neighborhood has a host of historic homes that are for sale, this extra-wide brick rowhome included.
To describe its size in a word: Massive. It clocks in at 9,062 square feet and features four bedrooms and three baths. There are multiple suites: The master bedroom on the second level, a guest suite on the third, and an au pair suite on the lower level.
The home was built in 1814 and was added to the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places in 1957. The original details are beautiful, including the winding grand staircase and the pine floors. But it’s also livable for the modern family—there’s an elevator that goes to all five stories of the home.
Its location at 309 S. 3rd Street puts it on the same block as three other historic homes for sale, including the equally grand John Penn House.
