It’s one of the most expensive home sales in Philly this year

The Society Hill home where James and Dolley Madison lived before becoming president and First Lady of the United States has been sold for $2.9 million, becoming one of the most expensive home sales in Philadelphia so far this year.

That’s $300,000 under its original asking price when it listed for $3.2 million in May.

The stunning Federal-style home features four bedrooms and 4.5 baths and is a spacious 3,145 square feet. The Madisons lived here from 1794 to 1797, and over the years owners have preserved much of the home’s architectural details, while also making a few significant changes, including the addition of a New Orleans-style back porch.
