A raw penthouse in the 33-story 10 Rittenhouse condominium tower has hit the market to the tune of $15 million, making it the second most expensive home for sale in Philly right now.
It is a massive condo that takes up more than 9,000 square feet of space on the 32nd floor of the Robert A.M. Stern-designed tower. Although the building faces Rittenhouse Square, the penthouse has astonishing 360-degree views, with the Center City to one side and the rising University City skyline to the other.
Of course, buying this pad means whoever snatches it up may want to come armed with an architect (though there are already architectural and furniture plans by Christopher Beardsley and Meg Rodgers, respectively.). It’s the ultimate fixer-upper in a way, a blank slate that the future owner can make his or her own. The only major change the previous owner made was installing floor-to-ceiling windows so as not to obstruct any of the jaw-dropping views.
While there are no number of bathrooms or bedrooms to tout, there are two terraces facing east, west, and south and four parking spaces in the garage. It’s also hooked up for plumbing, heating, and cooling.
And living in 10 Rittenhouse also means access to a pool, fitness center, and a chauffeur-driven Mercedes S550 town car.
Whenever this penthouse gets fixed up, it has the potential to be one of the most bonker homes in the city. But it won’t come cheap: In addition to the $15 million price tag, penthouse-living will cost $10,029 a month in HOA fees.
