Philly loves its roof decks. But while their sole purpose is to provide a space to enjoy nice weather, in the summer heat they can become unbearable. At this Society Hill penthouse, that’s not a problem.
The condo, which recently hit the market for $475,000, features a glass sunroom on its rooftop. What’s more, it’s climate-controlled and there’s access to an uncovered portion of the roof, too.
The current owner, who shared the listing with Curbed Philly, said of the 1,600-square-foot penthouse, “It really feels like a suburban house once you get up to the atrium and outdoor area.” There’s room enough for an urban garden, too.
The rooftop sunroom is definitely a highlight of the home, but there are other interesting details, like a wood-burning fireplace, spiral staircase, and the chance to turn the two-bedroom, two-bath home into a three-bedroom.
There are two open houses for the penthouse on Saturday, July 15 and Sunday, July 16 from 1 to 3 p.m. both days.
