An impeccable Old City penthouse in a historic Italianate building has hit the market, asking a pretty penny for a pretty spectacular space.

The three-bedroom, two-bath condo is located on the top floor of a historic Italianate building at 28 N. 3rd Street. The marble structure was built in 1857 and designed by architect Stephen D. Button for Henry Korn, a well-to-do garment merchant. It’s currently listed on the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places and has since been converted into condominiums.

But despite the building’s age and history, this particular condo takes on a much more modern, contemporary style. From the front door, a long hallway leads to the show-stopping living room and kitchen, which is flooded with natural light thanks to the wall of windows that span the room.

Complementing this wall of windows on the other side of the room is a translucent wall with built-in shelving. Right above the white and bright kitchen is an enormous skylight, letting in even more sunlight into the room. It’s not the only room in the penthouse with a skylight: The master bedroom on the other side of the translucent wall also has one.

The 2,006-square-foot condo is on the market for $1,020,000, which includes a one-year parking spot and private access to a roof deck. Along with the million-dollar price tag, there are $515 monthly HOA dues.

If you want to check out the sweet digs in person, you’re in luck: There’s an open house on Sunday, February 18 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
