From the outside, this Washington Square spot looks like a classic Philly townhome: it has the colonial look with a brick facade, shutters, and gabled roof, and it butts right up against the popular park.
But inside, it’s a different story entirely.
The interior of the 228 West Washington Square home—which recently dropped on the market for just shy of $4 million—looks like it stepped right out of the countryside in Italy or France. A large living room features an opulent chandelier and marble fireplace, leading into a dining room with a similar aesthetic.
Further back, a long kitchen leads out to the focus of the home: a sun-soaked atrium, with plants hanging from the massive skylight, and brick stairs leading down to an indoor courtyard with an outdoor feel.
The home continues into a lower level, which offers up a kind of renovated cellar feel, with brick archways and stone walls throughout, and (yes, another) kitchen/bar.
The home offers over 6,000 square feet of space, five bedrooms and six baths, and there’s an open house this Sunday from noon to 3 p.m.
