It’s a three-bed place

Louis Kahn, one of the most iconic and important Philadelphia architects had several homes in the city throughout his time living and working here in the mid-1900’s. But one of the most spectacular places is this Rittenhouse Square spot, which just came on the market for $1,590,000.

The historic 19th century home still has a lot of its original details, especially in the woodwork and hardwood floors, but many parts have seen renovations. The windows have been replaced with energy-efficient windows, and the kitchen has been redone.

But even with the renovations, the place still holds a lot of its old Philly charm, in elements like the all-brick back patio, and an intricate stained glass window in one bathroom.

The house boasts around 3,000 square feet of space, with three beds and 3.5 bathrooms. It last sold in 2011 for $1.2 million, and it was listed last year for $1.75 million, but was later delisted.

You can check out the place for yourself this weekend—There’s an open house Sunday from 11:30 to 1 p.m.
