At $4.75M federal-style Rittenhouse home, opulence is key

Built in 1860, the home is a picture of luxury

There’s an abundance of federal and colonial-style houses in Philly, many dating back multiple centuries.

But only a select few, like this spot at 1830 Delancey Place, still feature those ornate details often associated with the style.

The 1860-built home just came on the market for $4.75 million, offering a total of five beds and five baths. And everything, from the chandeliers in almost every room, to the multiple marble fireplaces (including one in the master bath), screams luxury. There’s even a a working elevator.

The home is four stories tall and three windows wide—so it’s not your typical skinny rowhome. But it does still have the brick facade that’s so popular in neighboring Rittenhouse townhomes. Additionally, it offers a private courtyard out back, with columns and a mini fountain, as well as a roof deck. To top it all off, the home offers an attached, two-car garage.
