View as Map

The 15 most expensive homes currently on the market in Philadelphia proper range in price from just shy of $3 million to nearly $16.8 million.

There is also a nice mix of condos and townhouses, though geographically the city’s titanic listings appear pretty isolated.

This map, listed in order from most to least expensive, will be updated again soon. Got a tip? Leave a comment or email Curbed Philly to give us the low-down.

1. 232-236 Walnut Street

232 Walnut St
Philadelphia, PA 19106

The most expensive home for sale in Philly at $16,795,000 clocks in at 5,400 square feet and features just two bedrooms, two full baths, and two half baths.

The surprisingly small number of bedrooms—one is the master, the other is a guest suite—leaves extra room for huge walk-in closets and dressing rooms, as well as a balcony off the master that looks out to the property’s equally large garden.

It originally hit the market in September 2016 and has been on and off the market since.

2. 10 Rittenhouse Square, 32nd-floor PH

130 S 18th St
Philadelphia, PA 19103

Jaws dropped when this penthouse on the 32nd floor of 10 Rittenhouse hit the market in early October 2017 for $15 million.

And it wasn’t because of the 9,000-square-foot interior, which is a nearly raw space—the 360-degree views were and are the most impressive feature.

The penthouse is indeed hooked up for heating, cooling, and plumbing, and that price tag comes with architectural plans to turn the space into an actual home.

3. 1414 South Penn Square, Unit PHII

1414 S Penn Square
Philadelphia, PA 19102

At $14 million, the third most expensive residence for sale in Philly is a raw space in the Residences at the Ritz-Carlton.

For reference, the top penthouse above this one sold for $12 million in June 2017, and it was also a raw space.

In addition to the 9,515 square feet of raw space to play with, there are plenty of amenities, including a lap pool, fitness center, dog run, and more.

HOA dues are $9,115 a month.

4. 500 Walnut Street, #1600

Copy Link
500 Walnut St
Philadelphia, PA 19106

A 16th-floor condo in the super swanky 500 Walnut tower overlooking Independence Mall is on the market for just under $6,959,000.

It's one of the few remaining units for sale in the 26-story tower, which was already three-quarters sold when it officially opened last October.

The 4,300-square-foot unit features three bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and two terraces.

But, while the basic floor plan is there, the unit is still a blank slate, so whoever purchases the property will be able to design and customize his or her own digs.

5. 328-330 Delancey Street

330 Delancey St
Philadelphia, PA 19106

When this Society Hill home on Delancey Street first listed in May 2016, it immediately had us at "rooftop pool."

The 7,742-square-foot property asking $6,888,000 features five bedrooms, five full baths, and three half baths.

Although it's a single-family residence, it comes with plenty of condo-like amenities, including the rooftop pool beside an outdoor fireplace, a movie theater, and a greenhouse.

This home on Rittenhouse Square was the most expensive listing on the market for a few months, until it underwent a couple of pricechops.

It’s now asking $6.75 million.

The five-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom home was featured on PlumTV as "Philadelphia's Most Extravagant House" and is one of only four townhouses on the square.

237 S 18th St
Philadelphia, PA 19103

This condo asking is in the Barclay, yet it’s been on and off the market for months, undergoing multiple pricechops: It most recently dropped from $7 million to $6.7 million.

The midcentury modern unit is actually a combination of two and was redesigned by New York-based architects Christoff : Finio.

It has six bedrooms and seven and a half bathrooms—and 30 windows. The condo fee is $4,905 a month.

2019 Delancey Pl
Philadelphia, PA 19103

This Beaux Arts home asking $5,785,000 sits on one of Rittenhouse Square’s most coveted streets.

The limestone facade stands out from the rest of the brownstones—although it was originally built in the federal style in 1860, it was later recast in 1918 as Beaux Arts by local firm DeArmond, Ashmead & Bickley.

One of its most notable residents was Nobel Prize-winning writer Pearl Buck, who bought the home in 1964 and wrote her short story collection Once Upon a Christmas here.

Today, the stately home clocks in at 7,505 square feet and features five bedrooms, five full baths, and four half baths.

Philadelphia, PA 19106

This massive Society Hill home returned to the market last September with a smaller price tag after originally listing in July 2016 for $5.75 million (it now wants $4,975,000).

It clocks in at 9,062 square feet and features four bedrooms and three baths.

There are multiple suites: The main bedroom on the second level, a guest suite on the third, and an au pair suite on the lower level.

The home was built in 1814 and was added to the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places in 1957.

There is also a separate carriage house that includes a two-car garage.

The whole shebang is asking $3.25 million.

Philadelphia, PA 19106

Michael Bouvier, the self-made furniture and real estate tycoon whose great great grandchildren would include Jackie Kennedy Onassis, owned a trio of townhouses on South Third Street in Society Hill in the late 1800s.

One of those places—the 5,900-square-foot 262 South Third Street—went on sale in November, and is now asking $1.65 million after a pair of price-chops.

Now 260 South Third Street is on the market as of late February for $2.85 million.

It’s a bigger affair: 7,244 square feet with the potential for six bedrooms, and flourishes such as a sauna on the lowest level and a living room-slash-dining room with nearly 13-foot ceilings.
