Description

Distinguished 3 story urbanite commercially zoned CMX-2 building featuring 3 beds and 2.5 baths in one of the best locations in all of Philadelphia. Half a block off south street on the edge of Fitler, Rittenhouse, and Grad Hospital. A truly unique corner property full of distinction and unparalleled character and charm. Currently used as a residential home this property brings tons of possibility for a multi unit conversion or live and work situation. The property is stunning and features all the priceless design attributes that make a lucrative property: 9 and 10' ceilings throughout, gorgeous unobstructed natural light that only a corner property has, original features, large 3 stories and a walk up roof deck with 320 degree views of the city, a plumbed greenhouse room and CMX-2 commercial zoning with project plans and developed partner relations for a Green mixed use multi unit property including a 4th story expansion. Seller willing to assist if interested in that development project.Sellers are international stage green building, sustainability and regenerative development authorities, and would be interested in sharing their plans for the property which they would pursue if not for the need for relocation. The property was a green building landmark in the late 70+GGs and early 80+GGs, nationally known among leaders of the movement. It was toured by 10+GGs of thousands of visitors who came to learn about passive solar and other green approaches. It was the headquarters for the Mid-Atlantic Solar Energy Association (MASEA, no longer exists having transformed into other organizations).The property makes a perfect location for many uses with the great feel of a commercially zoned area that feels like a tree lined residential neighborhood. Upon entry you are greeted by an open light filled eat-in-kitchen and dining area, complete with recessed lighting, 10' ceilings, transom windows reaching the ceiling height, wood floors, and stainless steel appliances. The first floor also features a first floor office or bedroom with a floor to ceiling glass block window wall and double door entry, 10' ceiling and exposed brick wall. The first floor has access to the cathedral ceiling greenhouse complete with skylight. A tucked away half bath and a storage closet with exterior access complete the first floor. The wooden risers of the staircase lead you up to the second floor where you find another beautifully open room with windows on both ends and 9'+ ceilings and wood floors. The second floor also tucks away a corner bedroom suite complete with private full bath. Cork floors, exposed brick walls, and a sliding barn door complete this astounding light filled private suite. The 3rd floor leads to a sensational primary suite which encompasses the entire floor. This bedroom suite features random width pine flooring, a vaulted ceiling reaching 10'+ and a sitting area. The 3rd floor is finished by a tucked away master bath and an oversized dressing room which features easy access laundry. Every room in this house takes full advantage of being a corner property bringing so much elegance that only unobstructed natural sunlight can bring. This home commands so many desirables features that you can rarely match without building new. The 3rd floor walks up to the roof deck which features oversized 42+G- railings and tremendous views of the city skyline. The neighborhood amenities are topflight and with a walk score of 98 you are never more than 200 feet from any convenience or need. Located within the Rittenhouse Greenfield school catchment you can take full advantage of the city life amenities and experience by making this your home. Quick access to 76 and all highways as well.
