Nestled on a picturesque side street in Philadelphia's Rittenhouse Square neighborhood, this 44' wide Carriage House is a meticulous repurposing of a centuries-old Horse Stable. Loaded with artisan craftsmanship and abundant, innovative storage, this 5,000+ square foot gem combines the historic charm of original features with modern interior design. Through a private, gated 2-4 car parking area and an exceptional garden space, enter into a gallery-like living-dining-kitchen area, impressive in scale and featuring soaring 12-feet, steel-beamed ceilings, custom cabinetry, radiant heated wide plank hardwood floors and historically preserved tile walls. Multiple arched doors to the garden lend an indoor-outdoor lifestyle that is hard to come by in city living- the ultimate opportunity for those who love to entertain at home! The expansive, custom Pappajohn Custom Millwork kitchen is a chef's dream, a large kitchen island with seating, stainless steel cabinets and drawers, fine appliances, a retractable privacy screen and natural light pouring in from wall-to-wall windows facing out onto beautiful Van Pelt Street. Also, on the main level is a Family Room with garden access, as well as a gym, full bath and powder room. A magnificently airy, sculptural staircase leads to the second floor, which includes 4 bedrooms and 3 well-appointed modern baths, each with radiant tile flooring. The Master suite features exposed brick walls, a seating area, and a big floor-to-ceiling window with a remarkable view overlooking a distinctive floating garden. Three additional bedrooms are flexible in their use- a music room, a home office, the possibilities are endless. The second floor also boasts a laundry room and an abundance of cleverly designed storage throughout. Up another flight is a bright, window-lined sunroom, a perfect reading area that looks out and opens out onto the solar-paneled roof. No detail has been overlooked in this home, a unique urban oasis for the Buyer in search of modern sensibility within a historic environment.
