Rare opportunity to own a home in one of Philadelphia’s grandest and most coveted buildings: 1830 Rittenhouse Square, completed in 1913. Just steps away, the iconic park will be your front yard. This spacious two-bedroom/2.5 bath measures 3400 sf. Grand original features include high ceilings, abundant storage, and a 70-foot series of windows framing magnificent treetop views of the Square. Arriving on the fifth floor, turn the brass doorknob of the original 1913 carved front door and step into a long marble floored hallway. With bench seating on one side, there are nooks for display on the other. Near the end of the corridor, a door leads to a spacious Joanne Hudson kitchen. A long run of counters turns a corner into a nook, and a large island with cooktop and overhead range hood features bar seating. Ample cabinetry - some glass fronted - provides plenty of room for kitchen and dining necessities. French doors lead to a small Juliet balcony off the kitchen. Adjoining the kitchen is a room currently used for informal meals. The corridor leads to the living room, featuring gorgeous large windows with half moon panes, window seats, a fireplace (decorative only), pinpoint lighting, and wall sconces. Herringbone floors flow from the living room into a space currently used as a dining area. At one end of the living room is a separate, expansive room now used as an office. A hallway left of the front door leads to two bedrooms. The master bedroom has original arched windows. Its contemporary B&B Italia and Poliform custom closets provide ample storage. A large adjoining bath features a soaking tub, marble dropped sink, and glassed-in shower with tiled floor. The second bedroom is also spacious, with a cedar closet behind the traditional closet. Its private bath includes a glassed-in shower/tub. 1830 Rittenhouse Square was the first high-rise building on the Square. Designed by famed Philadelphia architect Frederick Webber, the original Beaux Arts detailing still remains in the building. A grand cast iron marquee above the front door is a Philadelphia landmark. Adding to its Old World elegance, 1830 is also the only building on the Square with elevator operators.
