From Victorian Estate to Rittenhouse Square Condominium

Rittenhouse Square is one of the five original Philadelphia squares designed by William Penn in the 17th century. The area first became a fashionable downtown Philly address in the mid 1800s and has never lost its panache. You'll still see a number of mansions built for Philadelphia's Victorian aristocracy facing the square but modern Rittenhouse Square is a vibrant mix of culture, commerce, history and urban sophistication.

Today you'll find plenty of condo conversions in Rittenhouse Square, updated brownstones, old homes converted into modern urban lofts, subdivided mansions, two-story duplexes, single family row houses, pre-war highrises and contemporary architecture. Though you'll find some new developments, this part of Philadelphia is prime real estate with a great deal of infill and very little room for new construction.

Prices for Rittenhouse homes start around 400k
