Discover expansive designer living in this contemporary five-bedroom plus office, five-and-a-half-bathroom elevator townhouse featuring magazine-worthy interiors, phenomenal storage, private outdoor space, and parking in sought-after Society Hill. This breathtaking move-in ready residence provides a wonderful footprint for busy daily life and elegant entertaining with five levels of expanded living space, luxurious beds and baths, and a charming patio. Soaring ceilings with recessed lighting and designer fixtures rise over gleaming hardwood floors and spectacular art walls featuring custom niches and cabinetry. From the bright foyer, you're ushered into a lovely dining room wrapped by built-ins and a clerestory window. Below, the sunken living room invites you to relax in front of the gas fireplace while French doors tempt you out to the patio for a seamless indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Off the dining room, a butler's pantry/command center leads to the eat-in chef's kitchen, where stone counters and subway tile backsplashes top rows of custom Joanne Hudson cabinetry. The fleet of upscale Miele appliances includes a vented gas cooktop, wall oven, microwave, warming drawer, French door refrigerator, and dishwasher. The sunny breakfast room is perfect for casual meals, and a coat closet and powder room complete the well-planned level. Head upstairs or board your private five-stop elevator to discover the second level's full-floor owner's retreat — a serene sanctuary featuring a sprawling bedroom, a laundry room, and walls of custom closets, cabinetry, and shelving. The en-suite spa bathroom impresses with a glass-brick rain shower, soaking tub, and roomy floating vanity. An extra-large office on this level could easily serve as a work-from-home destination, a nursery, or a sixth bedroom as needs dictate. On the third floor, two secondary suites enjoy large windows, excellent closet space, and private baths, while the top floor offers two more bedrooms and a fifth full bathroom. On the lower level, an oversized rec room with a separate entrance and a wall of built-ins is perfect as a playroom, media room, home gym, au pair suite, or all of the above, with exceptional storage, a climatized wine room, shop area, secondary laundry room with back-up refrigerator and full bathroom nearby. This flawless home includes a green roof and zoned HVAC with 13 heating zones and three for air-conditioning, and two gated parking spots. Located on a pristine tree-lined street in the heart of coveted Society Hill, this home is just inches from glorious outdoor space, including gardens, playgrounds, and historic national monuments. Enjoy easy access to fantastic Center City shopping, dining, and nightlife, while multiple bus lines, PATCO and SEPTA stations, and the Delaware Expressway put the rest of the city within easy reach.
