    Description

    This is the one you've been waiting for! Once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a stunning home that's custom rehab of an extra-wide historic Van Pelt carriage house built in 1900. All of its 2,440 square feet are on street level, plus one-car garage with interior access to the house - kiss goodbye to ALL stairs forever! Located on the gorgeously picturesque, cherry tree-lined and quiet 200 South block of Van Pelt Street (voted as 7th most charming city block by Philadelphia Magazine!), just steps off the beautiful green oasis of Rittenhouse Square in the coveted Greenfield Elementary School catchment. With many of the original details kept, the home has preserved much of the character and architectural charm one expects in a carriage house, yet it's also been lovingly restored, rebuilt and impeccably updated by a team of professional decorators and master craftsmen. With only a small portion of the property's having second floor above, it boasts spectacular 18+ foot vaulted ceilings with custom-made skylights in the living room as well as in its two main bedrooms and their respective bathrooms, allowing for plenty of natural light throughout and a possibility of adding a roof deck. The home's centerpiece is the striking 31x28 living/family room featuring the original stained wooden beams carrying the lighting, visually soothing two-tone walls painted by a professional artist, cherry hardwood floor, double-length working wood-burning fireplace, built-in 10-tier (!) book shelving with a rolling ladder, plus custom-built serving bar area - all perfect for entertaining! Two main bedrooms, both with hardwood floor and large closets, have their windows facing away from the already quite street, making them extra tranquil; each bedroom has its own private bathroom, with the main one being oversized and having heated floor and full-size jacuzzi. Large bi-level walk-in closet in between the main bedrooms has extra entresol/attic space. 3rd bedroom also has a closet, and it shares a full "Jack-and-Jill" bathroom with the adjacent guestroom/office study that has separate door entry and built-in book shelving. Striking, custom-built rustic yet contemporary kitchen showcases an amazing 90-degree window/skylight, cherry wood cabinetry, granite countertops and eating island, stainless high-end Dacor and Fisher & Paykel appliances, heated floor that matches the original brick floor preserved over part of the kitchen area, large pantry and extra storage areas, plus hidden full-size washer and dryer side-by-side. Powder room is conveniently entered from the kitchen and has a designer's vanity. Large foyer with the coat closet is located between the street and garage entrances, with additional two-room storage area behind it. Three separate zones for baseboard heating as well as three separate A/C units for cooling are energy-saving, with an additional remote-control operated cool/heat wall unit in the living room for extra comfort. Wiring for multiple security zones throughout. Remarkably thoughtful, painstaking and imaginative carriage-house rehab that you would be proud to own and happy to enjoy, this is truly a unique, must-see home and your rare chance to live on one of Center City Philadelphia's premier and most sought-after blocks!
