A historical masterpiece, dating back to 1780, that has been restored to 21st century perfection. Enter the home and you will be greeted with a dramatic sweeping staircase in the center hallway. To the right is a bright modern eat-in kitchen with custom cherrywood cabinetry, granite countertops, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances and a heated floor. Pass through the French doors to a very lush, walled garden complete with an irrigation system. There is an eating area under a pergola, a wrought iron gate and a picturesque brick garden shed. The first floor also has a spacious dining room and living room with a fireplace, one of three in the house and a powder room. On the 2nd level is the first of two master bedroom suites with a private bath, spacious closets and another marble fireplace. On this floor you'll also find a garden view bedroom with a private bathroom, and the large laundry room. The third level takes you to the bilevel master bedroom with two large walk-in closets with a laundry chute, and a luxurious bathroom with a large shower room and free-standing claw foot tub. Above the master bedroom is an exercise/media loft with a wet bar that leads out to a large deck with views of St Peter's Church, Society Hill and the Philadelphia skyline. A great office/sitting space is outside of this master bedroom along with a 4th full bathroom. A bonus den/play room has been added to the basement. Other features include dual-zoned heating and air conditioning, radiant-heated bathroom and kitchen floors, 10 foot ceilings, interior and exterior shutters, large sunny windows (most have been updated) in every room and exposure on 3 sides of the home. The entire home went through a major renovation in 2006 including an update of all systems & mechanicals, electric and plumbing. A short walk away are the Head House Square Market, which has farmers and craft markets on weekends, and Penn's Landing, offering spectacular river views. Majestic homes such as this do not come on the market often so call now for a private showing.
