Property Details

238 S PHILIP PL, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19106 - This exceptional light filled 3 story townhouse is one of 37 contemporary townhomes designed by internationally acclaimed architect I.M.Pei to create a smooth transition from the modern Society Hill Towers to the colonial architecture of the surrounding neighborhood. Located on a quiet walkway, with its walled back garden and the west lawn and manicured gardens of Society Hill Towers at its front door, this residence is a quiet oasis in the heart of Society Hill. The entrance hall opens into a living room with gas fireplace, built in bookcases, and open wet bar which leads to an intimate sitting room flanked by a wall of windows opening to the landscaped garden. The first floor can accommodate a large group for entertaining as guests can easily move through the rooms and even outside into the garden in warmer weather. A wide, open, central staircase illuminated by a skylight runs the full 4 floors of the house. The second floor has 9'high ceilings with floor to ceiling windows and a powder room with a marble floor. A formal dining room overlooks the landscaped garden of Society Hill Towers from an iron balcony. A leaded glass pocket door leads to a custom kitchen with Neff cabinets, granite counter tops, a built in butcher block cutting board, and Sub-Zero, Bosch KitchenAid and Thermador appliances. An informal sitting room off the kitchen overlooking the garden to the west is a great gathering space for family and friends. The floor to ceiling window is flanked by leaded glass doors for privacy. The third floor is a large master suite, with a walk-in closet and two full baths, one with an oversized shower and the other with a whirlpool tub and washer/dryer. The second bedroom has been transformed into a master den. The lower level has been finished to include a bedroom, full ensuite bath, and a game room. The walled back garden with a bluestone patio, mature landscaping and gurgling fountain is a quiet retreat from the city. It includes a storage shed.
