Property Details

2511 WAVERLY ST, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19146 - This open concept, 3 bedroom, 2 bath townhome is a unique architectural masterpiece on one of Fitler Square's loveliest tree-lined blocks. Renowned architect Anne Tyng designed this home for herself and applied her ideas of space-frame architecture, showcasing "interlocking geometric patterns to create light-filled, inhabitable spaces." (NY Times, May 1, 2012). Character and details abound, including wide-plank hardwood floors throughout, 10' to 11' ceilings, open stairs with industrial mesh screens (originally used by Ting when designing the Yale Art Gallery), big windows with spectacular south-facing light, and a small rear patio and shaded side patio. Tyng designed this home to be livable--just well thought out. The (1st floor) is a totally open living and dining space with a stainless kitchen and a solid butcher block island with ample drawer space. Large circular sink, Viking range/oven, and Liebherr fridge. 10' exposed ceiling, very cool lighting, and a huge window overlooking the brick patio. The (2nd floor) offers one bedroom with nice closets and 3 windows on 2 exposures. Plus a smaller bedroom with Murphy bed and closet; a perfect office, guest room, or nursery. There is a tile bath with double vanity, tub and stall shower. The (3rd floor) is an original mid-century modern showcase. Exposed brick and beams, slate wood burning fireplace, built-in seating, and glass doors (frosted for privacy and light, but with the top clear for views) on all 4 corners, SE, SW, NE, and NW; each with a small Juliet Balcony. And skyline views (full Center City Skyline view in the winter, lush tree-top view in summer). Steps up to a private sleeping area with a direct view of tree canopy to the east and sweeping skyline views to the west (in the winter it is all panoramic views). You should feel it to really appreciate it. The bedroom has big closets and a European style full bath (that could be a more traditional half bath if preferred). The Nice big full basement with excell
