A posh Rittenhouse townhome with private parking? Run, don’t walk.
A look into the living room, featuring plenty of natural light
“This elegant Grand Federal townhouse is located on one of the most beautiful tree-lined streets in the most sought-aft er location of Rittenhouse Square,” explains listing agent Joanne Davidow of 2017 Delancey, which recently hit the market with a $3.695 million price tag. The five-bed, three-full and two half-bath property sits within just over 4,552 square feet and even features garage parking for one car and driveway parking for another.
The home boats high ceilings.
Walk inside the handsome street doors to find a 27-foot living room with 12-foot high ceilings, French doors and gorgeous architectural details like crown molding. “Th e 27-foot living room with magnificent oversize wooden french doors, the south light streaming in through the large windows, the high ceilings and the beautiful Pennsylvania Bluestone fireplace create quite a setting,” Davidow adds of the space. Follow the wide plank pine floors throughout the home, including the formal dining room, which also features another Bluestone fireplace, the second out of eight total fireplaces.
A clad white kitchen connects to the outdoor terrace on the first level, perfect for alfresco dining.
Heading into the kitchen, light floods the room thanks to large windows and an overhead skylight, foreshadowing the weather before stepping onto the nearby dining terrace. Upstairs on the second floor, the primary suite awaits for future homeowners to wind down in.

An en suite primary bath features two sinks, a soaking tub and a steam shower. Head across the way to the library/den to escape within the pages of your new favorite tome—all while catching looks at the street below through large bay windows…or the outdoor terrace they lead to. Four more bedrooms exist for children or guest rooms on the third and fourth floors.

Below, an area perfect for an at-home gym and additional storage ensures city living is a breeze. “The floor plan for this home works well for a family of two as well as for a family with young children or older visiting children and grandchildren,” Davidow says. Outside of the home, being nearby to popular restaurants like Barclay Prime, Parc and Vernick certainly don’t hurt, either.
