Bundled in an elegant collection of nine custom properties, known as Fitler 9, this residence is steps away from the tranquil walking trails on the Schuylkill Banks and bustling urban atmosphere of Rittenhouse Square. After parking your vehicle in the private, two-car garage, you can navigate each level of your home using the five-stop elevator for ultimate ease and practicality. Step through the double-door entryway on the first floor to soak in the sweeping views of the riverfront and skyline as you enjoy dinner in the gourmet chef’s kitchen, which is updated with the latest, ultramodern appliances and a waterfall island with seating for four. Not to mention, each level of the 5,100-square-foot floor plan flaunts hardwood flooring and floor-to-ceiling windows along with four bedroom suites replete with en suite bathrooms.
On the second floor, a family room is illuminated by the warm glow of a gas fireplace—a communal space perfect for a versatile playroom or media center. Upstairs, the third floor boasts master suites and a marble bathroom, finished with a walk-in shower, twin vanities, vast closets and heated flooring. Additionally, the sitting room on the fourth floor features lofty, two-story ceilings, which could thoroughly accommodate any gym equipment imaginable. Don’t forget to venture up to the top floor to appreciate the marvelous pilothouse, which reveals porcelain floors and a wet bar, along with the powder room and rooftop deck offering a 360-degree aerial view of the sprawling city underfoot.

All of these amenities reside in one of the best residential sections of Center City. “Fitler Square is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the entire city,” says listing agent John Bolaris. “It’s family-friendly and complete with cozy cafes, hip wine bars and luscious parks. Nearby, there is the University of Pennsylvania, CHOP and Penn Medicine.” What more could you ask for? If these perks weren’t enough, then the seven-year tax abatement should do the trick. $3.55 million, 249 S. 24th St., Ste.
