Recognized as one of Philadelphia’s most coveted addresses, Delancey Place needs no introduction thanks to townhouses like this that further elevate the location with refined taste and exquisite details.The second-floor living room is open and airy, thanks to large windows that let in an abundance of natural light
Located on the 1800 block of Delancey’s idyllic tree-lined sidewalks, a traditional-style townhouse is more than meets the curbside eye, and certainly embodies the address’ prestige. “The street offers a quiet respite from the bustle of the neighborhood while being situated just one block from Rittenhouse Square Park,” says listing agent Margaux Pelegrin. Explore the grand abode, built in 1918, that epitomizes historic elegance and sophistication with every modern comfort one could desire. Housing five bedrooms and four full- and one half-bathrooms within over 5,000 square feet, the five-story newly renovated property is sure to wow with all custom finishes.
Upon entering the awe-inspiring entry vestibule, walk through French doors to a formal living room and spacious dining area. The white oak herringbone floors, custom white built-ins and vast window create a bright, airy space with a contemporary feel. Across the hall, a lavish eat-in kitchen awaits with milled cabinetry and multiple pantries. Navy blue and gold accents pair perfectly with the white marble countertops and center island. With access to high-end appliances like a 36-inch Sub-Zero refrigerator, 24-inch freezer and Wolf stove, any chef would feel right at home.

To steal a glimpse of the primary suite, take the fully restored center elevator or staircase, styled with white balusters and a black handrail. Spanning the front of the property, the suite features an extensive bay window overlooking Delancey as well as an en suite bathroom complete with heated mosaic marble floors.
For a breath of fresh air, ride the elevator to the sky-lit fourth floor, which not only consists of a roof terrace but two top-level bedrooms with outdoor access. The roof is undoubtedly a showstopper and ideal for entertaining. Invite friends and family to watch the sun set over Rittenhouse for a barbecue. The outdoor kitchen, sweeping views and built-in speakers set the stage for the finest warm-weather gatherings, but the house’s amenities do not stop there. A finished basement boasts a state-of-the-art wine cellar and gym with the Isawall exercise system for those who prefer at-home workouts. $6.25 million, Margaux Pelegrin, Compass, 215.205.2400, compass.com
