2110 Walnut St., Unit 201

LOWDOWN ON LUXE

Located within the newly completed Cecil Baker-Astoban Investments-collaborated condominium, this 3,200-square-foot listing is washed in natural sunlight thanks to large windows overlooking the treetops of Rittenhouse and Fitler Square neighborhoods. Ten-foot-high ceilings, LED lighting and exposed concrete columns and walls add to the overall modern aesthetic of the three- bed, 3 1⁄2-bath space. “The space finishes and details work in harmony to create modern luxury living for the homebuyer,” says listing agent Brett Caspi. The kitchen is perhaps the pièce de résistance of the condo due to its custom Scavolini design featuring marbled quartz countertops juxtaposed with black cabinetry. Other details include Duravit, Dornbracht and Grohe fixtures, along with Wolf and Sub- Zero appliances. There’s also a built-in wine refrigerator and coffee system.

PRICE AND CONTACT

For $3.9 million, homeowners can relax in the expansive master bedroom that includes a his-and-hers Pianca closet system and an en-suite bathroom with a steam shower and heated flooring. Plus—on-site indoor parking. Brett Caspi, 516.633.6106, astobanrealty.com

HOT AREAS

“2110 Walnut Street is positioned between Rittenhouse Square and Fitler Square. It is close to many of Philadelphia’s finest restaurants, cafes, boutiques and parks,” says Caspi, adding that the home is truly one of a kind.

LOWDOWN ON LUXE

Drive up a winding driveway to find a stately brick, Georgian-style home. The six-bed and 11-bath home sits on 8.4 acres on the Main Line, and has been completely renovated since it was built in 1960. “It’s the definition of ‘stately,’” says the current owner. “Being a builder, I was impressed with the concrete and steel construction. It’s a quality you can’t affordably replicate in this day and age.” Think elaborate moldings and millwork, parquet flooring, fireplaces and a kitchen decked out in cherry cabinetry, a granite island and stainless steel appliances. Outdoors, an English garden awaits, along with a wraparound Palladian-arched loggia ideally suited for entertaining. In the warmer months, take a dip in the stepped-down pool area, which is complete with a pool house. The home’s main suite features its own fireplace and sitting area and walk-in closets—plus, a bathroom clad in light gray marble, complemented by a giant soaking tub, glass- stall shower and hammered brass sinks.

PRICE AND CONTACT

Curl up with a book under the gazebo or break a sweat on your own personal tennis court for $4.9 million. For indoor activities, keep on track with a personal gym and sauna, enjoy a night in at the bar and wine cellar, or entertain in the game area. Karen Barone, 732.533.3211, and Carol Ogelsby, 610.213.2000, kurfiss.com

HOT AREAS

Located in the heart of the Main Line, homeowners have minutes-away access to places like the Merion Cricket Club, Haverford College and an abundance of green spaces.
