A Look Behind The Glass Curtain
No other residential building in Philadelphia can offer the level of service and amenities available to the homeowners who chose The Residences at The Ritz Carlton as their place to live in Center City. For this edition of Million Dollar Listings, we will take a closer look at a spectacular unit known to us as “31B” and perhaps you might come to know it as “Home”. High Rise condominium living should include spectacular views. This particular residential building is the tallest in Philadelphia standing at 47 stories of cobalt blue glass. From your living room, you can use the clock on top of city hall as your own personal timepiece. To the east is Market Street’s shopping district and the Ave of the Arts. Northwest is Love Park and the beginning of the Ben Franklin Parkway. Let’s take a closer look behind the glass exterior.
Center City Living Includes Concierge Services – Ritz Carlton Style
The Ritz Carlton wrote the book on hospitality and sets a very high standard for quality concierge services at all their properties around the world. The valet and the door attendant great you with a warm “Welcome Home”. Each homeowner has full access to the Ritz Carlton Hotel dining and full service spa facilities plus a 7000 sq. foot fitness center, lounge and media room. Let’s let Mr. Wolfington describe a typical day he enjoys as a resident.
This particular unit features 3 bedrooms, 3 ½ baths and over 2075 square feet of living comfort. The unit is currently furnished and designed to be the show piece for other units. As you can see here, the master bath is adorned in marble, glass and a custom wood double vanity. The bedroom is very spacious and includes two walk in closets for him and her and offers a northern exposure for those that wake after the sun rises.
In residence dining can be accomplished any number of ways. This state of the art kitchen boasts professional equipment for you to prepare a gourmet meal.
Name brand appliances from Dornbracht, Franke, Miele and Viking stoves will enhance what talent you bring to the table. Or take advantage of the Ritz Carlton in residence catering services to help take care of the food service while you entertain your guests.
