1822 Spruce Street

Philadelphia, PA 19103

There are few homes in the historical blocks surrounding Rittenhouse Square that offer so much exquisite architectural detail in such exceptional condition as does this building While its first and second floors presently are used for commercial purposes, its current owners’ gentle conversion of the space has left its floor plan and details intact while adding and updating modern comforts. They have maintained its millwork, dramatic main staircase, astounding number of stained- and leaded-glass windows and its nine fireplaces, so it can once again become a glorious single-family residence with but a few changes. A reception vestibule with a marble floor and steps and paneled in wood leads to grand-scale formal rooms, including two main parlors, a ladies’ “tea parlor” and a formal dining room that showcases expert craftsmanship. The third and fourth floors currently are beautifully designed residential space, including a chef’s stainless steel kitchen, three bedrooms and two baths.  Join this with the lower floors or leave as a separate unit. As a rare Center City bonus, the finished lower level leads out to two-car parking. 7,300+/- square feet of both unique and exquisite space.
