Notably one of the finest homes ever built in Center City, prominently located in the premier historic Society Hill location, across from Carpenters Hall and footsteps from Independence Hall, the birthplace of America. This dramatic masterpiece was built approx. 16 years ago with high quality top of the line details and finishes. An incredible garden sprawls across the property, complete with a koi pond and mature shrubbery/trees, while a covered walkway allows for easy access from the home to the immaculate 5-car garage. Double mahogany doors are just the beginning of this sophisticated home.

This first floor is highlighted by a professional office with wet bar and door into a temperature controlled mahogany wine cellar. Prepare to swoon as you arrive on the 2nd floor with immense spaciousness, dramatic 12ft ceiling heights and breathtaking floor to ceiling windows sprawled across 3 exposures. The living area features an ebony wood entertainment center and gas fireplace, while the dining area is highlighted by 4 floor to ceiling windows and brilliant chandelier. A sunroom overlooks the garden, creating the ambiance of living within a green oasis.

Relax like a king in the master bedroom suite that surpasses any of your wildest dreams, highlighted by its dome ceiling and balcony.
