• Description

    After someone moves to Rittenhouse Square, long Philadelphia’s most exclusive neighborhood, it seems the Square has a way of becoming the center of their universe, the sun around which everything else revolves. OK, perhaps that’s an overstatement, but talk to long-time residents and they are quite clear that this is the only place they would consider buying a luxury condo in Center City Philadelphia.

    Rittenhouse Square is one of William Penn’s original squares in his city plan. The park itself is known for several features, including its graceful fountain, goat statue in the southwest corner, mature trees, beautifully planted flower beds and benches made for people- and dog-watching – it’s a regular dog parade throughout the day in and around the park. It’s also stroller-central as nannies and parents bring children to the park for playtime – there likely isn’t a child who grew up on near the Square who didn’t have a picture taken on that goat statue.

    Surrounding the park are high-rise luxury condominiums containing the city’s most expensive homes in the sky. The original townhouses that ringed the park are long gone except for perhaps one or two on the north side next to 10 Rittenhouse. Some of these condo buildings have restaurants at street level (Rouge, Parc, Devon), and in warm weather offer al fresco dining. Many of our clients buy a condo in the Rittenhouse area just to be part of this alfresc scene.Â

    The “sounds” of the neighborhood are melodic at times. Church bells ring each day. Adjacent to the Square is the Curtis Institute of Music, a world-renowned school for gifted students who need not pay any tuition if they are accepted. Walk by in the summer months and hear the music pour from open windows in their practice rooms.

    Beyond the immediate confines of the Square are streets filled with historical townhouses, some mansion-sized and meticulously renovated, that are some of the most desirable residential blocks in the city. Delancey Place, Spruce Street, Rittenhouse, Pine, Locust and tiny cobblestone half streets between 16th and 22nd Streets are very special, indeed. Many of these historical properties are single-family homes with hidden gardens and roof decks offering spectacular city views. Some are divided into multi-unit condominiums.

    Many people choose to live in and around the Square for convenience. This a neighborhood that’s close enough to require a brisk walk to the office buildings along Market Street with no cab, bus or subway required. After working hours, restaurants, cultural activities and shopping are also nearby.

    The Rittenhouse Square neighborhood contains some of the city’s finest shopping along Walnut Street and the surrounding blocks between Broad and 22nd Streets. Whether it’s clothing, shoes, jewelry, handbags, special gifts or spa treatments, there are high-end shops and boutiques spread throughout the Rittenhouse Square area.
