  • Description

    A Victorian-era mid-rise where every unit is unique.

    Originally built in 1902 to house publishing company J.B. Lippincott — at the time one of the world’s largest and most notable publishers — this boutique (26 units) condominium building was converted in 2004. Designed by architect William Cresson Pritchett, the building still showcases fantastic architectural details, but don’t let its exterior accoutrement fool you: Inside, many of the residences could not be more contemporary.

    The Lippincott’s units are all highly customized, so no two are alike. Many have exposed brick, exposed beams and a loft-like feel with ultra-modern kitchens and baths, while others have more traditional millwork and moldings for a more formal living environment. Some have direct elevator-access opening right into the unit, a bonus for residents who value their privacy. Most have wood floors. A few have fireplaces; some have rooftop terrace space. What they all share great natural light thanks to the bounty of windows.

    While the number of units in The Lippincott is on the smaller side, the building does offer a doorman, fitness center, on-site storage, concierge services and garage-parking, albeit for a rather steep price heading toward $100,000.

    The Washington Square neighborhood is always a good choice for the buyer who feels Rittenhouse Square is too busy. For dog owners, The Lippincott is pet friendly and the park is ready and waiting for walks with four-legged friends.
