  • Description

    High ceilings and tall windows are ever-present in this stately piece of history.

    Surrounded by classic historical streetscapes and the quiet reserve of Society Hill, this fine, circa-1870 building once was home to the offices of the Reading Railroad. Prior to that it was the site of the home of Thomas Willings, one of the wealthiest men of the Revolutionary War era. The building eventually became apartments and then was converted and updated beginning in 2006 to 23 luxury condominiums all with a range of noteworthy features. Soaring 14-foot ceilings; refinished wood floors; tall, insulated double-hung windows for great natural light and energy efficiency; and new, quality kitchens and baths are part of the living experience at The Willings.

    The lobby resembles that of a posh hotel with ornate millwork and moldings. A doorman/concierge stands ready to greet visitors, receive packages and take care of resident requests. All apartments have extra-insulated walls for quieter living spaces (and privacy from neighbors), their own in-unit HVAC with gas heat and central air, gas cooking and an audio/video intercom security system so you can see who’s outside your door. With the recent renovations to the building, all apartments now have in-unit washers/dryers, too.

    Some of the first-floor residences have outdoor space, and the building does share a courtyard with Old St. Joseph’s Church, creating lovely views for upper-level condominiums.

    Despite The Willings’ boutique size, it does offer on-site management. There are individual storage closets for each residence on the lower level that can be customized by the owner. Some units have garage parking included. The Willings is a small intimate building in the heart of Society Hill that not only stood the test of time, but has been renewed to become comfortable residences for many decades to come.

About this Area

Old City

Old City is the sort of place where you might expect Benjamin Franklin to stroll past on his way to pay a visit to Betsy Ross at her home at 239 Arch Street. After all, the neighborhood is home to Independence National Historical Park and the many buildings where our Founding Fathers hammered out and debated the principles that guided the founding of the United States of America.Many cobblestone streets still exist....
