Area Guides for Philadelphia and the Surrounding Counties in Pennsylvania & New Jersey

Center City Philadelphia realtors descended on the newly staged penthouse at The Ayer building on May 20 with listing agent Melanie Stecura hosting the event at the 4500-square-foot triplex.

Designer Gretchen Kubiak of Black & Poole just completed staging the Ayer penthouse.

Owners Chase & Jen Utley have moved to a new home, taking their furnishings with them, so interior design firm Black & Poole was engaged to restage the space, all of it already customized by an architect for the Utleys when they purchased the residence several years ago. Now, fresh artwork, furnishings and decorative objects add splashes of visual interest throughout its three levels.

NouVeau Catering by Joseph Grande provided hot and cold hors d’oeuvres for guests.

Listed for $4,300,000, the penthouse has direct city views, two terraces, an elevator, two valet parking spaces and an interior that sings with light, tall windows and high ceilings. More formal than an open-plan loft, the residence has expansive rooms that are defined, allowing for a formal dining room, for example, a rarity in many city apartments. This home has four bedrooms, four full baths, including a main suite spa-like bath, and a powder room, plus an office. And in a true coup for a city home, it also has a giant media room with a custom wet bar, a great feature for the urban dweller who likes to host a crowd.
