About 233 South 6th Street, Unit PH2502

There are few penthouses in Philadelphia so perfectly positioned as this 3,500-square-foot residence at the top of Independence Place in Society Hill. With direct views of the entire Center City skyline and the Ben Franklin Bridge and river, it’s absolutely magical day and night. The apartment showcases custom finishes and details, including rectified porcelain tile floors, substantial arched millwork and doors, rounded plasterwork, extensive recessed and cove lighting and vintage Art Deco metalwork in the reception area and at the living room fireplace. With so many windows and its extensive wraparound terrace, the natural light is fantastic. The formal reception foyer, with its cove-lit “rotunda” and custom tile inlay, provides an elegant welcome to guests. Beyond the foyer, this residence gets even more incredible with a wealth of features designed for entertaining in style. From its “great room” and wraparound, dog-friendly terrace with spectacular views and smartly designed space that accommodates a sitting area with wood burning fireplace, a full-size bar, den/TV area with mahogany built-ins, to its formal dining room that can seat 20 (and store every set of dishes, stemware and other items in its built-ins), to its kitchen with pro-grade appliances and many linear feet of carefully planned cabinetry and countertops, this is a home that makes it easy to welcome guests for everything from a special holiday dinner to an Eagles game on a Sunday afternoon. A butler’s pantry/laundry room, walk-in closets off the foyer and den and other spaces throughout the apartment provide more storage than in many suburban homes. The floor plan is designed to keep the guest spaces separate from the private quarters. The main bedroom suite is enormous with a wood-burning fireplace and built-ins of bird’s eye maple. There are his and hers bathrooms and walk-in closets, including a closet that also serves as a skylit dressing room. Throughout the main suite, a neutral color palette feels restful and calm. A home office is where you can enjoy bridge and river views. A bonus room includes a Murphy bed, perfect for guests. As a home in the sky, this penthouse is a sophisticated option ready for entertaining or to be your private retreat. Independence Place is a doorman building with an onsite parking garage. On sedate Washington Square, the building is convenient to restaurants and shops as well as the galleries and boutiques of Old City, arts venues along Broad Street and all the city has to offer.
