Magnificent full floor unit at the highly coveted Saunders Building with astonishing views of Washington Square Park. This 3 BR/3BA residence has been dramatically and lovingly renovated and updated by its current owners over the past four years. Two elevators open directly to your private lobby with stunning honed Calacatta and Nero Marquina marble floors in a harlequin pattern. French doors lead to a breathtaking entry with immediate and direct views of the park. This home boasts 19 eight foot windows, and has unparalleled direct park views from the Kitchen, Dining Room, Living Room, Master Bedroom, and Master Bathroom. Off the entry to the right is the kitchen with black cabinetry, honed Calacatta backsplash and counters, and an enormous island with Grohe faucet. The kitchen is equipped with a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Capital dual-fuel range, Vent-a-Hood, and Miele dishwasher. The current owners removed all dividing walls on this side of the unit opening the space completely for unobstructed views. Original brick and concrete walls and ceilings line the perimeter of the space, from the building's previous life as a preeminent publishing house. Three enormous Restoration Hardware pendant lights add drama to the space and are a nod to building's history. White oak floors (with walnut borders) add a beautiful fifth wall. A large gallery area leads to the full size laundry room with commercial grade Speed Queen washer and dryer. The Master Bedroom is located down a hallway, two spacious walk-in closets each with new custom closet organizers flank the hallway preceding the bedroom. The Master has exposed brick and concrete ceilings and has been painted a dramatic black. New wool carpeting is under foot and an enormous black crystal Restoration Hardware chandelier overhead. Two eight foot windows provide amazing and direct views of Washington Square Park treetops from bed. The gigantic marble Master Bath has an additional two eight foot windows with direct views of the park. Besides the Master, the unit boasts two other bright and generously sized bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and custom black closet organizers. Each bedroom has extremely high ceilings, new wool carpeting and Restoration Hardware Sputnik Chandeliers. The first en suite bathroom is clad in white subway tile and has a new Restoration Hardware vanity and marble top. The middle bathroom is marble with a glass shower and pedestal sink. Two new hot water heaters were installed in 2016 to ensure that there is never a shortage of hot water! Unit includes two storage spaces and one deeded parking space in the secure gated lot adjacent to the building. The location is superb and the drama of this space is truly unmatched. There is nothing comparable to this in all of Philadelphia and the privacy of a full floor unit is almost unheard of. You do not want to miss this one!
