A new wave of urban design has taken Philly by storm. You have seen these four story townhomes, contemporary condominium buildings and revitalized loft space throughout Northern liberties and sections of Old City east of Third Street. Well these modern marvels of architecture have also been found near Logan Circle and the Art Museum area as well. Our million dollar listing for this month happens to be a four story townhome just a stones through from the Schuylkill River. In fact, you can throw that stone from your private rooftop terrace.
The architect of Mode 7 is Shimi Zakain and his team at Atrium Design Group. They have designed over 25 of these urban projects and counting. His partner Nurit Nachum is responsible for designing the interior of this beautiful townhome. Her vision can be seen in the selection of materials throughout the home.
Let’s start our tour with a visit to the spa? In this case, the master bath.
The walls and floors are finely crafted by the project builder, Masada Custom Builders and use a healthy dose of Jerusalem Gray Marble. Both Shimi and Nurit received their formal training in Ariel, Isreal and you will see a touch of the old world in many of their interiors. The vanity is custom built using Eucalyptus and Applewood millwork. Kohler and Durvit hardware and fixtures are selected to complete the Mediterranean look.
A trendy urban design to the kitchen brings out the modern chef in all who venture into the handsome space. Polished Aqua Sol granite countertops make up the center island. Designed to be the social gathering space in this 5500 square foot home. The view from here is towards University City which has gone through it’s own revitalization in recent years and the skyline is beautiful.
No expense was spared when they selected the appliances for the kitchen. A Sub Zero stainless steel refrigeration will keep things cold when they need to be cold and a Wolf six burner range and oven combo will keep things hot when they need to be hot. Floor to ceiling windows are found in every bedroom and there are five of those. You will find 4 full bathrooms and two ½ baths throughout the property.
The location is perfect for the cultural enthusiast. Within walking distance is the Philadelphia Art Museum, the Barnes Museum, the Franklin Institute and the Rodin along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Close enough to be part of the action when there is a concert along the parkway and conveniently tucked away on your own semi private courtyard.
To top it all off, you have your own stairway to heaven.
The rooftop terrace is private and very large. At 750 square feet, you can entertain friends and family under moonlit skis. The living room has its own private patio where you can dine alfresco.
All this can be yours for a mere $ 2.2 million dollars and the sound of the city off in the distance are included. If you wish to take a peek for yourself, contact our Philadelphia real estate office a call to schedule an appointment.
