Step into a piece of Philadelphia architectural history at 2139 Locust Street. This grand townhome sits 20 ft in width and was designed by famed Philadelphia architect Charles Burton Keen in 1905 and retains much of its original grandeur uncompromised by the modern upgrades throughout. Spanning over 5200 SF across 4 levels, this home includes 5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, and 1 powder room creating a very flexible floorplan and comfortable rooms. Enter through a large vestibule and into the parlor where you'll first get a glimpse of the striking original staircase of the home. The kitchen is just past the parlor and was thoughtfully designed for cooking and entertaining. Featuring custom cabinetry plus a pantry, built-in refrigerator & freezer, stainless gas range, 2nd oven, 2 sinks, and beautiful stone counters with a drainboard. The kitchen is open to the spacious living room which is anchored by a stately wood-burning fireplace. The formal dining room is in the front of the home and features another of the home's 3 original fireplaces. Also on this level is a conveniently located powder room. The second level begins with a handsome library with oversized south-facing windows, built-in bookshelves, and a fireplace. The Primary suite is also on the 2nd level with a large bedroom, custom-outfitted dressing room, and en-suite bathroom with 2 marble vanities plus a walk-in shower with seamless glass enclosure. The laundry room completes the 2nd floor. The 3rd floor features 3 bedrooms and a roomy hall bathroom with classic finishes and includes a pedestal sink and shower with glass sliders. The 4th level of this home continues with 3 additional bedrooms (one currently used as a home gym), a hall bathroom with marble tile, large vanity and clawfoot tub, plus a kitchenette. This home also has a large basement with multiple rooms and high ceilings with an incredible opportunity to be refinished into a bonus room while still allowing ample space for storage. This Rittenhouse /Fitler location is just blocks from both Rittenhouse Sq Park, Fitler Sq Park, and the Schuylkill River Park and is surrounded by some of the best restaurants, cafes, and retail in the city. Easy commute to Penn, CHOP, Drexel, and 30th Street Station. Located in Greenfield School Catchment!
