Welcome to 2222 Delancey Place – A designer restoration of a classic Delancey townhouse in Fitler Square. Enter through a grand foyer into a spacious living room/ dining room with high ceilings, original heart pine floors, built-ins and a wood burning fireplace with original marble mantle. Just beyond the living area is the kitchen – a dream for your inner Barefoot Contessa. The Italian single-slab Calcutta marble island is a standout – with custom cabinetry & wine racks built-in, plus prep sink. The appliance package is of the highest-end – Sub-Zero refrigerator, 48’’ Viking Commercial range with stove-top faucet and Bosch dishwasher. Surrounding the island are bays of custom cabinetry with quartz counter-tops and a wood-burning fireplace with original marble mantle. Tucked in the back of the kitchen is a custom banquette for eat-in dining – all overlooking the lush garden. Also on this level is a beautiful powder room with Spanish tile flooring. The 2nd level features the master bedroom & bathroom suite. The master bedroom is located in the front of the house overlooking Delancey with a custom lounge bench and duel-sided closets for additional storage. The hallmark of the master suite is the oversized master dressing room – custom outfitted by California Closets with island, built-in vanity, designer carpeting and chandelier. The master bathroom features hand-cut marble tiles on the floor and walls, seamless glass shower, 72’’ claw foot tub, duel vanity, and radiant heating. Also on the 2nd level is a handsome den with beautiful built-ins, wood-burning fireplace plus a bay of windows. The 3rd level features 3 spacious bedrooms plus 2 gorgeous bathrooms. The lower level of this property is stunning. The back is a wonderful family room with custom wet bar with mini fridge and extended length French doors that lead out to the garden terrace for easy indoor/outdoor entertaining. The lower level also features a bonus room – used as you need (playroom, gym, office) with a murphy bed for use as a guestroom, plus a stunning guest bathroom with glass enclosed stall shower, Spanish tile surround, and single vanity. Also on this level is a laundry room with stacked Electrolux washer & dryer, sink and custom cabinetry & dry racks, plus a lighted wine-closet with lockable see-through window. The garden terrace is not to be missed – lush greenery, including a Japanese maple, make this a serene oasis from city life. This house was upgraded with the modern owner in mind using the “Rolls Royce” of home connectivity devices including multi-zoned HVAC with Nest thermostats, hard-wired & remote Nest smoke & co2 detectors, single wifi zone, data network center, cable connection to every room, wireless digital security, Ring video enabled front, rear & kitchen for extra security plus August remote access lock for front door. Additional upgrades include all new windows, plumbing, electric & LED lighting throughout.
Named for Edwin Henry Fitler, the late 19th century mayor of Philadelphia, Fitler Square is steps from the energy of Center City yet has an ambiance all its own—low-rise, quiet, exceedingly livable, and breathtakingly beautiful.View Full Details
