Featured in the April 2013 WSJ article “The House With a Surprise Inside” and Philly Style Magazine, 1901 Delancey Place is a masterpiece of natural light and design. This spectacular completely renovated and very rare 42 foot wide mansion in Rittenhouse Square exudes the ultimate in sophistication and luxury. Extensive light, soaring 12-16 foot ceilings, lavish entertaining space, exquisite Italian glass doors and state-of-the-art systems make it an unrivaled modern-day trophy home. Circa 1900, this five floor masterpiece offering 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths and 3 powder rooms has been gutted and tastefully redone by the current owner, who has spared no expense on an exquisitely-detailed renovation. With its 5 magnificent stories, approximately 8800 square feet of living space and a 400+/- square foot roof deck, this expansive residence epitomizes distinctive beauty and character. The elegant ambiance is graced by huge windows, a generous flow of light from all four sides – an unrivaled feature in center city, a fireplace, an elevator, gorgeous oak flooring throughout, and high-tech control of everything from heating to sound and to security. The lower level is a recreation lover’s dream with a media room, catering kitchen and guest apartment with separate entrance. This showplace home right off Rittenhouse Square is located in the heart of world-class museums, upscale shopping and critically-acclaimed restaurants. Truly a once- in-a-lifetime residential opportunity in Philadelphia!
