Welcome to 340 South Smedley Street in the heart of Rittenhouse Square! This 3 BR/2.5 BA townhouse is located on one of the most historic and charming blocks in Philadelphia – where neighbors are friends and everyone stops to take pictures! This home offers the perfect blend of historic character with sophisticated, modern touches. As you enter, you’re welcomed into a charming vestibule with wainscoting and classic black & white checkerboard flooring. The main level features an open-concept living area, perfect for entertaining, which seamlessly flows into the dining room with a hand-crafted brass chandelier, followed by a thoughtfully designed kitchen. The kitchen features a custom paneled island with seating, high-end built-in refrigerator and Wolf range, quartz countertops, all drawer base cabinets, and a place for everything in a generously-sized pantry cabinet system. There’s even a built-in walnut hutch to hold your glassware while concealing a radiator below. The cozy brick patio is right off of the kitchen where you can dine al fresco under string lights along with space for a grill and garden. A conveniently located powder room completes the first floor. Head upstairs to the second floor and enter into the light-filled den with gorgeous built-ins as well as a wood-burning fireplace featuring a soapstone hearth. In the back of the second floor is the quiet primary suite with both a walk-in closet and a wall of built-in closets, along with an en-suite bathroom. On the third floor you will find two nicely sized bedrooms and a recently updated hall bathroom. There is also a finished basement, which offers a newer washer/dryer unit, a built-in desk and bench for an office area, and plenty of additional storage. Several other highlights that make this home a true standout include the artisan light fixtures, wide plank white oak hardwood flooring, custom window treatments, and tasteful design elements throughout. The HVAC, furnace, water heater, sewer line and other mechanical items have been updated in the last few years. This amazing home is down the street from Rittenhouse Square and steps away from restaurants, shopping and the theatre district!
