The perfect balance of old & new, this historical Society Hill townhouse combines the best of family living with gracious entertaining. Built in 1771 by and for Thomas Nevel, the master carpenter commissioned to build Independence Hall & Carpenters Hall, this property maintains much of its original character through thoughtful restoration. The elegant entertaining begins upon entrance to the house with a 35 ft deep living area featuring 2 wood burning fireplaces, high ceilings, original wide plank pine floors, and exquisite woodwork flanked by 2 sets of double doors. The gourmet kitchen, designed by Ahn & Robinson, is as stylish as it is functional, featuring custom wood cabinetry, hammered black granite counter tops, limestone tile flooring, built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator, 5 burner commercial stove top, Electrolux double wall oven, and built-in Viking wine cooler. The kitchen is complete with a built-in banquette and a family lounge and overlooks the private courtyard with fire-pit. There is also a conveniently located powder room located on this level. The master bedroom suite on the 2nd level was brilliantly renovated by the principal designer at Ahn-Robinson Studios to create a spa-like urban oasis. Features include 2 custom walk-in closets, a solid Ipe vanity with vessel sink, and a glass enclosed wet room with an oversized soaking tub & tiled shower. The second floor also houses a spacious & light filled family room with a wood burning fireplace, and a guest bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The 3rd floor has two additional bedrooms, a 3 piece glass tiled bathroom, and access to a serene roof deck. Additionally, this property includes a full sized passenger elevator, a full basement with a playroom, 3 storage rooms and laundry room, and has 4 HVAC zones. 338 S. 4th Street is in the heart of Society Hill across from Three Bears Park, and immediately adjacent to Lawrence Court.
