Despite signs of a potential softening in the real estate market, there is no shortage of luxury listings in Philadelphia. These three have amenities many people only dream about.
2004 Delancey St.
Monthly taxes: $1,940
Tell me all about it: On top of a tony Delancey Street address, this home boasts extraordinary width (26 feet) and a two-car garage — both of which are otherwise in short supply in Center City. The home also features six bedrooms, five baths, multiple family rooms and an enormous custom, eat-in kitchen. We love the bright all-season room most of all.
309 S. Third St.
Monthly taxes: $2,931
Tell me all about it: This five-bedroom Society Hill home occupies a double-width lot and boasts restored plaster moldings and a staircase out of a movie. Even more jaw-dropping is the entryway with chandelier and a mural done by White House muralist Zuber & Cie. We love the master suite with dual walk-in closets, marble bath and loads of storage. Bonus: The fourth floor includes a bar and a greenhouse.
237 S. 18th St. Unit 13BC
Monthly taxes: $3,239
Tell me all about it: This four-bedroom unit in The Barclay on Rittenhouse Square includes a custom kitchen with Sub-Zero and Viking appliances and a master suite with marble shower and whirlpool tub. The private office is accessible by separate entrance in the building or by password-protected entrance from the master bedroom wing. Beyond the fabulous amenities in the unit itself, owners will have access to Mercedes S550 car service, a private fitness center (beyond the private gym in the master bedroom), and 24-hour door staff.
