1600 ARCH STREET Unit: 1917, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19103
The Phoenix. Absolutely stunning top floor luxury penthouse with some of the most amazing views in the city await you. Built in 1925 in the Georgian Revival style, The Phoenix is one of Philadelphia's most beautiful National Historic Landmark buildings. This unit was completely renovated by the current owner who combined two units into one 2600 square foot residence. No detail was spared in this high-end renovation. Enter a gracious double door foyer with original carerra marble floors and a large coat room with storage. The kitchen features a double-sided glass door Sub-Zero refrigerator, a multi-zoned 150 bottle Viking wine cellar, Viking beverage chiller, Wolf stove with glass cook-top and hood, and a walk-in pantry for food and appliance storage and food prep! Truly amazing kitchen space! From the kitchen is a large open living room / dining room with a television viewing area with surround sound, library shelving with rolling ladder, and a frame-less electric fireplace. There are three sets of full height French doors off of the living space which open onto the terrace. The terrace is one of the largest in the city, offering 1000 square feet of panoramic city views including a spectacular view of Philadelphia City Hall and the recently renovated Love Park! Terrace is complete with water for plantings and a gas grill which is piped directly and usable year round. During the renovation, the former one bedroom unit was converted into a large private oasis primary suite. The primary suite features a sitting area with television, a spacious office space with custom marble counters and columns and built-in lit glass display shelving. There is a wet-bar with a built in Miele coffee station, and the office even comes with its own Fort Knox safe. The primary bath has double under-mount washstand sinks with onyx counter-tops that are lit from beneath , separate shower stall with rain shower and body jets, a large Amalfi Victoria and Albert slipper tub, and two large glass door closets, one of which is fitted out with a heated towel warmer. The master bedroom was built to take advantage of the downtown views and there is a large walk-in closet with amazing views up towards the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and a television which is built into the window well and rises up for viewing. The penthouse has all solid wood floors and solid wood doors throughout. Custom marble flooring in the kitchen was designed to match the original marble floors in the foyer and in the public space. There are custom Lutron shades and lighting throughout in addition to surround sound. There are two other spacious bedrooms, one with attached full bath with double vanity. The unit comes with two car valet parking with the newly in place "VIP Parker" system, which allows for direct call for your vehicle, and a message when it is ready at the valet station. Also included is a combined four unit storage space in the climate controlled storage area on the the 4th floor. The Phoenix has never had a special assessment. Amenities include 24 doorman, game room, weight room and fitness center, dining space, catering kitchen and a business center. Direct access to Suburban Station, many restaurants and coffee houses, direct underground walk to the new Comcast Center, Vernick Fish and the brand new Four Seasons Spa and Hotel! This is an absolute must see!
