$1,530,000 315 SPRUCE STREET, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19106
Offering more than 4,000 square feet of living space across two separate houses — plus a deeded parking place, a lovely garden and a private elevator — this historic Society Hill showplace is one of the most outstanding properties available in Philadelphia today. Built in 1815, this property combines classic historic detail with contemporary finishes, making this a unique, move-in ready opportunity for those seeking a spacious compound, multigenerational accommodations or additional rental income. The five-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom primary residence greets you with lovely hardwood floors, soaring 12-foot-tall ceilings and stately millwork. On the main level, entertain in the dining area or relax in the adjacent sitting room featuring an open view and pass-through window to the lower-level kitchen. Chefs will love the cherry glass-front cabinetry, soapstone counters and upscale stainless-steel appliances, including a Sub-Zero refrigerator and two Dacor ovens. Ascend the staircase to enjoy a spacious living room where expansive windows usher in stunning sunlight. Upstairs, the full-floor owner's suite dazzles with a cozy sitting area, built-in cabinetry, a large bedroom with two closets and an en suite bathroom featuring classic marble and subway tile. Two more bedrooms share a bathroom on the third floor, that last stop on the elevator. The fourth floor includes two more bedrooms, with new HVAC wall units, that share a brand-new bathroom. In the equally charming three-story rear house, you will find two spacious bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a large living room and a galley kitchen. Tall ceilings and hardwood floors run throughout, and the basement area includes a washer-dryer. A separate entrance and private patio through a secure gate makes this abode ideal for rental use. Relax in the fabulous outdoor space and enjoy the rarest of city conveniences: a deeded parking space on 3rd Street included in the annual $1400 HOA fee. Positioned in the heart of coveted Society Hill, this home is just inches from glorious outdoor space, including Three Bears Park, Washington Square, Independence National Historical Park and the waterfront. Fantastic dining, nightlife, shopping and top-rated schools line the nearby streets. With excellent walk, bike and transit scores, this historic neighborhood is as convenient as it is lovely: multiple bus lines and the 2nd Street SEPTA station put the rest of the city within easy reach.
