221 Pine Street, Philadelphia

Fully furnished renovated duplex has balconies and roof terrace

Take advantage of this rare opportunity to own a fully renovated home in Philadelphia’s desirable Society Hill. Built in 1746, the home is located in an area with an unparalleled historic legacy and is walking distance to the city’s vibrant arts scene, boutique shops, restaurants and night life.

Located at 221 Pine Street in Philadelphia, the home is listed by Holly Smith and Art Herling of Long & Foster’s Wayne Devon, Pennsylvania office and is being offered fully furnished for $1,599,999. Elegantly renovated and meticulously maintained, the 2,400-square-foot home has five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, several balconies and a roof terrace.

“The current owner worked with the Philadelphia Historic Commission and the Society Hill Civic Association over a 10-year period to resurrect this home, which is now one of the most prestigious properties in Society Hill,” said Smith. “It was gutted down to the studs, but the owner was careful to preserve its unique staircase, brick walls and other historic features as much as possible – and it is outstanding.”

No expense was spared on its complete renovation including plumbing, electrical, heating/cooling, and entertainment systems. The roof was removed to raise the ceiling and a new roof was installed. All staircases were refurbished with oak banisters, steel spiral decorations, marble staircase backings and re-varnished treads. All new historic approved windows have been installed on the back of the main building and front windows have been refurbished to historic standards.

This home is the perfect blend of old-world charm and modern luxuries. A rare find in this prime location, the home features two separate and private units – ideal for you and a tenant, or your out-of-town guests.

The first unit features a kitchen, living area, two bedrooms, two beautifully updated bathrooms, decorative lighting and access to the backyard to enjoy morning coffee. The entrance to the other unit is on the second floor. There, you’ll find a living room with fireplace and a chandelier, a kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, marble bathrooms and a third-floor private deck with stunning views of the Ben Franklin Bridge, Head House Square and your yard below. The fourth-floor features 10-foot ceilings and plenty of room to entertain.  In warm weather, you’ll enjoy spending time with friends and family on the roof top deck with its commanding views.
