Presenting 28 N 3rd, one of the finest properties in Old City offering the most discerning a glorious melding of old and new, formal and casual, practical and luxurious. Built in 1857 by architect, Stephen D. Button, this grand marble Italianate was designed for prominent garment merchant, Henry Korn. Added to the Phila Register of Historic Places in 1984, this five-story boutique condo conversion boasts segmental arched window openings, marble Corinthian pilasters, window hoods with delicate carved keystones, bracketed cornices and a marble step to the recessed entrance. The rarely offered penthouse unit showcases a seamless blend of modern luxury and historic charm. Enter the unit and find a long, dramatic hallway begging for a magnificent fine art collection. The hall leads to a grand living room boasting 11.5' ceilings and masterfully refinished hardwood floors. The living space is bathed in sunlight from floor-to-ceiling windows and offers unrivaled sweeping south, west and north views of the city. Custom skylights and built-in modern shelving on a translucent wall allows natural light to dance from the living room to the Master bedroom. The magnificent commercial-grade kitchen is a chef's dream, featuring a Wolf range, Asko dishwasher and Sub-Zero refrigerator. Sage glass subway tile backsplash, top-of-the-line bright white cabinetry and a large granite island are perfect finishing touches. The Master bedroom is open and bright and includes skylights, custom California Closets and a spa-like en-suite bath with Carrera marble floors, a Toto toilet, Duravit sink and Hans Grohe faucets. Two additional bedrooms and a luxurious hall bath round out the unit. The tax abatement remains until 2020 and there is additional storage in the basement. Possibly the best part? This unit offers roof rights which will allow for a roof deck to rival any in the city. Situated in the heart of the neighborhood on bustling 3rd Street, this unit is perfect for the individual who loves the pulse of the city and the quiet of their own private residence. The neighborhood affords easy access to Penn's Landing, some of the best restaurants and local pubs and the most innovative art and fashion hosted by the region's most exciting independently owned shops. Achieve an ideal balance between privacy and the vibrancy of city living in one of the finest examples of 19th century architecture in Philadelphia. *1 year pre-paid parking included.
