238 Philip Place

$1,385,000  |  238 Philip Place, Philadelphia, PA 19106

An exquisite iteration of the I.M. Pei-designed townhomes at the foot of the Society Hill Towers, 238 Philip Place is a light-filled quiet oasis in the heart of the neighborhood. Behind the Flemish bond brick facade and arched front door lies an impeccable property, thoughtfully modernized throughout and yet maintaining the architectural details that have made these homes perennial favorites for nearly half a century; most notably the open, wide staircase that runs the full four stories and is topped by a skylight. Gleaming hardwood floors throughout, soaring ceilings, and splendid finishes: Carrara marble, stainless steel, glass tile, Neff cabinetry, leaded glass. An attentive repurposing of the once-crowded third floor allows for two large bedroom suites, each with a private attached bath and glorious closet space. A third bedroom suite is found on the lower level, adjacent to the game room. The delightful walled back patio garden, clad in bluestone and surrounded by mature landscaping, opens to a dedicated parking spot in the gated courtyard circling the second casting of Gaston LaChaise’s “Floating Figure”; a unique suburban cul-de-sac in the heart of the city. Primely situated fronting the manicured west lawn of the Society Hill Towers, this is a blue-chip offering and not to be missed.
