Awaiting you on the only cul-de-sac in Society Hill is a three story light filled retreat in the heart of the city, complete with private gated 2 car parking in the adjacent parcel. The original home dates to 1835 and was lovingly rebuilt from the foundation up in 2012, with all restorations done according to Philadelphia Historical Commission guidelines. Fall in love with the classic all-original brick façade and mahogany framed windows. Entering the home on Waverly Street you will be greeted by soaring 9 ½’ ceilings and solid 3” plank maple flooring, providing a bright and airy feel. The living room features a restored custom finished fireplace, the perfect spot for a cozy evening. Whether a chef, baker, or home cook, the kitchen is sure to exceed your expectations. The kitchen features stainless steel Viking Professional refrigerator and two ovens, Broan commercial grade exhaust hood, Bosch dishwasher, 42” custom cabinetry, and Grohe fixtures with a lifetime warranty. Step outside the kitchen to your own private outdoor oasis, complete with custom stamped concrete. The restored staircase and custom railings lead you to the home’s second floor, where you will find continued maple flooring to create continuity of space. Here you will find the home’s den, featuring built-in bookcases and another restored fireplace. The den can easily be framed to create an additional bedroom, should you desire additional accommodations. This level also features an office nook just below one of the many windows, just the right area filled with natural light, to create a work from home space. Rounding out this level is a full custom bathroom, showcasing a honed Carrera marble shower, Grohe fixtures and Porcher porcelain. The top level’s skylight beckons you upward to the primary suite with custom closets to suit all of your storage needs, another spa-like bathroom, and full size laundry. The primary bathroom is finished with the same Carrera, Grohe, and Porcher detail with double sinks. Whether you are enjoying a peaceful day at home, or entertaining family and friends, you will appreciate the hard wired Sonos speaker system throughout the interior and exterior of the home, all separately controlled to create the exact mood you desire in each room. The list of upgrades in your new home continues to include custom solid mahogany exterior doors, custom solid mahogany exterior windows built with the highest level of noise and UV protection, solid hard wood interior doors throughout, on demand hot water offering unique temperature settings throughout the home, and newly surfaced roof and new neutral paint throughout (both completed in 2021). Ultra-low utility bills (water/sewer, gas and electric average just $140/month) were achieved by installing efficient eco-spray insulation throughout, dual zoned heat and central air, dimmable LED recessed lighting, and a whole home humidifier system. Pride of ownership is evident as all major systems have been meticulously maintained by the current owner, with all maintenance records available for the new owner. Additional custom closets throughout maximize the home’s space, and the dry, large crawl space offer loads of options for all of your storage needs. A custom home like this only comes by once in a lifetime, so make your appointment now.
