There are possibly two mid-century gems designed by Philadelphia architect Adolph (aka Adolf) DeRoy Mark remaining in Society Hill, and the 1973 built 307 Delancey Street is a classic example of his quirky, irreverent, style with its rustic brick design and tiered setbacks. The bricked archways in the entry showcase a free-standing chimney rising through the exterior of the home. Homes designed by DeRoy Mark are recognized instantly both from the outside and the inside and they appeal to the eye of someone who is not looking for a traditional home. 307 Delancey is anything but traditional. In addition to the main house, there are steps leading to a garden and a lower level one bedroom one bathroom apartment with its own washer dryer. This was rented (vacant at present) most recently for$1,925 per month offering an ideal way of using rental income to offset the payment on your main residence. This completely separate rental can also be incorporated into the rest of home for someone looking for larger space. The main house has two fireplaces and features a light filled dining room with overhead windows, leading into a kitchen with a window, a granite island and countertops, and wooden cabinets. There is a full bathroom on this level. Continue walking back to the steps of a two storied den (could be an additional bedroom) with a corner fireplace. The second level of this home features a beautiful sun filled living room with a fireplace, a dramatic atrium ceiling open to the bedroom and catwalk of the upper leveled bedroom. There is an additional den (could also be a small bedroom) and full bathroom on this level as well. On the third floor below a large window sits the bedroom and the walkway leading to an enclosed sunroom. This special home offers the warmth of the featured wood and brick and fantastic light and windows throughout. Presently used as a one bedroom home by one person, this home could be modified by buyers looking for additional bedroom areas. This block of Delancey , with Belgium block, is one of the most sought after blocks in all of Center City Philadelphia with Three Bears Park, a small pocket park situated one residence away. The one way traffic on this block of Delancey makes it one of the quietest blocks in the city. The supermarket is about two blocks from here and although parking is relatively easy on this block, there is a public garage located on the corner of 2nd and Lombard Streets. Enjoy the hugely popular Sunday Farmer's Market nearby at Head House Square and other neighborhood haunts.
