234 S 21st St, located in the heart of Rittenhouse and not far from Fitler Square and Schuylkill River Park, offers the perfect blend of elegance and comfort. This classic Philadelphia home, near Chancellor St, is situated on an exceptional lot. At almost 125' deep, it has one of the largest backyards in Center City. 224 S 21st Street is also included in the sale, which offers multi-car PARKING. This 3-story, 5 bedroom, 5 1/2 bathroom home is approximately 3,500 square feet of well laid out living space - spacious, but not too much to maintain. Note the solid wood double doors and ornately tiled vestibule as you enter into the grand center hall adorned with a gold beveled, antique wall mirror and chandelier, original random width pine floors, and soaring ceilings. Just off the main hallway through an arched entryway featuring solid wood pocket doors, you will find a stately living room with tasteful pin-striped wallpaper, crown molding, wainscoting, and fireplace with decorative mantel. Adjacent to the living room and through the large French doors, there is a spectacular dining room with authentic millwork, moldings, and a brick fireplace. Beyond the dining room towards the back of the home, a convenient powder room on the way to the large open kitchen with views of the serene backyard. The updated kitchen features ample granite counters, shaker style cabinetry, stainless appliances, pantry closet, a large dining area, and sliding doors that lead to a welcoming deck large enough for dining & barbequing with friends and family. The backyard is your own personal arboretum. Lush, enormous, and private. Up the classic staircase to the second floor, you will find the peaceful and large primary bedroom complete with decorative wood beamed ceilings, original detail & character with bay windows, and fireplace with marble and wood surround. Just off the main bedroom, enter the first of two full bathrooms on this level. On the way to the large family room, you will find an office which could also be used as a nursery or bedroom and a gorgeous new full bathroom with marble stall shower with bench and multiple shower heads. The large family room is perfect for entertaining and offers high ceilings, a custom entertainment center/bookshelves + ceiling fan and large windows with deep sills and views of Frank Furness and iconic Center City buildings. The third floor offers three large bedrooms, one en-suite, skylights for ample light, and an open flexible space perfect for another home office or at home schooling/hangout area. There is also a large full basement with bonus exercise or play room and plenty of storage. 234 S 21st St is ideal for working and schooling from home with many private spaces (indoor and outdoor) and also easy gathering spots for everyday and holidays. It feels like just the right sized forever home that's so hard to find in Rittenhouse. Located within the Greenfield School Catchment and just steps away from everything Rittenhouse Square and Center City has to offer. Schedule your showing today!
