Before we entice you with the wonders of this beautiful residence, it’s important to note that the Lippincott Building is one of the few original buildings of distinction that lined Washington Square. At one point in time, it was the largest publishing house in the world. And Washington Square has been, and still is, one of the most coveted locations in all of Philadelphia. Now for your tour: Enter the Residences of the Lippincott through a tasteful lobby, hosted by a 24-hour concierge/door person(s). Take the elevator and arrive directly into the foyer of your private home. As you enter the residence there are a few things you will immediately take note of and they include: the gorgeous wood flooring that runs throughout, the neutral and soothing paint tones and the glorious, bright, open and airy floor plan. If you enjoy natural sunlight, you will love this property! Stroll to your right down a short hallway which opens up to a kitchen, dining room and living room combination. The kitchen boasts endless quartz countertop space (new in 2020!) including a large eat-on section with barstool seating. There are stainless steel appliances including a commercial grade Wolf oven and a Subzero refrigerator. There is a lovely tile backsplash, also new in 2020! This kitchen is designed for the most discerning of chefs! The dining room is tasteful and large and can accommodate multiple guests at your holiday get togethers. And the living room is nothing less than magnificent, in part because its original exposed brick walls give it charm and character. It is also home to your gas fireplace which sets the stage for both entertaining and relaxation. From the living room there’s a door that leads you to your full-length back porch with wonderful Eastern views including tree tops and your morning sunrises. This is the perfect place to sip your morning coffee and enjoy your evening glass of wine. Just off the living room there is a bonus room which can be used as a library, billiard room, or an expansive office. It is currently used as a music room and home to a grand piano. Like the living room, it also boasts the charm of floor to ceiling brick walls and has a separate door leading out to the porch. As you may have noticed as you walked through all the aforementioned rooms and as you continue on with your tour, every room in the house has high ceilings and tray ceilings with tasteful definitions. This Home provides you with three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. One of the bedrooms has an en-suite. The master bedroom is nothing less than grand. It is also bright and airy, has two walk-in closets (plus a wall of additional closet space) and a gorgeous master bathroom with two vanities separated by a large soaking tub and a wonderfully tiled private shower. This property continues on to a wide spiral staircase that takes you up to a foyer with multiple skylights and two sets of sliders to your expansive rooftop deck. Here you will find a degree of privacy and the perfect place to either entertain or unwind. There are many honorable mentions to this property that will be experienced when you take your tour. The residents at the Lippincott share a comfortable and well-equipped gym and this unit comes with two ample-sized indoor parking spaces and an expansive storage room. Lastly, this property’s location provides you with unlimited inner-city conveniences. Walk out the front doors of the lobby and directly into one of the most gracious city parks in Philadelphia. Just a stroll in any direction will lead you to numerous shopping venues, fantastic eateries, jogging and biking trails, dog parks, theaters, the arts, historic sites galore, area hospitals and immediate access to unlimited public transportation venues. Everything is literally at your fingertips! Do not hesitate. Schedule the personally guided tour today!
