This 2,800 sq. ft. contemporary home with 4 bedrooms, a den, hot tub spa, plus large garden, 5 decks and a garage, is found on a quiet street with a secret. A visual trick makes the street appear to be a dead end: Kids play, dogs walk, and neighbors visit without traffic hassles. This home is located in an oasis right in the heart of all the walking conveniences of Queen Village and Society Hill yet offers great privacy. Enter the dramatic, 3-story foyer with two coat closets, a convenient powder room, and enjoy the large den with full views of the striking, triangular landscaped garden with a lovely flowering Rose of Sharon, and Japanese red maple. The second floor is an open floorplan with a spectacular living room, a wood burning fireplace and 10? ceilings, then up a few steps to the ample dining area, perfect deck for grilling, and a true cook?s kitchen. Massive amounts of light pour into these spaces from the foyer and huge windows like a beach house even in the winter including a skylight over the staircase. The Sellers love to cook and the custom kitchen reflects their passion. Every inch of the custom Quakermaid cherry kitchen has been designed with care including the 6-burner Viking gas cooktop, incredible double Viking ovens, Sub Zero refrigerator, dedicated spice closet, and tray closets, pull-out pantry, pull-out matching bar cart, under counter lighting, double lazy susans, appliance garage, specially made cabinet with china closet above an inlaid desktop and cubby holes for mail, and storage for anything a chef might need. The third floor has 3 nice sized bedrooms 2 with double closets, a hallway linen closet, a good sized split full bath with a tub, and a deck off one of the bedrooms. The fourth floor master suite has a deck on the West side of the home, three double closets, a spacious skylit bathroom with a walk-in shower and bidet, and a three person spa in a hot-tub room with an opening skylight and windows all around to let the breezes waft in. Twilight, soft music and candles are optional at the end of a long and tiring day! Finally, a 4th deck leads to a spiral staircase to a spectacular roof deck with a bar counter, 360 degree views of Center City, the Delaware River, multiple bridges and fireworks on the 4th of July. This glorious space was carefully constructed with steel supporting beams and can accommodate 40 guests without a moment?s worry. The Sellers have loved living in their home for over 20 years and are ready to pass it on to another homeowner to enjoy the experience. This is not your typical townhouse. The many recent improvements include: $30,000 worth of new stucco in the rear, a brand new HVAC on the roof, complete interior painting, newly refurbished hardwood floors throughout, wired speaker system in the living room, and two bedrooms, alabaster foyer chandelier, bedroom/library with built-in bookshelves, cameras, security system, and a one car garage with extra storage. Neighborhood amenities: This home is in Meredith Catchment, one of the finest public schools in the city. World class farmers market, new Giant Heirloom Market coming this winter, restaurants, bars, movie theaters, a wealth of things to do on foot and great public transportation to head elsewhere. But you won't want to leave.
