Welcome to The Parisian Home of Rittenhouse Square, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire one of the most beautifully finished and newly completed homes to come available in Philadelphia, possibly ever. Offering unprecedented scale and over 60 feet of park frontage, this residential work of art invites you to become an intrinsic part of the city itself. Gaze over dramatic park views while the gleaming city skyline rises above the treetops and take in meticulously renovated interiors that match the historic Beaux Arts building in both grandeur and scope.
This unrivaled full-floor residence is configured as two combined units artfully designed with exceptional style and luxurious comfort in mind. The Main Residence — a two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom home with a den, library and great room — overlooks the building’s exquisite entry marquee and lush park vistas. The equally well-appointed two-bedroom, two-bathroom back residence (formerly a ball room) provides sumptuous accommodations for visiting friends and family and serves as an outpost for catering staff during gatherings. The units can be enjoyed combined or separated, as needed, via both an internal hallway and the private foyer on the third floor — the only level of 1830 Rittenhouse featuring iconic floor-to-ceiling arched windows.
Rivaling the most coveted, beautifully curated townhouses of London, New York and Paris, The Parisian Home of Rittenhouse Square melds the privacy and expansiveness of a triple-wide townhome with the ease of single-level living and the security and amenities of a full-service luxury condominium. Explore The Parisian Home, and you’ll discover elevated opulence wrought with the highest level of quality and bespoke craftsmanship. Every detail is the culmination of the finest materials, finishing techniques and restored vintage antiques executed by hand under the direction of world-class local artisans. While what you see is entirely new, every detail has been crafted to convey the elegance of a bygone era and cater to the demands of contemporary living.
The Main Residence delivers the ambiance of airy indoor-outdoor living, thanks to massive floor-to-ceiling arched windows that open to romantic Juliet balconies overlooking the Square. Not a single residence on the Square can match the panoramic and elegant park outlooks found here. In the ballroom-like great room of the main residence, bold columns, tray ceilings and ornate Scagliola plasterwork soar 10 feet above beautiful custom American white oak floors. Painstakingly applied handmade wallpapers and Venetian plaster flow throughout the home, while four individually unique gas fireplaces add warmth and visual interest. The masterful gourmet European white-oak kitchen exceeds every expectation with a custom Officine Gullo island centerpiece topped by a Louis Vuitton-inspired hood. Serene bedrooms and spa baths rival the world’s best luxury hotel suites, including an incomparable French Chalet owner’s suite filled with handcrafted wood detailing, fabric walls and a tranquil spa bathroom anchored by a historic bathtub and slab marble walls. The enviable boutique-inspired closet is like nothing you’ve seen, thanks to carefully planned illuminated interiors and doors crafted from exquisite antique windows procured from the Paris Flea market and professionally restored locally. All-new systems complete this one-of-a-kind, tastefully understated turnkey sanctuary.
Nestled along the south side of Rittenhouse Square, 1830 was the first high-rise on the Square. Designed by Philadelphia architect Frederick Webber in 1912, this grand dame is widely considered one of the finest examples of classical French architecture in the region. Today, residents of the intimate building enjoy full-time doorman and elevator operator service. A Parisian residence of unparalleled distinction awaits on the Square.
