You can have your cake and eat it too. This tri-level home with parking designed by award winning architects Harman Deutsch, is technically a condo and has all the security and maintenance benefits of a condo, but it FEELS like a townhome.

Start at the top with the expansive roof deck occupying half of the building's foot print and work your way down. The roof deck on this beautiful home features lovingly nurtured (practically sung to) professionally selected plantings, and comfortable teak furniture included in the sale. The vistas from this vantage point include a glittering skyline view of Philly's most architecturally significant sky scrapers, a fantastically unique urban ruin converted into the outdoor space of the neighboring residential building, and a rogue urban forest with enormous lush trees.

On your way down from the roof deck you'll enjoy all 3 bedrooms and laundry facilities on one floor. The master suite is spacious enough for a king bed, has multiple windows, his and hers closets, and a sparkling spa-like en suite bathroom with custom hardware. Between the master and the additional bedrooms find a skylight and multiple windows in the hall day-lighting the extra wide switch back stair case. Find ample storage in the hall closets. The two spacious guest bedrooms flank the European style guest bathroom. Closets and windows everywhere.

On the first floor find everything you need to entertain your friends and enjoy your family. There's an open floor plan, sliding glass doors to the balcony and a powder room. The super ergonomic chef's kitchen features stone counters, stainless steel appliances, an island kitchen and pendant lighting. This kitchen is as perfect as the memories you'll make and the cookies you'll bake for years to come. Step down from the unit to street level and find gated parking in a lot only accessible by the 4 owners occupying this building. This property is in PRISTINE condition, practically brand new, with 6 years left remaining on the tax abatement.
