We can’t decide which is the most awesome thing about this home. Is it that it’s newer construction but decidedly without the stark cookie-cutter vibe? Is it the jaw-dropping skyline view from the roofdeck? Or maybe most of all is its ideal location super close to Washington Ave and actually walkable to Center City. Enter into the true heart of the home, the kitchen, which has a large dining area and all the bells and whistles you expect—J&K Shaker-style cabinets, quartz countertops with undermount sink and gooseneck faucet, and slide-in five-burner range with chimney hood—and cool gray stone and metal backsplash. With a modern take on the split-level layout, the main living room is beyond the kitchen and on a lower level. Here the home’s trademark super-high ceilings (12 feet in this room!) and pretty hardwood floors meet enormous windows that overlook the private rear patio. The finished basement adds a bonus living area—though with the ceiling height and natural light it hardly feels below grade. There’s a large media/playroom/hang-out zone, an oversize alcove that would be great as a home office or deluxe craft/hobby station, the first of many closets throughout, and a full bath with pretty porcelain tile tub surround. Back upstairs, the second floor has two large and sunny bedrooms, each with its own large closet; a full bath with a cool textured porcelain tile surround and laundry closet with Whirlpool Duet frontloaders. Upstairs is the master bedroom level, with a large bedroom with double closet in addition to a massive walk-in, and a spa-like bathroom—it’s got a separate WC with linen closet, a stylish double vanity and a to-die-for porcelain- and cement-tiled walk-in shower that’s bathed in natural light from a cleverly placed transom and has dual showerheads. And finally, there’s that roofdeck, which, thanks to the smart layout of the third floor, can be accessed without intruding on the master bedroom’s privacy. The pilot house with wet bar opens to a large L-shaped deck with a remarkable view that sweeps from the Cira Centre and emerging western skyline to where the full Center City skyline ends to the east. This block of Dorrance is a quiet little side street with little to no through traffic in what is arguably the best pocket of Point Breeze since it is a straight (and short!) shot to Rittenhouse Square.
