About 220 W RITTENHOUSE SQUARE

It is only fitting that Philadelphia's grand dame of real estate and one of its most ardent civic boosters would live high above Rittenhouse Square, enjoying truly impeccable views of its treetops and the surrounding cityscape. Barbara Greenfield was a London native who moved to Philadelphia as a young woman and quickly proved herself to be the perfect balance of style and substance. Bright, beautiful and determined, she built a high-end real estate business centered on service, one she described as "marrying people with properties," all the while lending her energy and support to a range of city and arts institutions. Later in life, she created this three-bedroom residence, with help from architect Carl Massara, to be both a respite from her busy professional and civic life and a functional place to entertain friends and family. Its floor plan features comfortably-sized interiors throughout. A large reception foyer opens to an elegant living room and den (or third bedroom) and a formal dining room. All three of these spaces open to terraces and bring in those treasured views and bright southeast light through their many windows. Custom folding doors enable one to close off the dining room from the well-outfitted chef's kitchen. The kitchen includes an island with professional range, Sub-Zero refrigeration, a wine chiller, ice maker, very generous storage, granite counter tops and more. Private quarters include a powder room, a guest bedroom served by a hall bath and a main bedroom suite. The main suite includes a walk-in closet and is served by a marble bath featuring a jetted tub, glass-enclosed stall shower and two sinks. There is an office area situated between the guest and main suite bedrooms. As home to someone who was at the center of city life, and for buyers who desire a similar presence, this is a residence with all the right ingredients: location, views, square footage and amenities. Please note: Condo fees include all utilities plus basic cable.
