Discover quintessential luxury living at Society Hill Towers, #29B. This pristine 3 BD, 2 BA condominium was fully renovated in 2016 and presents a rare opportunity to own at I.M. Pei's masterfully designed iconic towers. Enter the West Tower through a magnificently manicured courtyard where lush planters accent brick pathways winding through the dramatic sloped landscape of Society Hill. A huge central fountain provides a perfect mid-day retreat, and continue your gaze upwards to admire stunning foliage from soaring Oak and Maple trees. Beyond the concierge and through the thoughtfully designed lobby/lounge, take the elevator to floor 29. Drop your keys in the foyer and continue towards a spacious, open-concept great room. Immaculate wood floors glow under recessed lighting throughout the hallways and main living space. Cobalt blue sliding barn doors peppered through the house bestow an elevated loft-like touch. Five, floor-to-ceiling windows provide peerless city views and fill the space with an abundance of sunshine. To the East, marvel at the Delaware River waterfront. At night, take in the colored lights of the Ben Franklin Bridge. In the summer, gaze at the Summerfest Ferris Wheel. To the South, admire unmatched South Philly views and the Walt Whitman Bridge. For privacy, take advantage of the custom remote-controlled opaque Hunter Douglas window treatments. Just off the living room is a suitably placed guest bedroom with two South-facing floor-to-ceiling windows. The all new kitchen sports chic design and is perfectly positioned to overlook the main living and dining space. Home chefs will delight in this completely renovated space with gray and white herringbone tile backsplash, crisp white Omega cabinetry, farmhouse sink, stainless steel appliances from KitchenAid and LG, and a chef-grade stove that faces the main living space. An oversized island with quartz countertops and waterfall edges provides the ideal spot for quick meals or entertaining. Above, a modern bubble-glass light fixture provides a soft glow of light. A spacious dining area sits beside the kitchen. Down the hall, you will find two, East-facing bedrooms thoughtfully placed for those seeking retreat and relaxation. The larger main bedroom offers more sun-drenching floor-to-ceiling windows and blackout Hunter Douglass window treatments. Another sliding barn door opens to a fully-renovated, spa-like bath featuring a vast walk-in shower, double vanity with triple mirrors, and more Omega cabinets. A third bedroom, also with blackout Hunter Douglas window treatments, has ample closet space, each outfitted with California closet systems. This room is perfectly sized for an office and features more breathtaking East views. A stackable, full-size LG washer and dryer is discreetly tucked away in the hallway linen closet. A second bath features a soaking tub, upgraded flooring, slate gray tiling, and white quartz vanity. No detail has been overlooked in the renovation of this superb apartment.
