    The Penthouse at Symphony House

    Park Avenue meets the Avenue of the Arts. Enjoy commanding skyline views at this spectacular two-level penthouse that reads like a single-family home in the sky. With a gracious, smart floor plan and an expansive private terrace, this residence atop Symphony House at the 30th and 31st floor levels is a city penthouse beyond compare. It is elegant yet not overdone, with an array of timeless architectural features and finishes. Its 4,663 square feet of interiors are open, yet rooms can be closed off via pocket or French doors for privacy. Floor-to-ceiling windows with exposure in three directions, extra-high ceiling height and access to three separate outdoor spaces create an airy, sun-filled environment. Oak floors and a neutral palette serve as an adaptable base for any decorating style. The primary first-floor spaces lend themselves to entertaining with easy flow through the living and dining areas as well as to outdoor spaces, including a balcony off the dining room where guests can enjoy spectacular views. The massive, landscaped terrace designed by prominent landscape architect Laurie Olin becomes your garden in the sky. The skyline is showcased from east to west in a most spectacular way from this expansive rooftop plateau, designed for relaxing and entertaining. At its heart it features a wisteria-laden, custom steel pergola. Dining in this garden space feels like a touch of Tuscany in the city. The terrace, with evergreen plantings to maintain interest through every season, is custom-lit to add ambiance to evening events. Inside, the custom kitchen and butler’s pantry are designed and outfitted to serve the caterer and the home chef equally well. The main level includes fireplaces in the living room and a custom wood-paneled study which also has its own Juliette-style balcony. There is a light-filled family room with a fireplace and a spacious home office with extensive walnut built-ins. The private quarters are located on the second level, accessible via an internal, mahogany-finished elevator and a graceful, curved staircase. On one side is the main suite, a group of rooms as comfortable as that in any suburban Main Line home. From its dressing room, to its walk-in closet with custom built-ins, bedroom and superbly designed bath, it is a serene retreat at the end of the day. The built-in closets and separate dressing room in the main suite transcend that of most city residences. There are two additional generous en suite bedrooms, each with walk-in closets and built-ins; one has a tub/shower full bath and the other features a seamless glass shower. In addition there is a full-size, vented laundry room, two service entrances (one on each floor), and a wealth of storage for seasonal items including a cedar closet. This penthouse includes four-car, reserved garage self-parking with direct elevator access to your apartment, two extra large storage lockers, and the many, top-shelf amenities Symphony House is known for: 24/7 doormen and concierge; an on-site wine cellar and tasting room; a 65’ indoor pool and spa; fitness center and locker rooms with steam and sauna; boardroom; party room; library; catering kitchen and massage room. Offered for the first time, this is one of the pinnacle penthouses in Philadelphia perfectly positioned with the Kimmel Center, the city’s top arts venues and highly rated restaurants right outside your door. A must-see for the buyer seeking a city residence like no other.
