    Description

    Welcome to 326 Spruce St.! Stephen Girard was the developer of this amazing, museum quality four story historic townhouse. The first of five grand townhouses in one of the finest blocks in the city, has been lovingly updated throughout the years, while carefully preserving most of its important historic features. Twelve foot ceilings with hand plaster moldings and medallions, original pine floors, nine original fireplaces, marble floors, massive original mirrors , the beautiful blue stone and brick side and back gardens enclosed by the original brick wall and gate, as well as the original privies which now house trash receptacles and garden tools are sure to take you back to a different era. The room sizes are grand. The kitchen is a cook's dream with Viking and Sub Zero appliances and the perfect size island as well as space for family dining. Relax in the adjacent cozy family room with one of the original marbles fireplaces now housing gas logs, or host friends in the expansive living room and dining room both housing marble fireplaces with gas logs. The first floor powder room is tucked into the charming turret, across the hall from an ample coat closet.The main stairway is magnificent in its original beauty, but if too many stairs are a challenge after a long day, the elevator can take you from the basement to the third floor. The garden is the full width of the house and thirty four feet deep. It also wraps around the side of the house where you will find a gas barbecue grill. There is plenty of space to entertain or to just relax with a glass of wine while soothed by the soft sound of the fountain. The beautifully appointed study/office on the second floor above the kitchen and family room has its own full bath as well as two more original fireplaces. One of the fireplaces has remote gas logs. There are multiple built ins, and library shelves including a desk and file drawers overlooking the garden and Three Bears Park, just beyond the gate. The main bedroom and sitting room on the second floor have high ceilings and four double closets. There is even a shoe closet. The ensuite bath with Carrera tile floor and countertop has a custom vanity, large stall shower and graceful, inviting cast iron slipper tub. The third floor in the rear houses the laundry room and bedroom/ playroom with two large closets and a wall of builtins. The Spruce St. side of the house has two large bedrooms, both with original fireplaces and a full bath, as well as a small kitchen. This can also be a perfect guest/inlaw suite, as the kitchen is fully equipped. The fourth floor has two additional bedrooms and a Jack and Jill bath. This impressive historic property has everything anyone needs for a family or entertaining lifestyle. Fantastic restaurants, shops, grocery stores, pharmacy, and banks as well Pennsylvania Hospital, Jefferson and Wills Eye are within a few short blocks. Your gated, well lit parking space is less than a half block away. This property, in the heart of the historic area is a page out of history which can not be replicated.
