Introducing The Crown of Rittenhouse Square, an iconic Philadelphia penthouse where regal parapet-walled terraces deliver unimpeded views over the park and city. Available for the first time in nearly three decades, this phenomenal residence offers the opportunity to create a breathtaking home with exclusive roof rights, securing your place among the storied Rittenhouse Square skyline.

Perched atop 1900 Rittenhouse Square, this spectacular penthouse occupies the entire 19th floor with full panoramic views of the city. Seven sets of French doors open to the crown-like 1,200-square-foot terrace where postcard views unfold in every direction. Gaze over the prized Square below, the skyline ahead and enjoy unobstructed outlooks stretching across all of South Philadelphia. Wake up with the sun and bask in gleaming sunset vistas that skim over University City.

Inside the majestic 3,500-square-foot home, discover gorgeous marble and herringbone hardwood flooring, soaring 11.5-foot-tall ceilings, 8-foot doors, grand openings, and an array of exceptional millwork and plaster details. Two key-locked elevators usher guests to the private entry gallery, where a barrel vaulted hallway separates elegant entertaining spaces from extravagant bedroom suites. Along the entire northern exposure, three masterful entertaining areas - a great room, dining room and kitchen- open directly to the 60-foot-wide terrace creating an ideal seamless flow for lavish gatherings alongside park and skyline vistas. The work-of-art great room impresses with rich hand-hewn quartered oak paneling, leaded glass and a massive 17th century limestone wood-burning fireplace, all imported from castles in England and the British Isles and expertly reassembled within the home in 1928. A pair of French doors open the space to the terrace, while the vaulted plaster ceiling dazzles with ornate floral scrollwork.

The adjacent oval dining room is reminiscent of the building's iconic Adam-style oval lobby 19 floors below. Reeded wainscoting and a ceiling medallion add a distinctive touch, while rounded bay windows and French doors frame unmatched Rittenhouse views. Ahead, the existing breakfast room and kitchen invite you to create the contemporary chef's paradise of your dreams, wrapped in terrace access and jaw-dropping sunsets. A convenient powder room and bar area complete the extraordinary entertaining wing. The home's luxurious accommodations include three well-appointed bedroom suites, each with a private bathroom. The palatial owners retreat occupies the entire southern expanse of the residence with a large bedchamber featuring a gas fireplace and a spacious sitting room, each providing direct access to the sunny south-facing terrace. In between, a six-piece marble bathroom embraces wide-open outlooks, while multiple closets provide exceptional wardrobe storage. Two well-appointed guest suites enjoy eastern exposures, and one is perfect as a parlor or library. With exclusive roof rights, the entire top of the building is yours to imagine. Perfect your green thumb within the existing greenhouse frame or repurpose the space as a gym, lounge or whatever you desire on this wide-open wonderland.

In 1928, the CEO of AT&T designed this entire penthouse as a new addition to the original 18-story building. Designed by the New York City firm of Sugarman, Hess & Berger and built on the original site of the Wanamaker Mansion, 1900 Rittenhouse Square is a much-admired Regency Revival masterpiece with a commanding position on the southwest corner of the park. Today, residents of this pet friendly landmark enjoy 24-hour doorman service. From this outstanding Rittenhouse location, you're surrounded by the centerpiece park and renowned local dining. Lead this truly one-of-a-kind Philadelphia penthouse into its next era of greatness by creating your unique dream residence in the crowning glory of Rittenhouse Square. This is an "as-is" sale.
