This quintessential Georgian style mansion, built circa 1790 and otherwise known as the Wharton House, is nestled in the heart of charming Society Hill. Joseph Wharton, who founded the prestigious Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania, resided in this exceptional home in the 1800's. This gracious and coveted historical home showcases the most elegant architectural details from the original wainscoting & arched doorways to the stunning pine floors and the multiple fireplaces surrounded by elegant King of Prussia marble mantels. Enter into the dramatic & inviting foyer which leads to the grand-sized living room with 2 living spaces each with a beautiful fireplace, tall windows and magnificent pine floors. The large formal dining room with fireplace leads to the eat-in kitchen which opens to the private brick paved driveway with 2-Car Parking, and the delightful side & rear brick paved gardens featuring beautiful plantings. The powder room completes this floor. The exquisite grand staircase leads to the second floor which houses the spacious master bedroom suite with fireplace, separate dressing area, full bathroom, access to the roof for a potential deck as well as access to the back staircase. There are two more very large rooms on this floor each with a fireplace that can be used as either a family room, bedroom or library. The third floor offers 4 more spacious bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. Additional features of this amazing home include a full finished attic, a huge basement with laundry, and dual zoned HVAC systems.
