A haven in the sky at 1706 Rittenhouse, the only Rittenhouse Square building that features no-touch, automated valet parking and key-fob-controlled nonstop elevators, this full-floor designer residence is a top choice for the buyer who values privacy, less contact in their daily routine, fresh air through operable windows and outdoor space. Enjoy spectacular skyline views from its private terraces, and with floor-to-ceiling windows, never miss a sunrise or sunset. Express elevators whisk you from the garage to the apartment’s private vestibule where double doors open into the 4,166-square-foot interior. Finished in a cool, neutral palette, sophisticated yet comfortable, the space is well designed for entertaining and certainly large enough for a home office. The great room showcases exceptional millwork with a tray ceiling, built-ins on each side of the gas fireplace and rich crown and baseboard moldings. Large enough to accommodate a dining area, this airy space provides mesmerizing views making it an extra-special setting for evening events. Look into the climate-controlled wine room from the great room. A wet bar with under counter refrigerator is conveniently located just off of the wine room in the kitchen. Whether you are the cook or have a chef-for-hire, the well-designed kitchen is easy to work in and has excellent natural light. It is outfitted with plentiful floor-to-ceiling cabinetry; a walk-in pantry/utility room; top-grade stainless appliances from Wolf, Sub-Zero and Asko; and a center island that seats 6, perfect for casual evenings, with an extra-deep double stainless sink. All is finished with sparkling tile backsplash and stone countertops. Off the kitchen is a family room with an electric fireplace and access to a terrace. Private quarters include four bedrooms and 3.1 bathrooms. The main bedroom suite, with electric fireplace and sitting area, is finished in a serene, restful palette. Its walk-in closet is lined in built-ins and is large enough to function as a dressing room for two people; the bath is beautifully tiled and has a jetted soaking tub and a two-person shower with dramatic views through frosted or clear glass. Three additional bedrooms are all generously sized and have large closets with organizers. This residence has important amenities, including operable windows throughout for air circulation, a full laundry room, motorized window shades and recessed lighting on Lutron controls and an Aprilaire system. The building itself provides residents with a 24/7 concierge, indoor heated pool, fitness center, private garden for residents and chauffeur-driven luxury vehicle. Because this residence’s custom build-out was completed in 2014, its tax abatement continues into 2024. 1706 Rittenhouse has been a premier city address since it was completed and is sure to remain so. Restaurants, shopping and the park are right outside the door. Come to the building with a smart design and premium on privacy, now more relevant than ever.
