Inside Look: History meets opulence in this Wash West condo

Your weekly dose of #RealEstatePorn

Rarely will we feature one property here atInside Look, but a singleglance at this gorgeous, boutiquecondoon Pine Street made it clear: This beauty stands on her own.

Originally built in 1837,715 Pine St. underwent renovations earlier this year with Main Line interior design whiz Leslie Hayes. No detail was too miniscule to avoid Hayes' dramatic, wow-factor styling, from custom sculpted moldings in the entryway to the Old Hollywood-style media room and wet bar downstairs, replete with lush fabrics and glamorous hardware.

The three-bedroom home with parking for two carsis currently listed for$1.65 million.

Let's start in the kitchen: Mediterranean colors and cabinets lavishly adorned with24-karat gold fixtures bring warmth to this state-of-the-art stunner. Appliances fromMieleandLiebherrare seamlessly built inthecustomcabinets and top-tiergranitecountertops,and the backsplash is clad incopper.

The kitchen feeds into the home's main living area, withsoaring ceilings and an attached glass solarium looking over the home's private backyard.

Toward the front of the home's main floor, find the chic master suite with customized floor-to-ceiling closets (plus a ladder!) to keep all the fabulous shoes and attire you'll need when you're throwing parties in this house every week. The master bath rivals a spa, with a separate soaking tub and glass-enclosed shower, a glass-tiledaccent wall, his-and-her vanity sinks andblinged-outvanity lighting and hardware. Or head to the private master library for an escape from the noise. Read a book, catch up on the news or just sit, admiring the room's soaring windows and gorgeous chandeliers.

"It's a very unique property," said listing agent SolonAlphorotis. "My favorite part, that's really hard, because I can't imagine not hanging out in that back yard. But then there's the library...as long as you're a gentleman or a lady, you will definitely appreciate every inch of room in that library. It's that awesome. It's got everything you want in that little room. You walk in there, you feel like a king and a queen."

​Downstairs, find two more bedrooms and two full-sized bathrooms. Our favorite feature: The arched brick entryways that spotlightthe home's original architecture.

"When you walk through the lower level and you see the original foundation of the home, you know it's not moving,"Alphorotissaid. "It's notgoing anywhere. It's solid, it's tight, it's strong.

Then there's the media room. In any other home, zebra rugs would come off astacky, but here, it just works.Kick back with family for a movie night, or host friendsfor the big game, andserve drinks fromthe bar.

If you're still not convinced, check out the private, fenced-in backyard, featuring a wood-burning fireplace, a built-in massive TV screen andplenty of space to sit, eat, entertain, host a movie night or catch the sunrise with your morning coffee.
