Rarely will we feature one property here at Inside Look, but a single glance at this gorgeous, boutique condo on 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 cars is currently listed for $1.65 million.
Let's start in the kitchen: Mediterranean colors and cabinets lavishly adorned with 24-karat gold fixtures bring warmth to this state-of-the-art stunner. Appliances from Miele and Liebherr are seamlessly built in the custom cabinets and top-tier granite countertops, and the backsplash is clad in copper.
The kitchen feeds into the home's main living area, with soaring 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-tiled accent wall, his-and-her vanity sinks and blinged-out vanity 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 Solon Alphorotis. "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 spotlight the 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," Alphorotis said. "It's not going 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 as tacky, but here, it just works. Kick back with family for a movie night, or host friends for the big game, and serve drinks from the 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 and plenty of space to sit, eat, entertain, host a movie night or catch the sunrise with your morning coffee.
