A common misconception is that Philadelphia's a city of beer drinkers.
OK, it's actually a great city for beer imbibers. But for those of us who'd rather get our daily serving of fruit in a glass, Philly's a haven for vino lovers, too. Dozens of wine bars dot Center City, and Philly Wine Week, now in its third year, is catching a buzz — and getting lots of people buzzed.
Whether you're a collector or a drinker, there's no denying these wine cellars are just grape.
Nestled below this four-story Federal-style home in Washington West is a temperature-regulated wine cellar with storage for 700 bottles. You read that right: 700.
Upstairs, this $2.1 million home features four bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, eight working marble fireplaces and a Jacuzzi tub. Its custom pine kitchen includes high-end Viking appliances, a SubZero refrigerator, an English tile backsplash and a marble baking surface. Old meets new here, with original hardwood, custom molding and colonial reproduction chandeliers.
Situated on Haddonfield's famed private street, Kings Lane, this five-bedroom home features a massive temperature-controlled wine room in the finished basement, with a wet bar and custom cabinetry. When you're not showing off your incredible collection of vintages, entertain your guests in the formal living room, eat-in kitchen with granite countertops or the large backyard patio.
Going for $1.3 million, this two-story stunner is a step off the beaten path.
