Introducing the historic Anthony Wayne Ridgeway Mansion, a magnificently restored four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom townhouse combining historic charm and modern amenities, contemporary designer interiors and stunning outdoor space in desirable Rittenhouse Square.

Completely renovated in 2006 -- improved and thoroughly maintained since -- this 6,000-square-foot townhouse welcomes lavish gatherings and comfortable daily life with exquisite living space, luxurious bedrooms and exceptional amenities across five levels and a partially finished basement. Inside, discover magnificent scale thanks to ceilings that soar up to 12 feet tall over hardwood floors, phenomenal millwork, designer wall coverings and oversized historically appropriate reproduction windows.

The classic double vestibule opens to a stunning parlor sitting area and formal dining room flanked by the elegant walnut staircase, tall front windows, a warm gas fireplace and a chic powder room. Ahead, the spectacular gourmet kitchen welcomes chef's table dining at the 13-foot granite island. Custom cabinetry by Brookhaven and an array of elite appliances, including 48 inch 6-burner with grill Wolf range, a wall oven and microwave by Wolf, a Sub-Zero refrigerator-freezer and wine refrigerator and two Bosch dishwashers. Enjoy casual meals in the breakfast area. Or step through the wall of glass doors for al fresco dining in the 110-foot-deep property's delightful rear garden featuring a deck and patio topped by a canopy of trees. Open the red door in the backyard for a clear & secure path to 16th st.

On the second floor, you'll want to curl up alongside the stately gas fireplace in the large family room or retire to the regal library, where cherry paneling and built-in bookcases rise beneath a handsome light fixture and medallion. Two sets of 10 foot pocket doors enable an open floor plan or the private use of both spaces. You'll never want to leave the third level's impressive full-floor owner's retreat, a serene escape featuring an oversized bedroom and sitting area, a dressing room, walk-in closet and wet bar/kitchenette. The en suite owner's bathroom beckons with a fireplace, separate vanities with Robern medicine cabinets, a Kohler soaking tub and a walk-in shower for two, all surrounded by rich marble and granite. Three more elegant bedrooms and three full bathrooms, including one en-suite, provide lovely lodging for friends and family, while a nearby utility room with a Bosch washer-dryer makes laundry day a breeze.

Head to the top floor to discover the home's crowning glory -- a massive roof deck perfect for summer barbecues alongside breathtaking city skyline views. Just inside, the summer kitchen features a dishwasher and refrigerator, while the deck offers a dedicated gas line to the barbecue grill. On the lower level, you'll find limestone floors, excellent storage, a workshop, home gym and a wine showcase, securing this home's reputation as a haven for relaxing and entertaining. BONUS: The lower level has egress to Pine and to the backyard. A three-zone high-efficiency HVAC system, integrated speakers and a wireless security system complete this remarkable Rittenhouse sanctuary.

Built in 1865, this fine Italianate townhouse features a facade of brick and brownstone topped with a handsome mansard roof. Anthony Wayne Ridgeway -- a direct descendent of General "Mad" Anthony Wayne, a Founding Father and a Continental Army officer during the American Revolution called 1525 Pine home.

Nestled along a tree-lined street within the Rittenhouse Historic District, and featured on the Philadelphia Register of Historic District, this home offers unparalleled access to Center City amenities. Just a block away, The Kimmel Cultural Campus features performances by the city opera, ballet and chamber orchestras. Excellent access to fantastic shopping, dining, museums and transit completes this sought-after neighborhood.
