Two units have been combined to form this unique and stunning 2046 square foot apartment with two separate balconies at Independence Place, a premier building on Washington Square. A welcoming foyer, with a large coat closet, leads you into a spacious open plan living room, dining room, kitchen, with bamboo flooring, a wall of windows and balcony beyond. Adjacent is a most original office/study that transforms easily through a "NanaWall" of floor to ceiling sliding glass and wood panels and door, into the second bedroom. This bedroom features a wall-bed for easy conversion from office to bedroom. A full bath opens directly to this bedroom, but is also accessible from the living room area as the guest bathroom. The kitchen has granite countertops, with a large wrap-around bar height eating counter, stainless steel appliances, glass tile backsplash, and loads of storage space. The master bedroom suite encompasses almost the entirety of the former 928 square foot second unit, including an enormous bedroom, huge completely outfitted walk-in closet/dressing room, and an exquisite bathroom with walk-in shower, jacuzzi tub, and dressing table. The second balcony sits off the master bedroom. The unit also has an unusually large separate laundry room with built-in utility storage. Independence Place is renown for its attentive doormen and front desk personnel, its beautiful lobby, and a plaza, which permits short term parking. There is also the great convenience of having an underground parking garage available for an additional monthly rent. The building is directly across the street from beautiful Washington Square Park and has an excellent location within walking distance of shops, theaters, films, restaurants, and all the attractions associated with Philadelphia's historic past.
