Description

If you're looking for your own private oasis in a secure luxury high rise building at a fantastic price in downtown Philadelphia, you've got to check out Unit 5J @ the Western Union Building. This boutique building features 24 hour Concierge / Security with private gym, and is centrally located in the sought after neighborhood of Washington Square West in downtown Philadelphia. (It's really the best kept secret in Philly.) Nestled on the 5th floor, (enabling you to take the steps OR the elevator), this lovely 1 bed 1 bath condo is situated in a very quiet spot facing the courtyard, giving it an air of peace, privacy and tranquility. Upon entering, you will note the entrance foyer, which acts as a buffer between the main living area on the right and the bedroom and bath on the left . You will fall for its VERY HIGH SOURING CEILINGS and large windows (which make the unit feel more spacious than some of the other older condos with low ceilings in that area). This home features an open floor plan, modern kitchen and solid hardwood flooring! The bedroom is plenty big for a king, and boasts a LARGE WALK IN CLOSET. There is a coat closet and an "in- unit" Washer/Dryer included in the sale. A perfect first time home buyer purchase, downsize purchase, or pied-de-terre for someone looking for the convenience, security and peace of mind of a full service Center City building where parking is one site for an extra monthly fee (when available). The VERY LOW CONDO FEE includes water, sewer, gas cooking, a fitness center, and a courtyard with a private secure dog run. COULD ALSO MAKE A GOOD INVESTMENT PROPERTY. The historic Western Union Building was originally built 100 years ago as the headquarters of Western Union Telegraph Company, and was beautifully and tastefully expanded and redesigned into a luxury 12- story boutique residence by Philadelphia's renowned architect Cecile Baker in 2008. The residents love it so much, that, in general, there are typically few on the market at any given time compared to other high rise buildings where the staff and resident turn over is higher. One of the great things about Wash West is its central location: less than 7 blocks in any direction to most of the great neighborhoods , historic squares and parks of Philadelphia: walkable to beautiful Washington Square and Rittenhouse Square, to the vibrant arts district on Broad St, to Restaurant Row; an easy walk to the center city business district and neighborhoods like Old City, Bella Vista, Queen Village and the Italian Market, all offering award winning dining, shopping and nightlife - and very close to public transportation and Jefferson Hospital!
