Description

Welcome to 1629 Locust Street, a once-in-a-generation opportunity to acquire an architectural masterpiece by Horace Trumbauer. Built in 1902, Mr. Trumbauer masterfully designed this five-story townhouse for a sugar baron Edward C. Knight. This property is one of the few remaining contributions of Mr. Trumbauer to the architectural history of Philadelphia. In the exterior fa+-ade, Mr. Trumbauer incorporated bold design elements of 18th Century French architecture, such as wrought iron gates created by Samuel Yellin on the front door, windows and balconies. The interior of the Knight Residence is truly exquisite with the most prominent design feature being the elliptical Carrara marble staircase with an elegant iron railing that rises four stories to an oeil-de-boeuf skylight. The second floor is comprised of two Louis XV style salon rooms, which currently serve as meeting rooms. These rooms feature elaborate bronze mounts with arched windows and molded plaster rondels. The third and fourth floors are also elegantly designed in Louis XVI style. The fifth floor, which previously served as the butler's room, is connected to the fourth floor by an interior spiral wooden staircase. With generous CMX-3 zoning, this property provides a blank canvas for occupancy and redevelopment by either an investor or occupant. The location on beautiful tree-lined Locust Street is reminiscent of the opulence and elegance of old-world Philadelphia.
