Philadelphia Magazine Design House Tour #DesignHousePHL 2013

DesignHomePHL2013 title

Would you like to visit one of the newest multi-million dollar homes on Philadelphia’s Main Line? I would, and I did, and I’m sharing it with you. I’ll tell you now that it’s a 3-story town home, but the kind of town home you can’t wait to move into.

Let’s just say, before we even start, that we all know I am not a photographer. I’ve hinted to Santa that maybe it’s time for me to get a camera like this Canon Rebel SL1, supposedly one of the lightest digital SLR’s,


but just so you don’t feel cheated on this house tour, know that there are professional photos at the link at the Philadelphia Magazine writeup  (virtual tour live after 11/18) and the actual listing:  and on Radnor Patch  (this is where I found the best pictures).

The themes to this house seem to be: Two’s, Tech, and Tinsel.

Gimme Two!

Clearly, more is better, doubles of everything, including two ovens AND two refrigerators:

Two offices:

Tech with #XFINITYPhilly

As for the tech, see this little gadget here? No, not the coffee maker. Everyone has one of those. The little white plug on the right. That little baby talks to your phone. So you can turn off the iron or coffee maker or whatever you think you might have left on after you left the house. This home is smart.

Tinsel, Glitter and Glam!

This house is all about the bling! Start with the gorgeous lighting in the master bedroom.

Yes, that is an actual bar in the living room. No, it was not just for the event.

See what I mean? Absolutely everything was metallic or just well-lit and shiny.

About that master bedroom…

Yes, I could live there, even if it is a townhouse.

      I don’t know if there are any discounts, but I did learn that 100% of the ticket price goes straight to the Philly Ronald McDonald House. You can feel good about that. I hope you enjoy it if you go.
