Having undergone a meticulous renovation in 2015, 22 Saint James Court is truly in a league of its own. Ultra modern yet wonderfully quaint, this corner home on a cobblestone street claims among its luxuries a lush garden in the sky, sleek glass paneled staircase, wonderfully refined kitchen and original wood burning fireplace. Alluring best describes the warmly lit foyer complete with large coat closet, setting the scene for all to come. Custom Flos stairwell illuminations lead the way to the main floor. Set atop warm maple hardwood flooring and flanked by a wonderful two-story front window, original wood burning fireplace, and lush greenery, the living room is not only captivating, but serves as open and airy retreat that one would be hard pressed to leave. From the custom Allure window coverings that glide down the tall walls to the exposed two-story flue of the fireplace, and frameless glass panels that encapsulate the stairwell, a theme of intentional clean lines continues throughout the home. Just beyond the living room is the central eat-in kitchen complete with island. Masterfully executed, the custom kitchen is minimalistic yet indulgent. Illuminated Poggenpohl shelving casts a hint of the sophistication of the room from a distance. Contemporary Miele and Zephyr appliances, Poggenpohl overlay cabinetry, and Dornbracht and Blanco fixtures captivates even the most critical chef or entertainer. The first of two bedrooms is just beyond the kitchen and enjoys the home's corner property status with wonderful windows abutting greenery. This bedroom is outfitted with two sizable closets and can comfortably contain a queen sized bedroom set or function effortlessly as an office with day bed. A wonderful full bathroom complete with Porcelanosa tiling and vanity, Astro lighting, Toto toilet, and linen closet completes this level. An illuminated glass staircase leads the way to the second level, a noteworthy floor that claims home to both the master quarters and private garden terrace. With views of the living room and large front window wall, a glass framed balcony precedes the master suite. Continue past the landing and enter the master bedroom, a suite well deserving of its title. This champion of a room is complete with a wall of windows, separate sitting area, walk in closet and en suite bathroom. Draw the custom Allure window treatments to reveal a terrace complete with new Philadelphia Awning Company awning. The terrace provides ample sitting space and features an irrigated garden that awaits a new green thumb to tend to it. Back inside, the master bathroom boasts a glass paneled shower complete with rainfall shower head, Porcelanosa vanity and tiling, simplistic Artemide and Absinthe lighting, and computerized Toto toilet. The owners wonderfully retrofitted an existing sky window to cast natural sunlight into the shower and to the main floor below. A laundry closet featuring LG front loading steam washer and dryer completes this level.Additional amenities include Smart Home Technologies that oversee the control of temperature, sound, lighting and security, a tankless hot water heater and noise softening insulation measures. Dedicated GARAGE PARKING is available nearby at the parking garage~s lowest monthly rate. This property is located within the MCCALL SCHOOL CATCHMENT, one of three sought after school catchments within the city. Some of the custom furniture that was curated for this property can be negotiated into an acceptable offer. With a central address steps from Washington Square Park in historic Society Hill, the new owner of 22 Saint James Court will enjoy the home~s close proximity to the neighborhood~s best restaurants and shoppes while resting assured that their retreat of a residence is only steps away from the hustle and bustle of city life!
