2220 Green Street is a home unlike any other in Philadelphia, with expansive interiors that are exquisitely completed and remarkably kept. Clothing tycoon Samuel Fleisher constructed this elegant brownstone with Romanesque elements in 1885, just a short distance from Fairmount Park and Eakins Oval. This house is a work of beauty, from its magnificent entry and reception foyer to its elaborate plasterwork, stained and leaded glass accents, and large, rich millwork. The main reception room has large doors, a fireplace, patterned inlay edging the wood floors, high, vaulted ceilings, and an impression that is exactly as it would have been in 1885. Likewise, the formal dining room can easily host a large gathering with to its cove moldings, pockets doors, and marble-trimmed fireplace. A restaurant-quality kitchen on the lower level complements the well-equipped first-floor kitchen, which includes a Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, butler’s pantry, and a six-burner range. Enormous custom staircase with vintage ornamental paint and a skylight at the top leading to private quarters on the top three floors. With elaborate original millwork and fittings, the space that once may have been the ballroom has been transformed into an executive-sized home office. The main bedroom suite, which occupies the remaining space on this level, has two bathrooms, a walk-in closet with built-ins, and a wet bar/pantry area.Additional bedrooms and a billiards room with access to a unique roof terrace with breathtaking views of the city skyline are located on the two higher levels, which are also reachable by a pilot house elevator. Access to the expansive gathering patio with its own outdoor access, planted gardens, cooking station, media/game room, catering kitchen, guest suite, and full caretaker’s apartment are all located on the first lower level. A two-car garage, a vault, a wine cellar, a shooting range, and plenty of storage are all located on the lowest floor. The land, which extends from Green Street to Brandywine, offers an unmatched amount of room for a city residence. A must-see for the buyer looking for a legacy property in the Art Museum Area’s historic Spring Garden sector with exceptional privacy.
