You Could Own An Indoor Pool in Rittenhouse Friday, June 30, 2017
But that's probably not gonna happen
Sadly, Mr. Masciantonio passed away last year. And now his estate is selling off the two properties, having listed them just yesterday. The corner property is listed for $450K, while the interior building, which is set up as a duplex, is listed for $725K. It's probably safe to assume that the duplex needs a ton of work and the property at the corner surely needs some tlc as well.
Ideally, we'd like to see someone purchase both of these properties, fix them up, and maintain the odd pool at the corner as an amenity for their home. Or perhaps as a little competition for the Lombard Swim Club. More than likely though, developers will snap up the properties, demolish the corner, and build a $1M+ home with parking in the back. It will be a sad day for us when this happens, as the neighborhood will lose a little bit of its personality. Such is life though, in our ever evolving city.
