Years in Philly: 9
Current Home: After living in various Philly homes for 9 years, I call outside of the city home and wander between the burbs and the beach stopping in the city along the way.
My love note:
Your proximity to the ocean and the country has always been a draw to me. In just an hour, one can easily change the backdrop to the rolling farms of the country to the west or the crashing waves of the ocean to the east. However, it is city blocks like Delancey that speak to your history as the cornerstone of our nation.
Marble thresholds with 200 years of subtle wear tell a story of all who have passed through the home. Floor to ceiling blown glass windows call to a fading trade with every wavy pane. A place to tie up your horse and scrape your boots… Random width hardwood floors… Carriage houses around back… They just don’t make ’em like this anymore, Philly.
