Nestled within the heart of Philadelphia's Old City historic district, lies a hidden gem that whispers tales of bygone eras - Loxley Court. This enchanting oasis of tranquility, steeped in history and resplendent with lush greenery, invites one to step back in time and savor the beauty of centuries past, that is 3 Loxley Court. 3 Loxley Court is one of just seven historic homes from 1742 in Loxley Court, constructed by the master builder, Benjamin Loxley. Loxley perhaps is most famous for collaborating with Benjamin Franklin, including the kite experiment, when Franklin not only used Loxley's house key to tie to the kite, but did so in this very courtyard! The house has been beautifully restored to the highest fit and finish. As one enters the wrought iron gates through Arch St, they are greeted with a beautiful, private courtyard, shared amongst these seven beautifully restored homes. Brick pathways, worn smooth by centuries of footfall line the courtyard, and streetlamps older than a century adorn it. The flora here is a carefully curated selection of plants and flowers that would have graced Philadelphia's gardens during its colonial and revolutionary periods; fragrant Roses, shrubs, and a fruit bearing Peach tree - embedded directly in front of 3 Loxley Court! What makes this home truly invaluable, is it's not only one of the larger homes in the courtyard, but it's situated on the end of the row, yielding an additional exposure of windows! 3 Loxley Court has Eastern, Western and Northern exposures, saturating the home in natural sunlight. Entering the home, a time-worn plaque is above the threshold of the door from the Philadelphia Historical Commission, certifying this "No. 319", ensuring the preservation of this historic property. Stepping over the threshold, one is immediately enveloped in a world of opulence, as every inch of the interior has been thoughtfully restored to its former glory! Original random-width Pine wood floors are throughout the main level. Each plank is unique and reflects the natural growth patterns of the Pine trees from which they were milled - this was considered the hallmark for architectural excellence in the 18th century. Heading into the living room, there is a central fireplace, refurbished to showcase its historical significance. Crystal sconces thoughtfully highlight the seating area. Adjacent to the living room, is a state-of-the-art kitchen, with the finest Wolf, Sub-Zero and Cove stainless steel appliances! The custom Wolf range features a dual fuel design; the precise control of gas burners, with the consistent baking of an electric oven -finished with the iconic red knobs! Countertops of gleaming Marble provide ample workspace, and cabinets extend to the ceiling, offering generous storage solutions. Off the back of the kitchen is the crown jewel of the home, a private backyard, spanning roughly 625 square feet. The backyard features Northern, Southern and Eastern exposures, whereas the Eastern periphery of this oasis is encased in a roughly 25' towering Ivy-clad brick wall; this frames the space in a way that can't be replicated. Slate stones span the width of the yard, and a Rose Garden is planted here. Subtle outdoor lighting highlights this setting and is perfect to enjoy al fresco dining year-round. The first upper level of the home has 2 large bedrooms, including the primary, and a 3-piece bathroom. There is also a laundry closet on this level. Heading up another level, are bedrooms 3 and 4, whereas bedroom 4 has been converted into a home office. A centuries-old pew from Christ Church where the Founding Fathers once prayed, has been anchored here. The main, upper, and 2nd upper level of the home are each roughly 525 square feet, and there is approximately 275 square feet of finished basement. There is an additional full-size laundry room in the basement.
