Delancey Place is said to be the most prestigious address in Philadelphia, much of this due to the great charm of the homes and the beautiful facades. We brought the Old Village touch to the windows, shutters, handrail, and window grates on the front of this historic home near the Rosenbach Museum - and a gorgeous stain on the front door.
We worked with designer Ashli Mizell and Cherokee Construction to remodel this historic Federal style town home that is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places - and was featured in the November 2016 issue of Philadelphia Magazine (p146).
The project features high gloss colors from
Fine Paints of Europe throughout, a beautiful wood wash in the library and a spectacular venetian plaster in the foyer, both by the Old Village Design Studio™.
Old Village created a beautiful finish for the front doors and painted the door frame, windows, shutters and railing using Fine Paints of Europe to give this home great curb appeal
Philadelphia's Most Prestigious Address
Delancey Place is a series of streets in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood of Philadelphia, named after Right Reverend William Heathcote DeLancey (1797–1865), provost of the University of Pennsylvania (1828–1834) and a bishop of the Episcopal Church. Known as the "Belle of Rittenhouse Square", the area includes a variety of types of homes from carriage houses on the eastern end, palatial mansions from 1800-2000s in a variety of architectural styles including Second Empire Victorian, Italianate, Georgian Revival, Classical Revival, Queen Anne and Victorian Gothic (the personal style of Frank Furness). Nos. 2000–2018 are listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the renowned Rosenbach Museum is at 2008. This block also appears in a number of films made in Philadelphia including Trading Places, The Sixth Sense and others.
Fine Paints of Europe
Beautiful woodwork really stands out with a high gloss. We used lighter colors from
Fine Paints of Europe here to highlight the bookshelves, mantle, ornate crown moldings, doors, and casings.
The entrance door features custom stains on both the interior and exterior plus a
gorgeous blue venetian plaster - both from the Old Village Design Studio. We also painted the inner door and the sunburst
Old Village Design Studio brought their special touch to this project, applying a beautiful finish to the oak paneling in a family room that amplifies the natural light using a wood wash that was then hand waxed with a custom tinted wax
