I have been in countless number of Philadelphia condominiums over the years, and I would have to say that a few of the coolest things I have seen in these homes, are some very cool, almost James Bond like features to Center City condos.
1) The hidden wall safe. Cliché in nature, and a bit trite, but very cool. I have even seen wall outlets that are little mini safes. Very discreet.
2) Fingerprint door locks. Simple to install, and very hip, these locks open only when you press your thumb over the scanner, and the scanner recognizes your thumb as belonging to you. Hopefully.
3) The secret room hidden behind a door that swings on a piano hinge. I once saw this in a condo in Queen Village years ago, and it about knocked my socks off. Like a kid’s dream come true….
Just thought I would share with you a few things I have seen in this town that were a bit on the unusual side of things…..and very sure to scratch the itch of every spy novel fan here in town…..
