A piece of presidential history in Philadelphia was taken off the market last week when an undisclosed buyer purchased the historic James and Dolley Madison home in Society Hill.
Listed in May for $3.2 million, the colonial style home from the Federal Period sold on August 3 for $2.9 million, though Redfin still gives it an estimated value of $3.04 million.
The 3-story home has been fully modernized since "The Federalist Papers" co-author took up residence there. While the historic architecture has been preserved, shiny new appliances and a New Orleans-style back porch now give the property more of a contemporary appeal. Inside, there are four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and a total of 3,145 square feet.
