Hidden Treasure Hunt: A street, or a house?

The last time we ran across one of these, we thought we had stumbled across a historic street name that had been changed in the great 19th-century rationalization of Philadelphia street names. We were wrong, it turned out: “Lutton Place” was the somewhat grandiose name the owner gave to the early 19th-century Philadelphia row house he built for himself. So we’re not completely sure that this stone inscription refers to a historic street or a historic home. Maybe you can clarify things for us – and while you’re at it, tell us where this is located.
