We love living in our townhouse in the center of Philadelphia, and hope you’ll enjoy your stay as much! It’s a peaceful retreat on a quiet walkway, but right in the heart of the city. Parking available.
The house is a classic Philly red brick, four story, townhouse in a highly sought-after quiet walkway right in the center of downtown Philadelphia. You'll be surprised how peaceful the house is, despite being just steps from all the city has to offer. A prime location for walking to the major tourist sights and museums, the conference center, Jefferson University, and the financial district if on a business trip. as well as many amazing restaurants (2 top-rated restaurants are only 1/2 block from the house!). Several transit options mean that the University of Pennsylvania and sports stadia/concert venues are within easy reach. Amenities such as Wholefoods, and Pennsylvania Hospital, are 3-4 blocks away.
The house accommodates up to 4 guests very comfortably in an eclectic, cozy design. From the front door foyer there's a short staircase down to a fully equipped kitchen (cooker, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, breakfast bar), adjoining the dining room (with piano). The dining table is set up to seat 6 comfortably. There's also a ½ bath on that floor, a coat closet, and a utility room with a washer and dryer for your use, storage for cleaning supplies, dyson, plus a utility sink. A short staircase up brings you to the first floor, which is devoted to the living room with access to the furnished patio, and a balcony that overlooks the dining room below. There you'll find a comfy sofa and air chairs, plus a TV and bookcase to help you unwind! There is artwork throughout the house, including several originals from renowned British watercolorists that I've collected over the years.
The two guest bedrooms are on the top floor, along with a full bathroom. The front bedroom overlooks the walkway and can sleep up to two, in a comfortable double bed complete with crisp cotton sheets and a choice of pillows. It also contains a built-in wardrobe for hanging clothes with room for suitcase storage, a chest of drawers, and extra linens are stored on built-in shelves.
The second bedroom contains a queen-size bed plus a twin/day-bed, and so can sleep up to 3 people. Again, both beds are outfitted with comfortable mattresses, crisp cotton sheets, and duvets. There is also a built-in closet with a full-length mirror, plus the iron and ironing board and a clothes steamer, and a book case for your perusal. The window overlooks the patio, but is usually amass with magnolia blossoms in spring or green leaves in summer and fall.
The top floor full bathroom was completely remodeled very recently, including addition of a skylight to provide a ton of natural light, bright glass tiling, and under-floor heating. It boasts a large walk-in shower, large vessel sink, toilet, sliding barn door to save on space, extraction fan, and all bathroom supplies you might need.
We’ll provide bedding and towels, bathroom supplies, 2 hairdryers, and kitchen basics (tea, coffee, spices, and other cooking odds and ends; Pots and pans, crockery, glasses, cutlery, kitchen and table linens, cleaning supplies). Wifi and cable TV. The AC and heating system are brand new (so are quiet and efficient!), and one fantastic feature is a remote control located on the top floor to make sure you can keep bedrooms at your desired sleeping temperature. We also have a home security system.
Plus, we have a dedicated parking spot in a gated parking lot a block away, if needed. While you access the house from the walkway, a residents' temporary parking spot for unloading is available within a few yards of the front door.
You’ll have the whole house to yourselves.
