This house is located less than 2 blocks from the vibrant commercial corridor of East Passyunk Ave. in South Philadelphia. Only 2 subway stops to Center City or sports stadiums, and convenient to all area attractions.
Enter this South Philadelphia row home to a large and open living and dining room. Architectural features like hardwood floors, exposed beams, a "window" of exposed brick, and enclosed staircase blend a contemporary aesthetic with the 100+ year history of the home.
The living room features ample seating for relaxing and socializing. Read a book, watch a movie, or enjoy one of the board or card games provided for your enjoyment. The 40" television has all the major broadcast networks and a DVD player. There is also a Chromecast streaming device hooked up which can stream video from many sources like Netflix, Hulu, HBO Go, You Tube and others.
The dining area features a table with seating for up to six. The "bar" features any type of glassware you may require as well as cocktail making tools. Just bring along a bottle of your favorite wine or spirit (or take a day trip to the great wineries in nearby Chester County).
Additional glassware, flatware, and silverware are housed in the full kitchen which also includes a microwave and a dishwasher. There is an electric kettle and coffee maker and the house is stocked with coffee and a selection of tea.
During the warmer months, continue through the kitchen to the lighted back patio with a table and seating for outdoor meals cooked on the propane grill. Herbs and flowers grow in the large built in planter in the spring and summer.
Upstairs you will find the large master bedroom, with queen bed and huge wardrobe with lots of space for clothes. The second, smaller bedroom houses a full sized bed and large chest of drawers.
The bathroom with full sized tub is also located on the second floor. The bathroom is always well stocked with all the necessities - soap, shampoo, toilet paper, and lots of towels.
The third bedroom has been converted into an office and exercise room. There is a futon that can accommodate an additional guest, or two children. There is a large desk if you need a space to work while visiting Philly. There is also an elliptical machine for your use, and some small weights. The 22" TV is mounted to the wall in front of the elliptical and also is equipped with a Chromecast for video streaming.
Guests have access to everything on the main floors of the house as described above, including a small wood-decked backyard. There are many conveniences and amenities throughout the home like CDs, DVDs, games, and books.
The unfinished basement is used for storage and is locked and off-limits to guests.
Interaction with guests
I will most likely be out of town while you are here. The door is equipped with a keypad lock so all you will need is a code to access.
I can be reached by phone or email if you have any questions, concerns, or just need a recommendation for something to do. A friend who manages the house while I am away lives just a few blocks away and is also available if anything comes up during your stay.
