We've called this home the House of Joy. It is a mansion built at the end of the Edwardian Age in the ornate Queen Anne style. Here is the listing for its beautiful third floor, which we have called The Bluebell.

The Bluebell features two bedrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, private bathroom and cozy living room.

The home has a large porch, stained-glass windows, original polished wooden floors and access to a secret park called The Bird Sanctuary from the back yard. :)

The space
Our newly renovated home, playfully nicknamed the “House of Joy”, has 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 kitchens and 2 living / dining room areas, in addition to a spacious porch and a backyard. The home is huge, a kind of mansion. We rent it out as a single unit or per floor, so it can be convenient and affordable to both larger and smaller parties.

We like naming things, and have named the first and second floors of the home, “The Iris at the House of Joy”, due to the purple and yellow colors of the bedrooms. The Iris has three large bedrooms, with a colorful private bathroom of Moroccan tile. This floor accommodates up to 7 friends or family members who have exclusive access to the pretty kitchen and spacious dining / living room.

The third floor has been named “The Bluebell at the House of Joy”. It owes its name to the cheerful blues and yellows of its rooms. It features two large bedrooms and a pretty private blue and yellow bathroom. This floor also has a kitchen / dining room area and a cozy living room space, accommodating up to four friends or family members who will have the entire space to themselves.

Whether you come stay with us at The Iris, The Bluebell, or the entire House of Joy, we’re sure you will enjoy the beauty, privacy, comfort and history of this beautiful home!

Location

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States

West Philadelphia is an absolutely enchanting neighborhood. It is a village within a small town masquerading as a metropolis. Just near the house, you will find an Argentinian coffee shop, an exquisite Lebanese restaurant and cafe, a gem of Yemeni cuisine, Ethiopian treats and Fiume, an unmarked pre-prohibition era speakeasy, where the outstanding bluegrass and gypsy jazz make the walls shake and the glasses rattle.
