Come stay in our beautifully remodeled modern sunlit space, you'll feel refreshed and vibrant after staying here! This is a stunning open-floorplan with south-facing windows, exposed brick wall, and original details from the 1920's architecture. Private washer/dryer. This is a 3rd-floor apartment. This is a private unit, and we professionally clean all the units between guests. All guests must wear masks in the shared hallway as are very COVID-conscious. (Check out our other listings too!)

The space
This is such a beautiful apartment. We are so proud of it and the design, and was just finished in February 2021. So, hot off the shelf!

ENTRY: You enter from the front porch, and go up the stairs 2 flights to get to your apt. When you enter from outside, you immediately notice the original wood steps and tile work we put in the entryway. The bedroom area is south-facing and there is a window in the wall between the bedroom and living area so the entire apt feels washed with light. The floors are white oak and were finished to give a sort of Scandinavian flair.

THE UNIT: The unit has stunning views overlooking the nearby blocks most of which contain all historical and beautiful homes. It is a few blocks from Baltimore Ave to the south, and on Spruce Street, so you won't be far from amazing restaurants, nightlife, and an overall sense of the West Philly community. During COVID, the local restaurants are being very careful and following protocols, and there are still many fun things to do.

LOCATION: UPenn campus is approximately a 10-minute walk (on nice tree-lined residential streets) or a 5-10 minute Uber ride. Center city is a 20-minute Uber ride. More details regarding proximity to public transport: We are close to the 34 Trolley that can take you to Center City in about 15 minutes. The trolley itself runs every 15 minutes. The trolley also stops at UPenn on its way. The L train is 12 blocks from us, and that can take you to northern liberties and fishtown easily. If you want to look at locations of these things on a map, just search 'Farragut and Spruce Streets', for the exact location of our house. Thank you!

PARKING: Parking on Spruce Street is unlimited for anyone, and on Farragut Street is limited to permit-parking (2 hour max). Parking can be slightly difficult sometimes, but usually you can find a spot on Spruce within a block of the building.

More about the unit:

KITCHEN: The kitchen has a dishwasher, fridge, large sink, and is sensibly appointed and fully stocked with cooking implements, modern appliances, and the beloved Nespresso machine (we also have a French press and plenty of pre-ground Starbucks coffee available if that is more up your alley). There is an island with the stove in it and two bar-height stools. The living area is part of the open-floor-plan and has a couch, table with 4 chairs, coffee table, and stool-height bar mini-table between the living and bedrooms. Great place to study, drink your coffee, and people watch. The couch is large enough to sleep on but is not a pull-out couch.

BEDROOM: The bedroom area is separated from the living area with a sliding barn door and a shade that can be pulled down between the rooms (note, this is not sound-proof between the living and bedrooms). There is a gigantic king-sized bed, and stand-alone closet for your clothes and belongings. There is a flatscreen TV with netflix/HBO/amazon prime that swivels from the wall to face any direction you want.

BATHROOM: There is a stand-up shower with marble walls, washer/dryer and large sink in the bathroom. It is sun-filled with a large window in it.

The apartment has brand-new heating and AC system for maximum comfort (minisplits), as well as access to wifi, and fresh, clean linens (with plenty more available if you need at any point).

This apartment is on the third floor of an amazing 3-unit building that also has a small psychotherapy clinic on the second floor (no in-person visits of patients during COVID though). This building is populated by some of West Philly's most interesting and friendly folks (seriously, if you get a chance to chat with any one of us about philosophy, politics, podcasts, or just the latest Netflix series, you will not regret it!).

We (Hannah and Nate) live in an apartment a few minutes away, so if you need anything we can get to you very quickly. We love hosting airbnb and can't wait to make you comfortable.
