Rent My Philadelphia Garden Apartment

124_2432

FIRST DIBS, DEAR READERS. This 1-bedroom garden apartment, available for rent as of January 1, has not even made it to Craigslist yet. It’s in one of my two Philadelphia buildings — the one in Queen Village, which is probably the best neighborhood in the city after Rittenhouse Square and Society Hill.

It’s convenient to Center City and the bars, stores, and restaurants of South Street, yet far enough away to be quiet and peaceful.

The building, on a lovely residential street, dates from 1810. There’s a private entrance (red door on left, top) and a 300-square-foot outdoor space that’s not exactly a garden — a concrete patio, more like (think containers!)

The apartment was totally renovated in 2006. It has central air, a washer-dryer, and a walk-in closet, rarities for those of us used to New York City apartment living.

The bedroom, below, is huge, with two windows and a French door leading to the garden.

    Nice space! A modern reno in a classic building. I know the neighborhood. Great diversity of buildings, old alley-ways, hip restaurants nearby as well.

  2. I love this house! Does it ever come up for rent anymore?

    hi Jessica, I signed a one-year lease with a new tenant last December, so check back with me next fall if you’re in need of an apartment.
