About this listing
Nicely furnished sublet of a traditional Philadelphia row home on a quiet tree-lined street in the heart of the Art Museum area. The two-story house is freshly painted and has 2 bedrooms: the 1st has a queen-sized bed and the 2nd has a twin sized bed with pull-out trundle. There is also 1 bath, central A/C, wireless internet, washer/dryer, hardwood floors in large living/dining room, TV with Netflix and a cozy patio. Kitchen with half-refrigerator. Full freezer in basement. Eclectic decorations include artwork by friends and neighbors as well as textiles from my travels.
Great location: 2 blocks from Philadelphia Museum of Art and short walk to Schuylkill River bike/run path, Boathouse Row, Fairmount Park, Ben Franklin Parkway, Whole Foods, Rodin Museum, The Barnes Foundation and Center City business district. Plenty of restaurants, coffee shops and playgrounds nearby, grocery store two blocks away. Conveniently located to the the 7, 33 and 48 Septa buses. Friendly, residential neighborhood.
Street parking is available and easy to find during the day and on weekends. It can take awhile to find a street parking space after 6PM when people return home from work. Public transportation is easy to use and there is a parking lot ($16/day) about 3 blocks away. Folks over 65 can drive free on buses and $.80 on trains anywhere on SEPTA.
