The space
Welcome to our home! It is the perfect place to enjoy life's important moments with family and friends. Built in the late 1800s originally as a private residence, the house has been meticulously restored and renovated to maintain its historic charm. It sits on a beautifully landscaped 2.2 acres with nearly year-round flowers and trees. There is a massive covered front porch. The house is in a safe neighborhood with walkable food markets, public transportation, and nearby restaurants.

The house has two floors. When you first walk in, you are in the expansive entryway. The first floor has a large living room, billiards room, and adjacent sitting room, dining room (sits up to 10 guests), two bathrooms, a renovated kitchen with breakfast nook and separate sitting room, and a gym with treadmill and elliptical.

A large, sweeping staircase with 2 story stained glass window brings you to the second floor to the 6 spacious bedrooms, each with their own attached full bathroom. The house sleeps 14 people in the 3 CA king beds, 3 queen beds, and 1 double bed. It can accommodate other people on a futon mattress or air mattresses. Maximum number of overnight guests is 16 persons.

The outside of the house has a wrap around porch, walking path to view the landscaped grounds with year-round blooming flowers, and a private courtyard with a working pond that emits a soothing waterfall. Friendly fish and lotus flowers live in the pond. The courtyard has a BBQ and an outdoor dining table and chairs for 6. This courtyard area is under construction currently (March 2021) but is still accessible.

Please note that the property has 3 buildings. The Airbnb rental has a full-time apt on the third floor and apts in the rear of the 10,000 square foot building. The other buildings also house full-time apartment tenants. The apartments have their own driveway, parking and entrances.

The AirBnB rental is for your exclusive use. FYI, when not rented as an Airbnb the house is lived in full-time by the owner.

There is parking in the front driveway available for guest vehicles as well as free parking on the street in front of the house. The house is fully wheel chair accessible with an elevator when requested. This is a non-smoking and no pets property. Maximum number of overnight guests is 16 persons.

Located in the historic Germantown neighborhood near Revolutionary War battle sites; where the first-ever American protest against slavery was written; and where one of the few remaining houses on the Underground Railroad still stands.
The property is a 1/2 mile walk to the Wissahickon Creek Park where you can walk, run or bike on the beautiful nature trails.
An excellent produce market is 2 blocks away, the food co-op is 1 mile away, and there are also several grocery stores, restaurants, and bars with 2 blocks in Manayunk, Mount Airy, and Chestnut Hill neighborhoods.

An avid traveler who has been to 6 continents and 75+ countries. I love mountain biking and hiking in the Wissahickon Creek State Park a few blocks from the property, spending time in the yard or garden, and relaxing by the pond watching the fish. I enjoy spending time with friends and family, eating out at restaurants, going to the theatre, yoga, and trying new things.
