Restored Philly Row Home with Roof Deck & Edible Garden in Great Location!

**Whole house available for rent from July 15, 2019 through August 1, 2019. WILL GIVE SIGNIFICANT DISCOUNT IF YOU STAY FOR THAT FULL PERIOD!!! At other times, third floor bedroom/bathroom/office available for share (for lesser price)***


This is the perfect home for a family who wishes to experience all that Philadelphia has to offer, while remaining within 2 hours train ride of both New York City and Washington DC.

We renovated this home ourselves in 2012, seeking to retain as much of its 100 year old character as possible. With hard wood floors throughout, the first floor has a very large kitchen, dining room, living room and half bathroom. The second floor has three separate bedrooms and a full bath. The third floor has another bedroom, an office, and another full bath. The roofdeck has closeup views of the Philadelphia skyline. The backyard contains a small amphitheater with perimeter edible perennial garden with grapes, blackberries, strawberries, and a wide range of herbs. The basement is has washer, dryer, and kids playroom.

We are one half block from the nicest park in South Philadelphia (Columbus Square), two blocks from the Elsworth-Federal subway station (20 minutes to University City and to 30th street station), a 5 minute walk from all of the restaurants, ice cream stores, and other attractions on East Passyunk Avenue, and a 10 minute walk from the Italian Market. Within three blocks, you'll find a CVS, Acme supermarket, hardware store, dry cleaners, etc... All of Philadelphia's historic attractions are easily accessed on foot, bike, or by subway.

Our block is very safe, quiet, and tree-lined, and has a small bakery, fish monger, and convenience store. Around the corner is a pizzeria, breakfast spot, and Italian restaurant with opera singers for wait staff.

About Me
My wife was born in Barbados, and I have dual US and Italian citizenship. We both spent most of our formative years in the New York Metropolitan area, but have lived in Philadelphia since I joined the faculty of the Department of Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering at Drexel University in 2007. At Drexel, I direct the Sustainable Water Resource Engineering lab where I study urban sustainability, urban ecosystems, and urban greening initiatives. I have my own private practice based in New York City, through which I also work in these same areas as a practitioner. My wife is trained in journalism, but has worked extensively in the non-profit sector with experience in both social and environmental fields. My work has taken me in recent years to places like Haiti, Ethiopia, and Italy. With our three kids, my wife and I also enjoy travel for pleasure. Our travel goal is to see new places, and really get to know the people of the place, by staying (mostly) away from the touristy spots and instead immersing ourselves in the local culture. We enjoy historically, culturally, naturally rich and vibrant places.

Wonderful apartment, extremely convenient to NYC. Franco is a great host. Affordable and well-sized. Highly recommend. Excellent Chiara 8/24/2018 1:13:00 PM
I had only good experiences with this wonderful flat. It is 30 min. from Port Authority, and buses are running all night long. It has an incredible view on Manhattan's skyline, the Empire State Building and even the One World Trade Center. As the living room opens to one of the two sleeping rooms, it makes the whole apartment very spacious and you have a lot of sun from three sides. We loved the area with all its hispanic restaurants, fresh fruits and vegetables. Franco was a perfect landlord; he was attentive to all my queries (from a broken window to recommendations for restaurants) thus he made our 6-months stay really enjoyable. I also felt very safe in the building; it has a very reliable super. Therefore: I would always come back here! Excellent Lara 8/26/2016 12:37:00 PM
