About

Welcome to our historical home, located on a quiet, tree-lined street of Fitler Square, Philadelphia. The first floor features an open layout with a living-room and a dining-room separated from the kitchen by a French verrière. The kitchen opens to a patio with outdoor furniture, a barbecue, a hammock and mature bamboo. A home cinema with projector and sound system is located in the basement, along with a sofa bed, a piano and a half-bath. The second floor hosts two child bedrooms, one in the front and one in the back, above the patio. The bedrooms share a large bathroom with two sinks, a shower, a bathtub, along with washer and dryer. The master bedroom and the office are located on the third floor. The house faces both East and West, which gives it great natural light in the summer, even on the ground floor - a truly unique feature for a Philadelphia row house. It has original hardwood floors throughout and central air. It is located within walking distance of the University of Pennsylvania, the Barnes Foundation, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The neighbourhood offers many grocery store options (Heirloom, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods), restaurants and cafés.
