Welcome to our charming Philadelphia rowhome located in Cedar Park/Cobbs Creek neighborhood of West Philadelphia. It is a block from the 34 trolley and a 15 minute walk to the 52nd street EL (metro) stop. 10 minute walk to Mariposa Food Co-op/Dock Street Pizza & Brewery, Satellite Cafe, etc. The living, dining and kitchen spaces are bright and open-concept, kitchen includes double oven, gas range, farm sink and lots of equipment (we are total cooking addicts!) as well as a half bath/powder room. Upstairs are three bedrooms--one with a queen bed, one a queen futon/den, and one a spacious office with desk and many shelves of books (also book addicts!) as well as a full bath with upgraded finishes. I am a novelist and my partner is a designer so our house has great creative energy and I welcome you to sit at my desk where I write each day. UPenn and Drexel are a twenty minute ride on the 34 trolley, Temple is 45 mins by public transport, and the colleges of the main line (Haverford, Bryn Mawr, Swarthmore) are 15-25 mins by car. West Philly is greener and quieter than center city, home to many cool alternative families and activist culture, sort of the Brooklyn rather than the Manhattan of Philadelphia. We are a 7 minute drive to historic garden and park Bartram's Garden that is super lovely.
