Mature Grad student looking for a pet friendly 2 bedroom+ rental

Tenant Searching for a Place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States

Listing #145057

Looking for an Entire Home | Open to House Sitting
Monthly Budget: Maximum USD $3700
Last Updated 43 days ago


My husband and I are in our 50's and I am taking a pause in my incredibly successful career to go back to graduate school at the University of Pennsylvania in the Fall of 2021. I will be pursuing an MS in Education in Higher Education in their Graduate School of Education program. We currently live in Seattle in a beautiful home that my husband has painstakingly remodeled over the 20+ years we have owned our home. (we will probably be renting it if you are looking to spend some time in Seattle!) We are quiet, mature people and will be respectful of your home and furnishings. We are looking for a comforable place to call home where we can walk to cafes nearby (we're from Seattle, so we love our coffee!), restaurants and shops. We have a beautiful 5 year old German Shorthaired Pointer who is well trained. We would like to be somewhere that is fairly walkable for her as well. My husband will be working remotely, so will be at the house most of the time while I'm on campus. We are bring our car with us, but are ok parking it at a nearby garage, as we don't anticipate needing it every day. As for our dates, we do not need a place past the end of May, 2022. Our daughter will be graduating from the University of Washington in June, 2022 so we will want to be back in Seattle in time to celebrate her accomplishments!
