Newly and beautifully renovated 4 bed / 2.5 bath in the Bella Vista neighborhood, with easy walking and public transport.
One block from the famous Di Bruno’s and Claudio’s food shops and the rest of the open-air Italian Market, surrounded by numerous parks and some of Philly’s best restaurants, and an easy walk to supermarkets, including Whole Foods. Streets are tree-lined and quiet for a city: inside the house, you hear no street noise unless the windows are open. The commute to Penn, Drexel, Temple, the Library Company, and other area universities and institutions is easy by public transportation or by car, or by bike which you'd be welcome to borrow.
This three-story house was completely renovated prior to our purchase, and we have made numerous improvements. The top floor has a very large master bedroom with tons of natural light and a walk-in closet; the master bath with two sinks and a stone-lined shower; down the hall is our toddler's bedroom as well as a laundry closet. The middle floor has a bedroom used as an office (flooded with natural light); a family room with HDTV; a guest bath with extra-deep soaker tub; and a guest bedroom looking onto the neighborhood. The open-plan ground floor runs straight through the full depth of the house, with living room and dining areas and a large, well-designed kitchen with new appliances. Half bath on the first floor. Off the kitchen is a brick patio, shaded by trees and perfect for eating outside. The house has central A/C, radiator heat, WiFi, and hardwood floors throughout.
We won't be in town during your stay but a friend will be available in case of need, and we'll always be contactable via email or phone.
No smoking, no pets.
