Philadelphia townhome description

Located within walking distance to the renowned shops, and restaurants of Main Street Manayunk, the 'Home with a View' is close to Philadelphia's many historical sites, major universities, and museums. The Liberty Bell and Valley Forge are equally accessible. Major transportation venues such as bus, rail, and highway, are easily reached.
Make use of the professionally designed kitchen or use the grill and relax on the deck. Breakfast is especially nice outside in the morning sun. Getting supplies is easy as a full size supermarket is about a 5 minute walk or one minute by car.
Nearby Main Street features art festivals and bike races as well as great restaurants and shopping. Fireworks on the Fourth of July and New Year’s Day are visible from the deck or upstairs bedroom. On a clear day one can see the RCA Tower in New Jersey. Situated at the peak of Manayunk, the Ben Franklin Bridge and views of the Philadelphia Skyline are almost always visible.
The three bedrooms contain a comfortable queen size sleigh bed, a full size guest bed, and a thick futon which provides a restful sleep for two full size adults.
If it’s a cheesesteak you want, nearby Dalessandro’s is considered one of the best in the city. Chubby’s across the street from Dalessandro’s, made the cover of Philadelphia Magazine rated as the best chicken- cheesesteak in the city.
Come and enjoy your stay and be near everything Philadelphia has to offer.

                      About: We hope you enjoy our warm and friendly home which we had lived in for over 15 years. We chose this house because of location. It is close to everything we enjoy about Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey. A trip to center-city to attend the Philadelphia Orchestra, Ballet or Theater takes 15-20 minutes. It's the same distance to the convention center and the historical sights. Mass transit is just steps away from the front door. Great shops and restaurants are within walking distance. What many people don't know is that Philadelphia is home to the nation's largest park: Fairmount Park. A walk down nearby Forbidden Drive with a stop at the Valley Green is simply romantic. We love Philly and everything it has to offer, but we also enjoy the nearby Pocono Mountains (where I worked as a whitewater rafting guide, we enjoyed the fall foliage tours, and occasionally ski trip. The Atlantic City expressway will take you to the Jersey Shore in about the same amount of time. So come and enjoy our city, the history, the mountains, the shore and everything in between.

                      Why Philadelphia:
                      Philadelphia is a vibrant and historic city. From our home with a view one can easily visit the world renowned Philadelphia Museum of Art and run up the 'Rocky' steps. Equally close is the Franklin Institute and the Academy of Natural Sciences/Natural History. The nation's first zoo and foremost primate center is just as accessible. Many of these places are visible looking out the back window. or standing on the deck. Philadelphia has many 'Bring Your Own Bottle' Restaurants which makes dining out pleasurable and affordable. Call me for some of my favorites.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                      A well appointed kitchen and deck make dining in or entertaining pleasurable. From the deck one can see the Philadelphia skyline including the Ben Franklin Bridge. Manyaunk has many special events and the home is located 1/2 block from the most exciting turn in the Manayunk BIke Race, featuring world class racers. The Eco-Arts festival in the fall and the Arts festival in the Spring attract upwards of 100,000 to Manayunk. 'Home with a View' is located on a quiet street in the safest neighborhood in the tri-state area. With its great restaurants, shopping, and its proximity to Center-City and multiple transportation venues, the Manayunk Neighborhood is a great place to stay when visiting Philadelphia.
