*Selected one of Timeout's 20 coolest Airbnb's in Philly*
Benjamin Franklin's architect designed this home in historic Queen Village in Philadelphia. At least it feels that way. With a near-perfect walk-score of 98, our home combines old world Philadelphia charm with practical, modern living.
This 3BR (3rd bedroom includes a desk and could act as an office) puts you within walking distance of red-hot South St., 100s of cafes & bars, Penn's landing, historic old city & Independence Hall and provides easy access to the highway and airport.
The first floor consists of a wide living room with a decorative fireplace and built-ins, both original and newly hand-crafted, and a rear den with another decorative fireplace which could also be used as an office or guest bedroom.
Exit through this room out to a brick rear garden patio, ideal for sipping your morning coffee.
The lower level includes a full kitchen with updated appliances, brick-floored breakfast/dining room with built-ins, powder room and laundry.
The second level includes a front master bedroom with wide-plank floors, high-ceilings, 2 closets and decorative fireplace. Full bathroom with stall shower, red clawfoot tub and large vanity is also included on the second floor.
The third floor consists of a bedroom with exposed brick and access to a large, south-facing roof deck.
Other amenities include: central air, high-ceilings, hardwood floors, and large bright windows throughout.
Other things to note: The home is a historic trinity, which means in contains three sets of spiral staircases. Please use with care. These may present some difficulty for children and guests that are less mobile.
