Northwest Philadelphia House Rental Photos and Description

This home blends a homey Northwest Philadelphia location with modern fixtures, natural woods and unexpected urban “pop” decor. The 2010 remodel of this 1912 Mt. Airy twin has been complemented with a West Coast inspired design aesthetic.

Master bedroom with King bed, 3 other bedrooms have a full bed, twin bunk beds, and a folding sleeper and air mattress. Plenty of room to spread out on 1st floor open floor plan with modern kitchen. Finished basement with 50" Plasma. A back deck, over looking a small yard with plenty of green around it and a huge grill to enjoy the summer.

All the modern amenities - wifi, HDTV, gourmet Kitchen. Very kid-friendly as well.


Kitchen/Dining: at far end of first floor open-floor plan, with easy back porch table access. Natural teak dining table makes for a dramatic eating experience. Kitchen has center granite island, with modern stainless steel finish appliances and a gas stove/microwave. The space also features a pocket-doored powder room.

Lounge/Living Area: a favorite comfy couch for afternoon reading or small gatherings.

Front Porch: Adirondack chairs and benches enable you to survey the neighborhood comings and goings while enjoying a cool drink.

Back Porch: Dining space for six people, with a large grill and easy kitchen (website hidden) ROOM (Finished Basement)

Wide open, flat-screen viewing area with modern but un-fussy couch seating. Stays naturally cool in summer -- a perfect movie watching space after a long day.


Master Bedroom/Bath: this whisper-blue walled open space is decorated with natural-finished woods. The California King size master bed has been in-law approved as “one of the most comfortable beds ever”! The attached master bath provides luxurious privacy from the rest of the house, with cool marble flooring and sink, a double vanity, and a dual-head shower. Walk-in closet.

Guest Bed/Office (and bath): This room has new modern-design futon that can be pulled from its couch setting with queen size air mattress optional. The room overlooks W. Sedgwick street and has lovely natural light. The adjoining bathroom has modern fixtures, marble flooring, a shower/bath and single sink.


Bedroom 1: Large room with full bed and a gorgeous view of Mt. Airy treetops (and sometimes even a glimpse of downtown). Adjoining white-tile bath and shower.

Bedroom 2: Bunk beds are perfect for two guests. Modern furnishings and ample closet space.

The Neighborhood

One of Philadelphia’s greenest neighborhoods, with two-block access to Hi-Point cafe, Blue Marble Books, Weaver’s Way organic food co-op, and Carpenter Woods! With walking access to the extensive urban forest trails of the Wissahickon, you can enjoy hiking, biking, birding and fishing throughout the summer.

For museum, restaurant and historic visits, the nearest train stop is a mere six block walk. You can be downtown in 20 minutes or less! In the neighborhood, ample street parking also enables you to travel conveniently by car. You’ll want to visit all the local shopping, dining and historic spots in the surrounding neighborhoods of Chestnut Hill and Manyunk as well. If you are bike-inclined, all of these excursions can be accomplished with easy two-wheel access to Forbidden Drive and Kelly Drive.

Because of conscious attention to construction to accommodates a wide spectrum of people and backgrounds, Mt. Airy was one of the earliest integrated neighborhoods in the U.S. It has retained this spirit of close-knit inclusiveness, with a flair for all things green. “Village” festivals abound throughout the summer, celebrating everything local and delicious. Indian food, pizza, an upcycled furniture store, acupuncture, yoga studios, and historic residences are all within a few walking blocks.
