Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a dive into the options available for a certain price point in various Philly neighborhoods. Is one person's loft another person’s townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: Around $1,600/month.
Queen Village (2 beds, 1.5 baths)—For $1,650 a month, you can live in this corner rowhome in Queen Village, which definitely boasts a lot of character, from the rainbow-striped walls to the sliding barn doors to the wood-burning fireplaces. There’s also a bi-level deck, and pets are welcome with additional fees.
Rittenhouse Square (1 bed, 1 bath)—This 520-square-foot apartment in Rittenhouse is up for grabs for $1,595 a month, but there’s a catch: You’d have to sign for a 24-month lease. Read on if you need some more convincing, because the apartment has been recently renovated, there’s in-unit laundry, and the location puts you in the heart of the neighborhood. Pets are welcome, too, with additional fees.
Francisville (2 beds, 1.5 baths)—Over in booming Francisville, $1,650 a month rents this recently built bi-level. Everything here is new, from the modern finishes to the appliances, and there is a Juliette balcony off the kitchen to mimic outdoor space. Sorry, but no pets.
Northern Liberties (2 beds, 1 bath)—Curious about that Trinity life? Here’s one that’s available in Northern Liberties. At 1,266 square feet, it’s definitely bigger than your typical Trinity, and it manages to have in-unit laundry, plus a front and backyard. Sorry, but no pets.
Manayunk (3 beds, 1 bath)—This price point goes farthest in Manayunk, where $1,595 rents you an entire home with a front porch, in-unit laundry, and a backyard. There are hardwood floors throughout and three good-sized bedrooms upstairs. The home is also a short walk to Main Street and the Schuylkill River.
