Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a look into what a certain price point rents in various neighborhoods throughout Philly. For this week’s special edition, we’re exploring rentals that offer outdoor space (because, summer!). Is another person’s townhouse another’s studio? Let’s find out! This week’s price point: $1,800 a month.
Northern Liberties (2 beds, 1 bath)—In Northern Liberties, $1,850 a month rents you this 900-square-foot apartment that’s been recently renovated. Off the spacious living room—beware of those slanted ceilings—is the unit’s small, but private roof deck, which has views of the city. Pets are welcome with a non-refundable deposit, and laundry is shared.
Kensington (2 beds, 1 bath)—For a slightly bigger space, you don’t have to look very far. In Kensington, this two-bedroom rowhome is up for grabs after undergoing a renovation. In addition to a large deck upstairs, there’s a fireplace in the main living area and in-unit laundry.
Rittenhouse (1 bed, 1 bath)—No word on the square footage of this one-bedroom apartment at 2040 Market, but at least there’s access to a pretty big community roof deck. There’s also in-unit laundry and a fitness center. Both cats and small dogs are welcome.
Queen Village (2 beds, 1 bath)—Over in Queen Village you’ll find this adorable Trinity up for rent in a gated community. It’s been expanded, so there’s an extra half-bath in the 1,052-square-foot corner home. When tiny living starts to take its toll, escape to the community patio with a grill.
Dickinson Narrows (2 beds, 1 bath)—Not far from the Queen Village Trinity is this home right on Dickinson Square Park. So not only does the 1,100-square-foot rental have a private back patio, but it has direct access to public green space. Bonus: The patio has already been set up for a small urban garden.
