Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a dive into the options available for a certain price point in various Philly neighborhoods. Today’s price point: $2,500 a month.
Art Museum (Studio, 1 bath)—A rare unit in the historic Bergdoll Mansion is looking for a renter who doesn’t mind living among stunning chandeliers, mahogany millwork, and two original fireplaces. The 1,800-square-foot apartment is in the mansion’s library, and is set up as a studio—plus, there are two private terraces and parking for an extra $200 a month. It probably doesn’t come as a surprise that pets aren’t welcome here.
Washington Square West (2 beds, 1 bath)—Here’s your chance to live on one of the most beautiful streets in Philly, Quince Street. The 1,200-square-foot rental is just as idyllic on the onside as it looks from the curb, and there’s a private backyard to boot. Did we mention there are two fireplaces? Plus, pets are welcome.
Rittenhouse (1 bed, 1 bath)—This spacious rental in a gorgeous Rittenhouse townhouse is up for grabs and features soaring ceilings, crown molding, and not one, but two fireplaces. It may have only one bedroom, but the main living area is big enough to have all of your friends over. Pets are considered on a case by case basis.
Northern Liberties (3 beds, 2.5 baths)—To really stretch your dollar, look to Northern Liberties, where there’s this 1,600-square-foot home for rent in a townhouse development. The multi-story rental has big windows, rooms, even its own private garage. The only catch: It’s looking for someone to sign an 18-month lease.
University City (2 beds, 2 baths)—There’s a unit available in one of the newest apartment towers in University City, Vue32. Pets are allowed in the 1,029-square-foot unit, which also has in-unit laundry and access to the shared roof deck on the 16-story tower’s top floor. Signing a 13-month lease comes with one month’s free rent, too.
