University City (1 bed, 1 bath)—This apartment in the Garden Court Plaza at 47th and Pine features hardwood floors and tons of light as well as an on-site parking garage, laundry, and a rooftop garden.
Fitler Square (2 bed, 1.5 bath)—All throughout Philly, old stone churches that have been converted into apartments have become increasingly popular over the past few years for their funky architectural details. This one on Fitzwater Street in Fitler Square doesn’t disappoint. It has vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, and stained glass from the original church windows. It’s part of the Sanctuary Lofts apartment building.
Rittenhouse Square—Any Philadelphian knows, it’s hard to find a place in Rittenhouse Square for cheap, but this two-bed apartment gets you pretty close to that goal. It’s got 787 square feet of space, it’s furnished, and you get free laundry in the building. Plus, on Locust and 17th, you’re steps away from the iconic park.
Art Museum (2 bed, 1.5 bath)—There are some interesting apartments tucked back in the streets off the Parkway, like this two-bed place that (surprisingly) doesn’t sacrifice space for its location. It’s almost 1,100 square feet and has recent renovations as well as a couple of interesting design elements (note the french doors to the outside, the unique kitchen island, and a bathroom barn door).
Old City (2 bed, 2 bath)—Old City and its surrounding neighborhoods generally offer the most in the way of industrial-style homes. This loft-style apartment lives up to that reputation. It’s got high, wood ceilings, a fireplace, and large windows. There’s a gated courtyard outside and a roof deck, plus, as the advertisement says in loud letters, it’s pet-friendly.
