Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a dive into the options available for a certain price point in various Philly neighborhoods. How many beds can you get in Rittenhouse versus South Kensington? Let’s find out! Today’s price point: $1,600 a month.
Rittenhouse Square (1 bed, 1 bath)—This Rittenhouse Square place is an old-school stunner, with a fireplace, hardwood floors, and a to-die-for stone facade. Plus, there’s a washer and dryer in unit (we all know how desirable that is for a place in Philly).
Point Breeze (3 bed, 1 bath)—Point Breeze is certainly an up-and-coming neighborhood (just ask any Philadelphian on the street) and part of that is because you can find homes like this. A newly renovated, three-bath place with space to stretch out. There are new hardwood floors downstairs, a sleek new kitchen, and a funky, painted stone wall in one of the upper bedrooms.
Queen Village (1 bed, 1 bath)—Of course Queen Village is a popular neighborhood, and you might not get the inexpensive three-bed homes you can get in Point Breeze, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a ton for your money here. This place has a granite kitchen island/bar, extremely sleek hardwood floors, a cool bedroom (just look at those closet drawers) and a very enviable location.
South Kensington (Studio, 1 bath)—After all the one and three bed places, it can be refreshing to se a good, old (authentic) loft, and South Kensington doesn’t disappoint. This converted factory home has hardwood floors, posts throughout, exposed brick, and a ton of space for a studio (1,700 square feet, to be exact). Plus, there’s a private patio.
Fishtown (1 bed, 1 bath)—Contemporary/industrial, and rustic styles often blend together in the lofts and apartments around Fishtown, and this place is no different. It’s got the sleek hardwood floors, exposed brick, and industrial-looking light fixtures that are so popular in contemporary-style apartments. But it also has the worn beams and stained glass of a rustic, old-school Philly place.
