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 by Rittenhouse Square versus Kensington? Let’s find out! Today’s price point: $1,650 a month.
Brewerytown (3 bed, 1 bath)—With three bedrooms, a private patio and a sizable living area, this Brewerytown home is one of the most spacious on this list. It also offers some interesting design elements, like an exposed wood ceiling and a brick wall in the living room. Plus, there’s laundry in unit.
Fairmount (2 bed, 1 bath)—Just down from Brewerytown, in Fairmount, this two-bed apartment is available for rent, offering 1,400 square feet of space, hardwood floors, 12-foot ceilings and several interesting decorative elements. There’s a pair of columns in the living area, and built-in shelves.
Rittenhouse (1 bed, 1 bath)—On 21st and Walnut, this place is minutes from Rittenhouse Square. It has a ton of draws, like bright lighting, sleek, white walls, hardwood floors, and 600 square feet of space. Also, there’s a gym in the apartment and you can bring your pets along.
Old Kensington (3 bed, 2 bath)—You’re likely to get the most space for your money in Old Kensington, where this newly renovated apartment offers three beds and two baths. It doesn’t skimp on style, either. There’s a tile kitchen backsplash, quartz countertops, laundry in unit, and tile floors in the bathroom.
Washington Square (1 bed, 1 bath)—Like the apartment right off Rittenhouse Square, this one-bed’s price tag is likely determined by its location; seconds from Franklin Square and the most historic sights in Philly. But there are a number of interesting draws about the apartment’s interior, too, like midcentury-style wood paneling, a kitchen behind double doors, and exposed brick. Plus, that old Philly brick facade is hard to beat.
