What $2,600 rents in Philly right now

Lots of character and sleek new renovations

Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent or buy for a certain dollar amount in various Philly neighborhoods. This week, we’re checking out homes at or around $2,600 a month, and there’s a ton in terms of style: from the newly renovated homes, to the old school, character-filled ones.

JG Real Estate, via Craigslist

West Powelton (4 bed, 3.5 bath)—This completely renovated home at 4047 Green Street, offers the most space out of this list at 3,000 square feet. Also, thank to its new tune-up, it’s also got quartz counters, hardwood flooring throughout, and a sleek, all-white bathroom. There’s a totally finished basement, which could be converted into a 5th bedroom, and a roof deck with views of Center City. Plus, laundry in-unit.

Centra Associate, via Craigslist

Center City (3 bed, 2 bath)—This 1,800-square-foot spot is very centrally located at 15th and Naudain streets, and it has that classic old Philly rowhome charm: hardwood floors, decorative fireplaces, and plenty of exposed beam and brick. On top of that, there’s laundry in unit, and you can bring your pets.

via Craigslist

North Philly (6 bed, 3 bath)—Just a few blocks north of Temple University, at 2328 North Park Avenue, this apartment offers a somewhat shocking six bedrooms, plus a backyard and plenty of natural light. Bonus: It’s a quick walk from the Broad Street Line, and pets are allowed.

One Water Street, via Craigslist

Old City (2 bed, 2 bath)—At 1,000 square feet, this 250 North Columbus apartment offers a ton of room. But the biggest draw is likely not the space as much as the location. It’s right on the Delaware River, in the Water Street Apartments building, minutes from Race and Cherry street piers. Plus, there’s lots of hardwood flooring, nearly wall-to-wall windows in the living room, and laundry in unit.

via Craigslist

Northern Liberties (5 bed, 2.5 bath)—We’re ending the list this week with a home that is quite literally filled with character. With hardwood floors, ornate decorative fireplaces, and bright blue trim throughout, the home at 941 North 4th Street is definitely unique. On top of the decorative interior, there’s access to a roof, and laundry in the basement.
