Big, bright Philadelphia row home and urban oasis with gorgeous roof deck, 4 bedrooms, and 2 full baths (2,000+ sq/ft). Set on a quiet, tree-lined block steps away from the Italian Market and walking distance to charming Queen Village, Society Hill, East Passyunk and Old City neighborhoods (including a very historic 20-minute ramble up to Independence Hall).

The space

Because this classic brick townhouse is a bit wider and deeper than most, it offers significantly more light and space than other neighborhood homes. The downstairs living spaces are open all the way through, with a wide living room, separate dining area and spacious, recently remodeled kitchen. Out back is a small patio with two trees, table and chairs, a fire pit, charcoal grill and a mosaic by famed local artist, Isaiah Zagar!

The second floor includes a large, sunny bedroom with high ceilings and a queen bed, plus a smaller bedroom with a crib/bed (best for a baby or young child, although floor sleeping is an option for an older child or adult). Also on the second floor: a full bathroom with tub and shower, plus a hallway sitting room great for reading or an extra play space for small children.

The third floor has a sunny study with a single daybed and a double (full) futon. Down the hall is another, smaller bedroom with a double (full) bed. This floor also features a spacious landing and another bathroom with shower.

From April-October the roof deck becomes the "fourth floor" and a unique urban oasis. Planted with climbing vines, flowers, fruits and vegetables, and including two levels, a pergola, two different dining tables (one an 8-foot cedar picnic table), two sitting hammocks, a gas grill, a water table and toys for the kids, you can spend hours relaxing above it all with a view of the nearby city skyline, or just pop out with your morning cup of coffee.

The house is fully baby-proofed, with optional stairway gates at no additional charge. We can also provide additional kid-friendly amenities (i.e. high chair) upon request, along with a selection of toys to keep younger children happy during your stay.

Both the house and the neighborhood are great, very kid friendly - but can fit as well non family trips. Super roof top terrace with astonishing view on the city. We loved our stay, thanks Ethan!

Can't best the location of this place. Quick uber/lyft to all the main touristy things. Plenty of bars and food near bar. The house also features an awesome roof deck that is really enjoyable to spend mornings and evenings on. Would definitely recommend to a group coming into town for a trip.

Fantastic place to stay. Can't beat the location, close to the magic gardens, Franklin institute, please touch museum and great eateries. This space had ample room for our pack of 4 adults and one toddler, but can comfortably house more. The roof deck is amazing.
