This fieldstone row house was built in 1847 by Phoenix Iron Works for its employees. It stands across the street from an historic foundry (recently converted into a posh events space) in the heart of the business district. You can walk to over 20 restaurants, cafes and pubs. The local farmers market is held Saturday mornings at the other end of my block. Even with all this going on nearby, Nailers Row is surprisingly quiet. Last but not least, there's room for 2 cars at the back of the garden.

The space

The 'pie winder' stairs are a little tricky. If you have mobility issues this may not be the place for you. The bed on the 3rd floor is slightly smaller than a queen but it sleeps two comfortably.

Guest access

The entire house is at your disposal. The back porch faces an intimate garden filled with southern light. There are laundry facilities, along with a powder room of sorts in the basement. Just watch your head going down the basement stairs!

Interaction with guests

I am at the house several time a week doing the following: mowing the lawn and gardening, replenishing the well water in the fridge, watering houseplants, and checking my mailbox. I keep some tools in the basement that I occasionally have to access. (There is a door to the basement directly from the front of the house, so no need to enter any other floor.)
I will not come to the house before 9 AM or after 5 PM. If you need total privacy during that time, please let me know.

Other things to note

No need to miss your workouts. There is a Planet Fitness (8 minutes drive away), a YMCA (8 minutes drive away) and an LA Fitness (12 minutes drive away).

Charles' place was a great find! It is immaculate and stylish. The location is superb! Walking distance to many restaurants and shops. We did not meet him in person but he was available through email anytime. We recommend this place without reservation and would definitely come back!! Thank you Charles!

This is seriously the best place you can stay in Phoenixville. It is perfectly situated right in the middle of town but is still in a hidden and quiet area. There is no noise or traffic of the Main Street but you can walk right there in less then two minutes. The house itself has a great historic feel with nice modern upgrades. Charles keeps it spotless! And on a side note the paintings when you walk in were all made by him as well as some of the murals around town. This man is a terrific artist! I’d highly recommend a stay at this place.

One of my favorite Airbnb experiences to date.... Charles was a terrific host and the house is fantastic! Felt like being right at home (if only our home were cleaner and more artfully decorated !!). And the location is perfect. We biked in from Philadelphia and stowed our bikes in the basement, and the house was a perfect home base from which to explore all the great food and drink option in Phoenixville. Pro tip: get take out from Guatemalan Kitchen and enjoy their fantastic freshly made tortillas with a cocktail at Bluebird.

Charles was a fantastic host and his home is gorgeous. Spotless, comfortable, and perfectly located, this is the first airbnb that my husband I would return to just for the pleasure of spending the weekend there. The little touches made a big difference - coffee, fresh milk, water from a country well. And did I mention that the home is spotless? We could not have been happier. Thank you Charles!

A very nice, cozy spot close to all the action in Phoenixville. Great kitchen, cozy living room and bedrooms. Not ideal if you have mobility issues as the spiral stairs are steep, but a lovely decorated home.

Charles is a lovely host. The townhouse is spotless. It's walking distance to shops and restaurants. Can't wait to go back.

I'm an artist/muralist. I enjoy most of the usual stuff; travel, good food, sleep, exercise, and unstinting praise. I don't enjoy; traffic, debt, cluelessness (especially my own).
