My grandfather purchased this building in 1930 using it as his furniture store. My father developed the building into 20 offices and 16 condos selling off several while keeping this penthouse unit for himself.

PERFECT LOCATION, CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE!

  • 4 out of 5
We really loved being in the heart of everything. We got to bring our kid, and our friend got to bring his dog which made it super easy and fun to take a quick weekend get away from Brooklyn. The owners were really nice and helpful (when we locked ourselves out with our son's coat still inside!), and we definitely plan on coming back. The only thing I would note is that this really is A LOFT. In the description they mention a wall being put up to make a separate room but we were surprised to find that the room with the privacy, IS NOT THE MASTER. It is a small second room for a kid or close friend. It was a little startling at first but I must say, it all turned out fine (more than fine! lovely). Just be sure you aren't that concerned about two separate private rooms. Oh and there is laundry , coffee machine, snacks, and pretty much everything you need to be comfortable.

A GREAT CONDO

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here for a week in early October, 2013 and were totally happy with the condo. It is exactly as described and the pictures are accurate. Chestnut street is a busy narrow street but this condo is in the back of the condo building and is very quiet. We were never bothered with traffic noise (the windows face a parking garage and a bit of a view beyoind...we liked the privacy). The kitchen and bath had everything you would need...the master bed was very comfy...and the living area was very spacious and comfortable. We liked the second bedroom with a table/desk facing the windows..it provided the perfect spot to set up our tablet and use the internet. The building felt secure to us and we really enjoyed the neighborhood, with lots of nearby restaurants. We would highly recommend this condo to anyone wanting to stay in Philadelphia in the historic neighborhood. We walked to the historic sites on 6th (liberty bell, Independence Hall), and we also walked to the Capitol Building but it was a long walk and you can easily avoid it by catching the Phlash bus just a block or so away from the condo. We highly recommend doing the Big Bus hop on/hop off tour of Philly your first full day to get the lay of the land. Go to the Plough, just around the corner on 2nd for Haddock fish and chips..yum! P.S. we did not have a car for this week and did not feel we needed one EVER.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

Excellent location! We parked our vehicle across the street in a lot and were able to walk, cab or catch a bus everywhere we wanted to go. Appreciated the ample supply of toiletries and cleaning supplies. Condo was well maintained and upscale furnishing. We would definitely rent again for a true downtown vacation experience. Note, when we stayed the second bedroom/loft was not 100% private. It only had a half-wall. It worked out ok but we had to alter our planned sleeping arrangements.

PERFECT PHILLY GETAWAY

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in Philadelphia for 4 days on a recent vacation. This apartment is beautiful and the location is fantastic. There were 4 of us; 2 adults and 2 teenagers. We were very comfortable in the loft-the kitchen is stocked with very nice appliances and staple items if you decide to do meal preparation in the loft. The bathroom is also nicely stocked with some toiletries as well. It is located in a historical neighborhood that is within walking distance to many city attractions including Independence Hall, Home of Betsy Ross and Ben Franklin's grave. It is also very close to public transportation to get to places that are a little further away. One thing that I wish I would have known ahead of time: Pennsylvania does not sell liquor or wine on Sundays. You can still buy beer from a beer distributor on Sunday, but you can't buy anything less than a case. (No 6-packs) We didn't know this and ended up buying a case of beer on a Sunday afternoon and leaving most of it when we left Monday morning. We didn't find a big grocery store close by, so all the groceries were bought at a convenience store around the corner that was a little more expensive than we had planned. We did not do a lot of food preparation in the apartment-there are a lot of little restaurants all around the apartment with lots of variety. There is a good deli around the corner where we got some good sandwich stuff. All in all-it was a fantastic trip with delightful amenities-we will definitely book this property again! Thank you Josh-it was perfect!

PERFECT LOCATION FOR EXPLORING PHILADELPHIA

  • 5 out of 5
My 84 year old mother and I just recently returned from a week in the Chestnut Street condo. It proved to be the best possible location for our purposes. Set in the heart of Old Town, on a lively street of restaurants, cafes and bars, I never had reason to be concerned about safety even at 11 o’clock at night. We had no car, but found we could walk (Mom in wheelchair) nearly anywhere we wanted to go. The condo is within four blocks of Penn’s Landing, Arden Theater, Christ Church, Old City Tavern, Independence Hall, Betsy Ross’s House and the beautiful residential area of Society Hill. There are several small grocery stories, wine and beer merchants, drug stores, and movie theaters near by. Public transportation is easily accessible.

On the day of our arrival we were about ten minutes early and the key was not in the designated location. A woman next door came out to see about us and was very helpful. As it turned out the gentleman cleaning the condo was just finishing and escorted us up. The condo is on the top floor at the back of the building, away from the street noise. We found it to be very comfortable, clean, and well equipped. I appreciated the small stock of spices left on the shelves and was pleased to discover the dishwasher. The new room created by the partition gave each of us privacy and the cooling system worked well. The internet connection was strong and reliable.

We had occasion to contact the owner over a cable connection to the TV. Although he was out of town, he couldn’t have been more responsive or helpful.

Mom and I have been taking summer trips together for the last five years. We look for a place to call home in each of the locations we visit. We certainly felt that way about the Chestnut condo.

Thank you, Josh.

TERRIFIC URBAN WAY TO EXPERIENCE PHILLY

  • 5 out of 5
Condo was very comfortable and in a perfect location for walking almost everywhere we wanted to go. We took public transportation only to art museums and to ballpark. Grocery, wine, and drug stores all within easy walking distance.
