Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday townhome in Philadelphia - Townhome in Washington Square

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath Townhouse on quiet walking street

Our Three Story home located in the heart of Washington Square is just steps from the Convention Center, Independence Hall, City Hall and the Liberty Bell. With 3 floors and 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, our home can easily accommodate up to 4 travelers. We supply a fully equipped kitchen, linens & towels as well as internet and cable TV.

Philadelphia is a bustling city overflowing with activity, history, and culture. The 'City of Brotherly Love' is a city where many come to learn about the history of America's roots by touring Independence Hall, viewing the Liberty Bell, and visiting the house where Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence. What many visitors forget is that Philadelphia's history was written not just in a house that stood at Seventh and Market streets, but also in the neighborhoods where Philadelphians still live today.

While much of Philadelphia has been modernized and updated, some structures remain the same as they were in the 18th century when John Adams and Thomas Jefferson strolled through the streets of Philadelphia during the American Revolution. One of the things that makes Philadelphia unique is its architecture and real estate. Just one example of unique real estate is the Trinity houses of Philadelphia. Below is some more information on this uniquely Philadelphia structure and how it has survived the test of time.

What is a Trinity house?

A Trinity house is a three-story house with each floor containing one room. The Trinity house is believed to have originated in Philadelphia as early as the year 1720, and nearly 300 years later, Trinity houses are still found across the city of Philadelphia. Sometimes called 'Father, Son, and Holy Ghost' houses or 'Bandbox' houses, Trinity houses are typically quite small with an estimated 400-700 square feet of living space (our home has 700 sqft).

Please be aware that folks were smaller back in the 1700's when these homes were built. The stairs can be challenging if you are tall or have mobility issues. We own the listing #583380 which is located directly next door as well. There are more reviews for that property as we have been renting that one for a bit longer.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We are a Dutch family of four and usually stay in luxury hotels.

Although this time, we thought it would be nice to lease a private house, because the children usually get bored after a few days in a city hotel.

We stayed here for 7 nights after a short but busy visit of New York.

Sometimes you really long for home after a few days, her we easily could have stayed a few more weeks!

It is a great, complete, very clean and cozy place to stay, even our son (9) and daughter (10) loved the house.

Of course, the historic location is very nice and quiet with singing birds in the morning. Yet in perfect distance to the historical sites and shops in the city center as well.

We really liked the well-equipped new kitchen, although we did not cook more than a boiled egg because of the variety of restaurants nearby.

I would surly recommend to stay here when you visit Philadelphia either for holidays or for business.

We enjoyed it so much it really made our stay in Philadelphia more joyful!

Compliments to the owner.

We loved the location of this little townhouse, it is nestled into an intimate neighborhood and is walking distance from Independence Hall, the arts district and wonderful, little restaurants with outdoor seating. The house is 4 floors connected by narrow, steep, winding stairways. The kitchen is subterranean, nicely appointed with new appliances and everything you might need to fix a meal. There is a second, small kitchen on the main floor which is much more convenient than the lower kitchen with a microwave, sink and apartment refrigerator. The beds are comfortable and there are shutters on the windows in the bedrooms so you have complete privacy. The house was clean and there were plenty of household supplies such as paper products. We loved staying in an historical neighborhood and being able to walk everywhere. This house, though charming, would be a challenge for someone tall and/or unsteady. I would stay there again.

Historic Experience

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay in Philadelphia. What a better way to augment you tour of Ben Franklin, Liberty Bell, and Independence Hall than staying in a real 17th century row house! The walk from the house to the above mentioned locations was a fun experience as well. Kids loved it!

Nice Stay in Historic Philly

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our cozy visit to Philly over Easter Break. The property is in a quiet alley in the historic district within walking distance of wonderful restaurants and sights. The owner, Josh, was very responsive and helpful in making our stay enjoyable.

Cute House in a Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying in this place with my wife and two of our friends. The house is really cute and it's so well situated in Philly; there's lots of restaurants, bars, and cafes nearby. The street that it's on (Panama St) is lined with beautiful red brick houses.
