Welcome to Iseminger Street!
Nestled on one of the most quiet & charming car-free streets in Philadelphia only a few blocks from Independence Mall & the Liberty Bell. This property is an entire two bedroom & two bath home. *Note: It is rare to find a comparable home in the neighborhood with two full bathrooms & private bedrooms. One king bed, one queen bed, & one pull out couch. Large back patio, wood fireplace, dishwasher, laundry, Xfinity/Comcast cable TV, high-speed internet, coffee maker, & all essentials included (fresh towels, linens, extra blankets, soap, hair dryer, etc.). Just a few blocks from the PA Convention Center and near the heart of all the historic sights Philly has to offer!
While still firmly rooted in history dating back to the 1800s, this house has also been thoroughly updated. What is so special about this home is the original detailing: wood-beamed ceilings, original plank floors, fireplace (fireplace in living room can be used & other three fireplaces are only decorative), paneled doors, & vintage built-ins. Eat in kitchen, large back patio, two spacious bedrooms, & two bathrooms (One is custom & was added December 2016). Sleeps up to five people comfortably.
**Please be aware that this property has somewhat steep stairs -- typically ok for most but may not be suitable for very young children or the elderly.**
The entire home is yours to enjoy! The key will be left in a lockbox, so you'll be able to check in & out at your convenience. I will be available throughout your stay if you need anything & I'm always happy to help you customize your Philadelphia experience. If you need any advice on restaurants & things to do then please ask!
My home is in the middle of the Washington Square West neighborhood & was built in 1824. It is one of the oldest & most historic areas in Philadelphia. The neighborhood is residential with historic townhouses, but also walking distance to everything in Philadelphia including many restaurants, bars, & attractions. The Pennsylvania Convention Center, Rittenhouse Square, Old City, Society Hill, South Street, Bella Vista, & Graduate Hospital are all within a five to ten minute walk. The street is one of the most charming in Philadelphia & is quiet despite being in the middle of the city. You'll find everything you might need within walking distance including a corner store, coffee shops, Whole Foods, a wine/liquor store, Walgreens, & many top rated bars & restaurants!
Public transportation (bus & subway) is easily accessible. There is a bus stop just east of 13th & Lombard & the subway stop (Broad Street Line) is located at Broad & Walnut. The house is within walking distance to two major train stations (Suburban Station & Jefferson Station). 30th Street Station is a ten minute Uber/cab ride & airport is twenty minute Uber/cab (usually under $20)! Uber, Lyft, & taxis are all readily available in the area. There is also an Indego bike share station just a couple blocks from the house on 13th between Locust and Walnut.
Because my home is located on a car-free street in the heart of the city, nearby street parking can be limited. However, there are a few parking garages & public parking lots close by that charge about $25/day to park. Most street parking near the house is fine for 2 hours, but you can go a few blocks south of South Street to park for extended periods of time & I'm always happy to offer tips & help assist. I may be able to provide parking permits for the same price the city charges me. Just ask first because of limited availability.
