This apartment is in the desirable neighborhood of Old City on Arch St between 3rd and 4th Streets, very close to the subway as well as all of the restaurants, bars, and shops but far enough to escape the noise on busy weekends. It is a loft-style apartment with oversized windows and soaring ceilings in an old hoopskirt factory that has the original vintage wood floors, thick wooden beams, spiral staircase, and an exposed brick wall. The interior, however, was fully gutted and renovated 8 years ago, so it offers the historic charm that is associated with that area of the city as well as the modern comforts (washer/dryer, dishwasher, central heat and air, granite countertops, stainless appliances, vessel sink, etc). Heat and hot water are included in the rent, but the renter pays for electric and cable/internet.
The apartment is fully furnished and outfitted including all kitchen utensils and cookware, large flat screen tv, DVD player, Roku box, etc. It is perfect for someone who will only be in Philadelphia for a year or two and does not want to purchase all of the items necessary to outfit an apartment. The only items the renter will need to bring are bedding and towels. Rent is $1,800/month with a $1,500 security deposit. The apartment will be available August 1st.
