About the property

4BR South Philly Rowhome has everything you need.

What comes to your mind when thinking of South Philly? Let's start with the smell of pastry in the air, neighbors on stoops chatting away, lovely tree-lined streets, and soft music of church bells in the distance. This handsome newly renovated 4-bedroom home celebrates modern while honoring the charm and original details that make it so special. If you can appreciate the character of an old home but enjoy the modern functionalities of a new home, then this is your home away from home.

Welcome to one of South Philly's neighborhoods rich in tradition! This is a beautiful South Philly row-home that was recently renovated. The home is perfect for large groups and families. Enter into a sunny vestibule with original classic decorative tile which opens to a spacious living room with original hardwood flooring with walnut inlay, soaring high ceilings, and a whitewashed decorative fireplace. Enjoy a movie night with Apple TV, HBO or the many channels on cable. Page through your favorite websites on the WiFi or stream your favorite Netflix movie. The formal dining room seats 8 comfortably and is perfect for dinner parties and entertaining. Pull up 4 folding chairs for additional seating! The designer kitchen boasts an Italian made soapstone counter-top, a 9-foot island with seating for 4 and stainless steel appliances. The cheerfully painted powder room is tucked away in the back overlooking the back patio. The patio is quaint and ideal for BBQing or simply enjoying a cup of coffee with your morning paper. Take the staircase to the second floor and find four sunny bedrooms. Two bedrooms have queen-size beds while the other two have full-size beds. The home easily sleeps 8. Queen air mattress available upon request. The bathroom was recently renovated with vintage-inspired black and white tile. Enjoy singing along to your Kohler shower head that plays music! You'll find brand new washer and dryer in the laundry room located in the basement.

About chrissy thompson

Hello. I am Chrissy and I live just a few blocks away from where you will be staying if you book with me. I've lived in Philadelphia now for 17 years. I went to a local Philadelphia art school and loved the city so much I stayed! I currently work in center city as a commercial interior designer and have a passion for art and design. I enjoy entertaining, drawing and painting, dining out, home improvements and traveling. It is my goal to make you a happy guest and that you are comfortable staying at my home.

chrissy thompson purchased this house in 2004

Why chrissy thompson chose South Philadelphia

This was my home, my very first home and I love it. I recently renovated it in 2016 and furnished it with personal touches for you to enjoy. It's a great home in the heart of South Philly and easily accessible to everything.

What makes this house unique

I love the 10'-0' high ceilings this home offers. The original wood floors with walnut trim is to die for. The tree lined street is also a nice touch, not to mention great neighbors! This 100 year old home has been completely renovated.

Beautiful and perfect for visiting family

  • 4 of 5

The property is well maintained and spacious. It is in a cute neighborhood and we enjoyed our stay. Nice details included throughout the home to make you comfortable. Only thing that was a pain was parking.

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for us. It was very close to the subway so we could easily get into the city. We had 3 children there with us and it was walking distance from a nice playground as well as a cute library with a nice childrens section. The kids had a great time. The owner even had a basket of toys and a high chair there for us which we very much appreciated.

Dinner party for groom

  • 5 of 5

Our host Chrissy was wonderful, helpful, prompt, and welcoming.

Everything in the house was clean and well kept.

Her history in formal art training showed in the attention to detail the decor had.

Had a great time, hope to book again for future events.

Beautiful home with great amenities! Parking is tight but to be expected in big city.

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and has everything you need, grocery store just down the street also lots of places to eat within walking distance. Would be even better if it was closer to downtown but not bad 20 minutes with traffic.
