About the property

4BR South Philly Rowhome has everything you need.

Beautiful vintage South Philly row house. This home is great for entertaining! You can enjoy large dinner parties, business events, family gatherings, or even a quiet night alone. The kitchen features a beautiful stone island with four counter stools. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the back patio or even on your front steps, south philly style! You'll have the full house with four bedrooms, two queen beds, and two double beds. Additional queen size air mattress is available. Full clean and brightly painted basement has a brand new washer and dryer for your convenience. The house has hardwood floors throughout except the kitchen and bathrooms with porcelain tile. The first floor is an open floor plan with a tiled vestibule, large living room with sectional sofa, two lounge chairs, a side chair and a 40' HDTV with 130 channels and HBO and WiFi, coat closet, large dining room, and eat-in kitchen towards the back of the house. The dining room has a decorative chandelier directly above the large glass table with 8 upholstered chairs. Additional 4 folding chairs are available if needed. The full bathroom upstairs includes vintage white and black tile, a white tiled bathtub, and has a nice tall window for additional light. The ceilings throughout the house are 10 feet high which make the house feel even larger than it is.

This is a great place to vacation for the week with a group, entertain clients, family or even just to get away with your loved one. Cheaper than center city hotels, but with all the access and better authentic food nearby. If you’re in town for business, sightseeing, medical reasons, sporting event, holiday, visiting family and friends or one of Philly’s many conventions, you can’t go wrong. You will feel right at home in this house. Perfect for a large to medium sized group or a small group looking for some space in the city.

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 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.

Great property! Just as beautiful and charming as advertised! Lots of extra amenities, comfortable beds, great location in walking distance of tons of yummy restaurants and eclectic stores, plenty of room for my husband and myself plus three teens/tweens, free wifi. Chrissy was the icing on the cake! She was incredibly helpful and always available to answer my many questions. Her recommendations were spot on. Lyft, instacart, google maps, and gopuff apps were essential! Thank you, Chrissy! If we ever find ourselves back in Philly, we will definitely stay here again!

Great place, great owner!

  • 5 of 5

We had a mini family reunion (6 adults, 2 kids) at Chrissy's townhouse. There was plenty of room for all of us, and it was very comfortable and well equipped. Chrissy even stocks the bathroom with toiletries. And when we had a few needs while we were there, Chrissy was unbelievably responsive -- sometimes within seconds. We really enjoyed walking from the house up Passyunk Ave. for dining and shopping and good neighborhood vibes. Lots to like if you are looking for a super comfortable place in Philly.

A very lovely condo.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice and perfect for our situation. You are walking distances or a short drive to most everything in Philadelphia proper.
