Why rent when you can own this beauty? All utilities (except electric) included as well as most maintenance so you can enjoy stress-free, apartment-style living while gaining equity and other advantages of ownership! This historic mansion sits in the heart of Washington Square in a location that simply cannot be beat. A beautiful shared courtyard with a pool makes this a very unique building in Center City (think Melrose Place without the drama!) and will save you having to wait 10 years on a list for an exclusive and expensive swim club membership. Modern amenities along with character and charm galore with hardwood floors, built-ins and original details throughout. Spacious living room with working fireplace and leaded glass windows. Updated eat-in-kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Large bedroom with lovely Palladian-style windows. Large hallway closet is great for storage or could easily be converted to a laundry room. Shared roof deck with great city views. All within a few blocks from many of the city's top restaurants, shops, and bars, Jefferson University, University of PA, and the rest of Center City.
