Browsing Philly's Real Estate Listings

Although we're not moving to Philadelphia until later this summer, I'm already on the hunt for our new home. I'm hoping we can find a cool little (affordable) row house to rent because I'm so ready to be done with high-rise apartment living! Philly is chock full of these in the areas we're looking, so I think it's possible. If anyone has any connections, let me know!

Meanwhile, as I dream about a row house we can call our own, I took a little detour in my search to browse some Center City Philly real estate listings. I found some pretty snazzy homes and thought you might like to go fake house hunting with me for a little while today. Sound good? Ok, great!

How cool is this one with its open floor plan and exposed beams?




Row houses are notorious for being narrow and challenging to decorate, but this one feels nice and open:

And take a look at the gorgeous kitchen!

 I love when architectural and historic details are preserved during old home renovations. Take this living room for example. See that fireplace and those wide plank wood floors? Gorgeous.
This one's not much to look at from the outside (in fact, it's totally ugly), but it's stunning inside. My favorite part is the kitchen/dining combo.
This one's not on the market, but I came across it on Apartment Therapy and was instantly taken with the raw wood beams and traditional architecture mixed with a modern design aesthetic.


Seeing all these beautiful homes is getting me quite excited to explore our new city this summer. It might be from the outside of these houses, but I think it's going to be a pretty awesome place to live for a couple of years!
