Hi! I'm moving to the area to start a masters program at Penn and I'm looking for a roommate to share a spacious 2BR/2BA apartment at 13th and Pine. The available space is a huge bedroom and private bathroom. Rent for the space is $1050 (the entire apartment is $2200), and the lease starts August 1. Note that the photos are messy because the current tenants are in the process of moving out. The space looks even larger when it's in order.
THE NEIGHBORHOOD: My friends who are familiar with Philly tell me that the neighborhood - known as Washington Square West - is a great area full of shops, restaurants, and coffee houses. It's safe, walkable, and very accessible to public transit.
THE APARTMENT: The apartment is in a multi-family brick rowhouse. When you enter into the common area on the first floor, you see a large, open space with hardwood floors and bay windows. At the near end of the common area is a large living room and dining area, and at the far end on the right is a modern kitchen with dishwasher. Climbing a flight of stairs from the common area you have the bedroom and bathroom that I am renting. Descending another flight of stairs from the common area you have the second bedroom and bathroom that you would rent as well as the washer/dryer. The bedroom is carpeted, has two street-level windows and two closets, and is probably about 12 feet by 20 feet (I am estimating but it is very, very large - you can see this in the photos if you look past the boxes). I think this apartment will be a great home - quiet, large, and private and yet in the center of the city!
THE ROOMMATE: I am a 31 year old woman and I am easy-going, fun, and neat. I don't know how much free time I'll have once my program starts, but my interests include biking, hiking, playing music (I play the cello and like to play with chamber groups), watching movies, and spending time with friends over dinner/coffee/drinks. I am looking for a drama-free and comfortable roommate situation. Feel free to email for more details.
