The space

Our home was built in 1890 - actually pre-dating Lansdowne, the town in which it's located. While the exterior speaks to historical Philadelphia - the interior has been entirely renovated into multiple apartments with modern finishings. The property sits on .33 acres and includes the main building and a two-story carriage house. The 1 bedroom apartment available on AirBnB (approximately 540 square feet, lockable entry) is on the second floor of the main house. It includes a living room, bedroom, full kitchen, and bathroom with bathtub/shower. There are ceiling fans in the living room and bedroom. There are also air conditioners at the ready for hot days in both the living room and bedroom. The apartment has XFINITY (Comcast) cable and an Apple TV.

Matt was an excellent host and very responsive to everything I needed. The space was very contemporary and had everything I needed. The location was a short 10-15 minute drive to UPenn. This listing is highly recommended.

This place is great! We were in town for a wedding that happened to be a few blocks away. The place is great, really big for two people. The pictures online are exactly what you get. We were pleasantly surprised about the AC as well, it's been so warm for fall! We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Awesome location decent distance from everywhere in Philly. Downtown is a blast I suggest seeing spruce st. They have restaurants, hammocks fun things for kids. A tiny arcade but it's an awesome walk. Take at least three days to see what it can offer!

Matt's place is beautiful and well equipped. The house is situated in a nice quiet neighborhood just 20 minutes away from the city. Matt was incredibly welcoming.

I was here for a full 4 weeks and it worked out very nicely! The space was exactly what I was looking for, good kitchen. Very convenient to public transportation - I was working at HUP and it was a very easy short trip in every day. The area is cute and has a really fun farmer's market in the summer.

Matt, his wife Jessica, and their firecracker of a daughter Ripley love bringing life back to their 1890s colonial revival home near Philadelphia, PA. When not planning "what's next" on the home to-do list, we're still plenty busy:

Matt works for a digital marketing agency. A huge chili pepper fan, he also owns and operates a popular spicy food blog - PepperScale - and spice information site - SPICEography.

Jessica owns and operates a very popular Etsy store - Pattern Behavior. In fact her custom pillows are featured in our AirBnB apartment.

And Ripley? When our toddler isn't butt-kicking aliens (guess who she's named after...), she's busy bossing Elmo and Cookie Monster around.
