The room is furnished, queen size bed, month to month, and includes all utilities and wifi. No kitchen, just a mini-fridge, electric kettle, coffeemaker, and microwave in each room. No laundry area in the house, but a spacious newly renovated laundromat is just 3 blocks away. And there is no common space but the porch is really nice. The house is huge with hardwood floors throughout, and tile bathrooms. It is a non-smoking, clean, well-maintained house in a quiet very safe area with a lovely park directly across the street. As far as privacy, it's almost like having your own little apartment. I will clean the rooms every two weeks, but otherwise won't bother you at all. I have cats, but they are not allowed in the rooms and there is no cat smell. They stay in my room most of the time. Parking is free right in front of the house. Very rare in Philadelphia! The 42 bus is one block away (see septa.org for schedule) and takes just 10 minutes to Penn, and 20 to Center City. Quiet, no smoking, resourcefulness, and independence are important. You are someone who works full time, is a professional or student, is quiet, doesn't cook much or at all, does not smoke at all, and is an animal lover.
