Our very large apartment is nestled inside a 1909 stone and brick sub divided mansion located in the heart of Mount Airy. Tall trees line our streets providing a magical feeling to the neighborhood. With high ceilings, comfortable furnishings, mahogany doors, and huge windows overlooking mature trees and gardens we are sure you will become enchanted by the beauty and tranquility of our home. When walking into our home through the foyer you will be greeted by a winding staircase, chandeliers, and a baby grand piano. Our spacious apartment is located on the ground floor has sliding pocket doors when open create a refreshing flowing vibe. The spacious dinning room and common area is furnished with a large oval dining table in front of the living room fireplace (works) and a plush round couch in the window bay.

Our home sits on almost 2 acres of land. Our back yard is filled with flowering bushes and tall mature trees. There is a large lawn perfect for gatherings and games. Near us is the first bird sanctuary of Philadelphia (Carpenter’s Woods). It is a stone's throw away and home to many of the birds that fill our early mornings with their songs and chatter. A little further down our street is an entrance into the Wissahickon Valley Park with over 500 hiking, mountain biking, and equestrian trails. The heavily wooded area presents a dramatic landscape that winds its way along the Wissahickon Creek with breathtaking views. Mount Airy Village is also conveniently located just a few blocks away. The village features a community owned food co-op (Weavers Way) that provides high end foods and local produce.

First of all, before I talk about the space. I need to say a few words about Caroll. She is the sweetest thing you will ever meet. Super communicative, a ray of sunshine, helpful, engaged and clearly wants you to have a great experience. Couldn't ask for a better host. Now the place. You will be in awe the minute you pull up outside... Roman columns, historic door, a veritable palladium before you even get inside. In the golden hours you could shoot a whole book just outside. Once inside the awe continues. Huge spacious foyer. Beautiful grand staircase and then the room!! Two stories of epic grandeur. Enough for a year's worth of vogue covers. You will leave both exhilarated at what you did shoot and heartbroken over all the other stuff you didnt have time for. This space is HIGHLY recommended.
