A Newly Remodeled, Maximalist Philadelphia Home — House Tour

Rachael and Rob’s first house wasn’t their “dream home” when they bought it five years ago, right before their wedding. But with a giant yard in the city and an open floor plan on a corner in a neighborhood they loved, it had enough potential to be pretty darn close. The biggest issue was it needed work after sitting vacant for a few years. A longtime friend of the couple, Will Stichter of HYMY Industries, helped remodel their open-air kitchen to be the entertaining oasis it is now. And after two years of work — and a cabinet or two falling off the wall (breaking every piece of china they owned) — the remodel was finished. What started out as a not-quite-a-dream-home is now a dreamy home perfect for the couple and their young daughter Frankie.

First-Time Home Buyers Renovate a Philly Row Home on a Budget — House Tour

Name: John and Melissa. Kids: Elliott and Julian. Dogs: Beatrix (Boston) and Bacon (Frenchie).
Location: South Kensington — Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Size: 1800 square feet
Years lived in: 2.5 years, owned

This 1800-square-foot Philadelphia row home was just a shell when Melissa and John bought it two and a half years ago. On a tight budget, they applied for a special first-time home buyer loan to allow them to rehab the existing structure. They worked closely with a contractor, consultant and architect to create their dream home (as well as did a lot of the work themselves or with the help of friends). It was a true labor of love and a practice in patience; it took Melissa and John about two years to get the house to where it is today.

A Beautiful Vintage-Filled Studio Apartment in a Former Church — House Tour

Name: Deanna Leone, Jessie Mademann (and Thurston & Shermie the cats)
Location: Fishtown, Philadelphia
Size: Large Loft Studio (don’t know the square foot)
Years Lived In: 2.5 years, renting

Fishtown is one of Philadelphia’s many booming neighborhoods, and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to find a unique (and affordable!) home in the area. When you’re as creative as Jessie and Deanna, settling for a typical white-wall one-bedroom isn’t the ideal. The two were thrilled when a photographer friend of theirs had a vacant loft in his restored and renovated Fishtown church. What’s better than 15-foot windows, stained glass, and original pews throughout your home to give a sense of irreplaceable character?

A Cozy 1920s Studio Apartment in Philly — House Tour

Name: Jen Nolan
Location: Rittenhouse Square — Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Size: Roughly 500 square feet
Years lived in: 1.5 years, renting

When Jen moved to Philadelphia from Washington, D.C., she didn’t have any connections in the real estate world. Like many young professionals, she turned to Craigslist. Thankfully, she stumbled across an ad for a beautiful studio apartment in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood of Philadelphia. Built in the 1920s, the apartment has 12-foot ceilings, original hardwood floors, huge windows, a fireplace (sadly, non-working), and tons of character.
