5523 Larchwood Ave

For anyone looking for housing in West Philly: I’ve got a really nice space and a wonderful dog if you're looking for a mature housemate! My house is a 1400sq ft. townhouse at Larchwood and 55th. It’s a three story townhome with a finished basement, washer/dryer and a back patio. There are two rooms included in the rent which are a bedroom and an office space. There’s a 10x10 upstairs furnished bedroom with lots of natural light with an adjacent office for your use that's approximately 5x10. I just recently bought this house, so the pictures are of the previous owner’s possessions. There is however a similar- looking Queen sized bed and dresser as well as two small closets in the room. It’s an old house and features original hardwood flooring and original wood detailing around the stairs and doorways. The upstairs is entirely carpeted, save the shared bathroom. The kitchen has been recently remodeled and includes a dishwasher and a garbage disposal. I’m looking for a housemate who is mature, clean, communicative and respectful of common spaces. I have a 6 year old Golden Retriever who gets along with anybody and everybody! I am looking for someone who is a team player and will help out with my dog on occasion and will take initiative with cleaning. I’ve got your back if you’ve got mine, and clear communication about expectations is very important to me. Rent will be $600 a month + utilities which have been about 150 a month.
