    Description

    Philadelphia certainly has its share of quaint little enclaves and Instagram-worthy streets, but one of the most unexpected surprises just steps away from all the hustle and bustle of the city, is the magical 200 block of Quince Street. Just around the corner from the theatre district and Jefferson Hospital, you'll find yourself in a picturesque, pedestrian-only oasis of classic ivy-strewn Philadelphia rowhomes with tiny marble stoops, colorful doors, fanlights and shuttered windows flanked with potted planters. The cobblestoned street is lined with tall trees and boasts an eclectic show of flags uniformly mounted on almost every single home. Featured on Curbed's, "Philadelphia's Most Beautiful Alleys", narrow Quince Street runs only four blocks from Walnut to Lombard Streets and first appeared in Philadelphia City Directories in 1813 as "Quince Alley." It is so picturesque and refreshing, you'll forget you're in the heart of the city. 256 Quince is a lovely, carefully-restored trinity added to the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places in 1961. Enter into a living room with gorgeous hardwood floors, a decorative fireplace, floating shelves made of reclaimed beams and a wall of whitewashed exposed brick. The sunny kitchen boasts modern industrial sputnik-style task lighting, painted white cabinets, butcher block countertops and exposed brick details and leads to a charming slate and brick patio perfect for cool autumn nights dining al fresco. On the second floor, find a lovely, freshly-painted bedroom with fireplace, a vintage-inspired tile bath and a sun-soaked den with a fireplace and built-in industrial shelving. The third floor primary bedroom is cozy and warm with a fourth decorative fireplace and large windows to allow the feeling of sleeping in a serene loft nestled in the tree tops. Surrounding the cobblestone enclave of Quince Street is the bustling neighborhood of Washington Square West where you'll enjoy dining in Midtown Village shopping on Pine Street's Antique Row, relaxing with a book in Washington Square Park and taking in a theater production along the Avenue of the Arts. No car needed as the best of the city is walkable and the Jefferson train station is just a few blocks away, as is the Walnut-Locust Broad Street subway stop. Charm and tranquility tucked away in a coveted and exciting neighborhood of rich history; welcome home.
