Experience Life at The Commonwealth by Stay Alfred
Originally constructed in 1902 as the Commonwealth Title & Trust Building, now on the national registry of historic buildings, this newly renovated treasure puts you in the middle of Philadelphia's most desirable neighborhoods. Journey back in time as you enter The Commonwealth's lobby with vintage Art Deco wall sconces, mailboxes, and chandelier. You may be tempted to linger downstairs admiring the architecture while sipping complimentary coffee, but an even more inviting apartment awaits you upstairs.
Large windows in every room and sleek European design elements define this home. Bathed in natural light, the open concept living room and kitchen are warm and inviting. There is more than enough room for your entire party to spread out and relax in front of the TV when you need a break from the city. Take advantage of the full kitchen to prepare meals and save money.
With two spacious bedrooms and a pull-out sofa, this condo accommodates up to 5 people. The master bedroom features a plush king bed, large closet, and adjoining bathroom. In this private oasis you'll probably forget you aren't at home. The second bedroom, on the opposite side of the apartment, has a heavenly queen bed and spacious closet. Privacy is never an issue in this condo.
Hardwood floors throughout are just the tip of the iceberg as far as upscale elements. Both bathrooms have been outfitted with premium Grohe fixtures. The kitchen boasts custom-crafted European cabinetry, granite countertops, and stainless steel GE appliances. And let's not forget the in-home Bosch washer and dryer.
While it might be hard to convince yourself to leave this amazing apartment, you can take solace in the fact that you don't have to be gone long as it is close to everything! Located in the “Midtown Village” section of Philadelphia's City Center, the trendiest restaurants, shops, and attractions are at your doorstep. The famous Reading Terminal Market is blocks away, offering the finest locally grown produce and fresh meats, seafood and poultry; if you don't have time to cook, grab a sandwich from DiNic's or Salumeria.
Less than a mile away from The Commonwealth are a plethora of historical sites such as the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and the Betsy Ross House. But history isn't the only thing this location has to offer. Philadelphia's art and cultural epicenter—the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and Philadelphia Museum of Art—is within two miles of your home base. Don't forget to pose for a picture on the museum's famous Rocky Steps. To really treat yourself after a long day of sight-seeing, head down the block to try one of Capital Grille's famous dry-aged steaks. Then stop for a nightcap of house-aged spirits at Bank & Bourbon on your way home.
