The SpaceThe best part of living here is that it's steps from the village, where you can find good food and atmosphere, the commuter train, and a very short drive from anything else to please the palate or the physique (lovely trails for cycling and walking are a mile away). As long as you don't mind the train sounds - which I stopped hearing only days after moving in nearly six years ago - you'll love the idyll of this Main Line charming town, and the abundant sunlight. Guest AccessThere are two entrances to my apartment: a main one from the front of the house that accesses the first, second (mine), and third floor apartments. There's also a back lot fire escape entrance - except in wet/icy weather.
I have a key to the laundry room downstairs in the back lot, and the laundry is free of charge. If you'd prefer to use a laundromat, there's one two blocks away. I will provide keys to front, back, and laundry room doors.
You are free to use the kitchen as well, and to help yourself to whatever is in the refrigerator. The bathroom is shared between us, so I would only ask that you leave it in clean shape when you use it.
The dining room also has a sitting area and the living room is spacious for sitting and relaxing, reading and watching television. In terms of where you might want to do work, my dining room table and the seating areas both in the living and dining rooms are ample and comfortable! Interaction with GuestsSince I live here full-time, chances are I will be here when you come to stay. I can show you around, and I will also be going about my business, teaching and carrying on with my own daily activities.
If I'm not here, I will arrange for you to get keys from a friend. The NeighborhoodNarberth is its own village and has a thriving local economy with all its shops, restaurants, yoga studios, books stores, cafes, etc. There's enough to do here for a weekend, and if you want to explore the thriving, scenic, historic city of Philadelphia, the rail line is across the street. Philadelphia's cultural pulse is thriving, with food, theater, and music in abundance! Getting AroundThere's a regional rail station across the street, and it's a direct line into center city Philadelphia. The same train gets you to Drexel University, University of Pennsylvania, and Temple University (citybound). Going the other way, you can take the same train line directly to Haverford College, Rosemont College, Bryn Mawr College, and Villanova University. The historic Reading Terminal Market is directly accessible via this train, too (citybound). Now, that's a must-do. Here's the link to the Septa Regional Rail line's Paoli Thorndale line, which is across the street:
(URL HIDDEN) Other Things to NoteI do have a dog, a small one that sheds. If you're allergic to dogs, this is something you should know. If you have a well-trained, housebroken, small non-shedding dog, he/she is welcome to join you here, and I will add $50 to the cleaning fee. Cats not welcome, I'm afraid; I'm terribly allergic!
