Enjoy condo living at its finest at the Tivoli, one of the Art Museum area's most desirable luxury condominium communities. With over 1,200 square feet of living space on a single level, two exposures including pretty courtyard and skyline views, and amenities like a 24-hour concierge, fitness room, playroom and community room/kitchen, as well as meticulously maintained grounds, you may never want to leave?and yes, the mega Whole Foods delivers. A slate-tiled entry takes you past a huge coat closet (or pantry!) into the U-shaped kitchen featuring 42-inch honey-colored Shaker-style cabinets that nicely contrast with the black granite countertops and mini slate-tile backsplash, along with stainless steel appliances including a slide-in GE Profile five-burner range. With all the amazing restaurants nearby, we might suggest just putting up some barstools at the breakfast bar and keeping the open living area free for a large sectional to curl up in front of the gas fireplace, which is flanked by built-in shelving complete with lighted display niches for your home library or curated sculpture collection. But don't fret, there's plenty of room for a dining table--even a 10-seater if that's what you need. The two bedrooms are on opposite ends of the unit, great for privacy, and both enjoy walk-in closets. The master is on the north side with an en-suite bath featuring a marble-topped dual vanity, Zuma whirlpool tub and Travertine tile surround. The second bath, just outside the other bedroom, is massive. The extra space provides the potential to add linen storage, an extra-luxe vanity, or for you neat freaks, a divided hamper setup of your dreams--the laundry closet with full-size washer and dryer is just a few steps away. Enjoy the building's community greenspace or Matthias Baldwin Park across the street, and of course Fairmount Park is just a few blocks away. The best of the Art Museum area is just beyond the lobby: TargetExpress, Pizzeria Vetri, Kite & Key, Sabrina's, Buena Onda, the Central Library, Kelly Drive and of course all the art you can handle, with the Barnes Foundation, the Rodin Museum and the Philadelphia Museum of Art lining the Parkway.

parking & public transportation

This is a highly residential neighborhood so parking is pretty scarce but not impossible to find. There is non metered & permitted parking all over the neighborhood as well as a few private parking lots. These are best found through word of mouth or you could try Best Parking. Septa bus routes 7, 32, 43 & 48 service the neighborhood & for a blast from the past the trolley on Girard Avenue is still in service. Check out septa.org for more information.
