These 1 bedrooms, ranging from $1,600 to $3,000 per month, are close to Rittenhouse park and offer unique details that can only be found in Philly.

We’re not sure what constitutes a decent deal anymore in real estate. While rental prices are (thankfully) falling, some apartment prices seem high to us, at any rate. One bedrooms, however, continue to be plentiful which means you can afford to be choosy.  Well, in Philly at any rate. And Philly is a city that is rightfully proud of its history.

We found 7 1-bedroom rentals currently available in the Rittenhouse Square area that offer quaint and, in some cases, unique details such as a spiral staircase to a bed. Ranging in price from $1,600 to $3,000 you’re sure to find something that makes for great conversations.
