Old City

The oldest neighborhood in Philadelphia has always kept up with the times. One of Philadelphia's most simultaneously sophisticated and laid back communities, Old City is a great place to call home whether you're looking for a rehabbed 17th century townhouse or high-ceilinged factory loft.  When William Penn and the Quakers first settled in Philadelphia back in the 1600s, Old City was the place they called home. Now, over three centuries later, Old City Philadelphia real estate is a fantastic blend of old and new that always manages to feel current. From working class row houses lining cobblestone alleys to rehabbed warehouses, new construction and high rise condos with riverfront and city views, Old City real estate presents a wide range of choice for Philadelphia home buyers.

Old City Condos, Lofts and Studios

This was once known as the warehouse district, and there are lots of converted factories here. Warehouse condos, lofts, art spaces and studio apartments abound in this part of Philly. There aren't many single family homes on the market, but the range of choice when it comes to Old City condominiums is vast. Choose from funky apartments in elegant Victorian buildings, to expansive 6 bedroom conversions.
