Our beloved 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom detached single family home on .18 acres. Located on a desirable upper avenue in Conshohocken. Walking distance to Spring Mill train station and downtown Conshy’s best restaurants and pubs.
A beautifully designed food forest in the back yard gives a sustainable feel in the city. In 2012 over 200 pounds of food was lazily harvested from the backyard. Twenty-four kinds of fruit are growing here, providing you with fresh fruit/berries from March until December. Large vegetable garden areas with some perennial or semi annual plants. Includes a kiwi trellis with hooks for hanging chairs and a fenced-in area for chickens or possibly a dog.
Off-street parking is available for two cars.
Newly installed appliances include a state-of-the-art mini-split heat pump (05-2011), an energy efficient refrigerator (05-2010), a heat pump water heater (06-2012) that costs 30% less to run, a top-of-the-line dishwasher (04-2011) with built-in water softener, and a high performance water saving shower head (10-2009). Recently refinished floors. Several windows have been refurbished maintaining the original historic look.
This is a great place for a family. The neighborhood is kid friendly.

We hope to find a great family to take care of everything and love it the same way we have! A list of edible plants on the property is available upon request. It is a bit long to list here. Further modifications to the property are a welcome edition. Check out http://www.rascaldesign.biz/ for pictures. Click on the blog and scroll through, there's plenty of pictures. The land has been transformed from concrete to wonderful soil.

-Chris

Not yet. The rent we're looking for is $2100/month but we're willing to be flexible for the Permies. We know you guys would take excellent care of everything
