These days, working from home is nothing new. With the ability to text, email, or video-conference with coworkers and clients alike, why wouldn’t you write up that important report summary while brewing your favorite coffee right from your kitchen?

Keeping this in mind, it’s pretty cool (and surprising) when charming vintage houses find themselves suited for modern live & work use. Below are five solid homes with terrific work spaces attached.

    Awesome article!! Thank you so much for sharing these for those interested in really finding the perfect live/work space in the Philly area!!

    The perfect property to those wanting to live where they work. Separate private entrances to the retail or residential spaces. Private off street parking. Property rests between 2 streets. Investors will benefit form rental for one or both units. Live in one – rent the other out. Rent out the retail – live in the residence.
