To be near upon and have historic choices is easy. The main question is price range. Univ city in the Sade alexander school catchment has held it's value. The area is ripe with victorians and queen annes. For a single home 2200-3000 sq ft you can expect to spend 400k to 650k depending on state of renovations
Second, the next neighborhood is filter sq and rittenhouse sq. Prices 600k and up. Most are historic, some are not. Just south of there is graduate hospital
I live in washington sq west, just a little further west and this area is also filled with historic homes. There are also historic renovated buildings as well. In univ city there is garden court condos, 4200 pine condos. In center city there are many choices, but if you like old world consider the Coronado, 1830 rittenhouse, 1901 walnut, the barlcay....or a historic loft renovation with parking try e western union building at 1111 locust st.
