You heard right about South Philly; tiny streets do have the most fun. And here comes this quirky, lovingly maintained row home just a block from East Passyunk Avenue. Home features built-in shelving, dutch door, human-sized bedrooms and a few secret compartments. The back patio is big enough to container garden, hang out and grill but private enough to chill in your underwear with a few friends or enemies. You'll bring your vine ripened tomatoes inside and glide across the cork flooring of the small but functional cook's kitchen. While the gravy simmers, take a bath in the vintage tub upstairs, but not too long. If you burn the gravy, the Nonna on the block will smell it and come knocking. Very quiet block except for Halloween; you will have to give out candy, join the festivities on 13th St. or turn off all the lights and enjoy that back patio. Great house with a handy/attentive landlord. Basement washer/dryer. Fountain farmer's markets on Wednesdays. Andrew Jackson Elementary catchment. Steps from Columbus Park and dog park. Fresh meat nearby at Primal Supply butcher. Comfort vegan food even closer at The Tasty. Water/sewer included up to $55. First, last and security req'd. $35 application fee
