This rehabbed two-bedroom, one-bath home is located on one of those magical cobblestone streets that you may have accidentally stumbled across while finding your way from the Tavern to Insomnia Cookies early one Sunday morning. Asking $419,000, the house is as compact as you might expect, measuring in at less than 1,000 square feet, but take a few lessons in organizational mastery from these listing photos, and you'll be well on your way to squeezing your existence into a 464 square-foot lot. It boasts an open kitchen with farm sink, an "outdoor dining space which recently won first prize in the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society's City Gardens Contest" (but really the most important thing is that those pups look miiiiiiiiighty pleased), exposed brick, gas fireplace, and built-in bookshelves. The second floor bedroom features a built-in closet, a fireplace, and new windows overlooking Jessup Street. All the way upstairs, the dormer bedroom features a spacious closet area and original kings-width plank flooring. There's also a newly finished basement that boasts storage, a new floor, a new hot water heater, and...hold the phone..."this space in the basement is like nothing I have ever seen in my 26 years of selling real estate- so neat!?" Dude. Vary the hyperboles.
