There’s a home hiding along the leafy street Rittenhouse Square, a short walk from the actual park. Behind its red door, there are even more hidden gems, including an open atrium that sits in the center of the home.

In total, the home at 2043 Rittenhouse Square clocks in at 1,665 square feet and features three bedrooms and two and a half baths. The open-air atrium is located just beyond the living area on the first floor. And while it could just stay as is, the listing offers ideas like turning it into a dining room or putting a terrace on top of it.

There’s a lot of potential throughout the rest of the home for fixing up, like in the sparse kitchen or on the third floor, which could be turned into a pretty epic master suite. Here, there’s already a wood-burning stove, exposed brick, and a skylight.

Take a tour of the $695,000 home below and imagine its potential.
