It doesn’t take much for homes in ritzy Rittenhouse Square to wow. But there’s a lot to like about this particular home that’s just hit the market, from its dreamy garden to its lovely interiors. Or, as the listing itself points out in capital letters, the fact that it was once the home of Philly restaurateur Audrey Claire.

The home is hidden away behind a gate and down an alley on 21st Street between Locust and Pine. Its garden game is definitely on point, from its ivy-strewn facade to the well-manicured garden out back.

Behind the ivy is a two-story, two-bedroom, two-bath home that clocks in at 1,190 square feet. There are some nice details throughout the first floor, including a window seat in the dining room, built-ins, and a fireplace. Upstairs, where the two bedrooms are located, the master suite has French doors that look over the big garden.

There’s an open house this Saturday, May 13 from 12 to 3 p.m.—if you can find the hidden gem.
