It has plenty of character

An end rowhome in Passyunk Square that’s small on space but big in character is on the market, asking $225,000.

That price tag buys a 650-square-foot home with one bedroom and one bathroom. But what the property lacks in size it certainly makes up in architectural details, charm, and location.

The home has a traditional South Philly rowhome layout on the first floor, starting with the living room, a spacious kitchen, and a small backroom beyond that. Here, sliding doors lead to a nice surprise: A cozy back patio with a built-in terrace.

There are hardwood floors throughout the home, matched with salvaged materials, like a sliding barn door that hides the second-floor bathroom. And although there’s just 650 square feet, the home has some much-needed built-ins and extra storage spaces throughout so closet space shouldn’t be a problem.

The $225,000 home also has a pretty sweet spot at 648 Sears Street. That address puts the home a short walk from East Passyunk Avenue, Geno’s and Pat’s Steaks, and the Broad Street Line.
