The same builders behind this steel-clad home in Kensington have just listed another home a short walk away that’s small on footprint but big on design.

The new home at 1903 E. Arizona Street by Red Oak Development immediately stands out for its Cor-Ten steel facade, which is designed to rust to a burnt-orange color, and then seal itself. But what also makes this new build interesting is that it manages to fit a three-bedroom, three-bath, 2,129-square-foot home onto a small 12-foot-wide lot.

In order to save space and ensure that the home’s quarters didn’t feel too tight, the staircase was placed in the front of the home and coupled with a skylight that floods the home with light from top to bottom.

Like typical Philly rowhomes, the kitchen is located on the first floor, although in the center. Beyond the kitchen is a small sitting area with sliding doors that lead to the home’s first outdoor space; there’s a roof deck, too.

The placement of the staircase means that each landing is large enough to allow room for seating, with the bedrooms off to one side or the other of the house.

The asking price of this home is $395,000.
