An idyllic Society Hill home from 1818 that charms on the corner of 5th and Spruce has just hit the market, with surprisingly spacious interiors.

The brick, 19th-century home may look tiny from the outside, but behind the blue front door hides a 1,783 square feet of space that stretches from the front living room to the dining room and kitchen, followed by a landscaped backyard hooked up with an automatic watering system.

The two-bedroom, two and a half-bathroom home is certified historic and features some original details like random-width hardwood floors throughout. There are also four working fireplaces: The living room and den’s are gas and the master bedroom and the dormer bedroom on the third floor have wood-burning fireplaces.

The master bedroom is really a suite, with enough room for a hallway lined with closets and a bathroom with a whirlpool tub and a sitting area. Meanwhile, the dormer bedroom on the top floor features more of that old-world charm with extremely wide-width hardwood floors and slanted ceilings.

The asking price of the home is $729,000.
