If simple living is your thing, here’s the perfect house for you. At under 700 square feet, it is the definition of smart use of space, with clever custom built-ins and storage solutions throughout, a gorgeous garden to use as your outdoor living room for half the year and great artistic design elements in every room. In a home with a footprint this size, you might expect an efficiency-style kitchen. Nope! This is a nice full-sized kitchen with new butcher block counters, maple cabinets, and stainless steel sink with built-in drainboard, plus cool open shelving, slate tile backsplash and original hardwood floors. Nestled between the kitchen and living room is an alcove with a pantry closet and the perfect spot for coat hooks. The living room has more original hardwood floors, a custom, industrial-inspired built-in desk and the perfect nook to hang your bike. French doors open to the nicely landscaped garden, which is as at least as big as the entire first floor. The second floor has cork flooring throughout. At the top of the stairway with the sweetest leaded glass window is yet another custom storage solution—chunky wood built-in shelves. To the left is the master bedroom with an extra-deep closet and three windows, two of which overlook the garden, and to the right is the second bedroom with two windows, currently used as a studio but could easily be a home office, nursery or to-die-for dressing room. The ceramic tile bathroom has a large, light-filled walk-in shower, pedestal sink and industrial towel bars. While simple living has its appeal, you won’t be roughing it here—there is central air, after all. This West Powelton charmer is on a great side street between Baring St (home of some of West Philly’s most beautiful homes) and Powelton Ave, half a block from Saunders Park and an easy walk to Green Line café, Lemon Grass Thai and the 10 trolley.
