What's Happening in:  Passyunk Square

SoPhilly Spotlight: Secret Garden edition

The word “rustic” comes to mind when looking at this week’s SoPhilly Spotlight, a 2-bed, 1.5 bath rowhouse on one of those rare South Philly blocks that feature a strip of park in the middle of the street.

740 Medina St. is a decent size at just under 1,200 square feet, but the trouble is, for $255,000, it’s a bit dated in the bathrooms and kitchen. Or maybe it’s just rustic?
