Condo buildings host tiny houses with luxury amenities.

HGTV tends to present tiny houses as glorified sheds or shipping containers that can be plopped in any old back yard with a patient land owner. By contrast, some of Philadelphia’s smallest homes — each less than 1,100 square feet — are permanently moored to some of the toniest addresses in town. These also boast some of the highest listing prices in their category.

Tell me all about it: Not only does the Murano feature enough amenities — a lovely pool, deeded parking, 24-hour doorman, and a storage locker all included — but the location, a few minutes walk to Rittenhouse Square and its shops and restaurants, is enviable. In this unit, we also love the balcony and the super spacious walk-in closet.
