    From the front, this recently built Manayunk home looks like much of the other new townhouses going up all throughout Philly. But it saves its surprise for the backyard, where there's a lush, landscaped oasis waiting. The 3,600-square-foot home was built in 2013 and features four bedrooms and two and a half baths.
