An end-fed antenna is capable of excellent performance if you carefully consider its length, ground radial system requirements, and a balun/"tuner" combination to reduce SWR and RFI problems.
In this video, "Outdoors On The Radio" shows us how he installed a 75-ft/12.86-m end-fed antenna in a small backyard. According to the video, "the antenna is performing well, even in a compromised situation." This video should give you some useful antenna ideas for your location.
