Among the things Philly does well are trinity homes — three story spots that fit a lot into little space — and this home situated between the Graduate Hospital and Rittenhouse Square neighborhoods exemplifies the style well.
Typically 400 to 600 square feet, this trinity is a little larger, offering 878 square feet of space, two beds and 1.5 baths. It just dropped on the market for $450,000, and it has a lot of the classic trinity elements—from the winding stair, to the below-level kitchen.
It opens into a living room, with an exposed brick wall, brick fireplace, and access to an outdoor patio. Downstairs, a staircase opens up to a full kitchen, with a railway tile backsplash and laundry.
The upstairs rooms on the second and third stories, respectively, offer a lot in terms of light and space, with vaulted ceilings, plenty of windows, and hardwood floors. Plus, there’s a little porch with room for a table and chairs. Built in 1925, the home last sold for $400,000 in 2017.
