Trinity Tuesday: Rittenhouse Home Has Bedroom Deck
Located on a cul-de-sac street reminiscent of old Philadelphia, this charming trinity is just a five-minute stroll from Rittenhouse Square.
Those with a library will be happy to find the first floor has a pair of built-in shelves reaching the 9-foot ceilings, making them the ideal bookcases — though, just wait till you get to the third floor. The kitchen is tiled and includes a pantry (or potential coat closet?), as well as under-cabinet lighting.
The second level offers more than one possibility: a bedroom, home office, or a den. It’s currently the latter and has its own dressing area with additional built-in storage. A bathroom which the listing says is “vintage tiled” (as in the style is vintage or they’re vintage?) can be found here as well.
On the third floor the master bedroom has what can only be described as a mouthwatering wall of bookshelves that might induce me to make a confession à la Liz Spikol (also, you can probably guess I spend a little too much time on this website). The room also has a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, in addition to a deck.
If you’re wondering about the basement, it’s unfinished but has all the laundry amenities you need. I’d probably just use it as storage. Meanwhile, out back is a little yard and breezeway storage.
