It’s a classic trinity, but everything on the inside is totally modern, including the spiral staircase.

If you have champagne taste on a beer-bottle budget, say hello to this completely modernized trinity in the ever-so-desirable neighborhood of Rittenhouse Square.

In traditional trinity fashion, this property rings in at a mere 700 square feet. However, what you get for that square footage is well worth it (if you can bear living modestly, that is).

The first level sports white marble floors, built-in shelving, and recessed lighting. Just off the main room is a tiny kitchen with white appliances, a stainless steel backsplash, and countertops. The second level can act as one of two things: an additional living space (office, den, entertainment area, etc.), or a second bedroom. This level is also home to the trinity’s only full bathroom. With stone-embellished walls and flooring, it’s definitely one of a kind.

The third level is home to another bedroom, which is safe to assume would be the ideal spot for the master bedroom.

The property’s basement is also available for use and contains more built-in shelving, relatively new mechanicals, and laundry.

Despite its location in one of Center City’s most sought-after neighborhoods, this trinity still manages to stand out amongst the rest. It is quaint yet contemporary, small yet spacious, and old yet new. So, if you want to call Rittenhouse Square your home and have the small needs to make trinity living possible, check this place out.
