Your typical Philadelphia trinity or rowhouse comes with a postage-stamp-sized rear patio paved with concrete. On occasion, you might find one big enough to hold both a grill and a table and chairs, or one that’s nicely landscaped, or even both.

This updated trinity near what used to be Graduate Hospital has one of those typical postage-stamp-sized rear patios. But it makes up for this with the gated park across the way. It’s a private park for use by residents of its block of Rodman Street. That includes you if you buy this home.

And if you buy this home, you will get a comfortable trinity that’s a contemporary style showcase thanks to a late-1970s rebuild.

The main floor, for instance, looks like a scaled-down version of a contemporary suburban rancher with its tile floor and clean-lined, stone-hearth fireplace. The sleek cabinetry in the recently updated kitchen continues the theme.

The carpeted second-floor and master bedrooms exhibit similarly clean lines, and each one has its own rear deck. The second-floor hall bath has a tile floor, as does the master bathroom; the one in the master bathroom also has radiant heat.

You can stash your bike in the cabinet on the rear patio, which also has access to the street behind it.

When you want to partake of city life, South Street, Rittenhouse Square and the Avenue of the Arts are all a short walk away. And when you want a quiet green respite, you have that park across the street.
