This week’s trinity is located in Abbott’s Court, which is a gated community of 15 trinities in Queen Village. It’s close to South Street, Penn’s Landing and all of the nightlife and community that the area has to offer—a perfect combination of seclusion and city life. There are tables and chairs out front, and the house has red brick and black shutters on the exteriors.

The kitchen is on the street level and features white Shaker-style cabinets, granite counters and stainless steel appliances. There’s also a well-designed, relatively spacious living room. Both feature hardwood floors, beige walls and white ceilings with spotlight lighting. The second floor features the “flexroom” that so many trinities have that can be used as either a den, an office or a second bedroom. The master bedroom is on the third floor and has a vaulted ceiling and exposed brick.

In addition to the common front courtyard all of the units in this development share, this unit also has a small private patio to one side, accessed from the kitchen, that’s just the right size for a grill.

It’s not every day that a space like this hits the market. Legendary Philadelphia architect Frank Miles Day built this building in 1892, and its second-floor condominium is now on sale 124 years later.

The building was constructed in the Italianate style that was popular throughout the United States in the latter half of the 19th century. This look was inspired by Italian homes and is characterized by flat roofs and ornately designed exteriors. Read more »
