From the minute you see the bright red door outside this Center City trinity townhouse, it’s clear that this could be quite the place to live. Upon walking in, it’s apparent that despite the quirks of trinity living, this place might be one of the best city dwellings you’re going to find.

With its hardwood floors, exposed brick walls and that quintessential trinity fireplace, the first floor is definitely stylish. Read more »

Fitler Dining Room Adds Liquor Options

fitler-dining-room-daytime-interiorWhen Fitler Dining Room was just a rendering and a concept, the team that brought us Pub & Kitchen agreed to initially only offer beer and wine as a concession to the neighborhood association. But now, just after three years of brightening the corner of 22nd and Spruce with seasonal plantings and flowers, the restaurant is now offering a cocktail list including original and classic cocktails. Included in the list is FDR Tiki Rum Punch served in a traditional tiki mug and a very traditional Vesper Martini, “stirred, not shaken.”

The intimate restaurant isn’t a stocking a vast selection of liquor but enough to mix up most cocktails.

Maybe you can even score a bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau to bring.

Only in Philadelphia, Of Course: Colonial Meets Mid-Century in Fitler Square

Seems pretty standard from the outside, we’ll grant you that. But, appearances can be deceiving in the case of this 19th-century Colonial on Pine Street. See, at some point during its life* in Philadelphia, the home got a mid-century renovation that left it with roomy – agent Olenka Santore tells us the overall feel of the property is “lofty and airy”– indoor and outdoor spaces, as well as a partially finished lower level with carpeting.

Here’s what we found:

  • Crafted wood floors, two-story brick wall
  • Vaulted dining and living areas, the latter with working fireplace
  • Glass exposure opening to a “city garden”
  • “Sculptural” open stairway

Sure, Philadelphia’s building boom is due in large part to massive developments like 500 Walnut and the Comcast Innovation and Technology Center (just to name a few). But it’s also got a series of smaller projects springing forth that are helping it along. The latest one to break ground? Three luxury townhomes at the corner of 22nd and Lombard.

According to a press release from Philly Living, the residences at 2143-47 Lombard Street are each due to have a full-floor master suite, elevator, finished basement with guest and media rooms, and a full-floor roof deck with beverage cooler, built-in speakers and lighting, and connections for a gas grill. Mmmh, we can already smell the upcoming BBQs…

Watch out, you might just miss it! Slightly concealed on little Bonsall Street in Fitler Square, this quaint two-bedroom offers up a perfectly respectable piece of real estate: oak hardwood floors throughout, exposed brick, central air, and a wood-burning fireplace in the living room.

Like most compact trinities (this one comes at us with 583 square feet), the home makes use of all four of its floors, with the eat-in kitchen being situated in the lower level, where the Maytag washer and dryer and other mechanicals are also located. The top floor, meanwhile, is home to the main bedroom, which enjoys a vaulted ceiling and sizable closet space. Bonus? It’s got easy access to Rittenhouse amenities, as well as the Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk.
