316 S. Clarion St., Philadelphia, Pa. 19107 | TREND images via Keller Williams Center City Realty

The “little streets” of Washington Square West are among the most beloved residential streets in Philadelphia. Many of them are lined with those equally beloved (to some) houses known as trinities.

This trinity on a dead-end lane in Wash West represents the perfect marriage of little street and house type. Actually, if such a thing is possible, it may actually go beyond perfect.

That’s because the owners of this expanded trinity have turned it into an actual three-bedroom home with the sort of amenities usually found in larger spaces. Read more »

Trinity Tuesday: A Rittenhouse Charmer for $1650/Month

We don’t know about you, but we love summer. The sun, the flowers, the barbecues — what’s not to like?  Sadly, Philadelphia isn’t Florida. We can pretty much guarantee a nasty snow storm or two in a few months’ time. But, luckily, this pad is up for rent — and it’ll supply you with a dose of summer year round!

A few of this home’s features might have you thinking it’s June in January. What caught our eye was the amazing mural painted on the staircase from the second to the third floor. The butterflies, blue sky and picket fence wrap up the steps and bring a nice burst of color into the home. Coupled with the brick fireplaces, you can stay warm and cozy during the cold months.

It’s time to fire up your grill and get cooking! Lucky for you, this new listing may be the perfect spot for you to get into the swing of summertime.

The charming pad is situated on a picturesque, tree-lined block in the heart of Washington Square West. The brick exterior and red door exude historic appeal. Enter the home and enjoy the light and airy aura in the living room, freshly painted walls and new windows. Refinished hardwood floors and a fireplace (which, sadly, does not work) occupy the space. The kitchen boasts updated appliances and sufficient square footage for an eat-in area.

Then, follow the traditional box winder staircase up to the second floor. This level holds two bedrooms and a bathroom. Venture up to the third level where you can find an additional half floor. This space can be adapted for a bedroom, play room or den–whatever suits your needs.

The trinity features a full basement with plenty of storage, a washer and dryer. The element that gives the space extra appeal is definitely the back patio. The courtyard is fitting for a grill and seating area–perfect for entertaining during the warm and toasty summer months. Plus, it’s connected to the kitchen for easy access.

Located in the McCall School catchment, this trinity is mere steps away from Jefferson Hospital, great restaurants, Antique Row, Seger Park and various supermarkets like Acme and Whole Foods.

Trinity Tuesday: Suburban Quiet in Fitler Square for $380K

2136 Tryon St., Philadelphia, Pa. 19146 | TREND images via Keller Williams Realty Center City

Not all of the little streets in Center City are equal. Some are just more charming than others.

Tryon Street, a one-block lane sandwiched between the 2100 blocks of Lombard and Naudain streets near Fitler Square, falls into this category with its lush greenery and red-brick warmth.

Both of these elements spill over into this recently listed trinity near the block’s west end. Built in 1925, it’s one of the last examples of this house type prior to today’s trinities-on-steroids revival, and a recent top-to-bottom renovation has kept it apace with the times without sacrificing an ounce of its charm.

Calling all bargain hunters: here’s a two-for-one deal! Right in the heart of Northern Liberties, these two historic trinities built in the 1900s offer a variety of opportunities. With separate but equally charming units, the possibilities are endless.

Maybe being a landlord is in your future.

Coupled with its Northern Liberties address, the two-unit home finds itself steps away from grade-A restaurants, shopping, bars and galleries. Read more »

If you’re the type who loves the excitement of city living but feels the need to get away from it all every so often, this is the home you’ve been looking for.

This nicely maintained and up-to-date trinity is one of those hidden gems one runs across on rare occasions in Philadelphia.

The passageway leads to a garden of your very own, paved with brick and attractively landscaped.

Inside the house, there’s a modern kitchen on the first floor equipped with Jenn-Air appliances and bar seating. Above it, the original pine floors and wood-burning fireplace in the living room have been restored to mint condition. Read more »

This home caught our eye the moment the listing agent called it to our attention. Then we noticed a signal element in the photos. So we asked the agent: “Isn’t this an expanded trinity?”

The answer came back in the affirmative, which is why you’re reading about it here now. Read more »
