It’s not often that a trinity is this new. Rebuilt only ten years ago, it is quite certainly a baby compared to its counterparts. But don’t let its age (or lack thereof) fool you; the residence definitely gives its predecessors a run for their money.

Step through the front door and enter into the home’s modern kitchen, fit with tile countertops, designer backsplash, and stainless steel appliances. In typical Manayunk fashion, the home is situated on a hill. So, it makes sense that the sizable deck off the kitchen soars above the ground.

Back inside, descend down the spiral staircase into the lower level living room – a modern twist on the traditional trinity layout. This living area features a stone fireplace, a powder room, and yet another deck. Quite bigger than the first, though, this deck is perfect for entertaining guests during those warm summer months.

Located upstairs on the second floor are a decently sized bedroom and the home’s only full bathroom. Continue up the steps to a loft, which features a skylight and nice view, and depending on your needs, is probably the best choice for the master bedroom.

Any regular to Manayunk knows that parking after rush hour or on the weekends can be a nightmare, but you can breathe a sign of relief because this home is located on a street that has recently initiated permit parking. Add to that its prime location just minutes from the Manayunk train station and all the fun that Main Street has to offer, and you have yourself a winner.

A trinity house is already a rare commodity in Philadelphia, so it’s not every day we come across one that has five floors of space.

In fact, this five-floor trinity that maintains some traditional features might be the only one of its kind. Located just one block from Rittenhouse Square, built in 1750, and recently renovated, it is a great space situated on a quiet block. This home is pretty legit from a historical standpoint, too – it’s even listed on the Philadelphia Register of Historic Properties.

Updates to the property include a renovated kitchen, two renovated full bathrooms, central air, and new plumbing and electric. The living room showcases gorgeous hardwood floors, a fireplace, recessed lighting, built-ins, and a lighted picture nook. Read more »

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. Read more »

We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again – for this double trinity in Washington Square West, it’s all about the details.

It’s been just over two years since we featured this home the last time it was on the market. As indicated by the price increase since then, it has undergone some updates both extensively (shout out to the new kitchen) and minimally (the backyard has been cleaned up, amongst other things).

Celebrating its 100th birthday in 2017, the townhouse still maintains some of its finest original details like pine floors, moldings, two functioning fireplaces, and a (maybe not-so-fine) traditional trinity staircase. Alternatively, it also boasts fresh features like central air and a gourmet kitchen. Read more »

Trinity Tuesday: Elbow Room in Pennsport for $315K

Never judge a book by its cover. Never judge a trinity by its exterior, either.

From the moment you enter into this Pennsport trinity, you’ll be taken aback by what you find. The surprisingly spacious main level acts as an open living and dining room, and has brand new wood flooring, shelving, and a front window that brings in just the right amount of natural light.

The contemporary kitchen features trendy blue cabinetry, quartz countertops, and stainless steel appliances. At the back of the kitchen is a door leading out to a yard with a partial deck and a pear tree.

Head up the unwound trinity staircase to the second level, where you will find the first of three bedrooms. Located at the front of the house, it’s the only bedroom on this level – and although it’s not technically dubbed the master bedroom, we assume most homeowners would use it as such. Also on this level is a brand new bathroom with tile flooring, a marble subway tile tub, and modern vanity.

The third level is home to the last two bedrooms. A sliding barn door leads into the front bedroom, which contains a vaulted beadboard panel ceiling, a storage loft, and exposed brick. The back bedroom has all the features of its counterpart, except this one’s storage loft is big enough to be converted into a sleeping area (um, cool!). A full bathroom is located in the hall between both bedrooms.

Located in one of Philadelphia’s quietest riverfront neighborhoods, this trinity is safe, convenient, and close to Queen Village. It has great potential for anyone looking for that perfect starter home, as long as you can tolerate the square footage (or lack thereof). We will say, though, that the modern updates sure do make the most of every inch of this home.

They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Yet, with one look upon this trinity’s gated entryway, adorned with beautiful mosaics designed by Isaiah Zagar in the 1960s, you will desire to know more about what’s inside.

“Small but mighty” feels like the only appropriate way to describe this tiny trinity located in Queen Village. At 769 square feet, it’s definitely not for everyone. However, if you are looking for the convenience of living in the heart of the city – and can handle doing so modestly – this home might be exactly what you’re looking for. Read more »

It’s the little things in life that matter most, right?

Judging from this cozy yet contemporary trinity, the answer is a definite yes.

Falling just short of 1,000 square feet, it’s safe to say that this fairly priced home is relatively small. But it does boast a few qualities beyond the typical trinity, like the expanded kitchen that’s been added off the main level living room and wood flooring throughout the house. The kitchen features granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a door leading out to the back patio. Read more »

Do you love a little bit of history with a modern twist?

If so, say hello to this expanded trinity built in 1917 and located in the heart of Rittenhouse Square.

With two Juliet balconies, a brick paver yard in need of a little bit of love, and that troublesome trinity staircase separating the second and third levels, it may appear that this property is the definition of a traditional trinity. However, its expansive size – for a trinity, of course – separates it from the rest of its kind.

New updates on the main level like the beautiful parquet floors, a marble mantel fireplace, and an adorable breakfast area fit with a floor-to-ceiling window and sliding glass doors add some modern touches that make this property even more special.

Oh, and let’s take a moment to appreciate the modified staircase between the first and second levels.

Speaking of the second level, potential buyers will be pleased to find not just one room, as a typical trinity offers, but three: a den, an office, and an expansive bedroom.

There’s also a full bathroom on the second level that could use a little work – but if you need some inspiration, just head up to the third level, which boasts another full bathroom that’s newly designed with sleek gray tiling, a modern stall shower, and a stylish vanity.

Two additional bedrooms finish off the third level. The laundry room is located in the basement, though, so don’t worry about hitting the gym on laundry day.

This expansive trinity has all the makings of a great home, from curb appeal to interior comfort.

It feels like each week for Trinity Tuesday we talk about the downsides of trinities, and how that week’s featured house manages to deny those downsides. Truth be told, though, it’s warranted. When you look at tons of houses every week, you find that many of the city’s trinities really don’t need to be put up on our site. There are some that do, however, and this is one of them.
