Trinity Tuesday: Restored Century-Old Home in Fitler Square
Its proximity to the the Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk may come in handy once spring rolls in, but in the meantime this home has other year-round offerings that make it our trinity pick of the day: it’s in charming Fitler Square, includes a quintessential pine trinity staircase. and was built nearly a century ago (don’t worry, it’s seen extensive updating throughout!).
The home’s most recent revamping was to its lower-level kitchen, which saw work done back in 2012. This room features an exposed brick and stone wall, bamboo floors, granite countertops, and white cabinetry. Amenity-wise it boasts a farmhouse sink, Jenn Air gas stove, Bosch dishwasher, and other stainless steel appliances. An additional sub-basement beneath this room is used for storage and utilities.
Upstairs, the living area keeps a cozy house with its wood-burning fireplace, while up on the second level is a front bedroom–currently used as a nursery–with two windows, two closets with built-ins, and a pocket door leading to a full-tile bathroom with stall shower and contemporary vanity. The master bedroom can be found on the third level, which is made up of refinished pine floors and a vaulted wood-beamed ceiling.
