The fact of the matter is that even if it didn’t have any notable historical ties, it’d still be a fantastic addition to our collection of on-the-market Philadelphia trinity homes. Of course, that won’t stop us from giving you its background.

Built in the early 1860s, the home is a top-to-bottom Civil War era construction. This may give you a hint as to its historical designation: it’s in Ringgold Place, which at one point saw famed architect George Howe acquire the entire 1900 block of Waverly Street and use the property at 1900 as his office while he worked on the PSFS building!

Inside the home are the original hardwood floors, but the street-level eat-in kitchen has been fully renovated to include the likes of Caesarstone countertops, a Liebherr fridge, Bosch dishwasher, and radiant heated floors–though the neatest kitchen feature might be the built-in banquette seating with storage. (Additional built-in seating can be found in the living room’s tripartite window.) Of the two bedrooms, each of which has built-in storage, the first has Arabescata Carrara marble and a glass enclosed shower, while the second has been renovated with the same marble but has an original clawfoot tub. Which room would you pick?
