Trinity houses are the Philly real estate version of hoodies during "hoodie weather."

If ever there were a season during which the trinity house shines brightest, it’s likely to come down to autumn or winter. Face it: they’re snug, usually hidden on some tucked away street, and make for wonderful dwellings during months where being outside is a drag. This residence, parked in a cloistered section of Society Hill, fits that description.

Quite literally just off Headhouse Square, you’ll find this home by wandering onto a skinny-mini portion of Naudain Street. There, an iron gate encloses a private courtyard where this expanded trinity is nestled there among other homes. The property consists of hardwood floors, washer & dryer, and two bedrooms and a den. Moreover, the current owners say it’s most recent updates include energy efficient windows and an updated electrical system.

And yes, the painted address tiles on the exterior were there long before the owners moved in, so they’ll be staying with the home. Specs and photos below.
