Trinity Tuesday: Not Your Grandfather’s Trinity
Trinity houses are inherently a bit outside the box. This house, however, is unique even for a trinity.
The Queen Village home on S 2nd Street has the familiar three-level set up, but it also has a wraparound porch (as you know, a favorite of ours), a shared patio, and a roof deck with planters and an irrigation system that has views of Center City. The brick exterior looks sharp with all of the foliage you could get growing, too.
The inside is a little more familiar. It’s got the cozy quarters that you expect for a trinity, but it’s multi-story fireplace is a real showstopper. The kitchen is pretty roomy, though, and has ample cabinet space and an interesting wood-tile combination on the floor.
It also has a spiral staircase leading from the hardwood-floored master bedroom up onto the roof.
If you’re looking for a place to throw rooftop parties, scratch that gardening itch and still live in one of Philadelphia’s famous trinity homes, this house may be the one for you. It has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, 1,512 square feet and is on sale for $425,000.
