Trinity Tuesday: An Updated Classic in Northern Liberties

This week's trinity is a pure example of the form, from the brick exterior to the exposed brick fireplaces.

The front-facing exterior sets the tone for this week’s Trinity Tuesday house. The classic red-brick trinity exterior fits in with its neighbors, some of which are visible through the gate above at left. The juxtaposition between the bright red brick and the all-black door and windows, however, makes the house stand out amidst a row of similarly hued homes.

Inside, there’s the classic trinity setup. The front door opens onto a cozy living room with a brick fireplace. The exposed brick on the first floor’s fireplace adds a touch of symmetry with the exterior. (That actually continues to all three floors. Each floor has a small part of the wall that is brick so there’s a real sense of continuity.)

Below this is the kitchen, which has tile flooring, a multicolored tile backsplash, modern black appliances including a built-in refrigerator and dishwasher, and a space that can be used for dining. There’s also a laundry/utility room in the basement.

On the second and third floors of this house are the two bedrooms. The second floor bedroom has a working fireplace and a full bathroom. On top of all of this, this Northern Liberties home comes with a secure parking spot in a 6th Street lot for $36 per month.





PRICE: $235,000
