This week’s trinity is nestled in a small brick alley and courtyard on South Street. While it only has 711 square feet, which is about what you would expect for most trinities, this one makes use of its space effectively to ensure that it is a very livable home.
Take the first-floor kitchen, for example. In lieu of a standard kitchen table with chairs, this room has built-in seating wrapping around the corner of one of its walls. This is a subtle touch that can create so much room in what can often be one of the most cramped parts of a house. Stainless steel appliances and a glass-tiled backsplash help define the house’s contemporary style.
Downstairs is the living area, and on the third floor is the master bedroom, which features double-paned windows and high ceilings. The second floor is a den/office that can be converted to an alternate bedroom. It also has the home’s only bathroom, which has a tiled floor and custom glass shower doors. The home also has a laundry room and central air conditioning.
THE FINE PRINT
SQUARE FEET: 711
ADDITIONAL INFO: If you live here you have the option between permit street parking and monthly parking across the street. The price was cut by $6,000, its third price reduction, on February 26.
