Trinity Tuesday: Urban(e) Chic Near the Delaware
Ah, the loft. It’s the epitome of fashionable city living, the defining characteristic of the modern man’s home, the city girl’s crown jewel. But surely, this trendiness comes at a steep price.
For those who don’t want to shell out all their hard-earned cash, this charismatic trinity home offers an alternative that’s just as sweet–a stunning mix of classically Philadelphian features with a modern twist in the loft-like third-floor bedroom.
Nestled on a quiet, tree-lined street, this home showcases a charming living room on the first floor that is reminiscent of your traditional trinity: a one-room, pleasant space showcasing the clean fireplace, built-in bookshelf and spiral staircase. The lower level also fits the mold – the eat-in kitchen is actually a space you’ll be happy to cook in with lots of room for dining and entertaining guests.
Upstairs, the second-floor room contains the laundry facilities and can be used as home office space, a den or a second bedroom. There’s also an updated bathroom with a new subway tile tub enclosure.
And finally, there’s the third-floor master bedroom. It’s the real star of the home, with features like an angled ceiling adorned with skylights, exposed brick and wide planked floors that give this space a modern feel. Other details include built-in closets and a ceiling fan.
For fresh air, the outdoor private patio might just be your favorite spot. It is a beautiful space with lots of greenery and a fire pit for those fall nights. Within walking distance of restaurants and shops like Headhouse Farmers, Wawa, CVS, Whole Foods and more (psst — it has a Walk Score of 99), this trinity just might be the whole package.
