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.
