Trinity Tuesday: Big and Beautiful in Bella Vista
Usually, you can count on a trinity to have one or two bedrooms, one bathroom — and maybe a half bath if you’re lucky — and less than 1,000 square feet of interior space.
This expanded trinity has none of these things. Instead, this Bella Vista beauty has three (that’s right, three!) bedrooms, two full baths, and a whopping 1,344 square feet of space inside.
It’s also been polished to a high gloss thanks to a top-to-bottom renovation two years ago.
You’ll notice the difference the moment you walk in the front door and see both the extended stairway to the second floor and the high first-floor ceiling. The owner even installed a chandelier in the eat-in kitchen to add a dash of elegance to the open plan main floor.
That kitchen, like everything else in this house, features all the latest in amenities: stainless steel appliances and new traditional white-painted wood cabinetry. In the back, a large sliding glass door lets in plenty of natural light and allows access to the rear patio. The closet on this floor could be used for coats or pantry storage as you wish.
On the second floor are two bedrooms with ample closet space plus a full bath with shower stall.
The third floor is where you’ll find the spacious master bedroom and a large, nicely outfitted full bath with tile floor.
Below all this is a finished basement that offers storage or recreational space along with a late-model LG washer and dryer.
What else do you get with this home? Convenience. You’re on a quiet side street just steps from the Italian Market, the restaurants and shops on East Passyunk Avenue, and the Avenue of the Arts. South Street’s attractions and two Broad Street Line stations are also close at hand.
