Trinity Tuesday: A Little Something Extra in Pennsport

Breathing room. Storage space. A den. A deck. An eat-in kitchen. A second bathroom. Whatever it is you want, this nicely maintained expanded trinity near Jefferson Square Park has it.

What a difference 200 or so square feet can make.

That extra floor space turns a standard trinity into a potential show piece with room for more than eating and sleeping.

Take this up-to-date, handsome trinity on a quiet Pennsport street, for instance. Extra space tacked on at the back gives this classic of the genre features you often don’t find in trinities.

Such as a main floor kitchen that also has room for a dining table as well as plenty of counter and cabinet space.

Or two spaces for outdoor enjoyment: a paved courtyard in back of the kitchen and a deck off the top-floor master bedroom.

That extra space also provides room for a bathroom on each floor and a den as well as a bedroom on the second floor. (You can use that back room as a home office or extra-large walk-in closet if you prefer.)

And the third-floor bathroom is outfitted well enough to justify the title “master bathroom,” thanks to its dual vanities and full tile tub/shower enclosure. Not to mention that there’s a little extra room off the master bedroom as well. (See paragraph above for possible uses.)

In short, this is a big little home in great condition in a great location: you’re just steps away from local dining legends like Federal Donuts and The Industry, and the big-box stores on Columbus Boulevard are also a short jaunt away (there are car share pods and an Indego bike share station close by if you need wheels to help you carry your haul back).
