The streets that usually come to mind when we think of “Old Philadelphia” are the “little streets” — the Quince Streets and Elfreth’s Alleys that grace a million picture postcards. And the house type that so many think of when they say that phrase is the trinity, the uniquely Philadelphian form that generations of working people called home. Many of these homes are highly coveted pieces of property, not just for their location and history, but for their rarity, and it’s a special find when one happens to pop up on the market.

Today, however, you happen to be in luck!  This week we found you a gem, located in the heart of Rittenhouse Square, and is your chance to own a little bit of history. Built in 1925, this trinity on Rodman Street is the perfect place to build your nest on a quiet street that allows you to be in the heart of it all within minutes.

Recently, this home got a total makeover, complete with brand-new hardwood floors and crown molding throughout the house. The home also received brand new windows, interior doors and bathroom fixtures, as well as a new deck off of the second-floor bedroom to enjoy your morning coffee on.

The kitchen, which is a standout in and of itself, also received a grand makeover. Along with a fresh coat of new paint, the kitchen was spruced up with new cabinets, beautiful new dark grey granite countertops, and a stunning grey tile backsplash to complete the modern-traditional look. Finally, all-new stainless steel appliances were installed, including a brand-new Viking range. This stellar kitchen proves that you can bake your cake and enjoy it too in this masterpiece.

This home’s 878 square feet, though on the large side for a trinity, are still compact, but ultimately, it’s the charm that makes a house feel like home, no matter how tiny it may be. This move-in ready beauty is sure to captivate the hearts of anyone who steps foot into it and decides to make it their home forever.
