On a blissfully peaceful tree-lined street in the heart of  Northern Liberties lies this week’s extra-large trinity. Recently, this home got a complete makeover, giving the structure a new take on traditional style and giving you the perfect space to start your next chapter.

Entering inside this historic little trinity, you are immediately greeted with the spacious living room and kitchen, two distinct spaces joined by a wide archway to create an open whole. With the addition of hardwood floors, as well as a newly installed large window letting in plenty of natural light, this living space provides the perfect-sized area for relaxing with or entertaining friends. A small step separates the kitchen from the living room while still allowing the space to flow nicely through. The kitchen includes all new stainless-steel appliances, gorgeous granite countertops, and a killer tile backsplash. With its modern traditional cabinetry and custom floor, the kitchen brings a 21st-century flair to this vintage-1866 home.

This house has yet another fabulous element to it: a large back patio outside. This area provides the perfect blank canvas for you as the new homeowner to do whatever you please, whether that be adding a garden area, or putting in a nice barbecue station and adding a cute table outside for entertaining. This space allows for your imagination and creativity to run wild.

Now, walking back inside the home, we wipe our feet and make our way upstairs to the second floor. This trinity’s unusually large footprint allowed for the creation of both a bedroom and a bonus room on this floor. The bedroom, in front, has lots of light and ample closet space, while the bonus room in back can be used as a den, a home office, storage space or any of several other uses. Both rooms connect to the updated bathroom with marble tile tub/shower enclosure.

Finally, moving to the top floor, you’ll find a spacious and light-filled master bedroom, complete with access to the attic for additional storage.

As you can see, this trinity has everything to offer the creative homeowner, and it’s within walking distance of all the cool stuff Northern Liberties has to offer. What more could you want in a home?
