Trinity Tuesday: Close to Everything, Far From the Crowd in Fishtown

This gem of a trinity on a sunny Fishtown street has had new life breathed into it thanks to a top-to-bottom renovation.

This beautifully updated trinity in the southwest corner of Fishtown is a stone’s throw from the Frankford El, which you can see from your front door. Frankford Avenue’s happening restaurant and shopping scene is just a short walk away, as is a convenient shopping center in adjacent Northern Liberties. Yet you’ll feel like you stumbled into a small-town enclave when you walk down Lee Street and into the front door of this classic brick home.

Just inside that front door is the main-floor living room, which provides a cozy space to curl into. The contrast between the dark hardwood floors and the light that streams through your windows gives the impression that this space is bigger than it seems. The back door leads to a brand-new patio with plenty of space to relax and recline or entertain and dine while shutting out the world around you.

Upstairs, on the second floor, is where you’ll find the kitchen. Cherry cabinetry, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances have upgraded this kitchen from drab to fab!

Moving up, at the top of the stairs on the third floor, you’ll find a homey bedroom. With three large windows, the natural light covers your room, brightening and opening the space. The hardwood floors continue upstairs as well, and a bathroom complete with a shower and cherry vanity pull the space together.
