Four bedrooms, three bathrooms, including a large master bedroom and bath.

1,992 square feet of interior space.

Pretty decent for an attractive, beautifully updated home on one of those charming little cobblestone streets you find scattered throughout Center City (this one’s on the western fringe of Fitler Square).

This home caught our eye the moment the listing agent called it to our attention. Then we noticed a signal element in the photos. So we asked the agent: “Isn’t this an expanded trinity?”

The answer came back in the affirmative, which is why you’re reading about it here now.

Actually, this lovely specimen is actually two trinities back to back, a rarity for this house type, and its owner has made the most of the extra space that it offers.

There’s a full open living room-dining room-kitchen arrangement on the main floor, with an updated galley kitchen with dual sinks next to the foyer and a spacious living room with gas fireplace in the rear. Behind the wall of French doors at the rear of the living room is a beautifully landscaped 15-foot by 15-foot brick courtyard.

On the second floor are two bedrooms and a full bath. One bedroom has a Murphy bed and the other a wood-burning fireplace.

The third-floor master bedroom features a skylit loft space accessed by a mini-trinity-style staircase. It shares the double-vanity master bathroom with a fourth bedroom underneath the loft space.

In the basement you’ll find the laundry facilities, a powder room and plenty of storage space.

Plenty of architectural detail — beamed ceilings, exposed brick, original hardwood floors, antique vanities in the bathrooms — make this historically certified home stand out as well. And you’re close to the Grays Ferry Triangle, the Schuylkill River Trail, and Fitler Square itself. If you work near Rittenhouse Square or in University City, this is also a perfect location, as you can easily walk to both as well.



BATHS: 2 full, 1 half


SALE PRICE: $845,000

OTHER STUFF: In addition to the upgrades in the kitchen and bathrooms, this home has a new roof with a lifetime warranty, a high-intensity European BAXI 24fi heating system and a tankless water heater.
