If you’re the type who loves the excitement of city living but feels the need to get away from it all every so often, this is the home you’ve been looking for.

This nicely maintained and up-to-date trinity is one of those hidden gems one runs across on rare occasions in Philadelphia. You get to it by going through a narrow gated passageway from Lombard Street across from Starr Garden. The passageway leads to a garden of your very own, paved with brick and attractively landscaped.

Inside the house, there’s a modern kitchen on the first floor equipped with Jenn-Air appliances and bar seating. Above it, the original pine floors and wood-burning fireplace in the living room have been restored to mint condition.

Above that is the bedroom suite. Leaded glass windows add a touch of class to both the wide bedroom closet and the full bath, which also has a marble tile floor, half-tile wainscoting on the walls, a tub and a storage closet.

The basement has the laundry and room to stash your stuff.

This home offers you tranquility and a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the outside world – your own everyday getaway.
