Calling all bargain hunters: here’s a two-for-one deal! Right in the heart of Northern Liberties, these two historic trinities built in the 1900s offer a variety of opportunities. With separate but equally charming units, the possibilities are endless. A duplex, such as this featured listing, is an appreciable investment for anyone looking to rent out a piece of property and make a little profit off their purchase. Who knows? Maybe being a landlord is in your future.

It must be noted that the real selling point for this two-for-one special is its location. Positioned on a quiet street, the property is surrounded by new construction condominiums. Coupled with its Northern Liberties address, the two-unit home finds itself steps away from grade-A restaurants, shopping, bars and galleries.

Situated back-to-back, these trinities have separate utilities, washers and dryers and respective basements. The front unit has a street view. A side easement leads to the second unit, which features a backyard. The patio is a nice touch but nonetheless is need of some major clearing.

Both units have high ceilings, bright paint and hardwood floors. These touches make the typically tiny trinity feel larger while still maintaining the traditional cozy appeal. The first floor is made up of the kitchen, complete with an eat-in area. Take the spiral staircase up to the second floor to find the bedroom and bathroom. The living room is comfortably located on the top level. But, feel free to adapt this space to meet your needs.

If you’re interested in this property, move quickly! Offers on the home will be reviewed today, Tuesday, June 12th.
