Not all of the little streets in Center City are equal. Some are just more charming than others.

Tryon Street, a one-block lane sandwiched between the 2100 blocks of Lombard and Naudain streets near Fitler Square, falls into this category with its lush greenery and red-brick warmth.

Both of these elements spill over into this recently listed trinity near the block’s west end. Built in 1925, it’s one of the last examples of this house type prior to today’s trinities-on-steroids revival, and a recent top-to-bottom renovation has kept it apace with the times without sacrificing an ounce of its charm.

In fact, decorative touches such as stained-glass windows, refinished hardwood floors and exposed brick on the main floor add extra character to what is otherwise a strikingly modern home.

Besides the exposed brick, the main floor also contains a working fireplace, an up-to-the-minute compact kitchen and a small brick-paved rear patio whose back wall is covered in vines.

On the second floor, you’ll find a bedrooom, the bathroom and a rear deck accessed through French doors that lend it a European feel.

The top-floor bedroom has a sloping high ceiling and more French doors that open onto a Juliet balcony.

This home’s secluded location offers suburban quiet and urban convenience in one neat package. Inside, you can turn off the noise of the city; outside, all of the amenities that make city living worth it are at your feet. If you work in University City, this home is ideally located just steps from a bus line that heads to the Penn campus — it should come as no surprise that this home’s Walk, Bike and Transit Scores are all 96 or better.
