Trinity Tuesday: High Style in Rittenhouse for $529K
This home looks like no trinity you've seen before. That's because it's really a trinity and a half. The owners have done some very creative things with it.
Ordinarily, you couldn’t cut out part of a floor in a trinity to create a dramatic two-story-high light well over a dining room. First of all, the trinity wouldn’t be big enough to hold anything you’d call a “dining room,” and second, the light well would probably eat up all the space on one floor.
But when the trinity is actually a trinity and a half, like this Rittenhouse specimen, you can do all sorts of things you couldn’t do with a trinity.
The owners of this home have done them. And the result looks fabulous.
At the rear of the main floor living room, you’ll find that light well, with three large pendant lights hanging from the ceiling. The lights hang over the dining room below. The well also features an extra-large window that fills both rooms with natural light. Along with the painted brick wall, the balcony adds extra visual interest to the main floor.
The dining room is one with the handsome and spacious kitchen. The extra room means plenty of storage space for your wares and food. The exposed stone foundation, the brick walls and the fireplace stove make this space warm and inviting. The laundry and a powder room are just off the kitchen.
The second floor contains an unusual open two-bedroom arrangement, with the full bathroom separating the two. You can use this space as two bedrooms or make it a master suite.
The third floor can be configured as a bedroom, den, or home office.
Out back you’ll find a beautifully landscaped brick patio.
And around you you’ll find convenience: the shops and restaurants of South Street West are right around the corner and Rittenhouse Row shopping is a four-block stroll away. If you need to travel further, Lombard-South station on the Broad Street Line is a block away under the Avenue of the Arts.
