What a difference a year makes!

This 1920s trinity on a pedestrian-only block of South Darien Street in Bella Vista last changed hands in May of 2016 for $149,900.

It’s going for a little more than two and a half times that now. One look at the pictures should explain why, but we’ll spell it out for you:

This home isn’t the home that changed hands last year — it’s brand-new from top to bottom.

The makeover turned what was a typical South Philly trinity into a dazzler that would be right at home in Rittenhouse.

It has a super-stylish kitchen on its main floor with granite counters, stainless steel appliances that include a gas range and microwave, tile backsplashes and plenty of storage space in modern cabinets.

It also has something not commonly found in a trinity: a bathroom for each bedroom. The one in the top-floor master suite features dual vessel vanities and a Bluetooth-equipped shower for listening to your favorite tunes while inside.

The second floor is where you’ll find the laundry with its high-efficiency washer and dryer.

There’s a paved patio out back and a finished basement down below.

And the guts of this home, from the electrical system to the climate control, are all brand new too, as are the grey maple hardwood floors.

It also has its location going for it. This little bit of Rittenhouse Square lies just a half block from the Italian Market and a short stroll from South Street’s shops and restaurants.
