Looking for intimacy? It’s hard to beat a classic Philadelphia trinity.

But how about a trinity on a street so small, it doesn’t even show up on online maps? Now that’s real intimacy.

Strictly speaking, this trinity isn’t a classic of the type. For starters, it’s a young one, built in 2008. As a result, you won’t find the trademark tight spiral staircase in it. That’s good news for you and your mattress. (Sort of: you may find it harder to get that mattress down this very narrow pedestrian lane and into your front door than you will getting it up the stairs.)

What you will find is an attractive, up-to-date home with enough room and style to please you and yours, as well as your intimate friends.



The dine-in kitchen is on the first floor, and it’s a looker with its mahogany cabinets, black granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and island.


An equally up-to-date bathroom and the smaller bedroom are on the second floor.



The full-floor bedroom on the third floor includes an attractive display shelf, a large closet and a Juliet balcony with sliding glass doors.


The finished basement contains the laundry and can be outfitted for entertaining or relaxation. If you’re the type who likes to have many guests over, you could make a living room out of the top-floor bedroom.

Or you could entertain them at one of the coffee shops and restaurants that dot the Italian Market, which is on the next street to your west. You can roll out of bed and be at Sabrina’s Cafe in a minute.

Schell Street

And you won’t have to worry about unwanted guests disturbing the peace, either — that narrow pedestrian lane has only one way in and out.
