Just Listed: Trinity Designed for Entertaining in Queen Village
You'll find an actual dining room in the ell where the kitchen usually resides. This makes it one of those rare trinities that can accommodate a dinner party.
If you’re a fan of the Philadelphia trinity but also enjoy having friends over for dinner, your options are pretty limited.
You could look for an expanded or double trinity with a larger main floor.
Or you could simply not buy a trinity.
Here’s your third option.
This charming trinity just off South Street in Queen Village has an unusual layout that makes it suitable for dinner parties.
It’s this: A dining room in the skylit first-floor ell.
Usually, this is where they stick the kitchen in most trinities of this type. But the full kitchen here is in the back of the main-floor living room.
And it has ample cabinet and counter space for you to prepare a fine repast for six.
This house has this layout because it’s deeper than most typical trinities. It has 1,000 square feet of interior space, which is about twice what the traditional trinity contains.
This means that its bathroom on the second floor lies off an actual landing and is separate from the second-floor bedroom.
It also means an extra-large third-floor master bedroom with extra closet space.
You’ll find laundry facilities and storage space in the unfinished basement.
And you’ll find Isaiah Zagar murals greeting you as you round the corner on the way to this house.
We don’t need to tell you how convenient this location is, do we? You can walk to just about everything you need or want from here: Head House Square, the Italian Market, the supermarkets at 10th and South, dining and nightlife galore. Two nearby SEPTA bus routes can take you to those places you can’t walk to.
