It’s been a while since we featured a trinity house for sale on this channel.

Thus, we were pleased when agent Eric Gerchberg of OCF Realty dropped this cutie in our lap.

The trinity remains a unique-to-Philadelphia house type, and when one goes on the market, it often has a price tag that makes it just right for someone looking for that first house to buy.

This is one of those trinities.

This one is a classic example of the type. It has no extensions and no rear kitchen ell. It’s just four rooms and a bath, each room stacked atop the other.

Living room

The people who renovated this house gave every one of its above-ground rooms a splash of exposed brick. In the living room and the second-floor bedroom, it takes the form of a compact fireplace.

That second-floor bedroom makes more sense as a den, home office or study, which is how the current owner uses it.

The top-floor bedroom has ample closet space and a vaulted ceiling.

Kitchen

And in the basement you’ll find the eat-in kitchen and laundry. Like every other room in this house for sale, it makes very efficient use of space and has been nicely updated.

Rear patio

There’s even a compact patio in the rear, accessed from an alleyway next to the house.

And the makeover gave it a touch of high tech: you can control both the climate control system and the lighting in every room from your smartphone.

Not only will you be smart if you start your adventure in homeownership here, you’ll be sitting pretty, as the Piazza, Liberties Walk, North Second Street’s restaurant row, neighborhood shopping and convenient SEPTA transit all lie just a short walk away.
