Just Listed: Renovated Trinity in Rittenhouse Square
This polished gem is one of those rarities: a Rittenhouse Square house you can afford.
Do you have dreams of living in a home of your own in Rittenhouse Square?
An actual house, that is, not a condo?
Pinch yourself, then, for a Rittenhouse Square house that you can actually afford just came on the market.
Namely, this Rittenhouse Square renovated trinity for sale in the 1700 block of Rodman Street.
As you should know, this department usually doesn’t run photos of empty rooms. But the owners did such a bang-up job of renovating and updating this house that the empty rooms speak for themselves.
Exposed brick helps them speak as loud as furniture. So does the unusual main-floor living room, where a light well delivers light and a metal spiral staircase leads down to the kitchen below.
That alteration also frees up the space in the basement where the old stairs used to touch down. That was turned into a utility closet and laundry. The kitchen, meanwhile, got polished to the same high gloss as the hardwood floors upstairs. It has plenty of storage space, too.
You’ll find more exposed brick, this time unpainted, in the top-floor primary bedroom. It has ample closet space and a door that lets you close off the stairway leading to this room.
The bedroom on the floor in between has a built-in bookcase, which makes it a great candidate for a work-from-home office.
And the bathroom looks unusually spacious for a trinity. It also has full marble tile walls.
But what about outdoor space? This house has no private rear patio, but you can use the gated park for block residents that sits at the 17th Street end of the block. And, of course, you’re three-and-a-half blocks away from Center City’s great outdoor living room.
You will find plenty of pleasant diversions, including great restaurants and interesting shops, around Rittenhouse Square, on Rittenhouse Row and on even closer South Street West.
But perhaps the nicest amenity this Rittenhouse Square renovated trinity house for sale has to offer is its asking price. “Buy the cheapest house on an expensive block in a great location,” the listing agent exhorts. I couldn’t agree with her more. Affordable (for Center City) housing in Rittenhouse Square — who knew?
