Just Listed: Updated Trinity in Queen Village
This handsome trinity comes with both a kitchen ell and a basement that add both utility and style.
Trinities, as we all know, are cult items: Those who love them really love them, while everyone else just shrugs and moves on.
And one of the reasons trinity owners move on is because they find they’ve outgrown their space. Three events tend to trigger this revelation: marriage, children and the accumulation of stuff.
Today’s featured trinity will probably take its buyer longer to get to those trigger points, because it has two features often found together in trinities, but not necessarily together.
This Queen Village updated trinity house for sale has both a kitchen ell in the back and a basement.
If you’re considering buying a trinity, these features make this house more comfortable and accommodating for you, your guests, and even your family once it grows beyond two people, at least for a while.
The kitchen ell makes it more accommodating for entertaining because when this house got updated recently, it was combined with the main-floor living room to create a single open space.
That open-plan space makes it feel less claustrophobic than some trinity living rooms feel, and it also makes it brighter.
That’s because it gets light both from the large double-hung window in front and the even larger French doors leading to the rear patio.
It also gets extra style from its beamed ceiling and its working gas fireplace.
The open-plan space also makes the kitchen roomier — roomy enough to include an island. That island is mounted on wheels, which means you can move it out of the way if you want to serve a meal to more than two people. For just two people, you can use the island’s drop leaf.
The upper floors follow the standard trinity lay0ut: bedroom and bathroom on the second floor, primary bedroom on the top floor.
The second-floor bedroom has a decorative fireplace, while the bathroom has also gotten a recent upgrade.
And on the top floor, the primary bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and gets extra character from its two exposed-brick walls.
These things should be enough for you to handle your spouse and your first child. For the accumulation of stuff, there’s plenty of storage space and a laundry in the unfinished basement.
And to top it all off, this house is ideally located near 2nd and Christian streets. That means you can find great dining, shopping, recreational opportunities and coffee all within a short walk from your front door. South Street, Head House Square, the Delaware riverfront and Washington Avenue all lie very close at hand, and the Italian Market is just a little further away.
All this means that this Queen Village updated trinity house for sale is a great place for you to start a family and enjoy city living while you do it. What’s more, it’s quite affordable by not only Queen Village but also starter-house standards.
