If what you’re looking for is a great investment property, you can ignore the part about waiting for the lease on this trinity duplex at 950 N. Randolph St., Philadelphia, Pa. 19123, to expire. Otherwise, take that into account before you buy this. In either case, you will be buying an attractive, well-maintained property that will produce income even if you live there. | Bright MLS images via Compass

Looking for a reasonably priced property in Northern Liberties that you can call home?

Well, you can’t call this well-kept Northern Liberties duplex house for sale home just yet, for both the trinity in front and the house in back are currently leased to tenants. But if you’re willing to wait until the lease is up, or if you’re looking for an income property, this twofer should prove just right for you.

The building you see above is the trinity. The accessory apartment is the white building at the back.

The trinity is one of those expanded models, with a two-story ell attached to its rear.

Its main floor contains the living room and kitchen.

The living room’s white walls intensify the ample light that pours through its front windows.

And the kitchen has been upgraded recently with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and bar seating at its peninsula. This means you can entertain guests here easily.

Second-floor bedroom

The second floor contains one of its two bedrooms, the laundry and the bathroom.

And the top floor has a bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and two closets.

The only thing this trinity lacks is outdoor space, and that’s because its rear yard is the province of the apartment in the rear.

This two-story, one-bedroom unit has a living room that rises a floor and a half, with the house’s staircase adding visual appeal.

Five large windows facing the rear yard fill this living room with light too.

Its kitchen also got a recent update, and in an unusual arrangement, it appears to be located on the second floor.

The stairway landing also has room for a desk, and while I can’t say this for sure, the bathroom looks like it also can be found on this level.

But even if the trinity has no outdoor space of its own, there are parks and outdoor gathering places within a short walk. These include Liberty Lands Park, down Poplar Street to the east, the East Poplar Recreation Center to the west, and the hidden gem known as Orkney Park a mere block and a half away.

The beauty of this setup is that even after you move in, you will have another resident who will help pay your mortgage. And even if you don’t move into this Northern Liberties duplex house for sale, you will be able to enjoy the extra income it will bring you.
