Fireplaces, wood beams and charm abound in this extra-large, well-maintained trinity that’s set up so you can work from home.

This handsome historic trinity is located in that close-to-the-river section of Queen Village where Colonial-era trinities abound. What’s more, many of these are deeper than the typical trinity. This house at 624 S. American St., Philadelphia, Pa. 19147, is one of those. | Bright MLS images via Long & Foster Real Estate

If you’ve been working from home for the past year or so, you may be able to deduct the cost of keeping up your office from your taxes. (Consult a tax professional for advice before doing this, though.)

But if you live in a typical trinity, you may not be able to do this because IRS rules require that your workspace be used exclusively for work purposes. That desk in your bedroom won’t cut it.

Taking that deduction won’t be a problem in this historically certified Queen Village double trinity house for sale, though. That’s because its extra depth allows its second floor to be split into two rooms.

The extra depth also means you can comfortably entertain guests.

The laundry and a small half bath are also located in the basement.

The bedroom in the middle has a hardwood floor and the third working fireplace.

Finally, the top floor lies under the house’s peaked roof, which gives it a cathedral ceiling accented by a wood-beam frame.

In addition to its amenities, this Queen Village double trinity house for sale also has an outstanding location going for it. It’s located just off South Street, one block from Bainbridge Green, two from Head House Square and three from the pedestrian bridge that crosses I-95 to take you to the Delaware riverfront. SEPTA bus service to points further away also lies close at hand.

All this makes this house an ideal choice for anyone who intends to keep working from home even after their offices reopen.
