South Kensington Extended Trinity House For Sale
This house has undergone a custom makeover that has given it a modern style with industrial-chic accents. It already had plenty of interior space thanks to this expansion.
The general rule is as follows: a young bachelor or a couple buys a nice trinity in one of the districts where they abound. Then (after their marriage, if they are single), their first child arrives. And soon after, they start thinking about buying a house with more space and more rooms.
The good news here is this: they can put off that day of reckoning a little longer if they buy this refurbished house in South Kensington’s extended trinity for sale. That’s because the expansion gave it nearly 1,300 square feet of above-ground interior space. What’s more, this space also includes three bedrooms and an equal number of bathrooms, which means that once the little one arrives, there will be no shortage of space or bathroom time.
The ground floor is full of space thanks to its open area. Forward, the saloon contains a coat rack and shoe storage by the door, a nook with built-in shelving and a wall perfect for mounting a big screen TV.
Past the powder room and through the archway is the dining room and the straight stairs to the second floor.
This dining room is one with the kitchen with dining area, which can accommodate four people around its island. This custom build features a butcher block on the island and quartz countertops everywhere else. It also features contemporary cabinetry, modern stainless steel appliances, a large farmhouse sink, and industrial style display/storage shelving above this sink.
The dining room and the kitchen have windows on one side. A door on this side leads to this alley which also leads to the street. As the listing agent notes, this gives you a place to store your rubbish and rubbish without the inside smelling.
The second floor contains two bedrooms and a full bathroom.
The back bedroom currently functions as a home office, while the L-shaped front bedroom has both a decent sized closet and a cubic storage cabinet.
The hall bath, recently updated like the other two, has a tub and shower lined with subway tile.
Traditional trinity stairs lead to the third floor master bedroom. It has a high vaulted ceiling with a ceiling fan, a closet with a storage slot above and its own private bathroom.
This bath has also been updated recently with a stall shower.
And underneath it all is a full unfinished basement, where you’ll find the laundry room and plenty of space to store your belongings.
This extended South Kensington trinity house for sale is also conveniently located. Great restaurants abound around, and there are even more in the adjacent Northern Liberties and Fishtown. You can walk to Avenue Girard, where you’ll find an Acme supermarket and neighborhood stores on 2nd Street and the Route 15 streetcar.
You can also walk to Front Street where you will find a number of restaurants, bars and brasseries as well as Girard station on the Market-Frankford line. And Cruz Playground, a half block west, provides space for that little one to play.
All of this means that whoever buys this trinity won’t need to get out of it any time soon.
