One of Philly's historical Trinities in the heart of Rittenhouse Square! Super cute & tastefully decorated in one of the best neighborhoods. 2 blocks from South Street, 3 blocks from the Ave of the Arts- this cozy retreat is in close proximity to everything. Trinities, also know as Father, Son and Holy Ghost or bandbox houses, are known for efficiency of space and a spiral staircase. These steps have been climbed for long enough to warrant a place on Philadelphia's Historical Registry.

The space
This is a very cute historical property. I hope you all love it as much as I do!

Location

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States

Rittenhouse square is thought to be one of the best areas in Philadelphia. With the park 2 blocks to the north you have a ton of restaurants, festivals and shopping; South St two blocks to the south with more festivals, great restaurants and great shopping; the Avenue of the Arts theater district three blocks to the east, and West Philly with all of the hospitals and universities, restaurants, shopping, etc. just a handful of blocks west, you could not be more centrally and ideally located.

My family and I have lived in West Philadelphia for 9+ years. We moved here from Fishtown where I used to own and operate a local cafe'. I sold it in 2016, and have moved on to renovating houses and other interesting properties. I am very involved in real estate so please feel free to pick my brain about neighborhoods or properties. I have been a working artist for many, many years now- both teaching and building architectural stained glass. I own a historic fire station and am converting it into art studio spaces, to house my new glass studio and several other spaces for other artists. I have 2 children who are wonderful, smart and funny, 1 lovely cat(domestic short hair calico) and one adorable pup(Catahoula Leopard/Australian Shepard mix). I am fastidious about our beloved pets, so you would hardly know they were here, except for the occasional paths crossing with me and Coco(my pup) on our many, many walks during the day! They stay in our separate apt and have never been upstairs in the guest suite, so come with confidence. We love to travel, love good food, and generally love life in the city. A beautiful family, good friends, a fantastic neighborhood, a nice life... I am blessed for sure!

During your stay
I am a long time Philadelphia resident and am on hand for questions and help pretty much all of the time. I try to be polite to my family and friends when we are together, so I do not generally look at my phone if I am with company, but will respond to any inquiry as soon as possible. Please feel free to ask for recommendations for restaurants, kids activities, or local art exhibits!
