The 2000 block of Latimer Street at Rittenhouse Square seems to be more comfortable among the “small streets” of Washington Square West. It has the same intimate character as these narrow lanes, and also like them it is lined with trinities like this renovated Rittenhouse Square extended trinity house for sale.

This stands at the east end of a row of nine identically styled stucco clad trinities which are distinguished from each other by the color of their wooden window frames, cornices and doors. This is also one of those homes where the year built field in the property data sheet is clearly incorrect.

It becomes much clearer once you enter the house. The quality of its cherry hardwood floors and inlays, the detailing and styling of the door frames, and the arched multi-light windows in the back wall and downstairs front door are just too intricate. so that this house was built in 1960. So, by the way, are the cornices on the facade. I suspect that in the 1910s, or later in the 1920s, it’s more accurate.

But whatever. When this house was recently renovated, all of that woodwork was refinished and renewed. And everything else has become much more modern.

Kitchen

Granite countertops, contemporary black cabinetry, mosaic tiled backsplash, and stainless steel appliances (including a Fisher & Paykel DishDrawer) are definitely aware. They are also included in the sale.

Also note that this is one of those rare trinities with straight stairs. These will make it easier to move your own furniture upstairs.

It is also unusual to have two outdoor spaces and the potential for a third. The first of these is this pretty brick patio at the back of the main floor. A door in the corner which contains part of the kitchen leads to it.

Both bedrooms have ample storage space in the form of fitted wardrobes, built-in shelves and cupboards under the windows (and above them on the top floor).

Main bathroom

The main bathroom has all modern fixtures and a shower stall. The renovation also installed a washer and dryer (also included in the sale) in one of the bathrooms.

And the house has room to grow both downwards and upwards. A hatch under the stairs from the ground floor to the second floor leads to a fully excavated basement which offers storage space or could be converted into additional living space. (If you’re doing the latter, you should consider installing an appropriate staircase to that basement.)

Something else this remodeled Rittenhouse Square Expanded Trinity Home For Sale has in common with its Wash West analogues is a very convenient location. It is just two blocks from the square itself and around the corner from the restaurants and neighborhood shops of South 20th Street. A pleasant stroll down the square puts you in the heart of the shopping and dining district of Rittenhouse Row, along Walnut and nearby streets.

So not only do you get traditional style and modern comfort, you also get the best of both worlds: the privacy of Wash West and the sophistication of Rittenhouse Square.
