Philadelphia is a bustling city overflowing with activity, history, and culture. The 'City of Brotherly Love' is a city where many come to learn about the history of America's roots by touring Independence Hall, viewing the Liberty Bell, and visiting the house where Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence. What many visitors forget is that Philadelphia's history was written not just in a house that stood at Seventh and Market streets, but also in the neighborhoods where Philadelphians still live today.
While much of Philadelphia has been modernized and updated, some structures remain the same as they were in the 18th century when John Adams and Thomas Jefferson strolled through the streets of Philadelphia during the American Revolution. One of the things that makes Philadelphia unique is its architecture and real estate. Just one example of unique real estate is the Trinity houses of Philadelphia. Below is some more information on this uniquely Philadelphia structure and how it has survived the test of time.
What is a Trinity house?
A Trinity house is a three-story house with each floor containing one room. The Trinity house is believed to have originated in Philadelphia as early as the year 1720, and nearly 300 years later, Trinity houses are still found across the city of Philadelphia. Sometimes called 'Father, Son, and Holy Ghost' houses or 'Bandbox' houses, Trinity houses are typically quite small with an estimated 400-700 square feet of living space (our home has 700 sqft).
Please be aware that folks were smaller back in the 1700's when these homes were built. The stairs can be challenging if you are tall or have mobility issues. We own the listing #583380 which is located directly next door as well. There are more reviews for that property as we have been renting that one for a bit longer.

Place was great. Location was right near my daughter and her school on So. Broad. Very clean. Great brand new kitchen. Would stay again.
We enjoyed our cozy visit to Philly over Easter Break. The property is in a quiet alley in the historic district within walking distance of wonderful restaurants and sights. The owner, Josh, was very responsive and helpful in making our stay enjoyable.
Really enjoyed staying in this place with my wife and two of our friends. The house is really cute and it's so well situated in Philly; there's lots of restaurants, bars, and cafes nearby. The street that it's on (Panama St) is lined with beautiful red brick houses.
This townhouse is a perfect place to stay if you’re looking for the quintessential Philadelphia experience. The townhouse itself was charming and historical, but it is located within walking distance of new and trendy bars and restaurants, not to mention several tourist attractions. We were there for the Philadelphia marathon and staying in a townhouse rather than a hotel made it easier for me to prep for race. I was able to make my own dinner the night before the race as the kitchen is equipped with pots, pans, utensils, etc. Also, since the townhouse is in the middle of all the “action” it made it very easy for me to get to the starting line on race day.
The renting process was simple and the homeowners even shipped me my running shoes back to me after I forgot them!
I’d recommend this place to anyone looking to spend some time in Philadelphia looking to experience the city’s history while still being at the center of an urban environment.
I enjoyed staying with my colleagues in this home. It was excellent proximity to the convention center, shopping and restaurants. I also enjoyed an early morning run and stopping at a different coffee house each morning.
Exactly as pictured and as described by the owner and in the reviews. Historic house with enough room for 3 or 4 people but not much extra space. The new kitchen is very nice but you would have to be quite creative to have a family dinner in the house.
Apart from that and the tight stairs the house was very clean, warm and comfortable.
The neighborhood is outstanding. Beautiful streets of old houses with numerous coffee shops and restaurants. Many of the attractions of the city are within easy walking distance.
Highly recommended as a base to explore the city's sights and great restaurants. Less so if you plan to spend time staying in, cooking and eating at home.
Note: The street and cross-streets that the house is located on are extremely narrow, as pictured, with metal posts that prevent you from mounting the sidewalks, so if you are arriving in a large vehicle you might have difficulty getting it to the front door. Fine Parking on 11th St has some of the best rates nearby.
