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. They are very steep winding.

***There are pluses and minuses to each of our properties and we want to make sure you select the one that you and your group will enjoy the most. Please see short summaries below with the pros and cons of each of our properties below.

The Chestnut Lofts ...HomeAway # 179041 (faces rear of building)

The Chestnut Lofts is located is located in Old City which although is steps away from the liberty bell and independence hall also has a very lively night time scene with cafes and restaurants and bars. The pros of this unit is that it is located on the top floor of a 5 story building and oriented facing south toward a parking garage not facing chestnut street so it's much much quieter. Drawbacks being there isn't a waterfront view as you have in the front unit, it doesn't have those huge 20 foot ceilings and the main bedroom is a platform style (the second bedroom is fully enclosed). Please see link here for full listing. https://www.vrbo.com/141917

The Chestnut Lofts ...VRBO # 477685 (faces front of building)

This unit does have a water view, has soaring 20 foot ceilings and gets great sunlight. The drawbacks being it's located on Chestnut St so noise can be an issue especially on a weekend night. Please see link for full listing. https://www.vrbo.com/477685

(Panama St )Cozy Home in Historic Washington Square ...HomeAway # 3165419

This home is located directly next to our other home listing #583380 (Townhouse in Washington Sq) on a quiet cobblestone walking street. Both homes are nearly identical although "Townhouse in Washington Sq" was recently remodeled with a new kitchen and new bathroom. On the upside it has a washer and dryer where the other does not. You can not be more centrally located than this, very easy walk to Rittenhouse Square, Washington Square, 13th and Sansom as well as Old City. The location is hard to beat. Drawback wise these places are small and they have very challenging stairs.

(Panama St) Townhouse in Washington Square ...VRBO # 583380

Please see above summary

Charming on Historic Street ... VRBO # 619713

My personal favorite of all our properties. This home is located 258 S. Quince street, if you google images of "Quince street Philadelphia" you will see it has been the subject of many a painting and photograph. The street with all it's cute little walking streets and off shoots is very European/ Old World. It's very tough to drive a car down, more of a cobblestone walking street, making it very quiet, almost an oasis in the middle of the busy city. It's still not too far from the historic sites but certainly not as close as The Chestnut Lofts are. It also has a private back patio with table and 4 chairs. Although it is a trinity, its much larger than the ones we have on Panama st. Drawback wise, Id say it has a lot of stairs and could be an issue for a toddler or someone that has any sort of mobility issue. Please see link for full listing. https://www.vrbo.com/619713

Great stay in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit to Philadelphia and this started with a great place to stay. The location is in the heart of the Arts District and is a quick walk to a ton of great locations. Mr. Russell was extremely helpful and very responsive. The trinity home is a great place to stay and the locale makes you feel right at home! We loved our stay! .

Great Location and Just as stated in summary!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this location! The property is just as it states, it was a little odd having main rooms on different floors and definitely would not work for people with trouble climbing stairs. It worked great for my husband and I, we really weren’t there very much, as we did a lot of sight seeing. It was great to have Dirty Franks right around the corner for some evening drinks and laughter!!

Clean cozy and good location

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and cozy. Stairs are narrow and steep but we managed them fine. Enjoyed the historic atmosphere of the home. Very quiet neighborhood even though near several entertainment locations. Within walking distance of a lot of historic sites. Will definitely stay again if we return to Philadelphia.

Great little Place, Great location

  • 5 of 5

Great little place in a great location. Pretty quiet street considering how much is within walking distance. Except for trash day but that only last a few minutes. Very clean and comfortable and the host were wonderful to work with. I would return again for sure. The stairwells are small so someone over 6 foot tall would be able to maneuver but would have to duck. Big Thumbs Up!

Great Property, Great Neighborhood, Philly is an underrated city

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this place. Hard to stay a long time because those stairs are difficult to navigate, but it's definitely a special place. The neighborhood is amazing, literally too many restaurants and bars to choose from. It's almost perfectly located between the historic and commercial sections of the city. The only negative is that sit down meals are not practical due to the layout; 4 levels with the kitchen in the basement. Honestly though, you should be going out for dinner anyway (the a fore mentioned restaurants). Breakfast and snacks are fine with the TV trays on the second floor. A lot of places cheap out with the streaming TV only, this place has the full cable (I always like to watch the local news to get a feel for the city) so that was a nice touch. Would definitely stay there again. Traffic in Philly is great so Uber/Lyft is cheap.

A good home base for site seeing

  • 4 of 5

Great location, house is clean and charming but those steps are definitely challenging especially for anyone taller than 5'4" or so.
