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). While these houses were commonly used for families in past generations, in reflection of today's living standards, a Trinity house would be best for a young couple or roommates.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The home is beautiful, efficient and clean. The neighborhood is fantastic. My pugs loved that there was a nice, friendly dog park within walking distance. Highly recommend!
We stayed at this charming Trinity house mid-September for 5 nights. We absolutely loved our trip and this property. The weather was a perfect mid-70's to low 80's while we were there but we were still glad for the air-conditioning in the house. We arrived at the property around midnight our first night but it was no problem to get into the house with the lockbox. Everything was clean and charming inside and my husband and I had plenty of room for our things. The location can't be beat. We walked everywhere in Philadelphia and all the sights we wanted to see seemed like a short walk away. We rented a car for one day to visit Amish country and took the train to the airport to get a better rate on the car and longer more flexible hours on returning the car. The neighborhood felt safe and was very quiet. The washing machine and dryer worked great and the dishes/appliances provided in the kitchen were perfect for our breakfasting needs. As other reviewers have stated, the stairs are narrow and care should be taken going up/down them. I would definitely stay here again when we visit Philly in the future.
Our family of four adults was back to visit friends with our Labrador. The house was great! The location was ideal, great neighborhood with lots of restaurants and coffee shops but centrally located to walk to all the historical sites as well as the shopping areas. We walked everywhere. Our car was accessed only for going out of the city to the zoo and south Jersey to see friends The AC was appreciated. The kitchen was well outfitted. Eating for four for a sit down meal would be tough but we had no problems for breakfast and lunches. We would highly recommend the house and will use again on future visits if available. Also, great neighbors. Met a few over the days. Sitting out on the front steps fun way to have coffee and socialize. Would not recommend for elderly or people with limited mobility due to steps.
Full of charm. Perfect location. Great corner bar. Not for anyone with a functual handicap. Stairs steep and winding. We had a great time Thanks
We had an amazing time in this little gem of a house! The four of us (two adults and two children, ages 8 & 9) were comfortable and we absolutely adored the neighborhood. It is close to shopping, sights, restaurants, and parks, and an easy walk to the subway. Central Philly isn't particularly car-friendly, so we parked our car in a lot a few blocks away for the entirety of our stay. The house was well-appointed with everything we needed and the beds and bedding were very comfortable. We love the fact that we could bring our small dog, and he was happy to walk the streets of Philadelphia with us (there's even a cute dogpark just a short walk away). We would definitely stay again and highly recommend it.
This historic Philadelphia "Trinity House" secluded on a cobblestoned side street was a fabulous place to spend the Christmas Holidays. The old world colonial charm complemented by comfortable modern day convienences was a pleasure to come home to daily. The location was spectacular and the welcome basket was a much appreciated perk, especially the wine! We were within walking distance to great entertainment, restaurants, and shopping. The space is great for a couple but a little tight for a family of four with respect to meal times. There was only a table for 2 in the kitchen to share meals. However, we ate out a lot and worked out ways to use the space to share simple meals together. Despite the small dining area, any future family trips to Philadelphia will include this beautiful property again.
