It doesn’t get much more charming than Trinity homes, so it’s no surprise that they have become highly popular among people looking to downsize, reduce their carbon footprint, and enjoy living in the city affordably.
Well-loved by Philadelphians long before the popular tiny house movement, Trinity homes were originally built for the servants of wealthy families. The quirky home style is notable for having just one room per floor, and they tend to be small in square footage too (often under 1,000 square feet).
While they’re small in space, they more than make up for it in character! Many Trinity homes offer original hardwood flooring, wood beams, and architectural elements. They tend to be located on some of the smallest, quaintest streets in the city, especially in areas like Society Hill and Olde City.
Plus, Trinity homes are only made cooler by the fact that they’re unique to Philadelphia — in fact, you’re unlikely to find a single Trinity anywhere else in the nation!
