This attractive trinity has just enough room in the back to make it ideal for entertaining – or for a small family.
Anyone who lives in a trinity and enjoys receiving friends quickly learns that:
- If you want to invite more than a handful of people, make sure you don’t invite them all at the same time.
- You can forget about dinner parties unless you’re single and want to invite a special someone over for an intimate meal.
- Or, in many cases, you’ll just have to entertain yourself at nearby restaurants.
There are, however, some trinities where these rules do not quite apply. Most of these trinities look like this Queen Village extended lane trinity home for sale.
The extension – in this case a two story rear addition that includes an extension to the basement – is what makes this home a place of entertainment.
However, not all of these extensions work as well as this one. Some nail separate rooms to the ground floor, for example. Not this one: Her living room is a unique open space with a functional fireplace and large windows to the rear that let in lots of natural light. This ample space means you can accommodate additional guests.
And at the end of the living room, a terrace allows you to party outside in good weather.
Downstairs, the extension has added space to the kitchen, transforming it into a real dining area that can accommodate four people. And in addition to the dining area, you get up-to-date stainless steel appliances, plenty of cupboards and an open-shelf pantry, a lovely blue subway tile backsplash, and a working second fireplace.
The extension also made possible two bedrooms, each with a bathroom on their floor.
The second floor bathroom is in an alcove and has a beautiful modern vanity as well as the utility room.
The bedroom on the top floor sticks its closet between its windows.
It also has a small full bathroom, making it the main one.
Its sloping ceiling might make it claustrophobic if it weren’t for what’s outside, next to this bathroom: a private back patio that overlooks the leafy backyards of Fitzwater Street homes and the row of newer homes next to this row on Fulton.
This Queen Village extended lane Trinitarian home for sale and its neighbors are all older than this row of homes facing the street and the one below, which you pass to reach its secluded lane.
And for those times when you don’t feel like entertaining your friends at home, there are plenty of places to meet them all around you, from the New Wave Cafe and Red Hook Coffee and Tea to the restaurants of Bainbridge Green. . And even more great places to eat and hang out can be found further afield on South Street, Head House Square, Little Saigon and around the Italian Market.
Another type of owner might find this extended trinity appealing as well: a young couple interested in raising a child in the city. With two spacious bedrooms and a large dining kitchen, they would have enough room for their first little one – and enough room to raise them there until they were old enough to enter the much sought after William M. Meredith School, whose watershed this house is located at.
