Trinity Tuesday: “Coolest” and “Carpeted”–Two Words Rarely Seen Together

trinity tuesday logoThis is an unusual property for two reasons: 1. It got a price increase rather than a decrease, and 2. the listing for it includes these words: “with the coolest carpeted spiral staircase.” Price increases aren’t extremely common, but sometimes when a seller switches brokers, the new broker will say the seller can get more than the prior broker advised. In this case, this expanded trinity was originally offered at $205,000. With a change of brokerage, the asking price is now $249,900. So what does a new owner get for that quarter mil aside from the newly trendy carpeted spiral staircase?

The house was upgraded this year after a 2005 renovation, so there’s a new hot water heater, wiring and electric service. The first floor has hardwood floors, and the home has two bathrooms. Also, there’s a fragment of a man in one of the photos. It’s not clear whether said fragment is included.

Philly trinities tend to be in Society Hill almost exclusively. Here’s one in a radically different neighborhood–right near East Girard–which is kind of exciting.
