Trinity Tuesday: Wash West Home Boasts Prized Garden, Dormer Bedroom
As a kid, attics seemed like a cool place to have a bedroom: far away enough to enjoy total privacy, but still within the safety of my own home. The second bedroom in this Washington Square West trinity reminds me of such a space. It’s not an attic, but it is a dormer room with original kings-width plank flooring and a roomy closet area on the top floor.
The rest of the home is just as charming. It’s a rehabbed residence on cobblestoned South Jessup Street with no through-traffic, has a prize-winning rear patio garden, as deemed by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society in their City Gardens contest, and has a freshly finished basement with built-in storage, new hot water heater, and Bosch washer and dryer. A farmhouse sink and newer stainless fridge can be found in the kitchen, where there’s also a Capital gas range with vented hood.
