Trinity Tuesday: An All-New Trinity in Graduate Hospital for $595K

You read that right: an all-new trinity. With a huge roof deck and plenty of 21st-century luxury. They sure don't build 'em like they used to.

Thought the trinity was a house type of the past?

We sure did, until this 21st-century trinity on steroids came to our attention.

Check it out: this home on a corner lot in Graduate Hospital actually meets the ground rules for the classic Philly trinity: one room per floor (bathrooms excluded), stacked one on top of the other.

But it’s definitely a modern home, with the usual modern bells and whistles. In fact, it probably qualifies as what might seem like an oxymoron outside Society Hill: a luxury trinity.

Take a look at the semi-buried basement kitchen, for instance. See that wine fridge in the island? Not something you’d find in an entry-level home.

Or check out that marble tile shower with rain head and handheld spray.

Or that glass-railed roof deck with a great 360-degree view of the city.

Or those walk-in closets in the master bedroom.

Did we just write “master bedroom”? In a trinity? Yep, this one has one.

And there’s more good news: One feature this home lacks is the trademark extraordinarily narrow and tight spiral staircase. You’ll be able to haul your bed frame and box spring up the L-shaped staircase with little difficulty.

“Pictures or description will not do justice!” reads the breathless one-paragraph description of this rare bird on the OCF Realty website. Actually, we think the pictures do give you a good idea of what you will get with this huge modern trinity.
