Trinity Tuesday: Double Feature in Fitler Square for $817K
If one spiral staircase isn’t enough for you, what about two?
This home is the largest and oldest on the block – and rightfully so. It has been completely remodeled and is the result of two trinity houses from 1816 combined into one.
Original 300-year-old white pine hardwood floors have been preserved throughout the entire house. On the first level, this double trinity features a foyer, a kitchen, and a sunlit dining and living area that boasts a gas fireplace and a floor-to-ceiling window overlooking a private garden: at 300 square feet, it’s the largest on the block, and a Southern magnolia tree provides shade. Two bedrooms and a bathroom can be found on the second level, which also features a wood-burning fireplace, a large closet, and big windows. The third level is home to the master bedroom with a wall-length closet, exposed brick walls, 18-foot ceilings, exposed original beams, and an additional loft area with a skylight. There is a rear bedroom and a bathroom on this level, as well.
The residence also features a finished basement that includes a powder room, laundry, and additional storage space. Oh, and those two independent staircases give this home the potential for a separate guest suite or rental unit (if that’s what your heart desires).
From a design perspective, this property is clearly not the best or newest. But, the potential is all there to turn this one-of-a-kind space into something even more fabulous. Located on a quiet street just half a block away from Fitler Square and one block from the Schuylkill River Park, this trinity house is as convenient and original as could be.
