A Hidden Gem in Plain Sight in Wash West for $410K
Located in a gated community right in the middle of Antique Row, this recently renovated trinity-plus offers extra space indoors and out.
Can you spot the trinity in the photo above?
That’s okay if you can’t, because there isn’t one. But see that archway where a storefront should be?
That’s the entrance to one of those secluded courtyards that you find sprinkled around Washington Square West. Next to that entrance is the extra-large four-story trinity-plus-one that’s the subject of this article.
Pinewood Court has a few homes like this one, but they rarely go on the market. One look at this very lived-in home and the courtyard it backs onto should give you an idea why.
This trinity got a total makeover in 2007 that gave it all-new hardwood floors, a wet bar in the main-floor living room, and a spiffy upgraded kitchen and bathrooms. You have your own private entrance to the courtyard in the rear of the living room.
You might note that that kitchen actually has enough room for you to put a dining table for four in it. That’s one of the advantages of this home’s unusually large footprint, large enough to dispense with the traditional trinity staircase.
If you’re thinking of starting a family, you might want to note something else: the presence of children in this home. It’s spacious enough for a young family and located in a good school district.
It’s also located smack in the middle of Antique Row. That in turn puts you in the middle of some of the best dining and shopping in all of Wash West. You’ll find two supermarkets two blocks to your south, the Gayborhood immediately to your north, Pennsylvania Hospital two blocks to your east, and the Avenue of the Arts three blocks to your west. Rittenhouse Row, Old City, the Reading Terminal Market and Chestnut Street are all a little further away but still within walking distance.
