Today’s entry in the “good things come in small packages” file may well have established a new category of residences:

The luxury trinity.

What’s that? This Wash West expanded trinity house for sale is its own definition.

Living room

That’s because its owner has not only maintained it well over the years but also added some very nice details and amenities to it, not to mention an extension to its rear that gives it extra space.

In terms of style and decor, it speaks Colonial fluently. Crown molding, wide-plank Schuylkill pine floors and a gas fireplace with a custom classic mantel make the living room a thing of beauty, and in the addition behind it, you will find a study that makes a perfect home office.

Down below, the eat-in kitchen has high-end features you usually have to pay more than this to get. These include a Liebherr refrigerator, a professional-quality range and a 40-bottle, dual-zone wine cooler. There’s also a flat-screen HDTV built into the corner utility closet door, under-cabinet lighting and extra storage space under the stairs.

One floor up from the main floor you’ll find a room with another gas fireplace that can be used as a guest bedroom or den. Two spacious California closets frame the floor landing.

And it has a primary bathroom worthy of its own magazine spread. Its oversized shower, lined with Spanish tile, features body sprays, a rain head and a Velux skylight through which you can gaze at the stars while you shower.

In addition to the common courtyard, this trinity has a flagstone patio behind it with custom lighting and space for a café table for outdoor dining.

With all these fabulous amenities, this house qualifies as “luxury you can afford.” And what’s around it makes it even more attractive.

This historically certified expanded trinity house for sale sits on one of Wash West’s prized ”little streets,” smack in the middle of the Gayborhood, close to the Avenue of the Arts, and just steps away from great dining on Spruce, Locust and Walnut streets, neighborhood retail on 10th Street, and two supermarkets at 10th and South. Not to mention the Reading Terminal Market, just a little further away but still within walking distance.



BATHS: 1 full, 1 half


SALE PRICE: $459,000

OTHER STUFF: Given all the things that are within walking distance plus the availability of SEPTA transit nearby, you should be able to live here car-free. But if you do need a parking space, this house comes with one. It’s a deeded parking space in a gated lot at 12th and South streets, and it can be yours for an additional $70,000.
