Just Listed: Trinity with a Unique Angle in Fairmount

Located on one of greater Center City’s more picturesque streets, this updated trinity follows tradition, but with a twist — and the twist isn’t in its staircase.

Note the relationship between this updated trinity at 560 N. Judson St., Philadelphia, PA 19130 and the house to its south.

Like the 250 block of South Quince Street or the 300 block of South Camac Street in Washington Square West, the 600 block of North Judson Street near the Art Museum in Fairmount is one of the most picturesque “little streets” in Center City and environs.

The 500 block of North Judson Street

One of its distinctive qualities is its bendy nature. At its south end, it runs perpendicular to Pennsylvania Avenue, but in short order, it turns 45 degrees to follow the city grid before making a 90-degree turn to empty onto North 23rd Street.

This Fairmount updated trinity house for sale lies right at that 45-degree bend. And its location gives it the feature that sets it apart from just about every other trinity in the city:

Namely, a facade that turns every floor of it into a trapezoid.

Staircase in foyer

That shape gives its main floor something most trinities lack: A foyer. In that foyer you will find a straight staircase that fits into the 45-degree-angled southeast corner of the house. Note also the small china cabinet built into that 45-degree angle.

The second floor contains the living room and a hall bath.



And the bedroom on the top floor has enough room that you can stick a home office space in it.

This Fairmount updated trinity house for sale also has an unfinished basement where you will find laundry facilities and storage space. And it sits in the middle of one of the city’s most interesting neighborhoods. In addition to the Art Museum, Eakins Oval and Fairmount Park, you will find a wide array of restaurants, bars, neighborhood shopping and public transit options within walking distance.

All these things make this trinity with a twist in Fairmount a very attractive buy, whether you’re looking for a place to live or a place to rent to others.
