On the Market: Classic Trinity in Wash West

Nobody has taken a census of them, but it seems to me that two Philadelphia neighborhoods duke it out for the title of Citywide Trinity Capital: Bella Vista and Washington Square West.

This week’s featured trinity sits in the latter neighborhood.

Located just off the Avenue of the Arts, this Wash West classic trinity house for sale is a pure example of the house type. These virtually staged photos give you an idea of what it could be.

Living room

A few steps take you up to the front door and the living room. It has a brick fireplace. And thanks to this house’s siting, it has windows in front and back that make it even brighter.

A kitchen with plenty of storage and counter space sits in the basement, below the living room.

Rear patio

A landing on the way down contains the back door, which leads to a good-sized rear patio.



The bedroom on the second floor has two closets.



The second floor also contains this house’s bathroom.

And the primary bedroom on the top floor also has windows on both sides as well as two closets and a beamed ceiling.

Besides the Avenue of the Arts, this house is also close to neighborhood shopping on South Street, Antique Row on Pine Street and Seger Playground on Lombard Street. Plenty of dining and drinking options also lie within walking distance. So does Washington Square itself.

You could move into this Wash West classic trinity house for sale as it is, but the listing agent advises that it actually could use a little fixing up to bring it to its full potential. You can use some of the money you will save buying this house over other nearby houses to do the fixing up.
