We’ve reached peak Society Hill charm with this Trinity that just hit the market: Not only is is located on a cobblestone street, but has great curb appeal and packs in plenty of character into 819 square feet.
The two-bedroom, one and a half-bath home is a quick walk away from Washington Square and sits pretty among a short row of homes on Cypress Street with a bright red door. Like a true Trinity, the front door opens to the second-floor living room, complete with one of the home’s two working fireplaces.
The traditional wooden spiral staircase has been replaced with a metal one, which winds down to the kitchen on the lower level. It’s been recently updated, and is big enough to fit in a dining table. Although there are new appliances and cabinetry, the room retains much of its original character, from the Belgian block floors to the exposed stone wall to the second, brick fireplace. This lower level clocks in at 285 square feet, which isn’t included in the 819 square footage.
You’ll find the bedrooms and the two baths on the upper levels. The biggest bedroom on the third floor manages to fit in the half bath, and there’s a tiny loft space above if you need extra storage.
The asking price of the home is $524,900.
