About this listing
Walking distance to almost everything, this house is an unique and historic way to experience Center City. Off a small street in a courtyard, you'll find a comfortable quiet spot, lovely neighbors, and a community garden across the way.
Unique downtown 3-story "Trinity" house in a historic courtyard on a small city street across from a community garden.
Trinities are rowhouses with three floors -- "father" (1st floor kitchen), "son" (2nd floor bedroom/bathroom), and "holy ghost" (3rd floor living room). The bedroom has a full bed and therefore could fit up to two people if shared or an air mattress can be used on the third floor. The stairs are spiral and the bathroom has a full bathtub and shower. The house is fully air conditioned with in-room units that can also be individually controlled.
My house is in a historic courtyard right in the heart of center city. The neighborhood is Washington Square West. There are lots of cafes, restaurants, bookstores and easy access to public transportation. You can also walk there from here -- one of the best things about living downtown!
There is a community garden across the street and friendly people coming and going at all times of the day and night. A very communal setting overall (although also private) staying here would give you a good sense of Philadelphia and this downtown neighborhood.
Please also note that In response to one 4/5s I received I have a professional cleaner come in now regularly so the place will be in tip-top shape for you!
House rule #1: No socks on the stairs! (It is highly recommended that you where slippers or go barefoot as the spiral staircase can be slippery when wearing socks.)
House rule #2: Respect the neighbors.
House rule #3: Please do not smoke in the house or in the shared courtyard. Thank you!
