This section had an occasional feature titled “Why won’t this sell?” This department would feature a home that had languished on the market for an unusually long time, like this townhouse on Delancey Street in Rittenhouse Square that had been on the market for 472 days when we featured it, and speculate on why no one is showing it. had bought again – or give reasons why someone should buy it.

Well, in today’s market, when trinities become active one week and contracted the next week, 119 days “languish”.

And that’s how long this renovated Bella Vista Trinity home for sale has been on the market.

So: Why has this trinity not yet found its buyer?

My opinion: Because there is only one room.

The ground floor houses the living room and has the classic trinity look and feel. Varnished pine floors and exposed brick above the fireplace add character. In place of the boxed spiral staircase, however, is an open steel spiral staircase that will make transporting your bedding a breeze. A remote-controlled skylight on the top floor brings natural light into this stairwell.



Part even trickles down to the basement kitchen. The eat-in kitchen features traditional cabinetry, Corian countertops, terracotta tile flooring, a large pantry, and a stacked washer and dryer.

As this renovated Bella Vista trinity home for sale sits on a narrow lane with only one entrance and exit, you will enjoy more peace and quiet than many of your neighbors.
