Step Inside Majestic Lynnewood Hall, Now Asking $20M


All photos via Austin H.We have something special for you today. Austin H., you know him as @AustinXC04 on Instagram, took these interior shots of Lynnewood Hall sometime last year and graciously allowed us to share them with you. There were a variety of responses when we brought you the news that Lynnewood Hall in Elkins Park was now for sale for $20 million. Most of you were stunned, and lamented that Horace Trumbauer's Gilded Age masterpiece has been left to rot for all of these years. Others pondered the hefty price tag and potential development options for the 33 acre site. The vast majority of you, however, mentioned that it was a shame that you had never gotten to see the inside. You had let your imagination run wild through the years, dreaming of its majestic interior during lavish parties and celebrations, French tapestries and nearly unrivaled art collection while you peered at the derelict mansion through its weathered gates. Yes, it's a far, faaaar cry from it's heydey. We beg of you, take a moment, examine each photo carefully and you'll still see many fine workings of master craftsmen of a bygone era and the bones of an estate that — at one time — had it all.
