You know, it's the darnedest thing. Plenty of people commute from Fort Washington to Philly for work—it's what, 20 miles? Big deal. Plus, this house was designed by starchitect Rafael Viñoly, who has a staggering international reputation and, not incidentally for Philadelphia partisans, designed the Kimmel Center downtown. This residence is 40,000 square feet, and is plopped upon 70 acres. It's so castle-like, it has a tower. While some listings describe "amenties" like "a Jacuzzi tube in the master suite," the "amenities" listed for this house are:
· 20,000 square foot "playhouse"
· Indoor and outdoor tennis courts
· 4,000-bottle wine cellar
· Pool and a pool house
· 2 stone farm houses
· 3 bedroom apartment
Yes, $30 million may seem like a lot, but analysts say it's a buyers' market. That means you're getting this cheap. Buy now, and someday you'll sell this thing for $30 cachillion. Even if you don't, you can always lease it to the military to use as a fort.
