This large stone Tudor in Abington Township was last sold in 2006 for $1.2 million, and its owner surely hoped to improve upon that price when it was first listed in 2011. No dice—despite almost three acres of land, the indoor pool, the billiard room, three separate patios, built-in speakers throughout, and multiple fireplaces. As Philadelphia suburbs go, Rydal doesn't necessarily have that Katherine Hepburn, Main Line-style prestige—though Wikipedia generously points out that Philly newscaster Larry Kane lives there. In this case, though, perhaps buyers are wary of the carpeting—because you never know what lies beneath. What will it take to get this house sold at or above $1 million?
