When we first wrote about this 1909 carriage house that was originally the gate house to Dr. George Woodward's Krisheim Estate, the asking price was $635,000—down from $835,000 when it first hit the market. The house is essentially on top of Fairmount Park and the Wissahickon, and new photos reveal how it looks when it snows: It's a winter wonderland! Add to that the gorgeous period woodwork—including the engraved "Krisheim" over the door—and the connection to Woodward, Chestnut Hill's founding father, and it seems like a sure bet.
While renters compete to spend even half a lease in Woodward rentals, this residence—where he actually touched things like banisters—has been on the market since last spring. Perhaps this price point—and those snowy photos—will do it.
