Own the Braun Estate in Mt. Airy's Historic Pelham District


The Historic Pelham District in Mt. Airy boasts some of the most architecturally impressive homes in the area. Chances are good that if you've toured the area around Pelham Rd., Hortter St., Carpenter Ln. or Germantown Ave., you've longed to lay your head in one of these amazing residences. Enter 232 Pelham Rd., legendary manufacturer William M.P. Braun's 6-bed, 5-bath beauty of estate that just hit the market over the weekend. Listed at $1.125M, it sits on a lush, one acre lot that's tough to find in the city.The stone facade, wrap-around porch and columns are certainly gawk-worthy exterior attributes, but just open the front door to see the real stunner: A beautifully crafted staircase wrapped in intricate oak, mohagany and cherry wood carvings and panels, stained glass and a chandelier. The rest of the 7,695 square foot manor is equally impressive with the modern, yet rustic, kitchen as a must-see as well. · 232 Pelham Road, Philadelphia [Estately]
