Lafayette Hill French Colonial-Style Homestead of a 'Master'


Let's take a brief ride out to Lafayette Hill, Montgomery County and check out a truly wonderful property with some interesting background newly listed for just under $2 million. This four bed, three and a half bath suburban estate was built by Marcolina Bros. — a famous masonry firm who also built the Houston and Woodward Homes in Chestnut Hill as well as worked on such buildings as the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Chestnut Hill Academy and the Albert M. Greenfield Estate. To top it off, this was the homestead of the 'Master' himself, Pierre "Pete" Marcolina. That's pretty darn cool. As you would expect from the home of a master craftsman, the French Colonial-style home is exquisite — featuring 1.6 acres of green, flowing grounds with multiple terraces and verandas, a courtyard with an "old world fountain," pinpoint brick and stucco work and also custom iron work. The interior is impeccably kept and features three fireplaces, a large finished basement, exposed beams, hardwood floors and plenty of places to entertain or relax. · 7 Andorra Hill Road, Lafayette, PA [Redfin]
