There's not much we know about this stone-walled beauty, besides the few scant details offered on its MLS listing. This six-bedroom, three and a half-bathroom home sprawls out over 5,000 square feet, and according to a little light stalking on Google Maps Street View, features at least one outdoor patio and a detached garage. The property also seems to back onto Cresheim Valley Park, and features at least one fireplace (Working? Who knows?) and an arguably charming use of blue and white checkered tile in the kitchen. If there's anything we dislike more than broker babble, it's nothing at all. Give us something to go on, please. Anything.

Update: Prayers answered! The listing now reads:

Gate Lane adjoins Elbow Lane and is part of the 1924-29 French Village development by Dr. George Woodward. The five houses on privately owned Gate Lane were designed by Robert R. McGoodwin and Edmund B. Gilchrist in the style of rural architecture in Normandy, France. The house is constructed of beautiful Wissahickon mica schist stone walls with a slate and copper roof. This rare and charming home borders Fairmount Park and offers privacy and dramatic natural views from the rear flagstone patio and formal garden. The kitchen is updated with Corian counter tops, stainless steel appliances and under cabinet lighting while maintaining an original built-in cabinet.
