This Victorian Carriage House Could Have Been the Perfect Alternative Retirement Plan for Norman Bates' Mother

Asking $1,590,000, this 19th-century Gothic Revival estate features six bedrooms, four and a half-baths, and more than 7,000 square feet of creaky floors and coffered ceilings. Fun fact: per the listing, the house was "noted as 'significant' to the district of Chestnut Hill," which does smell of a consolation prize but can't everybody win. There's leaded glass and restored woodwork throughout the abode, a separate barn/carriage house (complete with a front porch swing, and perfect-to-peer-out-of single front window), and in total more than one and a half acres of dense Pennsylvania forest surrounding the house. Also! This property also has the benefit of a Tax Abatement until May 2020.
