One of the many estates designed by Horace Trumbauer in the Philadelphia region is back on the market with a smaller price tag, but it’s just as grand as ever.
Craig Hall in Haverford, designed by Trumbauer in 1925, hit the market again last month for $1.75 million after being taken off the market in May. Since October 2015, its asking price was $1,990,000. It originally listed in 2014 for $2,499,000.
Trumbauer designed the 1.1-acre estate for Katherine Craig Wright Muckle, whose husband John Seiser Muckle was the son of the business manager at Philadelphia’s Public Ledger newspaper, according to a 2014 Philadelphia Inquirer article.
It’s a bit surprising that it’s sat on the market for so long, given that unlike Trumbauer’s Lynnewood Hall, Craig Hall has been restored to its grandeur by its current owners down to the home’s original light fixtures. According to the Inky article, the property "was in shambles" when they bought it.
The English Georgian estate originally had eight bedrooms, but post-restoration it now has six bedrooms, five full baths, and two half baths. There’s also a movie theater, gym, bar, 1,100-bottle wine cellar, and a billiards room.
We’re eager to see if the $240,000 price cut will finally help this home find a buyer.
