Powelton Village ‘Castle’ lists for $2.9M

It’s currently an apartment building

A gorgeous and historic castle in Powelton Village has hit the market, and it can be yours for $2,899,000.

The medieval “Castle” dates back to the late 1800s and was designed by the Wilson Brothers, who also played a role in the ornate Drexel Institute building. Although it’s currently set up as an apartment building, the listing shows that much of the 12,104-square-foot property’s architectural integrity has been preserved both inside and out.

The staircases feature incredibly ornate woodwork as well as stained glass windows. And while it’s difficult to determine the difference between community spaces and actual apartments, the listing photos seem to suggest that all eight units boast plenty of individual character, from bay windows with interior shutters to tiled fireplaces.

And for what it’s worth, there’s a six-car garage out back with a deck and garden below.
