Regal Vaux Hill Mansion Back on Market With $2M Chop

Remember this jawdropper from a few years back? We last wrote about this sprawling mansion in Phoenixville in Chester County in 2014, when it hit the market for a solid $8,999,999. It's been on and off the market a few more times since then, though this time it's asking for $2 million less than its original asking price.

Vaux Hill of "The Fatland Estate"shares the same birthday as our country, 1776, and was built by none other than John Haviland, a prominent architect who would later go on to design and build Eastern State Penitentiary.

A tree-lined driveway leads you to the Greek Revival mansion, which features 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The interiors still feature original millwork, floor-to-ceiling windows, crown molding, and chandeliers in nearly every room. The house has undergone a few updates, including a new kitchen and steam baths.

The grounds feature a large pool with free-standing columns and a pool house, a tennis court, and a barn with another three acres.

Maybe the "smaller" pricetag means this regal estate will finally find a buyer. The asking price is $6,999,999.
