Recent reports show that more millennials are shipping out to the suburbs—namely to townships in Montgomery County. And with homes like this 7-bedroom, 6-bathroom property in Blue Bell on the market, it's hard to blame them.
Although it's called the "Orthodox Cottage," this 8,812-square-foot home on 1.76 acres is more like a country estate. It was built in 1827 but had an addition tacked on in 2004 that features a separate suite.
There's plenty of lovely detailing throughout, including classic trim molding, random-sized hardwood floors, and built-in book cases.
The asking price of this home, about 50 minutes north of Center City, is $1,465,000.
