Robert McGoodwin's House in Chestnut Hill Asks $1.2M

The 5-bedroom stunner was built in 1913

Philly architect Robert McGoodwin left his mark on Chestnut Hill throughout the 1900s, designing homes for prominent families like the Houstons and Woodwards. So it comes as no surprise that his personal residence is just as impressive, and now on the market for $1,195,000.

Inside, the 5-bedroom, 3.5-bath arts and crafts home may look like a new build, but McGoodwin designed it in 1913. Plenty of original details remain throughout, including the exposed beam ceilings in the living area, built-ins in the bedrooms, and stone fireplaces and hardwood floors.

McGoodwin's home was considered a break from the traditional Chestnut Hill home. An article published at the time reads, "It is a house of fewer moods and stronger purposes than we see every day, which bespeaks a freedom from bondage and from traditional, and a determination to encourage individual thought and action."

Of course, over the years the home has undergone a number of renovations and had some additions tacked onto it. Today, it clocks in at 4,540 square feet.

The asking price of this home at 7620 Lincoln Drive is $1,195,000.
