If you're looking to getaway to the European countryside, you don't have to look very far. This stunner of a stone home in Chestnut Hill sits on more than two acres (hey, that's a lot of land within city limits) and looks over the Morris Arboretum and White Marsh Valley. And it recently hit the market for a $2,150,000.
The 5-bedroom, 4-bath home was built in 1925 with Wissahickon schist stone so classic of Chestnut Hill. Lenore Gregory, who is handling the listing, tells Curbed Philly, "The homeowners have done extensive renovations, without sacrificing its original European charm."
Inside, there are some beautiful architectural details throughout, including the recently restored French oak paneling in the library. The master bathroom upstairs is laden in marble, too.
It's such a country oasis, we're sure folks would be just as happy living in the property's separate carriage house. It has a full kitchen and space for bedrooms or an office.
Again, the asking price of this Chestnut Hill home is $2,150,000.
