Sylvan Edge Estate in Elkins Park Now $100K Cheaper

Will it help the 28-room mansion find a buyer?

We're no stranger to the elegant Sylvan Edge Estate in Elkins Park. The 28-room Georgian Revival-style mansion has been on the market for almost two years. And last Friday, it chopped another $100,000 off its price tag.

As we've reported before, the current owner Dennis Cook has restored and renovated the 7,468-square-foot property over the years, bringing it back to its former glory. The estate was designed by Philly architecture firm Tilden, Register & Pepper for Philadelphia real estate mogul Joseph J. Greenberg in the 1920s.

Today, there's a new kitchen in the 8-bedroom, 8-bath home, and much of the original architectural details have been restored. There's the gorgeous marble master bathroom, an equally grand wood-paneled library, and balconies that overlook the pool and gardens.

The asking price of Sylvan Edge is now $1,095,000.
