One of the most spacious carriage houses we’ve come across in Chestnut Hill has hit the market with a big asking price of $1.295 million. If that causes sticker shock, consider the monthly rent of $4,500.
Yep, this massive 5-bedroom, 2.5-bath stone carriage house is available for both purchase or rent.
Within the 4,500 square feet of space, there are some classic features one would expect in a home like this: exposed beams, a wood-burning fireplace (two, actually), and the original sliding carriage doors. "The architectural details of the house itself are very interesting," says owner Carol Schramek.
Yet there are have been some upgrades, too. There’s a midcentury modern kitchen, an iron spiral staircase, and a new laundry room.
The home is sandwiched between Wissahickon Valley Park and Morris Arboretum.
