A 19th-century Chestnut Hill stone Victorian has hit the market, with a brand-spanking new kitchen and bathrooms to spare.
The home was built in 1888 by architect Theophilus P. Chandler, the founder of the architecture program at Penn. As the listing states, the house is eclectic in that it’s a combination of a Victorian, with its shingle wood roof, and a classic Chestnut Hill stone home.
It’s big, too: The 4,830-square-foot property features seven bedrooms and 3.5 baths, and a large backyard. Inside, the recently renovated home is a mix of old and new. All of the wood trim, pocket doors, and window seats, for example, are original. The two-story turret and large, curved bay windows on the side of the home are beautiful touches, as well. But the kitchen and bathrooms are new, and the floors have been refinished.
The asking price of this home at 8310 Crittenden Street is $929,000.
