Philly's 16 largest residences for sale, in one graph

Anyone looking for a 32,000-square-foot property?

Last week we featured the tiniest residences for sale in Philadelphia, from a cozy Rittenhouse Square 1-bedroom right on the park to a surprisingly spacious studio in the Art Museum neighborhood. Today, we’re looking at the largest residences for sale in the city, including a 1909 castle-like residence in Chestnut Hill.

NeighborhoodX checked out the most recently listings and found that the largest actual residences for sale range from a midcentury modern 6,500-square-foot unit in the Barclay Condominiums to the 16,000-square-foot Greylock mansion in Chestnut Hill.

The Barclay condo, the smallest property on the list, in fact has the biggest price tag of $7 million. It’s currently one of the most expensive homes for sale in Philly.

But if you add in all types of properties, the biggest of them all is the former St. Aloysius church compound in Grays Ferry that we wrote about back in April. The whole lot clocks in at 32,000 square feet and is on the market for $2.25 million—that’s about the price of a 2-bedroom condo in New York City, says researcher Constantine Valhouli.

Still, the Grays Ferry property is an anomaly on the list. Otherwise, if you want a big home for a big price tag, look to Society Hill and Chestnut Hill. Valhouli says most of the "massive residences are largely clustered" in those two neighborhoods.

You can view the interactive chart on NeighborhoodX’s website, which lets you sort and view the listings by price, size, and price per square footage.
