Historic Chestnut Hill Italianate Victorian asks $1.5M

It has its own Certified National Habitat and 12 fireplaces

An incredible Chestnut Hill historic home with its own certified national habitat has hit the market to the tune of $1.54 million, and it’s nothing short of spectacular.

The 7-bedroom, 4-bathroom Italianate Victorian was built in 1860, one of the first to be built on Summit Avenue. Over the years, it was mostly used as a summer home for the owner, William Morgan, according to the listing.

After undergoing multiple renovations, the historic home (it was added to the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places in 1973) still features many of its 19th-century details, including random-width pine floors, stained glass windows, and, count ‘em, 12 marble and tiled fireplaces.

The massive 7,106-square-foot home sits on nearly an acre of land, some of which was deemed a certified national habitat by the National Wildlife Federation.
