There is no shortage of architecturally significant homes for sale in Overbrook Farms, a West Philly neighborhood that is recognized as National Historic District. Now, an impressive Tudor home that was designed by another prominent Philadelphia architect in the late 1920s has hit the market to the tune of $765,000.
That price tag makes it the most expensive home for sale in the neighborhood—but it buys you plenty: A 5,228-square-foot home designed by Charles Barton Keen that boasts an impressive seven bedrooms and 4.5 baths.
Keen was a Penn grad who trained under Frank Miles Day and went on to establish his own residential design firm Keen & Mead. Many of the original architectural details have been preserved over the years, from the crown molding to the formal staircase.
There have been some updates over the years, including a remodeled bathroom on the second floor and the master bedroom, which has a massive walk-in closet.
Still thinking about that price tag? If it helps, an extra lot in the backyard is included in the sale.
