A mansion that clocks in at 7,398 square feet and dates back to the early 18th century deserves its own name, so meet Andorra Corner. The massive home sits on the edge of Chestnut Hill, bordering Wissahickon Valley, and just hit the market for $2,695,000.
The home dates back to about 1722, but it’s been updated with 21st century finishes and amenities over the course of its long history. Today, the large home features five bedrooms, six full baths, and three half baths. It sits on less than an acre of land, separated from the park by a stone wall.
The main house is where you’ll find the bedrooms, each with their own full bathrooms. In this portion of the property there is also a gallery with three sets of French doors that open to the home’s backyard and in-ground pool. The kitchen is also impressive in its own right, with cathedral-style ceilings and a huge set of windows that look out to the home’s property.
But if you really want a feel for the home’s history, look to the carriage house. From the main house, there’s a breezeway that connects to a carriage house, which has a two-bedroom apartment on the top floor and four carriage stalls on the ground level.
Take a tour of the mansion below.
