If you’ve ever dreamed about picking up and escaping the city life, here’s your chance to do so without ever leaving Philly limits. This carriage house is sitting pretty next to a pond in Chestnut Hill, secluded by woods and fields, and is looking for its next owner.
The carriage house clocks in at 1,755 square feet and sits on a half-acre of land. It’s so secluded that you’d never know it exists unless you flew over it—the home is hidden behind a row of big stone homes along E. Bells Mills Road and across the street from the Morris Arboretum.
It’s a cozy home with three bedrooms (one is used as a den) and two full bathrooms that are packed into the home along with a whole lot of charm and character. There are hardwood floors, slanted ceilings, and a wood-burning fireplace.
The amount of big windows are a nice touch, offering multiple vantage points of the grounds throughout the house. There’s also a surprising amount of storage (look at all that kitchen cabinetry!).
Such privacy comes at a premium: The carriage house is on the market for $650,000. And if you move fast, there’s an open house on Wednesday, January 10 from about 12 to 1:30 p.m.
