A tremendous 19th-century stone home in Chestnut Hill has hit the market, offering up more than 6,000 square feet and easy access to public transportation for $1.3 million.

The home at 318 W. Highland Avenue sits on a corner, across the street from Highland Station on the SEPTA Regional Rail line. It was designed by residential architect George Pearson in the late 19th century and built between 1885 and 1886.

Pearson designed a whole lot of house: The white, stone home is three stories with multiple pitched, shingled roofs and green window shutters. In all, the home clocks in at 6,122 square feet and features eight bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms.

The house lets in the light: All of the rooms are awash in sunlight and there are multiple sunrooms, including a private one off the master bedroom on the second floor.

Over the years, there have been some upgrades and additions made to the home. The kitchen, for instance, was renovated last year with new appliances including two new ovens, although the original Victorian butler’s pantry remains.

Take a tour around below. Offers will be reviewed starting Tuesday, January 30.
