Off the Main Line, tucked into the end of the—aptly named—Baron Drive in Bryn Mawr, sits a 7,528-square-foot mansion that just listed for $2,395,000.
The five-bed, six-and-a-half-bath home, which the owners dubbed “Castlebridge,” was built in 1982, but you wouldn’t know that from looking at it. Turrets, a courtyard and a sleek slate roof greet you outside.
The main door opens into a great room with towering ceilings and tall, partially stained-glass windows. There are stone fireplaces throughout the home—as you would expect from a baronial castle—and the kitchen opens up into a breakfast nook that doubles as a conservatory.
The home’s master bedroom is nothing to scoff at, either. In addition to high ceilings, it has a private bathroom with a green marble bathtub and a walk-in closet.
The rest of the house features a number of amenities, including some that fit with the overall medieval and baronial theme (like a temperature-controlled wine cellar) and others that don’t (note the home theater and arcade).
The mansion was brought to life by Philly’s own avant-garde interior designer, Marguerite Rodgers. It sits on 1 acre of land and includes a pool, garden and three-car garage.
