Tucked away in the northeast section of Philly, this turn-of-the century farmhouse offers 4,500 square feet of space and a whole ton of history for $795,000.

The four-bed, four-bath house, which just came on the market, sits on 10 Flagstaff Place in Bustleton. It dates back to the early 1900’s when it was owned by George Horace Lorimer, the editor of the now-defunct Saturday Evening Post, and head of the Curtis Publishing Company, which operated in the early-mid 1900s out of the Curtis Building in Washington Square.

The house also offers a lot of high-end touches that help it feel more like a country estate. There’s a large stone walkway leading to the house, tons of room inside, hardwood floors throughout, three working fireplaces, and lots of bay windows that shed plenty of light into the home.

A carriage house sits next door, offering two additional bedrooms and two baths. The house is being shown by the Dominic Fuscia Team.
