The nearly four-acre lot this Chestnut Hill manse sits on could convince us to live there without ever even venturing inside. The rolling grass, the pond, the canal and the waterfall make for a downright arboreal setting.
Inside, the home is sprawled over more than 11,000 square feet of living space. Rooms almost universally feature outdoor access, whether via patio, terrace or balcony. In addition to formal entertaining spaces, there are well-appointed private spaces. Considering the six full and five partial bathrooms, the home appears to feature several metric tons of marble. There is a separate guest wing among the seven bedrooms.
The natural outdoor spaces are quite lovely but the manmade ones give them a run for their money. The garage fits three cars and the in-ground pool looks like it was brought directly from the set of The Philadelphia Story. Very yar indeed.
