The listing for this contemporary estate in Chestnut Hill pegs its construction somewhere around 1974. Which would make it about 120 years younger than its closest neighbor, the Philadelphia Cricket Club. Like its neighbor, the home features lots of lush green land and plenty of 215 cachet.
The home features five bedrooms and three full baths on just more than an acre of land. Glass doors and wall-sized windows allow plenty of light but the secluded setting ensures privacy. The kitchen is ringed with custom cabinets and also includes a large center island and top-of-the-line appliances like a six-burner Viking stove. A two-story addition makes room for a garden room, family room, TV room and sun room (in another house, these four rooms would be the same). The master suite includes a private bath with a sauna and six enormous closets.
Along with the lush land surrounding the home, exterior features include a slate patio and an in-ground pool. There is also a private lily pond with its very own waterfall.
