If you had looked into acquiring this home last year, you would have found the property listed as a rental asking for $10,000 a month. The Chestnut Hill estate, after all, was designed by the illustrious George Howe, the fellow who helped designed the iconic PSFS building that adorns our skyline.
Now, the residence is up for sale. It has a gated entrance, stone driveway (which surrounds the front entrance) and 4.3 acres of greenery that backs up into Fairmount Park. Inside you’ll find a marble staircase, Palladium French doors and separate caretaker’s apartment. There’s also a pool and two-story kitchen.
