This $7.9 Million Chesco Residence Has Parking For All Your Thanksgiving Guests!

2425 White Horse Rd, Berwyn, PA, 19312

2425 White Horse Rd, Berwyn, PA, 19312

Wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t have to feel bad whenever someone who was visiting you took your neighbor’s parking space? (Or, heaven forbid, if your neighbor’s visitor took your spot, forcing you to park half a block from your house…) This Berwyn gem doesn’t have that problem: there’s room for eight cars. Additionally, the two garages have apartments above them, allowing you to host guests at a moment’s notice.

The home itself, designed by the extolled Rene Hoffman and built by David Semerjian, is situated among 22 acres of Brandywine Conservancy land. It boasts wide-plank hardwood floors, imported stone, custom cabinetry and six fireplaces. Outside, the pool and pool house are accompanied by various living spaces and two fireplaces, but given the property’s extensive acreage, additional outbuildings or a tennis court are possible.

710 Brandywine Dr, Moorestown, NJ, 08057

I think it’s safe to say that most Moorestown homes–or at least the ones we’ve chosen to feature on Property–are almost always more extraordinary than the usual jaw-dropper house. Thus, we present to you this New England-style estate.  Plus, with it practically being Thanksgiving and all, we thought you might like to check out its amazing kitchen.

Double ovens, professional Thermador six-burner cook top, and high-end appliances all furnish the gourmet cuisine with Rutt handcrafted cabinetry and pine island. The island has an L4 granite countertop and the breakfast area has an adjoining sun room that overlooks the pool and pond.

Houses with Names: Au Vallon

Au Vallon - 1850 W Montgomery Ave

If you hear that a home has a name, chances are you’re in for a treat. This ultra luxe estate has Au Vallon for its title, which is probably an homage to its locale: two green-filled acres of Villanova land.

And so, “to the Valley” we go: the renovated and restored property has a new fence and gate, ensuring privacy for residents who will have a carriage home with a French door-surrounded interior brick courtyard, refinished pool, Juliette balconies and rotating bookcase leading to the private dining room.

Sold in Six Days!

2001 Kater St, Philadelphia, PA, 19146

2001 Kater St, Philadelphia, PA, 19146

If only there were pictures of this corner rowhouse from back in the day on PhillyHistory.org! We would have loved to see what the Graduate Hospital home looked like then.

According to its last owners, the first floor was once a hair salon with apartments on the second and third levels. But going back even further, the building was a generational sandwich shop called “Prowell’s Sandwiches,” which some older neighbors fondly remember for “their excellent chilli hot dogs.” (This was before the big cheesesteak craze that hit Philly in the 1940s.) The owner adds that parts of sandwich shop’s lettering can still be seen on the sidewalk out front.

This Artist’s Million Dollar Rittenhouse Home Is On the Market

#1ST/2D, 1821 Spruce St, Philadelphia, PA, 19103

#1ST/2D, 1821 Spruce St, Philadelphia, PA, 19103

What would you do with this Edwardian-detailed home? (No kidding, it has walnut woodwork, leaded glass windows, plaster moldings on the ceiling, and, of course, original hardwood floors with inlaid details. Also, a handful of wood-burning fireplaces.)

Consider this: the property is actually two distinct units, which are currently connected via a “secret passageway” that can be sealed off easily to make a closet. If choosing to keep it whole, you get a 3-bedroom. Separate them and someone gets a 1-bedroom with an artist’s studio. Speaking of which…

833 N Woodstock St, Philadelphia, PA, 19130

Ooof, don’t kick yourself too hard! This three-story period beauty has just been listed as “contingent” on Redfin, which may soon mean that it’s no longer on the market.

Lest you forgot, exposed wood beams, stained glass windows, and original moldings and built-in armoire are just a few of the things the home offered potential buyers. More info here.
