With entertaining spaces that were designed by Peter Zimmerman and a plum corner lot in the St. Martins neighborhood in Chestnut Hill, Rock House is a dream. So it should come as no surprise that the home is being sold by local bold-faced names Joseph Dworetzky and Amy Banse. You may recognize him from his days as city solicitor under Ed Rendell’s mayorship or his more recent stint on the School Reform Commission. Banse is the managing director at Comcast Ventures as well as their head of funds.

The estate clocks more than 10,000 square feet of living space, spanning six bedrooms, six full baths and a fully finished basement. The Zimmerman-designed kitchen (plus pantry) and family room make stylish gathering spaces. The formal living and dining rooms are traditional and adjoin an enclosed sunporch. En-suite bedrooms take most of the additional two floors, along with several other offices. The basement features a media room, a workshop and a powder room.

Outside, the landscaping on the one-plus acre lot is meticulous. The home includes private blue stone and brick terraces as well as a separate carriage house which the listing suggests using as a gym or office space.
