Spotted in Chestnut Hill: Stone Mansion Basically Inside Pastorius Park
Have you ever gone a-walkin’ or caught a summer concert in Chestnut Hill’s Pastorius Park and thought, wouldn’t it be great to just live here? Well, friend, here’s a listing you might want to see.
Located at 8100 Lincoln Drive (map), the stone beauty is 7,800-square-feet of everything you’d expect from a mansion in Chestnut Hill. Designed by H. Louis Duhring in the 1920’s, it has the historical chops to go along with the location.
You may recall that Duhring designed this in-cre-di-ble 1860s Victorian Italianate “summer” house/ Arts & Crafts style on Rex Avenue, and this home, which looks to be quite literally inside Pastorius Park, boasts original archietectural details such as a stone entryway, multiple fireplaces and hand-carved woodwork.
Seriously, that woodwork though. Seriously, that living room fireplace, though.
Anyway, there’s a lot to love about this home, including to the light-filled (and spacious) kitchen, the library and its original wood beams and a skylit “morning room” just off of the kitchen.
Perhaps most impressive is the outdoor space (just under and acre) and the wonderful custom pool area, which also features a flagstone terrace with what looks like a hot tub area.
