Once a decade a residence like this comes to the market. Greylock Mansion is a 25-room, 16,500 square foot, eight bedroom, four full and four half bathroom mansion that sits on seven acres of beautiful land bordering the 1,800 acres of Wissahickon Valley Park. The tree-lined winding driveway leads to a grand circle and covered entrance of this stone masterpiece originally built in 1909 by steel magnate Henry A. Laughlin. The gorgeous exterior stone was quarried on site to construct this marvel. The ceiling height, grandeur of the marble tile, the white marble stairs, and the windows everywhere show the pure class of this building and its potential. Enjoy the tree-lined abundant land with taxes equivalent to a home much smaller in size.
