Location: Philadelphia, Pa.
Price: $1,999,000
The Skinny: Philly seems like the place to go when one's in search of an historic stone mansion for a fraction of the price of Westchester or Palo Alto. Last week, it was the $3M Depression-era manse of Morris Leeds, now, we're taking a look at Sunfield, a 10,000-square-foot, turn-of-the-century pile on the market for just under $2M. Set on 2.75 acres in the charming Chestnut Hill neighborhood, this four-story manor features 10-foot ceilings, original hardwood floors, and five fireplaces. The property abuts Fairmount Park, which adds almost 4,100 acres to "the backyard," and features old-growth trees and impressive gardens throughout the private acreage.
