The Skinny: Set on four acres of rolling hillside outside of Philadelphia, this stone mansion was built in 1909 to accommodate some expensive tastes, with 12,000 square feet, eight bedrooms, eight fireplaces, and mahogany detailing. It was enough to attract typewriter heiress Ethel Milfred Royal—sorry, no Queen Elizabeth here. In the hundred-plus years since its inception, the estate has seen some additions, like a Spanish-style poolhouse and a tennis and basketball court, accessible by bridge from the main house. All of which combine to make one regal residence, even if real royalty isn't involved.
