What's the exact opposite of limestone floating stairs in Manhattan, pray tell? A brick-clad 1937 Georgian Revival on 125 acres of Pennsylvania horsey land, near Philly. Film director M. Night Shyamalan may have just sold the former for $9.5M, but the latter is where he and wife Bhavna retreat when they want to feel "centuries away from the modern world." Featured in the June issue of Architectural Digest in a story that is disappointingly pun-less—this guy has directed and/or produced The Sixth Sense and The Last Castle, people!—Ravenwood recalls English architecture from the 17th and 18th centuries, thanks to the vision of Richard Cameron of the Brooklyn-based firm Atelier & Co., and is filled with key pieces of furniture selected by interior designer David Kleinberg. Curbed Philly notes that Shyamalan bought the property for $17.9M eight years ago and has sold off another of his homes, on Philadelphia's Main Line, in the years since as well. Anyway, find another photo of Ravenwood below.
