o noes -- my house was just sold
« on: January 06, 2014, 08:33:02 AM »
The famed Copperwood Estate in Chestnut Hill (yes, that is within city limits!) It took five years to sell and a price drop of $2 million, but at $2.7 million it's still a bargain for a Horace Trumbauer renovated Gilded Age mansion -- complete with a speakeasy, bowling alley, separate carriage house (w/ 3 bedrooms) not to mention a one-bedroom detached cottage. And don't you adore the elevator with the telephone?

Click the link at the bottom of the above link to go to the other page with even more interior shots.

And if you want to know why Philly's schools are fucked up, aside from our horrible Republican legislature in Harrisburg, property owners of this place once got away with tax assessments of $262,000 on this until the recent change by Mayor Nutter. Still a bargain considering NYC prices.

It's still 7 degrees warmer here right now than New Orleans so sit on that and spin a while.

Naive again Trey ? ... Miss P doesn't need a link on Penis size in America because she is an expert on the Multinational Penis size ... She has sampled more penis than you can shake a measuring stick at to get to the bottom of this subject .

I appreciate that its renovated and in move-in condition, but what happened to the "gild" from the Gilded Age.   

I think this is one of the most fabulous and creepy remnants of that time.  One of the largest houses ever built in the USA:

I believe the same architect, Horace Trumbauer , did Lynnewood Hall as well as the interiors of Copperwood Estate, just not the exteriors.

I would off thought it was perfect for Russian new money instead off South Kensington .
skewing up prices in all off London . 2.7 $ South ken 4 rooms /kit/2bathrooms/ security off course , Hubby has to talk about something at vodka bash. And yes I guess I am being something at New Money Russians , still getting over being forced into pavement twice by phalanx off over coiffured creatures whose manners where downright appalling , seethe. breath let go.
