Nestled deep along Norwood Ave in Chestnut Hill, you will find one of area's finest architecturally significant examples of the Estates from the era of Grandeur and Grace. This "old lady" is ready to be restored to her former Glory, for her revival and her second act! Much has been written and documented about this Estate's origins and history over the past century. 8840 Norwood is a part of Philadelphia's history and legacy. Formerly owned by the area's Rich and Elite; Now ready to be owned by You! Depending of the stories you read, multiple additions, renovations and upgrades have fortified this Estate over the years. Recent appraisals have counted 10 bedrooms, 6 full baths and 3 half baths. You must visit to fully appreciated the engraved and paneled formal Dining Room. Did I count 3 separate kitchen areas? ...possibly for the staff to entertain in the Formal BALLROOM with coffered ceilings and stone ached doorways. Over-sized Floor to Ceiling Windows offer plenty of Sun Light; Of course hardwood flooring throughout, Crown Moldings and Ornate Fixtures adorn this stately Manor. The Sun Room was recently used as a Pool Hall and entertainment space. Travel upstairs and literally get lost in the maze of bedrooms, separate sitting areas and Parlors. Architectural surprises abound from a cute Romeo and Juliet balcony to custom built-ins and custom-made arched French doors. Truly an amazing structure waiting for the right "dance partner" to waltz her into the next century. This is a FANNIE MAE property proudly offered through HomePath. Corporate Terms Apply. The Home is protected and is subject to terms of an easement held by the Chestnut Hill Conservancy.
