For sale: 3 estates that will make you feel like you moved out of the country
Let's face it. For all your bluster, you're not moving out of the country. Your job is here, your family is here and you'd miss Wawa. These three estates could make you feel as if you were living in the United Kingdom, with all the architectural delights of English manor and tudor style, and none of the inconvenience of Brexit.
151 Cheswold Valley Rd., Haverford, PA
Taxes: $2,627 monthly
Take me away: The red slate roof on this enormous Lower Merion estate comes from Vermont, but the effect is all European. We love the gated courtyard and the private, wooded setting. Interior rooms get plenty of light and greenery, making you feel hundreds of miles away from the closest urban elites on the East Coast, rather than dozens of miles away.
424 Louella Ave., Wayne, PA
Taxes: $1,038 monthly
Take me away: This home has already won four design or restoration awards. The original exterior retains a Tudor style from its construction as a carriage house in 1898. Today it includes a gourmet kitchen and beautiful arched windows and exposed beams throughout.
40 Harrison Dr., Newtown Square, PA
Taxes: $4,278 monthly
Take me away: The best part of an English manor home is the grounds and this property is no disappointment, sitting on a nearly 13-acre lot with sweeping views. Even the children's playroom includes Tudor touches: the theater is built in the style of The Globe Theater.
