After a brief time off the market, George Howe’s famous “High Hollow” estate in Chestnut Hill is listed again for $3.5 million.
The estate, which was the renowned architect's personal residence, was completed in 1917. Howe is widely known for designing the iconic PSFS building along with William Lescaze.
According to an Inquirer article in the early 1990s, this 12,000-square-foot-plus home was instrumental in Howe's career, and "established the standard for fashionable country-house design around Philadelphia for the next 20 years."
The six-bedroom, seven-bath home is on more than four acres, and features a gated entrance, stone driveway, inground pool and pool house.
Stand-out features include a marble staircase, a 36-foot kitchen area with a two-story design, 14-foot ceilings, and three fireplaces. An extra guest apartment is also part of the estate.
The property was last sold in October 2008 for $2.25 million.
