Ever heard of Gladwyne, Pennsylvania? Nope? Me neither.
But here's why the Montgomery County town is noteworthy: Back in 2011, Gladwyne was ranked the seventh richest zip code in the country. Plus, it's home to the most expense residence currently for sale in the Keystone State.
The Estate at Maple Hill has been on the market for just shy of six months and is currently asking $21 million—a $1 million reduction from its original listing price.
The 32-acre residence has a six-bedroom, 10-bathroom main house, which was completed 2009. The full-stone exterior has limestone accents, a graduated multi-colored slate roof, and sweeping terraces.
Architect Peter Zimmerman and Cherokee Construction blended traditional elements – decorative plaster work, inlaid stone floors, wrought iron stairs with white marble treads – with modern demands. These amenities include a gym, indoor pool, theater and a wine cellar with separate tasting room.
And the sprawling outdoor spaces are just as thoughtfully designed. There's a tennis court equipped with lights, a stone terrace and fire pit, and a sizeable guest house situated above three of the estate's seven garages.
