Completed in 1962, the spacious six-bedroom home with amazing views of the surrounding woods is known for modernist details that blend the home into its environment. Clad in natural stone work, PPG double pane thermal floor-to-ceiling window panes allow residents to enjoy the breathtaking views from anywhere in the home. For relaxing outdoor enjoyment, residents can take advantage of the covered deck and terrace in the open courtyard.

In addition to the expansive natural-lit interior, many of the original design features still give this home an incredibly unique character. Most notably, a large spiral staircase in the living room covers a compact indoor pool. While most of the home still retains most of its original features, modern touches such as a complete chef’s kitchen and a sound-proof recording studio have been recently added to design.

    It\’s a Neutra you silly old goats. $6 M is a steal.

    I don’t see 6,000 sq. ft.! Maybe floor plans with dimensions would help.

    I mean, it’s nice; but not $6 million nice. Clearly the price comes from 10 acres of forested land in the middle of Philadelphia. This same thing could probably be constructed on similar land out in the Allegheny’s for a $1-$1.5 million and you wouldn’t have to live in filthadelphia.
