This stone Queen Anne style dwelling is characteristic of the large, comfortable homes
constructed in Chestnut Hill, and especially on West Chestnut Hill Avenue, in the late
19th century. The house and porches sprawl out across the landscape and literally call
out for the Wissahickon style planting design that is seen today. Photos taken several
years apart.
