Renowned architect John Simon Sabatino took well over a year to design and build Casa Mura, making sure he understood how sunlight and its angles, bounced off each side of the house. His house was built amid 100-year old ruins, left behind from an unexpected fire. Casa Mura is a visual and historic delight to all who visit. Sabatino's showmanship and talent are apparent after his collaboration with colorists and the use of pavilions as a model. A Reception Pavilion, a Bedroom Pavilion and a Utility Pavilion provide everything you need to enjoy each aspect of this home. The Reception Pavilion has been cleverly designed with a winding staircase and overhead loft, providing an ideal location to greet your guests. Lead your guests down the hallway through an art gallery from which Sabatino himself displayed and sold his artwork. The current owners, one of which is an award-winning landscape designer, had the new pergola built after a visit to Italy inspired the design. Words fail to capture the uniqueness of the grand Casa Mura ... you must see it to believe it! There are also 2 lots available, for sale, on Hillcrest Ave.

Once a decade a residence like this comes to the market. Greylock Mansion is a 25 room 16,500 sq ft, 8 bedroom, 4 full and 4 half bathroom mansion that sits on 7 acres of beautiful land bordering the 1,800 acres of Wissahickon Valley Park.

The gorgeous exterior stone was quarried on site to construct this marvel. The main house stands on a wide terrace with floor footprint sizes between 5,000 and 3,290 square including the walk out basement floor which has usable desirable ceiling heights. The grand covered entrance opens to the gorgeous marble tiled floors of the grand hall of the house and gives a clear span view to the other side of the house and it's giant entertaining patio.
