Lockwood Estate

The Lockwood Estate is an 1865 Carpenter Gothic/Stick Victorian House in Malvern, Pennsylvania. John Werry of Rare Victorian had a chance to take photos of it recently.



It's actually for sale -- just $2 1/4 million.

(note: I'm not sure the slideshow will come through on rss readers -- if not, click through to see the pictures.)

Oh man! I used to work about 1/4 mile away from this house and had to drive by it every day. It's just as gorgeous in person. I live in Florida now, but I would totally move back to freezing cold PA if I could have that house. :-)

I am totally in love with this house! It would be cool to see a slide show of it after it is restored and filled with a family.

They don't build them like THAT anymore.

Great post! Thanks.

(I'm the guy who took the photos) I'm planning to write a lengthy post about the house and it's history along with posting the video of my house tour. Some of the coolest parts of the house are the stuff you don't see - the basements which I captured on video. Wild stuff. Check back at my Rare Victorian blog in the coming weeks for the post/video.

BTW, I recommend the full-screen slideshow to see it in all it's glory. Click on the 4 arrows in the lower right of the embed on Sara's post.

Thanks, Sara, for your post.

Much too big for me and a bit more ornate than my tastes run, so I can't really say "want", but... Yah. Very pretty.

Pity it has a scenic view of the Home Depot.

Note that ceiling roses/medallions are not particularly hard to install. You can get simple ones off-the-shelf in either plaster (traditional but heavy), tin (also traditional), or plastic (lighter, easier to install, and once painted nobody can tell the difference). One example that approaches what we're seeing in the Lockwood photos: http://www.wishihadthat.com/medallion-b2021.aspx

Seeing pictures of the Lockwood Estate on this site really took me by surprise because of how close to my own home this is for me. I have passed by this house countless times since I was a kid and it has been one of my favorites since I first saw it.
In fact, my interest in steampunk grew out of a fascination for the houses and styles of the victorian era.

Alot of the detail work inside the house reminds me of where i used to work, Mt. Hope Estate, in Manheim, PA. It used to belong to the Grubb Family. Very similar details.
