House of the Day: Fortress Looms Over Its Own Village

Before you go, we thought you'd like these...

This mansion's appearance fits well with the name of its town, Fort Washington, Pa. That's because the residence, named "Arbor Hill," looks and feels like a fort. Or perhaps we should say castle (a word that seems to do more justice to its stucco and concrete exterior). OK, compromise: We're going with "fortress."

It's size jibes with that theme -- nearly 37,000 square feet -- and its "tower" too. There's also the regal two-story entrance hall and a living room with 30-foot-high ceilings, you know, like a medieval banquet hall.

Boasting 70 verdant acres, the home offers two dining rooms, a library, gourmet kitchen, media room, indoor and outdoor tennis courts and myriad other amenities. In true feudal fashion, the home also commands its own mini-village: two stone farmhouses and a three-bedroom apartment. There's a pond too.

Reggie Hunt and Charlie Irwin of Best Home of The Main Line have the listing.
