One of the most prominent estates in the region and only 22 miles from downtown Philadelphia, this 40,000-square-foot modern residence was designed by world-renowned architect Rafael Viñoly. Situated on 70 picturesque acres, the distinctive main house is built around an impressive Belgium stone courtyard. The residence is aglow with contemporary qualities suitable for display of grand art collections, yet it is also perfect for a more casual and intimate lifestyle. No expense was spared in the design of the exquisite indoor and outdoor materials.

WHAT MAKES THIS A BUNGALUX
We're drooling ... really
- • We only have ten photos of this one, but we've spent around twenty hours staring at them. We have no idea where Fort Washington is, but we would give up Silicon Valley guys, our cool little pads, our friends, our family, pretty much our whole West Coast lives and relocate here.
- • Who is architect Rafael Viñoly? His first major project in New York was the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, which was completed in 1988. In 1989, he won an international competition to design the Tokyo International Forum. Completed in 1996, many people consider this building to be the most important cultural complex in Japan. His firm's design was one of the finalists in the World Trade Center design competition.
- • During the course of his forty-plus year career, Viñoly has practiced in the United States, Latin America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. His firm has realized unprecedented growth over the past few years, expanding to include affiliate offices in London and Los Angeles as well as site offices around the world, including the newest in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Bahrain.
- • Rafael Viñoly is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, an International Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects, and a member of the Japan Institute of Architects as well as the Sociedad Central de Arquitectos.
