Tell me all about it: Not only does this five-bedroom home come with the cachet of being designed by Philadelphia architect George W. Carson – it is also situated alongside the lovely Morris Arboretum in Chestnut Hill. The high-end kitchen had us at built-in espresso maker and the library is almost too charming to be real. The only thing more over the top than the chandelier in the master suite bathroom is the copious Calcutta marble.
