In case you thought billiard rooms were just for Clue, we present three suburban Philadelphia estates with the perfect rooms for your pool table (and your bar, TV and anything else you need for fun). With high-end finishes and multimillion-dollar price tags, they might demand higher stakes than you’re used to.
1075 Leopard Rd., Berwyn, Pa.
Monthly taxes: $6,533
Tell me all about it: This 12-acre, seven-bedroom estate in Chester County offers radiant heat hardwoods, fireplaces galore, a luxury kitchen with butler’s pantry and a private elevator. But we really love the lower-level entertainment floor, home to a bar with room for pool as well as a home theater and a wine cellar. Plus, there’s a pet bath in the mudroom. Come on.
928 Garrett Mill Rd, Newtown Square, Pa.
Monthly taxes: $3,757
Tell me all about it: Belgrave Farm sits on 36 acres in the Radnor Hunt area of Chester County and includes multiple outbuildings. The seven-bedroom home features Ridley Creek views and was once a stone farmhouse. We love the billiard room on the first floor, adjacent to the library and the den. There’s a great view of a waterfall, and one of the outbuildings has a “party room” loft. Not surprisingly, the home has gotten its share of fawning media coverage.
708 Hillview Road, Malvern, Pa.
Monthly taxes: $4,046
Tell me all about it: This seven-bedroom home overlooks two holes of the White Manor Country Club golf course in Chester County, but it also offers a billiard room with a bar for a quiet indoor game. We love the cherry library and the vaulted master suite, too. Plus: Who can resist a soaking tub you need stairs to climb into?
6450 Old Carversville Road, New Hope
Monthly taxes: $3,112
Tell me all about it: This 13-acre property features a six-bedroom main house as well as multiple outbuildings and garages on the grounds. The billiards room is part of a sprawling lower level that includes two bedrooms, a sauna, a workshop and storage space, in addition to room for a pool table. We love the dual islands in the custom, gourmet kitchen, plus the guest house — at 1,500 square feet of living space — is bigger than many a primary residence.
