Rock Rose – a stunning Radnor estate that once was host to Lucile Brooke, a Titanic survivor, and Jackie Kennedy Onassis – is up for sale at $2.99 million, writes Nancy Ruhling for Mansion Global.
The terracotta-colored mansion, one of the few remaining grand old estates of the Main Line, was designed by Zantzinger, Borie, and Medary, one of the architectural firms that later worked on the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
“It’s hard to find a house of this magnitude in this area with enough property to provide privacy,” said Kenn Brown, of Christie’s International Real Estate/Long & Foster Real Estate. “It’s on 5.4 acres; the other houses around it only have about an acre.”
The mansion was constructed circa 1909 and sold to its current owners Norman and Suzanne Cohn in 1973. The pair then restored and renovated it.
The three-story home has 11 bedrooms and 11 full and two half bathrooms. Among the highlights are a ballroom, wood-paneled library, and dining room with Art Nouveau fireplace.
The property also features an octagonal gazebo, tennis court, detached garage, bi-level pool, and pool house.
“It’s set up for entertaining on a grand scale,” said Brown.
