Rarely does one come across an historic estate of such quality designed by a legendary Architect & in amazingly intact condition. Originally known as Villa Medici this 1929 residence was designed for Dr. Sumner Cross by Wilson Eyre. Dr. Cross was the leading G.P. physician for all of Jenkintown & in the 1930s was the Head of Medicine at Abington Hospital. Believed to be Mr. Eyre's last residential commission it's an elegant interpretation of an English Country Tudor house constructed of stone & brick.

Sited far off the main road (yet only 5 minutes to the Jenkintown SEPTA station or Abington Hospital) on 2.5+ acres adjacent to Abington Friends School it provides complete privacy. Dr. Cross designed a home office (now the library) & sitting room (now the family room) for when he would see patients at his residence that has its own entrance in the North wing. The front entry is a beautifully detailed arched door with a tiered brick design. The entry hall has the trademark Eyre design in the stair railings & the natural wood details (never painted!) are everywhere. The living room occupies the entire Western wing with tall casement windows on 3 sides and a set of French doors to the rear patio. It is set down a series of 5 stairs with a vaulted & beamed ceiling stone floors & a central fireplace. The dining room has the 2nd fireplace & 2 more sets of French doors to access the terrace.

There is a back staircase and a Dutch door to the back drive and the 3-car garage. Upstairs the master suite incorporates the 3rd fireplace a Juliette balcony its own en-suite bath & a large dressing room. There are 5 more bedrooms & 3 more full bathrooms. The custom Sylvan pool was painted black (to blend in with the landscape) and
