Brooke Mansion, Estate of the Day
Love the Victorian era? Then this estate of the day, located in Birdsboro, Pennsylvania will make your heart beat faster. The Brooke Mansion is a 13,000 square foot home which has recently been used as a bed and breakfast. The home was built in 1888 by Edward Brooke II as a wedding present for his bride. It was designed by architect Frank Furness and the cast iron work in the doors and fireplaces was created at the E. and G. Brooke iron foundry. Victorian details abound including custom fireplaces, window seats, clawfoot tubs and most of the original tile and woodwork. It is listed at $3.75 million. Much quaintness after the jump.
