This is one of the most stunning homes I have seen in a long time! We can’t get over the price! The roof alone costs as much, if not more! The Hanold Mansion was built in 1896. It is located on .36 acres in Reading, Pennsylvania. The home features amazing woodwork, pocket doors, windows, grand staircase and incredible gardens. The red slate and copper roof is out of this world. Even the hidden gutters are copper! There is crown molding and gorgeous light fixtures. There is even a koi pond. Make sure you really check out the butler’s pantry picture! That is an old ice box! Seven bedrooms, three bathrooms and 6,564 square feet. $449,900
