"Thomas Mill Heights," which is the exact location of this million dollar house, is not within the traditional boundaries of the community known for over sixty years as "Andorra." This is a common mistake of many. In that area, "Andorra" ends at Wisshickon & Manatawna Avenues. From thence onward "Thomas Mill Heights" dips down into the Fairmount Park region along the Bell's Mill Road. "Chapel Hill" just behind Cathedral Village and the intersection of Henry & Summit Avenues are also thought be "Andorra," the actual boundaries being North of Port Royal Avenue and East of Wissahickon Avenue. Thus Endeth the Geography Lesson.

regardless of their location, they are ugly cookie cutter homes, i wouldn't give you 100,000 for anyone of them. Not one bit of personality in any of them. Any other neighborhood other than roxborough you would never get away with building ugly homes like these. Anything unique about roxborough got torn down last week at the corner of ridge & roxborough. Now, we like the northeast, store after store after store. I wonder who's going to be buying all of these homes since a lot of the older ones are for sales too, I guess the economy is picking up - too bad roxborough's history has to pay for it.

Oh, Mr. Stelzer: You should see what they did to the old "Manayunk Library" building (formerly known as "Lander's Nursing Home). It's like a log with a bunch of fungus growing all over it, talk about ugly architecture. Then walk up Green Lane a wee bit and see what they did to the Samuel S. Keely House built in 1868. S. S. Keely ran a lumber mill at the bottom of Leverington Avenue where Main Street connects. His house should have been protected from the greedy developers who worship the almighty dollar. Where is the "Roxborough, Manayunk, Wissahickon Historical Society?" Why didn't they say one word about the "Bunting House" prior to its demolition? Useless, useless!

I know what you mean John. The sections of Green Lane you mention are being ruined by developers. I bet those same developers wouldn't want that mess being put up around them. Is the Keely House the one at Green Lane & Manayunk? I just about got ill when I saw new construction being put there. Drive by Leverington & Silverwood and look at those houses going up too. The back windows (at least I think they're the back windows) are practically touching the sidewalk.
