For many of us, working from home looks a lot like pajamas in the living room. For folks living in these three Philadelphia suburban homes, it looks more like bespoke suits against a mahogany backdrop. These offices are lovely enough that you might actually want to do work in them.
1219 Fairville Road, Chadds Ford
Monthly taxes: $1,016
Tell me all about it: This four-bedroom home features two lovely offices. Upstairs is the formal space against a wall of built-in shelving along with paneling and a fireplace. Downstairs is a second office, tucked behind the playroom. We also love the master suite with a large dressing room and a spa-like bathroom with soaking tub.
6 White Horse Meadows Road, Malvern
Monthly taxes: $1,753
Tell me all about it: The office in this five-bedroom home has everything. Sumptuous wood paneling? Yes. Built-in library shelves with a ladder on a rail? Of course. Window bench with wooded views? Check. The rest of the house isn't bad either, what with the master suite and its enormous en-suite bath, the lower level with second kitchen and wet bar, and the hand-painted third-floor playroom.
3 Wedgewood Drive, Blue Bell
Monthly taxes: $2,251
Tell me all about it: Not only does the office in this five-bedroom home include walls of wainscoting and coffered ceilings, it has what every corporate drone dreams of: a private bathroom. The home also features all en-suite bedrooms and a kitted-out lower level boasting a home theater, game room, and kitchenette.
