Wynnewood, Pennsylvania, USA

“Maybrook is a mansion and property located in Wynnewood, Lower Merion Township, Pennsylvania in the Main Line suburban region just outside of Philadelphia. The mansion was built in 1881 as a summer home by liquor baron and real estate developer Henry C. Gibson and his wife, Mary B. Klett and six-year-old daughter Mary Klett “May” Gibson. Gibson named the property for his little daughter and the brook that runs through it.
Designed by renowned Philadelphia architects George Watson Hewitt and William D. Hewitt,[2] the house was purportedly meant to look like a Medieval Norman castle in Scotland. Gibson imported English stonemasons to construct the 35-room mansion that has a gross area of 20,000 square feet with a 72-foot tower. It was finished in 1881 but had later additions added by Henry Gibson’s daughter who inherited the property after his death including a library and a ballroom.”[source: Wikipedia]
