A Legendary Main Line Real Estate Listing Now Available
Kurfiss Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to announce it has listed the 50-acre Linden Hill estate property located in Gladwyne, Pa., one of the most esteemed residential ZIP codes in the entire United States.
Represented by Lisa Weber Yakulis, a top Main Line real estate agent/Realtor based in Kurfiss SIR’s Bryn Mawr office, and Donald Pearson, company chairman, this luxury property was designed between 1928 and 1931 by Edmund B. Gilchrist for Philadelphia stockbroker and heir to a shipping fortune Rodman Griscom. In 1944, Campbell’s Soup Company chairman Jack Dorrance purchased the property, maintaining it as a residence and home to a world-class art collection until the current owners purchased the property in 1999.
Its gated entry winds past orchards and pastures and brings the visitor to a set of stone and brick buildings that resemble a quaint French village complete with a courtyard. Continue on and behold the magnificent stone mansion with its own large “court of honor,” all beautifully maintained with complete respect for the original design yet updated with every modern amenity so that it functions beautifully as a family home and as a place for entertaining. Park-like grounds, terraced gardens, two pools, a pool house, a stable, several guest houses and staff quarters and one of the most deluxe aviaries you’ve seen complete this true estate property.
The opportunity to own 50 acres in Gladwyne or anywhere on this part of the Main Line is very rare, so the incredible privacy and tranquility offered at Linden Hill is one of its most special features. For more information, see the complete slideshow or contact Lisa Yakulis: 610.517.8445. Linden Hill is offered at $19,500,000.
