Property Description

Situated on 20.6 acres in one of the Philadelphia Main Line's most exclusive areas, Linden Hill is a historic and rare opportunity to experience true estate living. The main residence, guest house, grounds and gardens are spectacular, having been magnificently maintained by the present owners. The property is notable for its world-class architecture and its very private, park-like setting. Designed between 1928 and 1931 by Edmund B. Gilchrist for stockbroker Rodman Ellison Griscom, the property was owned for more than 50 years by the Dorrance family of Campbell's Soup Company. Enter Linden Hill's very secluded grounds and travel past fenced pastures and stone outbuildings reminiscent of the quaintest of French villages. This mansion is a majestic example of French Normandy-inspired design of breathtaking scale and symmetry, and lends itself perfectly to comfortable every day family living, easy entertaining and offering every modern amenity. Its grand-scale rooms showcase soaring ceiling heights, breathtaking windows and French doors with endless views, interior access to multiple terraces, beautifully restored, hand-crafted millwork, original floors and moldings throughout, elegant and easy, expansive or intimate entertaining spaces. Private bedroom suites and gathering areas are equally inviting, with configurations that also accommodate guests for short-term or extended stays. Beyond the main house are two pools, a pool house and tennis court, all set within absolutely stunning gardens and grounds. As a picturesque legacy property that can also serve as a family and corporate retreat, look no farther than the timeless and spectacular Linden Hill, in close proximity to renowned schools, horse trails, fabulous shopping, clubs, golf courses, recreational facilities, restaurants, trains, Center City Philadelphia, Philadelphia International Airport and more. A rare jewel. *PUBLIC SEWER NOW AVAILABLE* ** A separate but adjacent courtyard formed by a turreted 4-bedroom guest home, a 10-car garage, 2-horse stables and an additional 2-bedroom guest house is available to purchase separately from this listing.
