VILLANOVA, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For more than a century, Ardrossan Farms was the Montgomery-Scott-Wheeler family’s private estate with a larger-than-life history that inspired the 1940 classic The Philadelphia Story starring Katherine Hepburn. Today more than 350 acres of the estate’s land remain, located off Newtown and Darby-Paoli Roads. Ardrossan Farms’ eastern view-shed is comprised of approximately 112 acres and sixteen carefully-positioned home sites are now planned. Each site is available for sale, priced at $1,500,000.
“Each lot has wonderfully picturesque views of expansive country greenery and mature trees; they are all really quite unique,” said Eddie Scott, grandson of Main Line socialites Edgar Scott and Hope Montgomery Scott.
Black Angus cattle still graze the beautiful pastures on the estate that was named after the family’s ancestral home in Ayrshire, Scotland. The Manor Home, designed by eminent architect Horace Trumbauer, is framed by open meadows, a tranquil pond, and forest.
Tours are available by appointment only. Prospective buyers may schedule a private tour by calling Eddie Scott at 610.246.6666. For more information, please visit ArdrossanFarms.com.
About Ardrossan Farms
Over one hundred years have passed since Hope Montgomery Scott's parents acquired nearly 800 acres, known as Ardrossan Farms. Over the decades there has been change. About 90 acres, known as Skunk Hollow, became part of the Radnor Township Park System. Nearly 300 acres are under conservation easements. The remaining center of the farm includes more than 350 acres of open farmland and wooded areas that have remained the same for over a century. Set in the heart of the Main Line on Newtown Road in Radnor Township, Pa, Ardrossan is a rapturous setting for peaceful walks and pastoral relaxation — yet conveniently close to Main Line shopping and businesses.
