It’s time for a change. This gorgeous custom- build home, located on Monk Road in Gladwyne, has everything you need for a life of luxury.

Drive through the gates and down the long driveway, dotted with trees to shade your way, and up to the courtyard. Inside, estate becomes home.

Gladwyne’s Linden Hill main house and accompanying guest houses and grounds were designed around the late 1920s 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. Linden Hill’s very secluded grounds on the Main Line and well-manicured grounds and stone outbuildings bring to mind secluded and quaint French villages.

.

.

Situated on 67 acres in one of the Philadelphia Main Line’s most exclusive areas, Linden Hill is a private property noted for its world-class architecture and its jewel, park-like setting.

.

.

Despite the grandeur of this estate, many rooms have cozy, old-world charm with built-in bookcases, grand fireplaces, and wide-set windows.

.

The property includes 11 bedrooms as well as guests’ residences with private bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, offices and more, all just waiting for you to infuse them with light.

.

.

The grand-scale formal rooms offer elegant and easy, expansive or intimate entertaining spaces.

.

.

Beyond the main house there are two gorgeous pools, a picturesque pool house, a tennis court and a beautiful aviary, all set within amazing gardens and grounds.

An initial courtyard is formed by turreted caretaker’s quarters, with a 10-car garage, stately stables and additional staff houses.
