This iconic Campbell’s Soup family’s French-style estate Linden Hill on the Main Line is being broken up into parcels for sale, writes Howard Walker for the Robb Report.
Linden Hill, as the Gladwyne estate has been called by its current owner Robert Burch in recent years, was previously owned for more than 50 years by the Dorrance family of the Campbell’s Soup Company.
Linden Hill’s very secluded grounds on the Main Line and well-manicured grounds and stone outbuildings bring to mind out-of-the-way quaint French villages. Gorgeous as it is, it has been on the market for several years with no offers.
Finally, there seems to be a solution for Linden Hill. By getting approval to parcel the estate out into several new homesites, the parcels of land may sell more easily this way.
“We’re really optimistic that this time our proposal will be approved. We even have one of the new lots under contract,” Lisa Yakulis of Kurfiss Sotheby’s International Realty tells the Robb Report.
“At that price point, we feel Linden Hill becomes extremely well-priced and very appealing. There are much smaller, less architecturally and historically significant estates in the Philadelphia Main Line area that are priced about the same,” adds Yakulis.
