Property Description for 770 GODFREY RD, VILLANOVA PA 19085

Go to Sothebys to view this incredible property! As the verdant heart of Ardrossan, Col. Robert Montgomery's legendary 750-acre estate on Philadelphia's Main Line, Albermarle is a property like no other. Its fascinating history as the center for the Montgomery family's equestrian pursuits epitomizes the Main Line's Golden Age. Its transition into a magnificent turnkey residence with guest houses, high efficiency office spaces, party barn and restored clock-tower continues its legacy as world-class property. Surrounded by conservancy land with low taxes, Albermarle underwent a meticulous renovation supervised by top architects and artisans to become a very private, very sophisticated country estate designed for fine living, entertaining, business headquarters and recreation. Its landscaping and hardscaping are breathtaking, shaping the vistas and gardens that enhance the property in every direction all year long. The main residence has been perfectly restored with repointed stone, a cedar shake roof, copper gutters and hand-carved front entrance doors. Inside, a completely renovated, beautifully designed home awaits with a mix of elegant yet comfortable formal living and dining rooms, a true chef's kitchen, paneled library and a dramatic great room centered on a soaring fireplace. All are designed for easy access to terraces overlooking superb gardens and green spaces, perfect for entertaining. Private quarters include a sumptuous main bedroom suite and 4 sterling guest bedrooms. The superior materials and incredible craftsmanship are timeless throughout. The restored, multi-functional clock tower building now houses a complete office space, beautifully blending original architectural features, including the clock's mechanicals room, with every modern amenity. Twin guest houses are immaculately renovated, providing a 1-bedroom accommodation on one side and a 3-bedroom accommodation on the other. Each includes charming living quarters, spacious, modern kitchens and outdoor spaces. The stone barn was completely rebuilt in the location of the original barn. Its design complements the estate's existing structures perfectly. Designed for year-round use, the barn is centered on a great room with dramatic ceiling height. A second-floor space presently is used as a fitness room. The property's location is convenient to renowned schools, shopping and restaurants as well as local and international travel hubs.
