Villanova PA Real Estate

Villanova PA Homes For Sale

Villanova, PA

Villanova PA is an unincorporated community that straddles Lower Merion Township and Radnor Township, rich in both history and landmarks. The Old Gulph Road was once used as an Indian trail, and later used by local area residents to deliver goods and produce to Philadelphia. William Penn himself both designed and set the road’s milestones. The Appleford/Parsons-Banks Arboretum began in 1862 when William Penn granted 100-acres to James Moore. Today, the 22-acre facility is open to the public and showcases historic colonial furnishings and greenhouses as well as the lavish arboretum grounds.

The Stoneleigh Estate in Villanova was recently donated to Lower Merion Township and the 65 acre property is now open to the public as a beautiful natural garden and walking trail. Considered one of the Main Line’s prime real estate regions, Villanova features some of the best schools and health care facilities in the area. While best known for Villanova University, this upscale community also offers a wealth of shopping, dining, and cultural activities. Villanova offers a beautiful setting for luxurious homes, with large country executive estates as well as planned communities such as Harriton Farm in Lower Merion Township and Trianon in Radnor Township.

The estate was established in the early 1900s and quickly became known for its herd of Ayshire cows, which were named after the family's land holdings in Scotland. The cows were known for their high milk yield and excellent butterfat content, and the Montgomery Scotts became famous for their high-quality dairy products. But the estate was much more than just a working farm. It was also a center of social activity, with the Montgomery Scotts hosting lavish parties and events for their friends and family. The estate's impressive stone buildings, including Holly Tree House and the primary dairy barn, were the backdrop for many of these gatherings and are still standing today, a testament to the family's lasting legacy. In addition to their agricultural pursuits, the Montgomery Scotts were also known for their philanthropy. Hope Montgomery Scott was a prominent supporter of the arts, and her husband Edgar, was a passionate conservationist. Together, they worked to preserve open spaces and wildlife habitats in Pennsylvania and beyond. Today, the Montgomery Scott estate is considered one of the most important historic properties in the Philadelphia area. It's buildings, landscapes, and collections tell the story of a bygone era, and the estate's legacy continues to inspire and influence those who visit it.
