Situated on 32.1 acres in one of the Philadelphia Main Line’s most exclusive areas, Linden Hill is a singular opportunity to experience estate living at its historic finest. The main residence and its dependencies are in excellent condition, having been magnificently maintained by the present owners. The property is notable for its world-class architecture and its very private, park-like setting. Designed between 1928 and 1931 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.
Enter Linden Hill’s very secluded grounds and travel past fenced pastures and stone outbuildings reminiscent of a quaint French village. An initial courtyard formed by a turreted guest house, a 10-car garage, stables and an additional two-bedroom guest house leads to the crest of a hill. At the end of a narrow-walled lane, the magnificent manor house reveals itself, a majestic example of French Normandy-inspired design of breathtaking scale and symmetry.
