    Property Details

    Town and Country living outside of Philadelphia. 1632 Montgomery Avenue is the perfect fusion of The Ultimate Location and the Ultimate in Luxury living. Located in the prestigious estate section of Villanova on Springmill Road, this gated oasis is situated in the very heart of Philadelphia's coveted Main Line. The property features over 2.5 flat and meticulously landscaped acres, a tennis court, mature old growth trees, and a spectacular antique brick herringbone entrance patio. Seamlessly blending old with new, the crown jewel of the outdoor space is the dramatic addition of a 1700 sq foot flagstone patio, complete with a 15 foot outdoor stone fireplace with hearthside seating, and built in grill. This stunning Georgian home offers the ultimate in lifestyle living. The tall, perfectly manicured rows of Arborvitae trees lining the property give the feeling of a hidden private enclave within, yet just outside its perimeter is immediate access to all that the Main Line has to offer. The property can be accessed easily from 2 driveways - the gated front entry off of Montgomery Avenue or the quiet private lane behind the house, off of Springmill Road. The prominent location is only nine miles from Philadelphia, and walkable to the Villanova train station, and so affords supreme convenience for traveling to Philadelphia or New York City and beyond. Originally part of the Walnut Hill estate, which still exists today, 1632 was divided into its own parcel in 1909. A historic plaque noting this date adorns the side of the home. With a gorgeous, stately entrance fronting Montgomery Avenue, the rear of the home offers a wonderful neighborhood feel. Down the small lane behind the house are eight other private homes for trick or treating or socializing. Just beyond the end of the lane is yet another family neighborhood with direct walking access to Villanova University, Bryn Mawr and more.Inside the home is updated to perfection, with large rooms that easily flow from one to the other. Each of the main level living spaces has french doors that open to covered porches and expansive terraces. The home underwent a comprehensive renovation in 2008, which upgraded everything: a new slate roof was added, along with copper gutters, all new windows, new updated electrical with 400 amp service, new plumbing, top of the line zoned heating and central air, and whole house generator (added in 2015). The state of the art technology and home automation system provides complete audio, lighting, and entertainment control for the truly modern experience. Old world workmanship and high ceilings blend seamlessly with the chic decor and modern kitchens and baths. The current owners have spent the last 12 years updating and modernizing the home, so that it has the unique characteristics of a showplace inside and out, but also offers the comforts of a family home. Though this home is stately, when you walk in you immediately feel the cozy, casual, and very hip vibe. (See attached fact sheet on rooms for more specific information)
