VILLANOVA, PA 19085
Originally part of Ardrossan, a legendary 750-acre estate, Albermarle is a 17-acre retreat just 30 minutes from Philadelphia and its international airport and 90 minutes from New York City. Offering surprisingly low property taxes, this collection of masterfully restored and expanded, English-style stone buildings is set behind a gated entry and feels like your own 21st-century village:
A main residence
Pool and tennis court
Clock tower building now used by the owner as a small, well-outfitted headquarters for his business interests.
Every piece of the estate has been fine-tuned for today’s lifestyles and is complemented by picturesque hardscaping and landscaping and vista views of conservancy land. Importantly, this hidden world, located in one of the wealthiest ZIP codes in the United States, is a tremendous value compared to properties in New Jersey, Connecticut, New York and Washington, D.C., areas and also features low property taxes.
BEHIND THE RESTORATION
After meticulous renovations supervised by world-class artisans and architects, Albermarle is through-and-through a breathtaking property that effortlessly exceeds the most discriminating requirements for living and entertaining with a degree of aesthetic refinement unparalleled on the Eastern Seaboard.
Architect Lyman Perry and builder Joe Ottaviano of Pinemar Bulding Company, working with designer Linda Steinke, have personally fostered the evolution of Albermarle. Exquisite designs and architectural details of the highest order are seen all throughout the estate. Its natural landscape is complemented by handcrafted terraces, landscape features and horticultural designs by Chuck Gale. In all, Albermarle’s transformation into a world-class residence represents nearly three years of uninterrupted collaboration.
A visit to Albermarle Estate is essential to comprehend its uncompromising artistic vision. It is an epochal masterpiece, embracing a fusion of modernity and matchless historical pedigree.
