... was it splendor, or what we were bound with,
Deep in the time when summer lets down her hair?
Shadows we loved and the patterns they covered the ground with
Tapestries, mystical, faint in the breathless air...
- F. Scott Fitzgerald, 'This Side of Paradise'
Welcome to Albermarle. This remarkable historic estate is, without argument, the finest available property on Philadelphia's Main Line.
A treasure without peer, Albermarle was originally knit within Colonel Robert Montgomery’s legendary 750-acre estate, Ardrossan Farm, constructed in 1912. Albermarle's 17 acres are surrounded by conservancy land, and were utilized, prior to current renovations, as a working dairy farm.
Now, after a meticulous renovation regimen supervised by world-class artisans and architects, Albermarle is available for sale. This breathtaking property effortlessly exceeds the most discriminating requirements for living, entertaining and recreation, with a degree of aesthetic refinement unparalleled on the Eastern Seaboard.
Architect Lyman Perry and Builder Joe Ottaviano of Pinemar Building Company, working with designer Linda Steinke, have personally fostered the evolution of Albermarle -- implementing exquisite designs and architectural details of the highest order. The beauty of the estate's natural landscape is complemented by handcrafted terraces, landscape features and horticultural designs by Chuck Gale. In all, Albermarle's magical transformation into a world-class residence represents nearly three years of uninterrupted collaboration.
A viewing of Albermarle Estate is essential to comprehend its uncompromising artistic vision. It is an epochal masterpiece, embracing a fusion of modernity and matchless historical pedigree.
We welcome you to Albermarle's website, and trust you will value your introduction to this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
