GLENDOWER - CIRCA 1700'S
Presenting “Glendower” Estate - Gwynedd's Finest Estate Property

Glendower exudes character, charm & elegance at every turn and is truly immersed in history. Documented as one of the most important colonial homes of Philadelphia and its “neighborhood” and dates back to a patent granted directly to William Penn in 1699. Largest of the original four Evans homes remained with the family from 1699 to 1812, however, its well-preserved legacy of owners includes Philadelphia wealth, society and influence in every generation. Pre-dating the American Revolution, folklore has it that William Penn himself was an overnight visitor. One of the last of its kind for historic importance!

Arched fieldstone entry walls flank your “Welcome Home” leading to a sweeping driveway as you are immediately taken aback by the grandeur of this historic homestead. Perched on 5.7 acres and complemented by stately trees and lush gardens, this elegant home is nestled in a secluded settling that can’t be duplicated.

The history and folklore includes George Washington stopping by en route to Valley Forge, Forefathers of the Declaration of Independence escaped to Glendower Farm for county retreats, a stop on the underground railroad, Abe Lincoln’s Grandmother resided for a time, hand written sheep skin deeds used to convey its ownership through the years.

Formal living areas offer original wide plank random width hardwood floors, high ceilings, tall windows with deep window sills, detailed moldings and built-in hutches and cabinetry. Cozy-up to any of the 7 wood burning fireplaces. Escape to the library or kick-up and watch the game in the family Room, be entertained in the music room, greet guests in the formal entry hall and host grand events in the interconnecting living, dining and music Rooms.
