Parts of the Main Line land known as Ardrossan are close to getting a new owner–one that would likely preserve its current character and open space. Radnor Township is said to be “near a deal to buy part of the property,” specifically Wheeler Field and a 22-acre stretch at Newtown and Darby-Paoli roads, reports the Main Line Times.
Potential development plans as sketched out by heir Edward Scott III have caused strife in the township and concerns about multiple new dwellings and the new residents those dwellings would attract. The drama has been covered internationally, from the UK to the Huffington Post, which featured a slideshow of a house that is not, in fact, part of the drama. Oh well.
