Houses With Names: Villanova’s Must See ‘Montangelica’ Hits the Market
Hark! The Mount of Angels has officially hit the market. Officially dubbed Montangelica, the 9,000-square-foot estate in Villanova is certainly a sight to behold, thanks in large part to a massive addition that includes, among other things, a grand ballroom.
The European-inspired gardens and grounds were designed by Doylestown-based landscape architect Carter van Dyke. You can take them all in from your expansive Ipe deck or the refurbished saltwater pool. There are some real stunning features inside the home, including the two-story center hall entryway with marble floors, the skylit eat-in kitchen with numerous windows and library with built-in shelves.
Let’s not kid ourselves, it’s all about the entertainment wing. The home was built by Robert Bruce in 1997 and the the wing was added four years later. What’s in an entertainment wing, you ask? Why, a grand ballroom with full gourmet catering kitchen, of course! The lower level features a gigantic home theater area, a wine cellar, a bar with a sitting area and his and hers exercise rooms, because you simply don’t want/need to work out with your significant other.
Looking to throw some seriously lavish parties or even to hang out your shingle in the wedding business? Montangelica is calling your name.
