For Sale/Rent

On the Market: The Most Expensive House for Sale in Montgomery County Right Now

You can buy historic Lynnewood Hall for less than you will pay for this sumptuous newer estate in Gladwyne. You'll get far more bedrooms but far fewer modern amenities.

So what’s on offer for the money-is-no-object house-hunter right now?

This: 32 acres of private land on two lots in Gladwyne. On those two lots sit this magnificent English Gothic Revival mansion, the Estate at Maple Hill, completed in 2009.

Forecourt

If you’re the sort of person who enjoys throwing large charity fundraisers, you should give this place a good going over, for it has everything you might possibly want to entertain your guests while they visit.

You’ll find a tennis court on the northeast corner of this house’s lot. You’ll also find a nature/ATV trail, stream and wildflower meadow elsewhere on those 32 acres. A perimeter of mature flowering and evergreen trees rings the estate to ensure maximum privacy.

You can put your VIP guests up in the guest suite, located over three of the house’s seven garage bays. It has several bedrooms, a living room and full bath.

And both it and the step-down informal family room share a wet bar.

Notice that we haven’t even gotten to the private quarters yet? If you want to see the sumptuous master suite and its four other bedrooms, you will just have to call the listing agent to arrange a showing.

Upper terrace

About the only thing you can’t do at this sprawling estate is put 50-plus guests up for the night. There’s a house on the market in Elkins Park that has room for that – 55 bedrooms, to be exact. It’s a landmark, and it sells for less than this place. But it has less in the way of amenities and needs major fixing up. This mansion’s better outfitted for modern living and move-in ready.
