Real estate sales in Greater Philadelphia’s desirable suburbs have been surging lately as millennials leave the city to start families, and baby boomers look to downsize into easy maintenance homes. Ambler’s latest addition of luxury homes right near its downtown district, Mattison Estate, began accepting orders in June. Since then, many of the available homes have already been snapped up by eager buyers.
Thanks to the iconic Lindenwold Castle, a key feature of the estate, many home buyers are already familiar with this new housing community’s location. By combining modern architecture with preserved historic charm, Mattison Estate has landed on the right notes of understated luxury. Select homes are available for move-in as soon as December 2020, with prices starting in the mid $600,000s. Home buyers looking to move in 2021 can also reserve their homes.
Located at 701 S. Bethlehem Pike on the corner of Lindenwold Avenue and
Bethlehem Pike, the property was originally established as the primary
residence for Dr. Richard Van Zeelust Mattison, who became one of Ambler’s
founders. He built many of the homes in Ambler including Lindenwold Castle,
the focal point of the Estate.
Recent years saw continued efforts on behalf of the community and Upper Dublin Township to see Lindenwold Castle and this beautiful estate preserved. “The ability to preserve many features of this once elegant estate is one of the reasons we were so attracted to this site in addition to its premier location,” said Rob Fluehr, Director of Residential Development at The Goldenberg Group. Millions have been spent saving St. Mary’s Lake, the castle, perimeter walls, and two gate houses, while 17 acres of the 50-acre property have been preserved for green and/or open garden space.
To help revitalize this Estate, The Goldenberg Group partnered with the region's renowned artisan builders, Guidi Construction Management, and top-rated real estate, mortgage and title brokerage, Houwzer.
Homeowners are increasingly drawn to communities with a high degree of walkability, according to recent data from the National Association of Realtors. Mattison Estate is just a few minutes’ walk from the many shops and trendy eateries that line East Butler Avenue in downtown Ambler. Commuters are similarly well serviced with a direct route suburban train to nearby Philadelphia.
Inside these homes, meticulous detail has been lavished on every room, and home buyers can choose from models and upgrades that speak to their individual preferences. Gourmet kitchens and sumptuous baths allow for multiple modes of relaxation, while lofted sitting rooms and private offices exist for quiet retreats. Hardwood floors and dramatic high ceilings ensure these homes are inviting spaces for intimate gatherings.
Various home models include deck access or optional covered porches, while the estate has been meticulously planned to provide green walking space, guest parking, and an easy, walkable journey to multiple restaurants and bars downtown.
The Mattison Estate sales office is now open adjacent to the historic Ambler Theater at 106 E Butler Ave in Ambler. Interested buyers can schedule a virtual or in-person appointment at mattisonestate.com.
