1 Bedroom , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Villanova, Pennsylvania
Beautiful and stately three-story, stone gate house designed by and built and for renowned architect Theophilus Chandler's estate and completed in 1911. The main property is no longer standing. The gate house which the neighbors call 'The Castle' is all that remains. Currently offering one room for guest rental on the 3rd floor in this listing (see photos). Off street parking and a little over a mile to Villanova University. Close to other schools in the area and two major highways. No cats.
