The seven-acre property represents a rare undeveloped and high character parcel of land in the heart of the Main Line. The exceptional natural topography and landscape features of the site, with its location a half mile from Villanova University, Lancaster Avenue, and Route #476, provide the perfect setting to create a unique and exclusive residential enclave.
The property was originally developed in 1855 by naturalist A. J. Gallatin. In 1911, cotton magnate George McFadden purchased the property and renamed it Bloomfield. In 1923 McFadden hired renowned architect Horace Trumbauer to re-design the property in the style of a late 17th century French chateau. The 14,000-square foot mansion received critical acclaim for its architecture, construction details, and formal gardens.
Most of the property was sold off for residential development in 1984, and the mansion suffered a fire in 2012 and was lost. GPX recently purchased the last remaining piece of the property and is currently in the planning stages of development.
