To the Manor Born – or Bought!

Hawkswell estateThere was a time when well-heeled parents might show their affection for their children with the gift of a small trifle – perhaps a custom-built manor estate with room for family and friends. Maybe a little place like the Hawkswell estate would suffice, as its 37 rooms, 13 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and 18,000 square feet of living space would provide adequate room for a proper lifestyle. Not to the manor born? No worries. This incredible home can be bought — for just $1.8 million.

Constructed in 1905, the home is a Gothic Revival-inspired English Arts and Crafts manor home in Upper Dublin Township that has been declared eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. Designed by Wilson Eyre, Jr., it was commissioned by Sarah Drexel Fell Van Renssalaer for her daughter Mae and husband Howard Huston Henry. In 1976, the house underwent a $1 million renovation, restoring its original grandeur. A perfect place for gracious living by a single owner, the home’s existing staircases and interior layout also offer great potential for creating three individual condominium residences. Tempted?
