Description

On the site of what was once the primary milking barn for the famed Ayrshire cattle, now find 4 approved building sites totaling 7.923 acres with adjacent protected area. Offered as a single purchase and for the first time since the division of the storied Montgomery Scott Wheeler estate. The Montgomery Scott estate was named after Hope Montgomery Scott , a member of one of Philadelphia's most prominent families. The estate was established in the early 1900s and quickly became known for its herd of Ayshire cows, which were named after the family's land holdings in Scotland. The cows were known for their high milk yield and excellent butterfat content, and the Montgomery Scotts became famous for their high-quality dairy products.But the estate was much more than just a working farm. It was also a center of social activity, with the Montgomery Scotts hosting lavish parties and events for their friends and family. The estate's impressive stone buildings, including Holly Tree House and the primary dairy barn, were the backdrop for many of these gatherings and are still standing today, a testament to the family's lasting legacy. In addition to their agricultural pursuits, the Montgomery Scotts were also known for their philanthropy. Hope Montgomery Scott was a prominent supporter of the arts, and her husband Edgar, was a passionate conservationist. Together, they worked to preserve open spaces and wildlife habitats in Pennsylvania and beyond. Today, the Montgomery Scott estate is considered one of the most important historic properties in the Philadelphia area. It's buildings, landscapes, and collections tell the story of a bygone era, and the estate's legacy continues to inspire and influence those who visit it.
