Comfortably nestled in the tony reaches of Philadelphia’s Chestnut Hill neighborhood, Copperwood Estate sits on five rolling acres at the edge of the nation’s largest urban reserve: Fairmount Park. The home was originally constructed in 1929 by the prominent architecture firm of Tilden, Register and Pepper for the successful attorney Schofield Andrews with many Deco flourishes. The estate was later passed to the socialite Eleanor Widener Dixon, who completed several renovations with the assistance of Horace Trumbauer, the architect of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Currently it serves as the private residence of a noted Commercial Real Estate developer.

Copperwood Estate boasts 18,000 square feet of livable space in the comfort of its French Norman styling organized around a large, square courtyard whose front wall borders the street. The mature plantings and tall oaks accentuate the nobility of the home’s posture and site placement. Long flagstone terraces promote the ground’s walkability with azelas blossoming in late spring. The rubble-stone walls of brown colored stone are arranged in a random pattern and are capped with a corbled brick cornice, brick dormers and a Ludowici clay-tile roof. The soaring turrets with conicle towers provide the property with the fairy tale quality of Cair Paravel.

The home is evenly distributed and pleasantly spaced. Hand-forged iron stairway rails, custom Samuel Yellin hinges and door handles as well as hand carved balusters are but a few of the amazing architectural details. There is an elegant dining room with oversized French doors which open onto a formal flagstone terrace, as well as an overlarge stone fireplace with decorative mantle. The dining room posesses custom oak paneling throughout. There is the traditional long French Country kitchen that opens upon the terrace. The billiards room doubles as a library with legions of shelves for private collections and first editions. The Prohibition era false bookcase is in fact a door that leads to a “speakeasy bar" that surely serves as the foundation for a night of revelry.

The ballroom boasts soaring ceilings and walls completed with authentic 16th century paneling from a King James Hunting Lodge. The six-foot fireplace can house custom cut four foot logs and the hand carved mantle is frankly exquisite. The home also has a fully functional bowling alley, a gorgeous full-sized pool with limestone terrace, a tennis court and numerous functional out buildings. The home has 8 bedrooms, many of which are suites, and 8 full bathrooms. Much of the home has been functionally updated to the standards of the 21st century with Lutron switches, extensive tech cabling for sound and video as well as central air. The free standing 3 bedroom guest cottage is accentuated by the attached one bedroom overnight quarters directly adjacent to the raised herb gardens off of the kitchen. The most impressive current renovation is the long office wing suite with two spacious offices and custom oak flooring with radiant heated floors, a conference room with tiled floor and its own private entrance. There is also a three-car garage with automatic doors.

The historic Chestnut Hill community is home to a bustling commercial district for clever shopping and delicious foods. Long the home of some of Philadelphia’s finest homes and estates, Copperwood stands above the rest for its spacious lands, gracious amenities and the individual quality of its execution. There are many private schools of impressive distinction and an active social scene. Chestnut Hill is just a few miles from downtown Philadelphia and one of the first resort communities of the finest downtown families at the end of the 19th century. Situted at the foot of Wissahickon Valley Park, the valley hosts 1,800 acres as part of Philadelphia's 10,500-acre park, one of the largest urban park systems in the world.

A home fit for a small foundation or non-profit. The expansiveness of the grounds and interiors would be exceptional for any group or gathering. It would also make an extraordinary private residence of the highest order.
