Radnor sets meeting to review Ardrossan plans
Meeting set on plan for Ardrossan
RADNOR Radnor Township announced it will hold a special public meeting on Tuesday to review plans for the Ardrossan Estate.
The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Municipal Building, 301 Iven Ave. Officials will review proposed subdivision plans for the property, at the corner of Newtown and Darby Paoli Roads.
The heirs to the estate have proposed selling 16 1.25-acre lots at a cost of $1.5 million each.
Last year, Radnor bought 72 acres of the property, originally owned by Hope Montgomery Scott, for $11.6 million to be preserved as open space.
The 50-room Georgian mansion designed by Horace Trumbauer, which is still in use, inspired the classic movie The Philadelphia Story staring Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, and James Stewart.
