One of our newest project at Gardner/Fox is to renovate historic Stoneleigh in Villanova, PA. This 41-acre estate has been in the Haas’ family since 1964. Recently, the Estate has come into the keeping of the Natural Lands Trust. Under their care, the property will become an open garden for public use.
We will be on site for the next year, working on multiple projects on the grounds.
Gardner/Fox will be constructing a visitor’s center, in place of the existing pool house as well as creating a welcome kiosk and covered pavilion at the entrance to the garden.
In addition to the new construction Gardner/Fox will also be renovating the existing carriage house and tractor barn. Some of our other improvements include restoring the rose wall, modifying the rocky paths and repairing the various gates around the estate.
As part of the overall plan by Natural Lands Trust, the original Haas Home will be renovated to create a museum for future visitors.
We are very excited to be working on this historic project! Check back often for construction updates and information on Stoneleigh!
