A “special exception provision” makes this property very unique…and allows for the conversion of this home into a hotel, Bed and Breakfast and/or an event space.
DeSantis and Crowl describe this unique property below:
“Second Tamora” was built in 1898 as a quiet retreat and summer home outside the hustle and bustle of the city. This charming and stately home was named by its founder and creator, Edward B. Smith, of the Philadelphia investment firm, Smith Barney, who also happened to be a real estate mogul and planning and development visionary. Responsible for bringing the railway to Gwynedd Valley from Philadelphia, Smith had a keen sense of his town’s history, and he recognized the uniqueness and cache of the area that residents still enjoy today. Elegant “country” living can be enjoyed in this grand stone manor home offering 13,000 sq. ft. of living space sited on nearly 3.5 park-like acres in the heart of Gwynedd Valley. This home will impress you the moment you drive through the gated entrance down a long, winding, tree-lined driveway with a circular courtyard, fountain, and 4-car garage…
This property could become the next great addition to some lucky visionary’s business portfolio. It is the PERFECT venue for a romantic getaway (think B&B or Inn), or host to any special occasion such as a wedding, baby shower, anniversary dinner, and more (think private club or special events venue). It is situated in a very prominent area of Montgomery County, surrounded by large corporations, schools and universities, and countless things to do. It’s original owner, Edward Smith (of Smith Barney fame), brought the rail from Philadelphia to Gwynedd Valley, so it’s very easy to get to and from Center City Philadelphia. In addition to the city of Philadelphia, it’s also in close proximity to Bucks County and Main Line Philadelphia, offering guests plenty to do and explore!
