Historic Camp Woods Estate Is a Once-in-a-Blue-Moon Turnkey Find

Share News:

Camp Woods Estate is surrounded by rich American history. Located in Ambler, Pennsylvania, the estate took its name from the adjacent 36-acre Camp Woods Land Preserve where General George Washington and his troops spent the fall of 1777 during the Revolutionary War. And the birthplace of America in Philadelphia’s Center City is only 16 miles north.

The massive 14,000-square-feet Camp Woods mansion and nearly eight-acre estate is a fusion of two distinct eras and a visual example of human reimagination. Though the circa 1913 façade reflects Old World charm and architecture, the interior is a stunning blend of modern New World luxuries and preserved historic detail from the early 20th century.

While Camp Woods Estate is only a 90-minute drive to New York City, it is also conveniently located near Wings Field Private Airport, country clubs, major retailers, and great restaurants. But with all the mansion has to offer, you may want to spend more time at home.

Inside Camp Woods Estate

Camp Woods is perfect for entertaining and taking life easy.

The open and airy centerpiece entryway leads guests to formal entertaining spaces as well as more intimate living areas suitable for smaller gatherings. Dazzling finishes run the gamut from white oak flooring, intricate stonework, and extensive cabinetry and millwork to custom energy efficient windows that mirror the look of the original 1913 versions.

The spacious chef’s kitchen is a foodie’s dream with a Calacatta Gold island and countertops as well as expansive cabinets, a butler’s pantry, and professional grade stainless steel appliances.

In addition to six bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and two partial baths, the mansion contains five gas fireplaces, an elevator, and a heated four-car garage. Special rooms range from a wine cellar, gym, and movie theater to two laundry rooms and even a custom dog grooming area.

Aside from a state-of-the-art security system, the mansion’s advanced system includes 28 zones of radiant heat and 13 zones of chilled water cooling.

Outside Camp Woods Estate

Via multiple access points, Camp Woods is ideally designed for melding indoor and outdoor entertaining and living. While several areas are suited to alfresco dining and enjoying the landscape, the sprawling 5,000-square-feet bluestone terrace with a saltwater swimming pool and two outdoor fireplaces offer endless possibilities.
