Castle
Beautiful and stately three-story, stone gate house designed by and built and for renowned architect Theophilus Chandler's estate and completed in 1911. The main property is no longer standing. The gate house which the neighbors call 'The Castle' is all that remains. Currently offering one room for guest rental on the 3rd floor in this listing (see photos) with a shared bathroom. Off street parking for one car and a little over a mile to Villanova University. Close to other schools in the area and two major highways. No cats.

An authentic gate house from a turn of the century estate with the architectural details of that era conserved. Thick stone walls and period wood work augmented by host Sam’s personal touches and art choices on the walls. Lots of leather bound book filled book cases. You are sharing some one’s home so that might not be everyone’s preference, but Sam makes you welcome and it is easy to come and go on your own schedule. He remembered my preference for cotton sheets over synthetic ones my second trip. Space heater kept the Rapunzil room warm during my December visit. Mattress is memory foam and soft so those who prefer a firm mattress may not be comfortable .Ceiling fan would provide circulation during a summer stay and two large windows cross ventilation. Don’t know how much protection the foot thick stone walls would provide against humid weather. Room is quite large with two walk in closets. ( 25 foot square perhaps). High ceiling . Probably 10ft plus. Lots of space around the king size bed. Stairs down to the second floor bathroom are steep but that adds to the room’s privacy. Proportions are to the architectural standard of a by gone age.

Enjoyed our stay. Sam was very responsive to all questions. The room was comfortable and clean. Also the room is quiet from outside noise. I would recommend this Airbnb without reservations.
