Stay in a 'Castle' in Villanova - Main Line Home near universities and highway

Castle -
1 Bedroom , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 2
Villanova, Pennsylvania
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). Off street parking and a little over a mile to Villanova University. Close to other schools in the area and two major highways. No cats.

I stayed here for almost 2 months and there are a few things that the owner should do for the sake of protecting us the occupant. If he takes care of these things then it shows he wants to improve his dormitory style home. 1)...More
