I grew up in a family which dealt in antiques, every trip to the countryside often resulted in a purchase as did our vacations as well. This is a photo of my Dad at a major antiques show in London called The Grosvenor House Fair, held at the hotel on Park Lane in London in the ballroom, unfortunately the show is no longer in existence.I did not want to be an antique dealer, I joined the British Army and went to Sandhurst, our equivalent of West Point after high school. But I had injured my back just before I went and I got medically discharged when it became apparent I could not continue with the training. My plan had been to be an officer then go into business as a management trainee. Plan one sunk.Plan 2 go to college and train in hotel management. Well all the universities had starte...

Last week I posted some video footage of Chanticleer Gardens in Wayne, Radnor Township on Philadelphia's Main Line. However, it is such a great place I had additional footage and thought you might like to see a little more of these wonderful gardens. They make a great alternative to Longwood Gardens for a visit and can provide plenty of inspiration to you for your own yard. If you are interested in seeing any homes in the area surrounding the gardens give us a call, this is a very desirable place to live on Philadelphia's Main Line,close to Wayne with lots of restaurants, coffee shops and shopping of all sorts.

People clamor to live on Philadelphia's Main Line, and Wayne in Radnor Township is one of their favorite places with the Victorian Homes and walkable side streets. But what used to be a well hidden secret no longer is, Chanticleer Garden. Overlooked for a long time as people travelled through the area to Longwood Gardens, it has now come into its own. These gardens are one of our favorite and well worth a visit. Friday evening you can even bring a picnic and a bottle of wine to enjoy, but any time a visit is worth it. We find inspiration for our own garden every time we visit. Hope you enjoy this quick tour and will take the time to make a trip for yourself. And if after viewing this you too want to live on The Main Line, we can help you find a home, be it a condo, a townhouse, a large ...

Wayne is a town loved by many along the Main Line because of its victorian homes, walkability, small town feel, easy access to Philadelphia, and the choice of coffee shops, restaurants, bars and chich and stylish shopping available all within walking distance. Check out this short video of downtown Wayne in Radnor Township and let us know what you think.

Main Line Real Estate: Wayne PA on the Philadelphia Main Line is a place filled with history and a great place to call home. Wayne developed over time, it was not till the first tracks of the railroad being laid in 1832 bringing visitors and J Henry Askin bought the first of three farms in 1864 that the center of Wayne began to develop. You only have to look around to see the history is all around you, you just need to know where to look sometimes. Conestoga Road was originally an Indian Trail west to the Susquehanna in 1741, It was improved in 1769. The 13th milestone now presides over Wayne's major street crossing which is on the Philadelphia and Lancaster Turnpike built 1792-1794. Travellers shared the roads with flocks and merchadise transported in Conestoga wagons flowing to and fr...
