Welcome to Wyndmoor
A desirable community with a suburban rural mix-feel. Unexpected statues and remnants from the former Whitemarsh Hall appear throughout the community.
A very clean, quiet, and friendly community with lots to do in the surrounding towns of Chestnut Hill, Glenside, Flourtown, and Ambler. Quite unexpectedly, preserved artifacts from the past can be observed on homeowner’s lawns, in their backyards, and as entrance gates to various neighborhoods. These historic remnants were once part of the 300-acre since-demolished mansion called Whitemarsh Hall.
The mansion was demolished in 1980, and a development of modern townhouses called Stotesbury Estates was built on the property. The massive limestone pillars, which were part of the mansion's front portico, were left on site as a tribute, along with the large belvedere at the back of the home. Small remnants of the huge gardens still exist today, including a fountain, several statues, stairs, and pieces of low stone fencing and walls. The twin pillars of the estate's main gate, which was one mile from the back of Whitemarsh Hall, are still standing on Douglas Road off of Willow Grove Avenue, minus the steel gates. The gatehouse on Douglas Road behind the main entrance pillars, also remains, now converted to a private residence.
