About 415 Cottage Avenue

Situated in a waterfront enclave with commanding views and born as an antebellum-era summer retreat for Philadelphia’s elite, “Stanhame” is an Italianate stone masterpiece that has been described as “fine enough for the occupancy of princes.” While the burnished chestnut paneling, tall leaded glass windows and finely detailed coffered ceilings are indeed exquisite, the dramatic river views and fresh breezes sweeping across the veranda induce instant feelings of awe. Outdoor spaces are on par with the fine appointments of the interior. Because no expense was spared in either the original construction or a 2-year, full-scale restoration, you can rest assured that this magnificent mansion is poised to gracefully withstand another century-plus. A monumental hall runs from the motor court entry on the park side of the house to the grand river vista in front of the house. Prominent public rooms have handsome paneling, intricate flooring and a conversation-worthy fireplace mantle imported from Italy, believed to be over a thousand years old. A regal staircase rises to 6-7 bedrooms and a choice of sitting rooms on the upper levels. Three bedroom suites are sumptuous in design with dressing rooms and soaking tubs, two of which overlook the Delaware. For the most awe-inspiring 360-degree views, climb up to the belvedere, which is divine at sunset. Nestled amidst the European-inspired formal gardens, outbuildings include a one-bedroom carriage house with a full-sized kitchen, living and outdoor spaces as well as a climate-controlled garage. Opposite stands a 6-car garage providing for an overall total of 8 indoor spaces. Summer days at the gated 5.2-acre estate can be spent poolside and is supported by a nearby pool house, game room with bar, and a greenhouse, which could be used on a starry night as a magical setting for an intimate dinner. Winter delights include many working fireplaces and the opportunity to grow tropical plants. Enjoy the natural beauty of the river setting at any time of year, currently home to a pair of bald eagles often seen soaring along the sweeping river vista. The massive Aga range and commercial-grade SubZero support all lifestyles, especially formal entertaining. Stanhame is convenient to Philadelphia, the shore, a thriving southern New Jersey economy, and all of the exciting experiences the region has to offer. Discover this gem for yourself, enjoyed by past generations and those to come.
