This beautiful, 43.5-acre property at 452 South Roberts Road is now for sale just nine miles west of Philadelphia in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. If your clients are looking for a site to expand or establish facilities this is a unique opportunity to do so.
Villanova University, Bryn Mawr College, Rosemont College, and Bryn Mawr Hospital are all located within two miles of the property, while the zip code had the fifth-highest home prices in Pennsylvania in 2020. The average household income in the area is $105,000. The Radnor school district ranked among the top ten in the state.
The property is currently zoned Planned Institutional, allowing college, school, religious, or student infirmary use by right. By special exception, a home for children/elderly/handicapped/indigent, a medical or health center, convalescent home, or nursing home is permitted. As an accessory use, playing fields or recreational facilities, dormitories, and other student or faculty dwellings are permitted. Single or multifamily residential use would require a rezoning.

R1A, and R2 which include one acre, 30,000 sf, and 20,000 sf lots respectively. Preliminary drawings show that 33 or 32 lots could be placed on the property are included in the MLS documents.
The asking price of $17.5M is for a transaction involving a reasonable (+/-60 day) due diligence and a +/- 30 day period until closing with no approval contingencies. The owner is also willing to consider transactions that involve approval contingencies. If you are interested in such a transaction then the price and deposits should recognize the fact that the owner will be required to bear carrying costs, loss of interest, and the risk of approvals, amongst other things.
