The spectacular Arbor Hill estate in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, widely considered one of the regionís most prominent estates, has been listed for sale at $30 million by Christieís International Real Estate affiliate Long & Foster.

Located on 70 picturesque acres, approximately a 30-minute drive from Philadelphia, the 40,000-square-foot modern mansion was designed by world-renowned architect Rafael Vi?oly. Vi?oly also created the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia, the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the U.S. Senate, and served as master planner for New York Universityís new Abu Dhabi campus in United Arab Emirates.

The distinctive eight-bedroom, eight bath main residence is built around an impressive Belgium stone courtyard. The house is aglow with contemporary qualities suitable for display of grand art collections, yet it is also perfect for a more casual and intimate lifestyle. No expense was spared in the design of the exquisite indoor and outdoor materials. Throughout the homeís interior are accents of Venetian plaster, limestone, oak floors and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Divided into three elegant wings, the interior of the magnificent residence was created to maximize views of the mesmerizing courtyard and the exquisite grounds through floor-to-ceiling windows in all rooms and the interior corridors that face the courtyard.

Arbor Hill has been enrolled in Christieís Bespoke Marketing Program, a highly specialized, custom-designed marketing program reserved for the most important residences around the globe. Visit to learn more.
