Overview

Welcome to wonderful Wyncote!This idyllic suburban community began originally as farmland just 12 miles outside of Philadelphia in the 18th and early 19th centuries. As the railroads began connecting far distant towns in the mid-19th Century, wealthy Philadelphians began constructing estates with easy access to the downtown Philadelphia markets, yet far removed from the crowds & smog of the industrial city. Names like Wanamaker, Curtis, Barker, Hewett & Wharton built grand estates along the banks of the Tookany Creek within easy walking distance to the North Pennsylvania Railroad.Henry K. Walt is one such person that originally purchased a 9 acre tract of land along Greenwood Avenue. He constructed his estate (Bend Terrace) in 1892, high on a hill overlooking formal gardens & ponds, surrounded by a lovely stone wall. Mr. Walt was a successful financier & President of the Jenkintown National Bank. Tucked at the very corner of the estate, he constructed 2 sets of lovely Victorian Tudor Twins, likely to provide housing for the workers who were coming to service all the larger estates.328 Greenwood Avenue was designed by the architectural firm of Heacock & Hokanson and constructed in 1899. My clients have an original photograph of the house just after it was completed! These were very ample properties for workers of the day, offering the same timber & stucco details one finds on the significantly larger estates of the time. With over 2,500SF spread over 3 floors, it remains as beautiful today as when built.The Walt estate was sold, yet the majority of the lands became what is now Robinson Park! This 7-acre park surrounds 328 Greenwood Avenue and provides the most remarkable vistas & privacy (without the taxes!). There is even a community vegetable garden in the park should one wish to become actively involved in the park & community.One enters the property through an opening in the stone walls to a brick driveway ample enough to hold 3 cars.
