Ok it is no secret how much I love Loch Aerie. I last wrote about her April 21, 2016 when I thought she had sold.
I had wondered what was going on because no one had heard anything. I saw lights on a few times at night over the summer and the lawn was getting cut.
Well guess what?
As per Vista Today Loch Aerie has sold again. Apparently they are reporting that the deal fell through and their real estate agent from Berkshire Hathaway Mike Diggin submitted an offer on behalf of Steven and Dana Poirier of Downingtown and it was accepted.
I was able to confirm Vista’s story via, what else? Social Media!
Why yay? I do not know these people but they want to rehab it and have a wedding venue and maybe it sounds like the husband’s office as well.
I remember them from auction day, they were across the room from me.
Anyway, that is all the news fit to print on 700 Lancaster Avenue, Malvern, PA.
Tip of the hat to Vista for getting the scoop. I enjoyed my brief stint writing for them, I just couldn’t do it for free so that writing experience was unfortunately short lived.
I see this as positive news for Loch Aerie. I look forward to their opening day.
UPDATE: Here is what I was told about Loch Aerie and recent change of ownership:
“The high bidder did close and buy the property. It did not fall through.
He then sold it to the 3rd place bidder from the auction.”
Selfishly I hope the consider Frens & Frens out of West Chester for an architecture firm – they are the ones who restored Beechwood House in Bryn Mawr. I was on the Committee to Save Beechwood years ago – it is how I fell in love with Addison Hutton houses.
I will close with a video done on Beechwood for the restoration so people can se a modern adaptive reuse of an old mansion/home can work!
