Cheswold Carriage House

Haverford, PA

Greville Rickard, c.1928

This welcoming family house sits comfortably on the grounds of the renowned estate “Cheswold” which was designed by architects Furness & Evans in 1872 for Alexander Cassatt, president of The Pennsylvania Railroad. Designed for Cassatt’s daughter in the 1920s, the multiple wide arches reveal the building’s original function as a stable and later a carriage house. One of the only two structures to survive a devastating fire and subsequent demolition, the interiors of this much loved home have been completely rebuilt incorporating numerous period details while the exterior preserves many original materials.
