Aldie Mansion began its history as a beloved private residence. Commissioned by William and Martha Mercer as an ode to the English Tudor manor, this stately 1927 mansion evokes a time in America when craftsmanship reached an art form.Under the watchful gaze of the Aldie gargoyles, intricate brickwork, vintage leaded glass, antique tiles and charming garden ornaments have been faithfully preserved as part of Bucks County’s unique heritage . In fact, William Mercer himself sculpted many of the mansion’s architectural details. The Mercers were renowned hosts during their years at Aldie, and they regularly welcomed international luminaries into their home. As you stroll about, it is easy to recall the spirited evenings when Groucho Marx joked at the dinner table, Isadora Duncan pirouetted in the garden and the Von Trapp family caroled in the Great Hall. An invitation to Aldie meant the anticipation of an affair to remember. Today, through the preservation efforts of Heritage Conservancy, Aldie Mansion extends its legacy of grandeur and hospitality to you.
