Garden Accents is honored and delighted to present these fabulous, historically rich garden antique & vintage elements from Sunnybrook, the Isaac H. Clothier, Jr estate which was located at 601 Matsonford Road in Villanova. Sunnybrook’s grounds which included a fantastic rose garden and pool were documented and registered with the Smithsonian.
Isaac H. Clothier, Jr. (Nov 12, 1875 - April 27, 1961), was the son of Isaac Hallowell Clothier (Nov 5, 1837 - Jan 15, 1921). Isaac H. Clothier was the co-founder of Strawbridge & Clothier, the family owned major department store located at 8th and Market Streets in Philadelphia. The store was founded on July 1, 1868 and was sold to The May Company in 1996.
Mr. & Mrs. Isaac Clothier, Jr. developed the elaborate Sunnybrook estate originally built in 1813 on fifty-seven acres. They employed some of the best-known Philadelphia architectural firms of the day, including Horace Trumbauer and Eyre & McIlvaine to add to the house and buildings on the grounds of what became, in Clothier’s time, a 70-acre estate. The estate passed from the Clothier family sometime after Isaac Jr.’s passing in 1961.
These garden antiques from that estate continued to be cherished and came to us from the estate of Isaac H. Clothier IV who passed away at the age of 89 in Bryn Mawr in August of 2021. He was the great grandson of Isaac H. Clothier.
