About Heather Dougherty-Harris

Our family has lived in this home for over 10 years. It is truly a family home. We love this home so much we have decided to keep it and share it with others as we spend most of the school year in Florida. My husband was born and raised in Pennsylvania and I was born and raised in Florida. It is such a blessing to be able to spend time with both families as we raise our four children. Our time in Pennsylvania is so special, we look forward to living in Florida and visiting the northeast as often as we can. In the meantime we look forward to sharing this amazing one of a kind, family home with you and your guests.

Heather Dougherty-Harris purchased this estate in 2004

Why Heather Dougherty-Harris chose Montgomery County

We purchased this property because of the unique beauty that it possessed. The location was also a huge selling point for us. We are so close to Philadelphia, Washington D.C., New York City and Baltimore. The home is also one mile from a major road, so it makes it very easy to travel anywhere quickly. Philadelphia Premium outlets are a mile away as well as the nations largest mall is only 20 min away. Moving to Pennsylvania in 1999 after graduating from Chiropractic school, my husband and I both wanted to live in the community where our practice was located. This house was the perfect fit for our family and the extensive entertaining we do.

What makes this estate unique

We purchased this property because of the unique beauty that it possessed. The high end finish internally and the beauty of the outside. We also loved being on a cul-de-sac, which gave us additional peace and serenity. The view from the living room is beautiful in any season: winter snow, fall foliage, spring blossoms and summer's green. Sitting in the main living area allowed us to enjoy the beauty of the northeast.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Heather



I wanted to let you know that we very much enjoyed staying in your house and enjoying Thanksgiving with our children, their spouses and grandchildren. It was absolutely great to have so much space as the two teenager boys and two college age boys took up the basement rooms and enjoyed the games, the movie theatre among other things while we, th grandparents, occupied the master bedroom and the two couples with their vey young ones were upstairs. It was also very much appreciated by all that there were so many toys and other things to occupy the little ones. We made good use of the kitchen to feed everyone – in short, the house was perfect for the large group that we were. And so, thank you for making it available to us and for allowing us (me and Richard to check in a little earlier and check out a little later. That was very, very helpful. We had to wait an additional two hours at the airport due to a flight delay and so we were there a total of almost 6 ours!. However, the important is that we returned home safely, be it very very late, midnight in California which would be 3 o’clock Pennsylvania time. Oh well..



Joe was absolutely wonderful. He was very prompt in picking us up both ways and enjoyable to talk to. He is an interesting person with interesting points of view. Thank you again for putting us in contact with him.



All in all, a very happy and enjoyable experience.



So with this, again many thanks for enabling us to have a very positive experience in your house. Who knows? We might do this again.

Couldn't of been better hosts.

  • 5 of 5

My now wife and I are on the way to the airport for our honeymoon leaving 4050 prospect hill lane. We had our wedding at Heather's house there. We had no idea what we were doing and getting into at all. Every single last minute issue was so easily handled and helped with. Her staff that tend to the home, Mark and Kelli, were so helpful. Not a single complaint or scuff once. We ran behind on everything. The wedding started 2 hours late and they stayed a additional 4 hours than expected for extremely reasonable costs. I can't express how great everyone was. All the way down to a "minor" noise incident ...or maybe 2, quite late in the evening that resulted in a few local officers stopping by. Mark handled everything and left me and my wife with nothing to concern ourselves with. I highly recommend this location for just about anything. From just needing a large home to rent or hosting a event. A+

We'll be returning again to this house! Everyone loved it!!

Lovely home, perfect for large familes or groups

  • 4 of 5

Our group consisted of 4 families with children ranging in age from 11 to 3. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and the home accommodated us perfectly. The kids especially loved the movie theatre.

We visited Hershey park for a day (about an hour and a half away) and the kids had a blast. A little too hot. Probably would plan a fall visit next time.

My only issue with the house would be the outside (not that it was really an issue). The deck and gazebo area wasn't very clean and needed some updating. We didn't use those areas because of that reason.

Overall, the house was lovely and we enjoyed ourselves. Thank you!

Absolutely beautiful property perfect for large family group.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect to accommodate our large family group and provided great entertaining spaces. The children enjoyed the play areas while the adults particularly enjoyed the outdoor patio and fire pit. Everybody enjoyed relaxing in the theater room and making popcorn in the machine. The arcade-type video games got a lot of playtime, but the pool table wasn't used much. Strolls around the grounds were a popular morning activity. We had outings planned each day to sight-see & visit family in the West Chester area. The property was a further drive to our daily destinations than we expected, adding about an hour extra drive time each each way each day. There was adequate bedspace for everyone and there was only one complaint about the comfort of the beds (too soft mattress in upstairs left bedroom). We did have to coordinate shower schedules, particularly in the upstairs area where there is only 1 bathroom. The first day the house was much too hot when we arrived due to the fact the Heat/AC was not working properly .We had no control over house temperature controls.We were surprised it was controlled by the owner remotely from Fla.The first night was horrible due to everyone being tired and the house was so hot. The home owner sent a very nice A/C guy who worked his magic to bring the temperature into a comfortable range. We had a very happy time there and would recommend the home to others.
