Craftsmanship perfected for over one hundred years.


In the nineteenth century

the Vaughan family began a legacy
of building in Philadelphia as shipwrights
in the Kensington shipyards.

For the past forty years,

Chip Vaughan has carried on this family tradition of craftsmanship, with outstanding new
custom homes and communities on Philadelphia’s Main Line, and in the surrounding suburbs in
Chester, Delaware and Montgomery Counties.

In 2013, Tad Vaughan, Chip’s son, joined the company. With a degree in architecture and
years of hands-on construction experience, Tad brings energy, enthusiasm and
a fresh and innovative sense of design to the (drafting) table.

Without strong relationships, our business collapses.

“We built a new home with Vaughan and the experience was incredibly easy and enjoyable. We absolutely love our new home. Vaughan provided step-by-step assistance in designing the layout for our house and helped us create our dream home. The quality of construction is exceptional and the detailed craftsmanship produces an exquisite final product. The time estimates were extremely accurate and despite significant adverse weather during the building process, we moved into our home exactly on our initial target date. Perhaps the most enjoyable part of our experience was working with Vaughan’s top notch people. From the selections manager to the construction foreman, everyone involved in building our home provided a personalized touch. Vaughan turned what many describe as an overwhelming experience into a pleasant process that never became stressful.”

“We have always lived in new homes…we have built five to be exact. When we first began our search, we could not find any homes to meet our needs with the quality we were accustomed to. We decided to take a look at a Chip Vaughan home.After visiting Springhouse, we knew it was for us. The house had everything we wanted and more, with quality and design features we had never seen before. It had everything possible for modern day luxury.

Several years later, we needed a little more space….so we again came to Chip for an addition to this gorgeous home. Chip told us anything was possible. We even added an elevator. Chip and his team were so easy to work with. They had the vision and good sense of what we wanted, gave us plans and had the addition ready in ninety days. They were responsive at all times seven days a week. We have never worked with anyone as qualified. We love our home!”

“There is no place like home’…Most especially if your home was built by Vaughan! We have built a new home in the past, only to experience one headache after another. This time around, we found this to be the most pleasurable experience. From the agreement of sale, the design process up to and including settlement, we were completely satisfied and could not be happier with the choice we made.Chip Vaughan made sure that our dream house became our reality, working with us every step of the way. We truly love the house we have built and do believe ‘there is no place like home’ ”
