Linden Hill, the Gladwyne estate once owned by Campbell Soup heir John T. Dorrance Jr., is on the market for $24.5 million.

The secluded, 50-plus-acre property at 1543 Monk Rd., with its 14,000-square-foot, 20-room Norman-style manor house, formal gardens, orchards, two heated pools, pool house, and tennis court, has been owned since 1999 by Robert L.

Robert Burch is chief executive officer of UgMO Technologies of King of Prussia, which develops irrigation systems.  He declined to be interviewed.
