Schubert, who had built a 13 home development at Ship Estates the previous year. He selected the name because the Pickering Hunt Club used to go fox hunting with hounds in this section.

The homes today range from approximately 2,100-2,600 sqft. with a median of approximately 2,400 sqft. Median lot size is approximately four-fifths of an acre. Access to the Pickering Hunt Estates neighborhood is from Uwchlan Avenue Hunt Club Lane or Davis Road.
