Just 15 miles west of downtown Philadelphia, along the "Main Line" of the former Pennsylvania Railroad, these verdant suburbs offer "world-class arts, culture and dining, top-rated school systems, and acres of green space and walking trails.” (Fortune Magazine)
“Now that my kids can walk and bike to school and stores, our life is much better!”
“Living in a walkable community gives me the independence I crave.”
“The less I play chauffeur, the more time I can spend doing what I want to do.”
Many Main Line communities offer a healthy, walkable lifestyle in settings ranging from city-like to beautifully wooded and private.
Narberth, Ardmore, Bryn Mawr, Wayne and Malvern each have a town center within walking distance. Easy access to public transit and the people and places you love means more pleasure in simple errands, and more time for the things you enjoy. At Sage Realty, we know the most walkable neighborhoods in each Main Line community, and the prices these sustainable, sought-after communities can command.
In the late 1900s, the Main Line extended further west to include Strafford, Devon, Berwyn, Daylesford, Paoli, and Malvern. Some say the Main Line extends as far west as Exton, and south to the horse farms of Newtown Square and to "everyone's hometown" of Media. Seems everyone wants to live on the Main Line.
As you follow the SEPTA Paoli/Thorndale train from Overbrook, Merion, Narberth, Wynnewood and Ardmore through Haverford, Bryn Mawr, Rosemont, Villanova, Radnor, St. Davids and Wayne, you discover that each Main Line town has a unique personality.
