Strictly Main Line

Bryn Mawr Real Estate Analysis

bryn-mawr-4

With its small-town warmth and charm, rural, wooded setting, centuries-old history and atmosphere of relaxed elegance, Bryn Mawr is the embodiment of the very best qualities of the Main Line.  Located approximately 20 minutes from Center City, Bryn Mawr extends over three different townships and two counties.  The majority of the community’s area is in Lower Merion, while the rest is in Radnor and Haverford Townships. Bryn Mawr homes for sale are in themselves some of the very best Main Line homes available  Real estate here is classic Main Line – a diverse collection composed of dignified two-story stone Colonials, elegant Victorians, custom-built luxury townhouses, and sprawling manors’ all evocative of traditions that have endured for centuries.

Bryn Mawr, which means “big hill” in Welsh, began as a farm built by Welsh Quaker Rowland Ellis in 1704, who named it after his original farm near Dolgellau in Wales.  It would remain a farming community for most of its early history, up until the Pennsylvania Railroad began laying down tracks in the 1800s.  Throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the railroad developed the community and enticed Philadelphia’s elite to build their grand, country estates on Bryn Mawr’s idyllic landscape of gentle hills, rushing streams and wooded knolls.  While those grand estates have since been partitioned into smaller lots, there are still quite a few Bryn Mawr homes today that were once part of these vast holdings, remnants of a lavish, gilded past.

While Bryn Mawr homes for sale are elegant and distinctive, it’s not for its real estate that the community is most famous for.  Known across the international community for being a center for academic excellence, Bryn Mawr is the seat of the renowned Bryn Mawr College, one of the country’s and the world’s most esteemed institutes for higher education.  The college is one of the country’s highest-rated liberal arts colleges and its beautiful campus extends over 135 acres, featuring 40 buildings built in the Collegiate Gothic style.  Established as a legacy of Joseph W. Taylor, the college first opened its doors to students in 1885 and continues to define the character of its surrounding community to this day.

The community enjoys the advantages of being close to a prestigious selection of private schools, among which are the Shipley School, Baldwin School, Haverford School, Sacred Heart School, and The Agnes Irwin School. Public schools here are equally outstanding as well.  Bryn Mawr is served by three different school districts’ the Lower Merion, Radnor, and Haverford’ all of which are highly regarded.

There’s much more to Bryn Mawr than schools, however.  Along its main artery, Lancaster Avenue, is an eclectic selection of shopping and dining establishments, services and one-of-a-kind cultural and historic venues such as the Bryn Mawr Film Institute and the Harriton House.
