Strictly Main Line

Narberth Real Estate Analysis

narberth-1

Extending over an area that’s only around half a square mile in size, the independent borough of Narberth is a serene community of tree-lined avenues, a charming downtown district and various homes and buildings that simply resonate with history.  A true Main Line classic, the borough is completely surrounded by Lower Merion Township yet has managed to retain a character all its own through the years.

Narberth real estate, like many other properties throughout the Main Line, is built along elegant traditional lines that hark back to the community’s Colonial, Victorian and turn-of-the-century days. Here, venerable Federals lie alongside fancier Queen Annes, quaint Dutch Colonials and cozy Cape Cods and bungalows – all of them nestled in a lush, tree-shaded setting, and quite a few of which feature well-maintained landscaped grounds.

A mere 20-minute drive from Philadelphia’s vibrant Center City area, Narberth is bisected by the railway tracks where the old Pennsylvania Railroad’s “main line” used to run.  Today, the borough is served by the R-5 Paoli/Doylestown SEPTA line, which makes regular and frequent stops at Narberth.

Narberth real estate has long been a favorite option among those who value the myriad comforts as well as the close-knit warmth of a small-town community, but who also appreciate being in close proximity to one of the nation’s  most dynamic urban centers.  One need not go far in search of first-rate shopping, dining and entertainment experiences, however – Narberth’s downtown and commercial districts along Narberth, Forrest, Essex, Haverford and Montgomery Avenues contain a small yet diverse collection of specialty shops, restaurants, services and performance venues.  From upscale boutiques to restaurants that run the gamut from family-friendly to casually elegant, you’ll find what you need right here.  Everything else can be had at Center City and other Main Line shopping centers such as the chic Suburban Square in neighboring Ardmore. What’s more, given Narberth’s compact size, practically everything in the community is within walking distance.  Owners of Narberth real estate enjoy the unbeatable convenience of strolling to their favorite caf or their morning cappuccino, walking the kids to school, and taking the short hop to the train station for a night out at Center City, among many other things.

Narberth packs a great deal into its relatively small area, including two recreational parks, the Sabine Avenue Tot-Lot and the Narberth Playground; the well-stocked Narberth Library; five places of worship; three fitness centers and historic points of interest such as the Rees-Price House.

Another major draw is its excellent public school system.  Narberth is served by the outstanding Lower Merion School District, as well as private schools such as the respected community landmark, St. Margaret School.
