Bala-Cynwyd Real Estate Analysis

bala1

Like the rest of Lower Merion, Bala Cynwyd was settled by Welsh Quakers and was once part of Pennsylvania’s storied Welsh Tract. Once the two different towns of Bala and Cynwyd, the village has a history that stretches back to Penn’s landing and the establishment of the Tract in the 1680s. Today, traces of this history are still very much apparent throughout the community. Strolling down the village’s earliest established commercial area along Bala and Montgomery Avenues, where you will see everything from brick Victorian storefronts to the Art Deco Bala Theater, is like taking a walk into the past.

As with most if not all Main Line communities, Bala Cynwyd is steeped in the traditions and architectural styles of an elegant, bygone age. Here, you will still find many of the two-story stone Colonial Revival mansions that Philadelphia’s leading families built throughout the Main Line during the country’s Gilded Age. Even newer Bala Cynwyd homes for sale have been designed along the same graceful architectural lines, resulting in a visual harmony that helps highlight the natural beauty of their setting.

Unlike the more rural Main Line hamlets and villages, however, Bala Cynwyd’s proximity to Philadelphia has resulted in a more urban flavored area along City Avenue (US Route 1), its southeastern border with the city. This is where you will find many of the Greater Philadelphia region’s television and radio stations, as well as varied office spaces, shops, restaurants, and educational institutions such as the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Bala Cynwyd is further distinguished by the fact that it is served not just by one, but by two SEPTA stations. These are the Bala Station and the Cynwyd Station, which are serviced by Cynwyd Line Regional Rail.
