Berwyn Real Estate Analysis

berwyn-1

Seen from up high, the community of Berwyn along the Main Line is a virtually uninterrupted sweep of green. Situated in Chester County’s Tredyffrin and Easttown Townships, Berwyn has an abundant mature tree cover and more than enough open spaces to satisfy even the most ardent nature lovers. It’s no surprise, then, why Berwyn real estate often appeals to homebuyers wanting to live in a place that seems to be the very exemplar of William Penn’s ideal of a “greene countrie towne”.

Named after the verdant Berwyn Hills that overlook the valley of the River Dee in northern Wales, Berwyn lies on a bit of a rise, which prevented early Welsh settlers from farming extensively in the region during the 17th century. The area’s growth was haphazard at best until the coming of the Pennsylvania Railroad in the late 19th century and the construction of a rail station.

After Berwyn Station was built, it didn’t take long for Philadelphia’s elite to discover the many charms of scenic, secluded Berwyn. One of the most notable of these was none other than A. J. Cassatt, brother of famous painter Mary Cassatt, who served as the president of the Pennsylvania Railroad until his death in 1906. Cassatt purchased several hundred acres of land in the area and established Chesterbrook Farm, famous in its day for breeding award-winning thoroughbreds. His brother, J. Gardner Cassatt, followed suit by setting up his own estate in the area. Dubbed Kelso Farm, its centerpiece was a French Renaissance-style mansion often referred to as the Cassatt Mansion. This grand 30-room estate still stands today and it has been home to the Upper Main Line YMCA since the 1960s.

Berwyn’s history has seen it slowly evolving from mostly open rural land to country retreat to a village-like suburban community that blends the beauty and serenity of its green, leafy countryside with a rich sense of history and a touch of urban sophistication. Today, it is justly famous for its high-ranking schools, dynamic collection of shops and restaurants along Route 30, and for being the home of the Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens. The Arboretum is renowned for its different varieties of azaleas and rhododendrons.
