Devon Real Estate Analysis

devon-1

Like the famously scenic English county from which it gets its name, the Main Line community of Devon has retained its rural feel despite numerous modernizations over the years. Located in both Tredyffrin and Easttown Townships in easternmost Chester County, Devon was developed in the 19th century to be a town of large and handsome country residences and it has for the most part remained true to its developers vision to this day.

Once the site of expansive farms that had been continuously cultivated since the 1680s, Devon was transformed into the community that it is today when the Pennsylvania Railroad started laying down tracks westward from Philadelphia in the late 1800s. Anticipating the demand for real estate that would ensue after the railroad finished building, two prominent Philadelphia merchants, Lemuel Coffin and Joseph B. Altemus, bought up some of the farms in the vicinity, built roads, parceled out lots and constructed the Devon Inn to attract the city’s aristocratic set.

It was a plan that proved immensely successful from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th, leading Philadelphia families snapped up lots and built their country retreats in Devon, quite a few of which still stand today. The Devon Station, which is now served by Paoli/Thorndale Line Regional Rail, has kept this relatively secluded community connected to Philadelphia and the rest of the Main Line since those early years.

These days, Devon, PA homes are year-round residences as the community is well-known for providing an exceptional quality of life. Featuring serene and private neighborhoods, an abundance of parks, and highly rated public and private schools, Devon is very family-oriented and is an excellent place to raise children. Many of those who grow up here, in fact, can’t wait to move back when it’s time for them to raise their own families.

Devon isn’t just a quiet, primarily residential community that most everyone would love to call home.  It’s also quite famous for The Devon Horse Show and Country Fair, which has been held on the Devon Horse Show Grounds since 1896. It’s one of the international equestrian community’s most anticipated annual events. The United States’ largest and oldest outdoor multi-breed competition, it is a Main Line classic and one of the most prestigious equestrian events in the world.
