Strictly Main Line

Malvern Real Estate Analysis


The borough of Malvern in Chester County, Pennsylvania will forever be known for being the last stop on the historic Main Line, despite the fact that it is far from the last station along today’s Paoli/Thorndale Line. As befits its role as the westernmost enclave in a string of communities renowned for their history, scenic setting, and high quality of life, Malvern is a charmer of a place.

A cross between a small town and a village, the borough extends across an area that’s less than one and half square miles in size and is home to just over 3,100 people. It is important to note, however, that the borough itself actually comprises just a portion of the region Main Liners know as Malvern, which actually includes more rural areas home to many sprawling estates.

Originally a part of the Welsh Tract, Malvern was first settled in the late 1600s and gets its name from the beautiful Malvern Hills in England’s West Midlands region near its border with Wales. Once a primarily agricultural area, Malvern has since evolved into a semi-rural suburban community that’s mainly residential but still contains thriving pockets of commercial activity. Located just over half an hour’s drive from Center City Philadelphia and less than ten miles north of West Chester, the seat of Chester County, Malvern is easily accessible but it has also successfully managed to maintain its peaceful atmosphere of country seclusion over the years.

The heart of the community is its historic downtown which is anchored by King Street. Like most of its neighbors up and down the Main Line, Malvern developed faster after the Philadelphia Railroad built a station here ‘ as such, the King Street district, its oldest commercial area, is dominated by brick and stone buildings built in the style of the Victorian architecture of the age.

Populated by an assortment of independently-owned shops and restaurants, Malvern’s Victorian-era downtown is immensely walkable and provides residents and visitors with an enchanting shopping and dining experience. Its wealth of antique stores makes it a particularly popular spot among Main Liners in search of one-of-a-kind pieces.

It’s not just its downtown that’s been attracting interest in recent years, however. Malvern has also seen a great deal of revitalization in the past few decades and is well-known for being the home of the 700-acre Great Valley Corporate Center, a vibrant business park that’s partially located in nearby East Whiteland.
