Chestnut Hill is a perfect place for those who want a more suburban living environment within the Philadelphia city limits. The area is just 20 minutes from Center City Philadelphia. Bordered on the north by Fairmount Park, the largest urban park in the U.S., Chestnut Hill is known for its stone manor homes, Tudor estate homes, 3-story colonials and the charming shopping and downtown district that has a little something for everyone. In fact, in 2012, Chestnut Hill's Germantown Ave. was deemed to offer the "Best Main Street Shopping" in Philadelphia magazine's "Best of Philly" awards.

Apart from its unique shops, designer stores and stone houses for sale in Wyndmoor, Mt Airy and Chestnut Hill, each section has a wide variety of eating establishments and things to see and do. Along its streets you’ll find bakeries, cafes, markets, candy shops and ice cream parlors. On a lazy day you might choose to stroll through Pastorius Park or see a play at The Stage Crafters. Chestnut Hill is also home to the Morris Arboretum, the official arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania. The arboretum features some of the city’s oldest, rarest and largest trees as well as 13,000 labeled plants from all over the world.

Chestnut Hill Philadelphia Homes Make a Statement

When many people think of real estate Northwest Philadelphia and Chestnut Hill, impressive stone estate homes built by some of Philadelphia’s wealthiest families are often top of mind. These Colonial-, Normandy- and Tudor-style homes have an almost fairytale quality to them and harken to a time in the early 20th century when owners of such homes had live-in staff and caretakers. Many back up to Fairmount Park, and while few people have live-in housekeepers and property managers, there are a lot of exquisitely maintained properties in Chestnut Hill. Expect to pay at least $1,000,000 for one of these larger homes. Of course, Chestnut Hill has more modest digs, including small colonials and twins, but average prices tend to be some of the highest in the city limits.  

Many residents commute to jobs in Center City Philadelphia and the Fort Washington/King of Prussia/Conshohocken areas, though rush-hour traffic is not for the fainthearted. SEPTA provides mass transit buses and trains throughout the day.
