Get to Know Radnor
It can be difficult to get your arms around Radnor, a town, a township and a highly regarded public school district. Located in Delaware County, Radnor properties will have a 19087 ZIP code or a 19010 ZIP. Radnor Township is a sought-after Philadelphia suburb where sumptuous residences abound, townhomes and condominiums are plentiful and affordable detached single-family homes are in short supply. If you're house-hunting there, look for properties in Wayne, Bryn Mawr, Villanova, Newtown Square and Radnor itself.
The Radnor Township School District is a major reason behind the area's popularity among home buyers. But even parents who choose to send their children to private schools have many convenient options given Radnor's fairly central location on the Main Line: Private schools to the east and west are convenient to this area.
Radnor's other feature as a place to buy a home is its proximity to major commuter routes and access to SEPTA mass transit via the Radnor train station. With easy access to I-476 (the “Blue Route”), residents can head to Philadelphia by picking up I-76. Or hop on a train to Center City Philadelphia and be there in about 20 minutes at rush hour.
Radnor Township’s motto is “The Best Place to Live, Work and Do Business on the Main Line”, and it is home to some very large employers based at the Radnor Corporate Center and surrounding area. These employers include Main Line Health’s corporate offices; Lincoln Financial, TEK Systems, AirGas regional headquarters, and quite a few financial-and asset-management firms.
For those who enjoy time outside, Radnor has about 400 acres devoted to parks and recreation. Some of the more popular parks include the Radnor Trail, a 2.4-mile path for running, biking, dog walking and even rollerblading. Radnor also has a skate park with new and improved features.
