Bryn Mawr Real Estate

About Bryn Mawr

The affluent community of Bryn Mawr is located near the middle of Philadelphia's prestigious Main Line. The United States Census Bureau lists the census designated place of Bryn Mawr entirely in Lower Merion Township in Montgomery County. However Bryn Mawr is frequently used as a geographic term to include the entire zip code of 19010 which includes communities such as Rosemont, Garrett Hill, and other places in Radnor Township in Delaware County, and even a few in Haverford Township. So in many regards, the entire zip code of 19010 is considered to be Bryn Mawr, especially since Main Line communities such as Rosemont — despite having its own train stop -- are quite small.

Originally named Humphreysville, the town was renamed by William H. Wilson a railroad agent of the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1869 after he acquired all 283 acres that comprise Bryn Mawr on behalf of the Railroad.

Being close to the middle of the Main Line makes Bryn Mawr a coveted locale. It is still easily commutable to Philadelphia by train or car, while sharing characteristics of Main Line towns just beyond such as Villanova and Wayne, being large estates and less congestion. Very high property values and a high median income make Bryn Mawr an extremely desirable place to live. Pronounced "brin-mow-r," it means big hill in Welsh, drawing its name from an estate near Dolgellau, located in North Wales.

Main Line Schools

Top-Notch Education

One of the driving forces of real estate prices and a big part of desirability is an area's school system. Whether you are looking for a great school for your children, or want a good school system for resale value, the Main Line fulfills these criteria. With high test scores, low teacher to student ratios, and a lot of tax money going into the system, you cannot go wrong with any school district on the Main Line.
