St. Davids Real Estate
About St. Davids
The beautiful town of St. Davids (Davids is not spelled with an apostrophe) is an unincorporated community on Philadelphia's famous Main Line, a collection of affluent suburbs located along Septa's R5 line.
Located entirely in Radnor Township in Delaware County, St. Davids residents share a zip code with Wayne. While St. Davids does have its own train stop along the R5, it is one of the smaller communities and in many ways, almost a part of the Radnor section of Wayne. St. Davids is much like the Main Line town of Rosemont, where it has its own train stop, but is a very small town and shares its zip code with a larger area (in Rosemont's case Bryn Mawr) and most of the same physical characteristics, so by its proximity is sometimes referred to as the other area geographically (in St. Davids case, Wayne).
Located approximately 15 miles from Philadelphia, St. Davids is still an easy commute to Center City via car or train, but is located on the second half of the Main Line where it is perhaps less congested and has more of a country estate feel. St Davids is growing at a rapid pace, and that combined with excellent schools, great shopping and dining, pricey but stable housing and prime location, make St Davids an ideal place to live and invest in.
The town grew around the historic St. Davids Church, from which it also received its name. It was the first Episcopal Church constructed in the United States, and was built by Welsh settlers in 1715. General Anthony Wayne, whom the neighboring town of Wayne was name after, was buried in St. Davids Churchyard. St. Davids is home to Eastern University with its scenic 92 acre campus, and its residents also get to enjoy the wonderful Radnor Trail, which runs through Villanova, St. Davids and Wayne.
This attractive contemporary home is for sale in north Villanova (Lower Merion Township) on a level one-acre lot. In the heart of the Main Line, this home is near the estate section of Villanova. Houses on the street have sold for over a million dollars (house next door sold for 1.4 million). The lot itself is worth the asking price. This is a fabulous opportunity to get into the prestigious Main Line, in a multi-million dollar neighborhood with blue ribbon schools, for a reasonable price. House is close to numerous local Septa stops (a 19 minute ride to center city), the 476, the 76, the fabulous King of Prussia shopping center and Villanova University.» More Information...
