Learn More About Chestnut Hill & View Real Estate Listings for Sale

Chestnut Hill is the premiere neighborhood of Northwest Philadelphia.  This neighborhood boasts some seriously impressive real estate & has the highest median home value outside of Center City.  It is historic, charming, pastoral & oh so beautiful.  It was the original gateway between the farmlands & Center City.  A little later it became a place where wealthy Philadelphian’s built their summer homes due to it’s higher elevation it tended to stay a little cooler.  Today, Chestnut Hill is as charming as ever & feels a bit like a throwback to days past.  Germantown Ave., the commercial district, has retained it’s adorable cobblestone streets.  The shops are tidy, well kept & run by local merchants.  The homes run the gamut from 11,000 square foot estate homes on huge lots to sweet twins surrounding the commercial corridor.  This neighborhood is probably your best bet for a single family home with suburban living feel if you can stomach the price tag.  Most homes are stone & brick & have either front yards or side yards & there are many gardens.  Condos & new construction are few & far between.

What Are the Boundaries?

Restaurants, Bars & Nightlife

Chestnut Hill isn’t known for it’s raging nightlife.  It’s a quieter section of Philadelphia, however, there are many great places to grab a drink, have dinner or brunch.  Mica is a great place for a fancy meal, Osaka, Heirloom Fine American Cookery, Roller’s, Tavern on the Hill, Campbell’s Place & Cake (in Robertson’s Greenhouse) just to name a few.

Grocery Shopping

Chestnut Hill & Mount Airy are home to the Weaver’s Way Coop.  Top of the Hill has great seafood, meat & local produce.  Penzey’s is my favorite place to shop for spices.  You are also close to a few big super markets.

Farmer’s Market

Chestnut Hill’s Farmer’s Market behind the Chestnut Hill Hotel has some great spots & is open on Thursday’s & Friday’s yet these hours could change as it is undergoing a renovation.  The outdoor farmer’s market sets up year round on Saturday mornings on Winston between Germantown & Mermaid.  It is one of the best in the city in my opinion.

Shopping

There are quite a few boutiques & galleries located along Germantown Ave.  Robertson’s Florist (photo above), Hipster Home, Mango, Ten Thousand Villages, Brewer’s Outlet, Hideaway Music for your vinyl needs & HOBNOB home just to name a few.  Chestnut Hill is a must do day trip!  There is so much to do!

Green Space

Chestnut Hill is surrounded by Fairmount Park!  This is a great place to run, walk, hike, bike or horseback ride.  There is a stable on Northwestern Ave. that has been in continuous use since 1929. Pastorious Park has a dog park for all you pooch owners.

Parking & Public Transportation

Parking is not too difficult in this neighborhood because the housing is less dense.  Parking close to the commercial district is usually metered or has a time limit.  There used to be a trolley that ran down Germantown.  I think it would be fabulous if they would bring that back.  There are two train lines; Chestnut Hill East & West.  There are also buses that serve the neighborhood.  Check out Septa’s website for more information.

Enjoy gorgeous views of the woods from the deck, the patio, and many windows of this stunning, well-built, architect-designed home, constructed of stucco over masonry (not wood frame). This special property incorporates a 2-story stone carriage house that once housed the heating system for the greenhouses of the historic Druim Moir estate. The newer section of the home, built in 1988, was designed to reflect the Cotswold style of many early-20th Century Chestnut Hill homes, successfully blending modern and traditional style, with abundant light, beautiful oak floors, and lovely mill work. Notable features include a 2-story entrance hall, step-down living room with fireplace, first-floor family room with fireplace, updated eat-in-kitchen, spacious master suite with 2 closets and fabulous marble bath, and a wonderful finished, walk-out basement with game, media & craft rooms. A bonus in-law suite has a 2-story great room with fireplace & cathedral ceiling, bedroom, kitchen, full bath and upper level loft, and is accessible from the second floor of the main house or via back stairs, and also has its own outside entrance. Druim Moir was the home of Henry Houston, the visionary entrepreneur who developed Chestnut Hill in the 1880s. When threatened with demolition and dense development in the 1970s, Houston's descendants created a wonderful alternative: a carefully planned community that includes the original mansion, another smaller Victorian home, 15 new homes, and 10 acres of preserved open space on 20 beautifully landscaped acres bordering Fairmount Park.
