Learn More About Roxborough & View Real Estate Listings for Sale
Roxborough is located adjacent to Manayunk & shares many of the same attributes. Geographically it is much larger than it’s neighbor & has many different styles of houses. There are the traditional 2 & 3 story rows, grand old mansions, new construction, condos & some twin homes built in the 50’s & 60’s with garages at ground level (Realtors call this style Air-Lite). While Manayunk historically catered to the workers of the mills, the mill owners lived in Roxborough & there are many grand old stone homes built during this period of Wissahickon schist. Many of the schools & parks were built through the wealth of the mill owners. Roxborough is bound on it’s upper border by the Wissahickon Creek; a large swath of Fairmount Park perfect for hiking, biking & horseback riding. Roxborough’s commercial district is located on Ridge Avenue.
