Meet the Main Line: Welcome to Philadelphia Main Line Homes

If you’re looking for homes for sale in Gladwyne, PA, or anywhere else on the Philadelphia Main Line, let Janis Peterson at Main Line Homes help get you into the home of your dreams at a low price you’ll love. The Main Line is a great place to live, no matter what community you choose. 

A Brief History of the Main Line

Running northwest from Center City Philadelphia, the Main Line lies along what used to be the Main Line of the Pennsylvania Railroad. As way stations were constructed along the railroad, the social elite of Philadelphia began to view the area as a place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, and it became common practice, for those who could afford it, to have a second home on the Main Line.  As suburbanization boomed in the 20th century, so did the Main Line. It grew into the most fashionable and wealthy region of the Philadelphia metropolitan area, and today is home to some of the most affluent communities in America. 

Main Line Transportation- AMTRAK & SEPTA 

Owning a home along Philadelphia’s prestigious Main Line represents far more than merely a status symbol. It’s also convenient if you work in Philadelphia or anywhere along the path from Philadelphia to Harrisburg, because you have access to this Amtrak-owned rail line. This includes SEPTA's Paoli/Thorndale Line service, also known as R5. AMTRAK & SEPTA provide fast, affordable public transportation which helps mitigate the stressors and pressures of commuting for the residents of the Main Line. 

Education Along the Main Line

The Main Line is also the perfect place to raise children, as you’ll have an excellent selection of schools within your radius, whether your child is at the age of primary, secondary, or university education. Home to some of the state’s most elite public and private schools, the Main Line is known to have a rich history in academic excellence.
