Houses for Sale in Bryn Mawr, PA

Due to the high demand for properties, homebuyers have to move quickly if they want to buy a Bryn Mawr home that is on the market. Those interested in purchasing will undoubtedly fall in love with the local Bryn Mawr homes for sale listings, since Bryn Mawr has a wide range of styles to choose from. Below are a few of our favorite local architecture styles.

Colonials

Colonial houses are built in a traditional style of architecture that dates back to the U.S. Colonial era, which ended in the late 1800’s. Their basic framework has remained an extremely popular influence in residential architecture for over 200 years in the United States. The traditional Colonial style home is rectangular and symmetrical. The front door is centered and is usually crowned with a small pediment or columned portico. There are an equal number of tall windows on each side of the front door, and double-hung sash windows are symmetrically arranged around the house, normally installed in pairs. The front door opens to a formal entryway with a central staircase, with access to large, ground-floor rooms on either side. There is a central fireplace (which was moved to exterior walls in later eras). On the second story, the central staircase leads to upper bedrooms, often four, which branch off from a central hallway, and at least one bathroom.

The layout of Colonial homes creates plenty of space for large families, including finished basements and recreation rooms. Colonials have sloping, pitched gabled roofs with shingles and gutters. The exterior of the home is brick, wood, or vinyl siding.

Although the Colonials period ended in the late 1800s, the late 1800s brought the Colonial Revival and a resurgence in Colonial style architecture. The revival is commonly credited to the Philadelphia Centennial of 1876. The Colonial home style is extremely popular along the Philadelphia Main Line, and there are many stately Colonial style homes in Bryn Mawr, as well as in many other communities of the Philadelphia Main Line, including Merion Station, Narberth, Wynnewood, Ardmore, Gladwyne, Haverford, Villanova, and Wayne.
