The Haverford Way of Life 

Haverford township is a community of just under 50,000 people located a convenient 3 miles northwest of Philadelphia center. It is known for its relaxed atmosphere, Haverford College and collections, the beautiful Haverford Arboretum, and its spectacular, picturesque surroundings. From well-maintained walking trails that lead users through lush forests, to babbling creeks and the towering Penn Treaty Elm at Haverford College. Haverford is filled with natural wonders that are waiting to be explored.

 

Haverford is also a family-focused community. 48 percent of residents are married and 45 percent of local properties are family households. Thus, newcomers to the area will notice an abundance of family-friendly services and amenities, as summarized below.

The History of Haverford 

Long before Haverford real estate became as hot as it is today, the area belonged to Willam Penn and was completely unsettled. It wasn’t developed until 1681 when a group of Welsh Quakers approached Penn to purchase land on which they could conduct their own business. These Quakers began establishing their own market economy, with early businesses including farms, gristmills, and blacksmith shops.

 

In 1880 the Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) constructed a station in Haverford. The project was designed and built by Wilson Brothers & Company, a well-known engineering firm at the time. The company went on to develop many of Pennsylvania’s most recognized architectural structures, including bridges and commercial buildings. The addition of the railroad station in Haverford played an integral role in the area’s growth and economic advancement. 

Local Amenities 

Those interested in homes for sale in Haverford, PA are often dazzled by the diverse range of services and facilities the area has to offer.

Below are a few popular favourites:

 

  1. The Haverford School

    The Haverford School has been named the top boys' school in Pennsylvania by Niche and has received Top 10 honors under the "Best Private K-12 Schools in Pennsylvania” category. It is also one of the most prestigious schools in the area with regards to athletic programming, ranking among the top 20 percent of private high schools in Pennsylvania in terms of comprehensive sports offerings. Students can participate in soccer, water polo, football, golf, swimming, ice hockey, and baseball, among other team sports.

  2. The Community Recreation & Environmental Centre (CREC)

    This facility is easily one of the top benefits associated with owning a piece of Haverford, PA real estate. It features a well-equipped fitness room, two full-size basketball courts, a walking track, a kitchen, and an environmental classroom. It is also home to Haverford’s Little Explorers program and several group fitness classes.

  3. The Haverford College

    If you’re the parent of a teenager, one of the many Haverford homes located just minutes away from this leading liberal arts college will likely appeal to you. This highly-acclaimed educational institution has produced some of the greatest academic achievers in American history, including George P. Smith who won the 2018 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, and Joseph H. Taylor, Jr, who was awarded the 1993 Nobel Prize in Physics.

Home Styles 

Part of what makes house-searching in this area so exciting is the wide range of Haverford homes for sale. Whether you are looking for a specific architectural style, or have your heart set on a certain feature (cathedral ceilings, a master ensuite with a spa-quality jacuzzi tub, or a heated pool are just a few examples)— there’s a property to suit your preferences.

Below are a few of the most in-demand architectural styles homebuyers can expect to find in Haverford:

 

  1. Historic Colonials

    Colonials are undeniably the hottest commodity on the Haverford real estate market. If you’ve been looking for vintage homes for sale, Haverford, PA will likely be your own personal paradise. Listings frequently feature traditional brick fireplaces, hallmark panel doors, and classic foyers with Georgian-style staircases— characteristics that simply aren’t constructed with the same care and attention to detail in today’s world.

  2. Regal Manors

    These are the cream of the crop when it comes to houses for sale in Haverford, PA. In fact, it’s almost an injustice to refer to these listings as “houses”. They’re full-fledged estates. And of course, they are priced accordingly. But if you are looking for luxury living, you will not be disappointed. Wine cellars, gourmet kitchens, elaborate mouldings and millwork, home theatres, and billiard rooms are just a few of the lavish perks that come with purchasing one of these palatial properties.

  3. Charming Craftsman-Style Homes

    Craftsman homes are known for their unassuming, functional designs and hospitable, artisanal details. From front porch swings to reading nooks and double-hanging windows— these houses truly feel like home. For this reason, they are adored by parents looking for an idyllic location to raise their children, or artsy, creative types who are drawn to the idea of making a space their own. Plus, these homes are often accompanied by bountiful backyards where kids can play and families can gather for summer BBQs.
