Home > Homes for Sale Villanova, PA | Main Line Homes
The Philadelphia area is rich in academic prestige, with its famed “Big 5” group of schools that includes the University of Pennsylvania (member of the Ivy League, founded in 1740), Temple University (founded in 1884), La Salle University (1863) and Saint Joseph’s University (1851).
Then there’s Villanova University (1842), which even in that classy crowd, has found a way to stand out.
That’s probably because, in addition to its status as an elite institution of higher learning and its national profile as a basketball powerhouse, it’s also synonymous with one of the most sophisticated and affluent communities on Philadelphia’s tony Main Line.
In fact, the village of Villanova was built around the university, and to this day, a lot of the culture in the incorporated area — zip code 19085, population roughly 8,900 — revolves around the university community. However, homes for sale in Villanova, PA, are about as far from the classic college apartment as the human mind can imagine.
Villanova doesn’t really do small or understated; the majority of homes here are single-family estates with at least three bedrooms and two bathrooms, with gorgeous, expansive yards where families can escape from everyday life.
Seeking a home for sale in Villanova, PA, means you’ve arrived. You’re realizing your dreams. And with Main Line Homes, you’re as close to those dreams as you’ve ever been before. Give us a call to discuss our exclusive listings today.
While it’s only about a 30-minute drive from all the history and vibrancy of Philadelphia and less than 5 minutes from all the shopping options common to a suburban area, Villanova is really in its own world of tranquility and luxury. The village only claims a few restaurants and bars of its own, and its main thoroughfare is narrow Lancaster Ave.
Homes for sale in Villanova, PA, offer the very definition of “the best of both worlds.”
Hop on a SEPTA regional rail train, and you can visit historic sites in Center City or eat and drink world-class food in Rittenhouse Square. You can see a free concert in Northern Liberties or people-watch in the eclectic South Street district. You can visit the sports complex at Broad St. and Pattison Ave. to attend professional football, basketball, baseball or hockey events with some of the most passionate fans on the planet.
But you don’t have to travel to Philly for some of the finest cultural and recreational opportunities that the area has to offer. Villanova University is a treasure trove for lovers of art, music, theater, and, of course, sports, with a brand new, sparkling basketball facility now standing as a monument to the three-time NCAA champion Wildcats (1985, 2016, 2018).
