Bala Cynwyd Real Estate
Bala Cynwyd real estate encompasses the area just outside of Philadelphia in Montgomery County, a diverse community with a population of approximately 9,416 people. Originally, Bala and Cynwyd were two separate Welsh villages, among the oldest settlements on the Main Line. However, since the U.S. Post Office established a single post office for both, the two are now routinely referred to as one town. Bala Cynwyd is home to Montgomery County’s first public school; for a time after World War II, it was also the location of the National Football League headquarters. Bala Cynwyd is now home to several of the area’s well-known TV and radio stations, including 6ABC and NBC10.
Remnants of Bala Cynwyd’s early history remain, promoted by the Lower Merion Historical Society. Cynwyd Station serves as the head of the Cynwyd Heritage Trail, a hiking and biking trail that continues across the Schuylkill River railroad bridge and up the Schuylkill Valley, and is the only one of the three 1884 train stations still standing. The Neighborhood Club of Bala Cynwyd, the local civic association founded in 1906, is the oldest on the Main Line. Other notable sites of historic interest in Bala Cynwyd include the West Laurel Hill Cemetery and a historic 1926 theater, now known as the Bala Theatre.
1950 is the reported Median Year Built for most homes in Bala Cynwyd. Many of the stately stone houses found in the area are constructed of the versatile Pennsylvania field stone that gives the entire Main Line area its unique character, which is why many of the houses on offer in Wayne, PA, have become so popular. Realtors in Main Line report that Bala Cynwyd real estate offerings include condos and townhouses in addition to single family homes.
Parents searching for Main Line homes for sale may be interested to learn that Bala Cynwyd is considered more family-centric than the surrounding county, with an above-average percentage of households (39.67%) containing married families with children (the county average is 36.66%). The median household income in Bala Cynwyd is an estimated $103,917. Easy access to public transportation makes Bala Cynwyd a fairly densely populated and rather ethnically diverse area.
