Gladwyne, PA (Montgomery County)
An extremely affluent hub for high-income professionals, Gladwyne can be thought of as "the crown jewel” of the Main Line. In fact, Bloomberg BusinessWeek magazine named Gladwyne the seventh richest zip code in the entire country in 2011. A significant portion of homes in the community can be thought of as "estates,” as they are accompanied by large parcels of land with 17 acres or more. The reason for the sprawling lots is because the town has refused to divide land into the suburban developments more typical of other Main Line communities. The Lower Merion Conservancy plays a large hand in continuing to preserve heritage-rich buildings and areas; its main office is located in Rolling Hill Park. Gladwyne provides entertainment for its well-to-do residents with the esteemed Philadelphia Country Club, as well as the historical Merion Cricket Club and The Courts private tennis club. Local residents also enjoy soaking in the historical landmark English Tudor manors and authentic colonial homes. The Delaware Market house is a local favorite, offering specialty groceries, prepared foods and gourmet gift baskets. Similarly, the Old Guard House is an inn built in 1790 that offers fine dining and hosts private parties. Families enjoy life in Gladwyne thanks to the many community events and the high-quality Lower Merion School district schools nearby. There are also countless private schools offering some of the finest education opportunities in the region.
