Powelton Village Contains Lovely Homes

Powelton Village is a residential district in the western portion of Philadelphia.  The luxury homes to be found here mostly are date back to the Victorian Era.  Many are twin homes reflecting the fact that real estate here has long been too valuable to allow for large lots with single homes.  The area has been designated a national historic district that includes part of University City.  North to south, the zone runs from Market St. to Spring Garden St.  East to west, it extends from 32nd St to 40th St.

The name Powelton Village comes from the Powel Family who were Welsh colonialists who owned large amounts of property in the area.

Trolley lines connected this locale to downtown Philadelphia in the late 1800’s.  The real estate here became a prime spot to erect luxury homes for the industrial tycoons who built factories in Philadelphia.

The luster started to fade from the area in the 1920’s.  By the 40’s, the district was largely low income.  The area along Market St. was called the “Bottom” after the gang of toughs that blighted the community.

In the 60’s, the district attracted members of the counter culture.  A tradition of political activism developed which persists to this day.

Many Historic Homes and Buildings Found Here

Powelton has a multitude of buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Such buildings include the following: the Frederick a Poth House, the Powelton House, the Bell Telephone Exchange, and the John Shedwick Development House.

Lancaster Ave. forms the commercial heart of the district.  The stretch between 35th and 37th Sts. Is filled with shops, restaurants, and retail establishments.  Business benefits from the large number of students who reside near by.  They frequent such popular eating places as Village Pizza, Mad Greeks, and Powelton Pizza.  There are also a number of Mexican and Thai restaurants as well as other ethnic cuisine.

Victorian Homes Highly Sought After

Among the most prized forms of real estate to be found here are the Victorian twin houses.  Some of these serve as single family luxury homes.  Others have been subdivided into apartments.  Row houses, apartment buildings, and detached homes can also be found here.

Powelton Village has an abundance of trees many of which are stately specimens that have been in place for a very long time.  There are also gardens maintained by residents of the community.  This makes for a pleasing environment that can appear quite bucolic for being so close to the city center.

Homes values are high as a result.  Many professionals live in the area attracted by the beauty and convenience afforded by easy access to shopping areas and numerous medical and educational institutions.  Drexel University owns property at the southern end and uses it for student housing.  Many row houses are within easy walking distance of the university.  Loss of sight lines led to an ordinance restricting height limitations of new buildings.  Powelton Village is determined to maintain real estate standards that befit luxury homes.
