Why people want to live in Chesterbrook PA



Sitting between the PA Turnpike and Route 202 in Chester County Chesterbrook developed about 34 years ago has become one of the "in demand" developments for home buyers moving to Chester County in Pennsylvania. It is in Tredyffrin Township, part of the award winning and highly ranked Tredyffrin Easttown School District, #1 in the nation according to Niche. It has a Wayne address, which for many is desirable. The development includes office buildings, shopping center, a township park and hotel; apartments, town homes, carriage homes, single family homes all in their own sub developments.

Chesterbrook overview

New Construction

The green locations show homes for sale. The shopping center is undergoing a total refurbishment with some land being converted to brand new town homes starting in the mid $500,000's which have sold well in the year since construction began. The center needed some updating and the work has brightened and lifted it although the supermarket which had always been the center of the development has gone.

Wilson Farm Park Map

Open Space

Behind this area the township created a park Wilson Farm Park, built on the land from the Wilson Farm and this is the location for the township July 4th firework displays, it includes soccer fields, baseball fields, tennis courts, a running and walking track, a small pond, play areas, parking, and areas for picnicking and a stage for outdoor concerts. The township uses the park for their recycling days when homeonwers can drop off those items not usally accepted for recylcing.


Chesterbrook walking trails

Chesterbrook has walking trails throughout and these wind through open space and some lead to Valley Forge National Park.

Office and Hotel

Embassy Suites Chesterbrook

The hotel is part of the Embassy Suites a Hilton hotel chain and there are meeting rooms, a restaurant and bar on site. Chesterbrook has been home to many large companies, Shire Pharmeceticals called Chesterbrook home before departing to the Boston area, 1and1 websites is located in Chesterbrook as are many other medical firms and smaller businesses.


Chesterbrook housing

As mentioned, each sub development has its own character, only a few of the town homes offer garages, so these do carry a premium and are mainly one car, with The Ponds and Painters Lane being those which offer two car parking other than the single family homes in Green Hills.

Style of each sub development is varied which adds to the desire for many homeowners. There are homes which would look right at home on Cape Cod and those which look more ready for an Urban development. Chesterbrook caters to owners of all sorts, those who want an apartment with 1 bedroom, those who want a 3 bedroom town home, those who want a carriage home with a garage and those looking for a single family home.

Condo or HOA?

Some of the developments have home owner associations and some are set up as condo associations. There is a difference between the two and you can read about this at Is that the right question? The HOA fee is how much?

Chesterbrook is a very desirable area and those selling or looking for a home need a Chesterbrook Realtor who understands the development and how it is marketed. Often agents unfamiliar with Chesterbrook will use a sub development title, such as "The Ponds" when listing and it will not be found by buyers looking for Chesterbrook homes. We have helped many clients in the Chesterbrook development buy and sell homes. We look forward to meeting with you to find out why you want to make Chesterbrook your home or to help you market your Chesterbrook home for sale. Contact us today.

This is a well thought out presentation on what the Chesterbrook Community has to offer. I especially like the Open Space for people to enjoy and the fact that it has everything needed to live and work locally makes it a successful area to live and has growth in mind for the future in a great location too!

Wishing you all the best Nick & Trudy Vandekar

Patricia Feager, it has been an area that was way ahead of the "Main Street" developments we see today but in the same vein. A location with work opportunities for the residents, plenty of housing of all sorts, open space to enjoy etc.

Hannah Williams, thank you.
