Relocating to the Philadelphia Area: Paoli
So you’re relocating to the Main Line but don’t know much about Paoli? The Main Line is appealing to lots of people who move to this area because the schools are highly rated and most towns are commutable into center city. Access to the train makes even the western Main Line towns, like Paoli, a possible choice for people working in Philadelphia. Additionally, the charm of the architecture and established neighborhoods attract many transplants. Depending on your lifestyle as well as what style of style you like, how much property you want, the sort of neighborhood you prefer and what your budget is, the Main Line is likely to offer some good choices.

As far as size, Paoli is relatively compact. It takes up only two square miles. Some office parks and commercial buildings as well as Paoli Hospital, which take up a good portion of that land. There are, of course, residential properties as well and they include condos, townhouses and single family homes. As far as architecture goes, there are some contemporary homes and some more traditional ones as well, and colonials as well as split level homes and a few ranches occupy the landscape.
Paoli: What it’s like to live here
One of the major benefits of living in Paoli is the train that travels directly to New York. As a result, many transplants who still work in New York choose to live in Paoli. They reduce their cost of living tremendously and enjoy good schools and a suburban lifestyle with a commute that is often about the same it was before they relocated. In addition to the well-respected Paoli Hospital, the town also offers the Philadelphia Curling Club, for everyone who watches it during the Olympics and wants to give it a try. Paoli also provides an opportunity for a history lesson; the Revolutionary War’s Paoli Massacre is remembered and interpreted each year at the Paoli Battlefield Heritage Day.
Not far from this Revolutionary War battlefield, you can find the other end of the spectrum: brand new construction (2018-19), in the form of Chapel Hill, a 55-unit luxury development of mostly three bedroom homes. There are also new townhouses, like Village Square and Paoli Walk that are conveniently located right off of route 30. If you are looking for more of a cottage feel, you’ll find small, older homes in Paoli Gardens and Paoli Manor. Among the most popular family neighborhoods are Valley Green, which is a quiet neighborhood populated by colonials and split levels and Friendship Hills which offers splits and ranches. If you prefer a contemporary style, the neighborhoods of Pheasant Run or Lexton Woods might have what you’re looking for.
