Glen Mills is just to the west of Media, but east of Chadds Ford. Its public school students attend Garnet Valley or Rose-Tree Media schools. Similar to Chadds Ford and Kennett Square, while no one really considers this area the Main Line, these communities are certainly Philadelphia suburbs, This town has the advantage of being “off the beaten path” yet very close to some major highways as well as roads like 202 which has lots of shopping, dining and other services along it, including a huge, beautiful Whole Foods. Houses vary from modest and older to new developments showcasing large, luxury homes. It really is a mix and you can find something in just about price/style range.
Glen Mils boasts a country club as well as a large park (Newlin Grist Mill Park) and even has a Costco! You’ll also find some wineries as you head toward Chadds Ford. It’s a good blend of suburb and semi-rural sections. It’s a bit of a commute to center city, but a great choice if airport access or Wilmington are frequent destinations. Don’t miss Terrain at Styers, a nursery as well as a wonderful shopping experience for all things related to entertaining outdoors “in the garden”. Glen Mills has continued to add shopping and dining options and it’s truly a great Philadelphia suburb to call home.
