7 Most Expensive Neighborhoods

BY LEAH CAMPANO, ANTONIA DEPACE, KRISTIN DETTERLINE AND JOANN GRECO | June 7, 2019 | Home & Real Estate

Basic economics teaches us that when supply is low, demand is typically high—which might lend an explanation to the priciest ZIP codes in the Greater Philadelphia region. From the Main Line to the Jersey Shore, and Rittenhouse Square in between, the median home value is upward of $450,000. We break down the seven neighborhoods where ultraluxury knows no bounds.

LONGPORT

The southern tip of Absecon Island offers summer-ready homes for a median value of $712,000. At 2505 Atlantic Ave.—one of Longport’s newest constructions—natural sunlight radiates throughout three stories. $1.9 million, hartmanhometeam.com

GWYNEDD

A quintessential Victorian farmhouse lends to the medley of homes averaging $717,000 here. While a total restoration in 2007 updated 508 Penllyn Pike, all-American charm still emanates from its rustic details. $2.95 million, sivelgroupluxury.com

AVALON

Waterside properties abound at this exclusive Shore point, where the average home values at $1 million. 5499 Dune Drive is no exception, offering endless ocean views from its high dune positioning. $8.7 million, avalonstoneharbor.com

RITTENHOUSE

VILLANOVA
