Germantown Philadelphia Condominiums

Although you wouldn’t guess from its name, Germantown was originally a Dutch settlement about six miles northwest of downtown Philadelphia. The area was annexed by the city of Philadelphia in 1854 by the Act of Consolidation, and is today one of Philadelphia’s most quaint and charming neighborhoods.

Germantown borders the upscale neighborhood of Chestnut Hill and the city neighborhood of East Falls. Prior to the Act of Consolidation, Chestnut Hill and Germantown were semi-rural farming communities and popular summer playgrounds for Philadelphia’s affluent crowd. Germantown has many well-preserved colonial-era homes, some of which were used to garrison British soldiers during the Revolutionary War.

Today, many of the historic buildings dating from the 19th century have been converted into spectacular Germantown condos, including spectacular turreted Victorian homes. Germantown condos and single-family homes are immensely popular among families and couples, as well as with anyone who seeks the quiet luxury of a suburban lifestyle with the convenience and connectedness of urban living. Philadelphia’s public transportation systems serve Germantown and the surrounding areas, making Commuting in Philly an easy task.
