“A Desirable Home Place, Suburban Living at Its Best. 10 minutes, 5 miles, 10 cents from Broad Street Station.”

Overbrook Farms, 1893
We are the nation’s first planned “suburb deluxe”. Built between 1892 and 1929 by famed developers Wendell & Smith, Overbrook Farms still features today the latest in green and healthy suburban living, all within a quick ride to Center City Philadelphia on the storied Main Line commuter rail.
Philadelphia’s continued residential boom, coupled with our proximity to major highways, 30th Street Station, the amenities of the Western Suburbs, and lushness of Morris Park continues to attract a diversity of residents, representing all walks of life.
