Welcome to Chestnut Hill
Perhaps the most quiet neighborhood within the city limits, Chestnut Hill is an upscale historic neighborhood in the northwestern corner of Philadelphia known for its classical stone homes. It is one of the city’s most beautiful, affluent and historic neighborhoods. Germantown Avenue’s cobblestone blocks, where trolleys once ran, feature shopping, antiques and dining of all sorts, and are known for charm and walkability – both downtown and in its bountiful open space. Chestnut Hill was designated one of the top seven urban enclaves in the USA by Forbes.com and it has been selected as a Distinctive Destination by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
