Spotlight on Phoenixville

Located in beautiful Chester County, Phoenixville has undergone a remarkable renaissance during the last fifteen years. A former steel town, it is now known for its lively downtown, with an impressive assortment of restaurants, breweries, wineries, pubs, and boutiques. It is also home to the Phoenixville Farmer’s Market, Colonial Theatre, and Phoenixville Public Library.

Incorporated in 1849, historic Phoenixville Borough is surrounded by several scenic suburban townships: Schuylkill Township, East Pikeland Township, and Upper Providence Township. All are in the Phoenixville School District, except Upper Providence Township, which is in the Spring-Ford School District.

Housing in the Phoenixville area is diverse, ranging from the very old to brand new. During the last three months, the average sold price for single-family homes in Phoenixville Borough and its three surrounding townships was $433,358. But for newer single-family homes up to 25 years old, it was a much higher $592,538. The average sold price of townhouses and rowhouses during the last three months was $288,343, but among newer townhouses up to 25 years old, the average was $346,211 (statistics from BrightMLS).

Phoenixville residents can visit the area’s many parks and are close to Valley Forge National Park, with 3,500 acres and more than 30 miles of trails. Cyclists and runners will love the Schuylkill River Trail, a well-maintained route connecting to other local trails.

Routes 113, 23, and 29 run through Phoenixville, and several major roads are close by: Route 422, Route 202, the Schuylkill Expressway, and the PA Turnpike. Nearby employment options include companies in King of Prussia and Oaks, Collegeville pharmaceuticals, and businesses in the Great Valley Corporate Center in Malvern.
