After examining the fringes of the country’s biggest cities, real estate firm Engel & Völkers has listed the most affluent suburbs, with Bryn Mawr coming out on top for the Philadelphia region, writes Kristin Tablang for Forbes.

Bryn Mawr is well known for its distinguished schools, high-end boutiques, and fine-dining restaurants. It has also been home to many famous names, including Katharine Hepburn, who attended Bryan Mawr College, and former President Woodrow Wilson, who taught there.

With a population of 3,779, the area’s median home sales price is $760,292. However, the most expensive home currently on the market is in a much higher bracket. A 6,500-square-foot haven nestled on 5.24 acres of land is on the block for $4.25 million.

The house itself is stunning, from the weathervane-topped turret and pristine Ludowici tile roof, to the gorgeous curved wall of the great room. Inside there are Mahogany doors, 19th-century wood floors, and Tudor-arched windows that have been lovingly preserved through the stewardship of its present owners.

The fabulous property is completed with its gorgeous grounds, including three terraced garden areas adorned with century-old trees and a wisteria-covered walkway to the tennis court.
