Location, location, location. That mantra has remained a proven constant over the past four years—even when the real estate market has been, in a word, tumultuous. Alas, you can change almost anything about a house but its location. Lucky for us, the Main Line and its western suburbs have a surplus of prime locales. Each town, however, has its own personality and reputation. “It takes a full day to drive around with a prospective client and explain the county lines, the township divisions and school districts—and how the towns blend into each other,” says Narberth-based realtor John S. Duffy. “With Main Line towns, you can’t generalize because there are so many different sections to them. They all shift and evolve into different areas.”

Here’s a closer look at what 29 of them have to offer.
