Queen Village Real Estate

    Queen Village is a perfect alternative to anyone who loves the historic feel of Old City, but also likes the homier atmosphere of a tight-knit South Philadelphia neighborhood.

    With its proximity to the Delaware River Waterfront, its quaint cobble-stoned streets, and its remnants of 18th and 19th century architecture, a walk around Queen Village is a delight in itself. The area is also home to Headhouse Square, with its famed farmers’ market, and to Fabric Row, a quaint strip of textile merchants and boutique shops along South 4th Street.

    Schools fall in the coveted Meredith Catchment, while median home values in the neighborhood are almost triple the average Philadelphia home.
