Ok, maybe not Bradley Cooper, but how about his mom? Cooper comes from the tiny borough of Jenkintown, just outside Philadelphia in Montgomery County, and from time to time, the Oscar nominee can be seen at local haunts like the West Avenue Grill. So why not consider looking at homes for sale in Jenkintown?
While Cooper is a nice draw, Jenkintown has plenty of other neighborhood appeals. For starters, it’s a hub for Septa regional rail (three lines stop there on their way into Center City), or if you need to drive, it’s a quick shot downtown. It offers a mix of single-family dwellings, rowhomes and condos, and many of the older homes ooze charm with their original finishings. It’s definitely a walkable community with a quaint commercial district that’s home to the historic movie theater, The Hiway, known for showing artsy, independent films. And the school district is excellent.
Jenkintown is also appealing to residents who like a tightknit community, with the requisite farmer’s market, as well as seasonal festivities and events. And, of course, Bradley Cooper.
