Surrounded by Creshelm Valley on the Northwest, Wissahickon Gorge on the West, and historic Germantown on the southeast, the Mount Airy neighborhood has a well-earned reputation as a gorgeous area filled with greenery. Mount Airy also boasts a number of multi-use trails and a cobblestone lined business center. The architecture in Mount Airy attests to its historic roots, with a mix of 18th century, Victorian, and 20th century homes still making up much of the neighborhood.

Easily accessible to and from Center City, Mount Airy is a fun, exciting, and thriving neighborhood to live in. The homes in this neighborhood are as varied and vibrant as the families inside them. You can find painted Victorians, brick rowhomes, glass ranchers, and stone twins living together in harmony.

Bright, sunny, and delightful, 522 Burnham Road is a classic Mount Airy gem.
