Welcome to Fairmount
Fairmount is a mix of 3-story and 2-story townhomes along with much larger houses that were converted into condo units. The neighborhood has a strong community bond from long time residents and ones just now calling it their home. Close proximity to highways and easy public transportation back into Center City make this area perfect for retirees and professionals alike.
The area known as Fairmount was named as such because of Fairmount Hill where the world famous Philadelphia Museum of Art is located. Fairmount Ave, originally known as Hickory Lane, runs from the base of the hill and is the main street that runs through the neighborhood. Along Fairmount Ave you’ll find many restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and attractions that make this neighborhood so desirable amongst young and old alike. Scenic walking and biking paths are close by along Kelly Drive where you can also take in the sights of Boathouse Row and the Schuylkill River.
