Welcome to Lower Gwynedd
Peaceful and private community with beautiful high-end homes.
Lower Gwynedd is a peaceful community composed of the private villages of Gwynedd, Gwynedd Valley, Penllyn, and Spring House. Lower Gwynedd Township was founded by Welsh Quakers in 1698, making it one of the oldest townships in Montgomery County. U.S. Route 202, I-476, and the Gwynedd Valley SEPTA station provide convenient access to Philadelphia.
Lower Gwynedd features beautiful high-end homes designed by master architects. The community’s most spectacular properties include grand acreage estates with attention lavished on every detail inside and outside the home. Many of these properties combine classic European-inspired architecture with cutting-edge smart home technology. Housing options also include contemporary developments of gorgeous townhouses and carriage homes.
Lower Gwynedd’s serene setting and stunning homes have made this community one of the most sought-after addresses in Montgomery County. Lower Gwynedd has a relaxed and quiet atmosphere along with a fine choice of local amenities. The community offers great schools within the Wissahickon School District. There are also a number of outstanding choices for private schooling.
Lower Gwynedd’s beautiful homes are located close to an eclectic array of shopping and dining destinations. The Spring House Village shopping center features numerous stores and restaurants, including the artisanal BYOB Italian-Mediterranean eatery Arpeggio. Popular menu choices at Arpeggio
include a wide choice of traditional Mediterranean entrees and small plates, wood-oven pizzas, delicious fresh seafood, hearty salads, and hummus platters.
Along Dekalb Pike at Lower Gwynedd’s northwestern edge, the Center Square Shopping Center is home to the upscale grocery store McCaffrey’s
and big-box retailers such as HomeGoods and Kohl’s. Many other businesses and eateries are clustered close to the Center Square Shopping Center, including the health-focused Nekter Juice Bar
. Nekter’s invigorating menu items include cold-pressed juice cleanses, smoothies, and tasty acai bowls.
Lower Gwynedd is also home to some of the most historic taverns in Pennsylvania. First established in 1719, The Spring House Tavern
pairs elevated pub grub and signature crab cakes with an extensive choice of wines, cocktails, and craft beers. The William Penn Inn
narrowly beats The Spring House Tavern to the title of Pennsylvania’s oldest continuously operated country inn. This circa-1714 establishment retains its centuries-long reputation for outstanding fine dining with a menu of mouthwatering prime rib, steaks, fresh seafood, and Italian entrees. The William Penn Inn’s sublime meals are served in three beautifully appointed dining rooms exuding authentic old-world sophistication.
Cedarbrook Country Club
is a family-focused institution with over a century of history at the heart of life in Lower Gwynedd.
