"Adorable neighborhood"

Woodland Terrace is a cozy neighborhood located in West Philadelphia. It’s situated between Baltimore Pike, Woodland Avenue, 40th Street and 41st Street. As of 1972, the neighborhood has been considered a historic district of the city.
One of the unique characteristics about this neighborhood is the huge “Italianate twin” mansions that are located here. Most of the other houses used to be large family estates and have since been divided into multiple apartment units.
Woodland Terrance is an extremely well-kept neighborhood and residents take great pride in maintaining their yards and gardens.
Some of the close features of the area include the historic Woodlands Cemetery in which Civil War hero John Joseph Abercrombie is buried and Clark Park, which has great hills to sled down during the wintertime.
Woodland Terrance has high housing values since the area is one of the safer neighborhoods located in West Philadelphia. It is also perfect for students because it is in close proximity with University of Pennsylvania.
If you want to move to a charming little area with a homey feel, Woodland Terrace is perfect for you. Parking is not really an issue because the neighborhood is extremely small and not a lot of people lvie here.

"Tiny but cute"

Woodland Terrace is smaller neighborhood in West Philadelphia that spans from Baltimore Pike to Woodland Ave and 40th and 41st. It is an extremely pretty neighborhood with tree-lined streets and large “Italianate twin” mansions.

Most of the homes in this area are owned or divided into apartments and rented. They are also in decent condition with maintained yards and floral gardens. The property value of Woodland Terrace is high because of its location and condition.
Woodland Terrace is located in what is known as the “West Philadelphia Streetcar Suburb Historic District” because this represents the transformation of farmland to urban residential development. Trolleys are still accessible from Woodland Terrace to Center City. And there is off street parking for automobiles.

The Woodlands Cemetery is also within each of this neighborhood. In addition to many notable burials like Civil War general John Joseph Abercrombie and artist Rembrandt Peale the cemetery also has a community garden and an apiary.
Clark Park, the shops on Baltimore Avenue and many other great locations in West Philadelphia are within bike or walking distance of Woodland Terrace. In addition it's near U Penn, Penn Hospital and CHOP which is great for students or faculty of those locations.
Pros
  • Great location
  • trees
