Roxborough Homes For Sale in Philadelphia

Where Is Roxborough?

West of neighboring East Falls and northwest of Manayunk, Roxborough’s boundaries snake alongside the Wissahickon to the east and north, spanning south to the Manayunk boundary alongside Silverwood Street and the Schuylkill River. Residents adopt the 19128 zip code.

Bars, Restaurants & Dining

In addition to nearby coffee shops in Manayunk like Pilgrim Roasters and Volo. Mel’s Kitchen masters American breakfast platters and a simple cup of joe in diner digs, while Taylor’s Cafe hits the spot for breakfast or brunch – touting a menu of La Colombe coffee, bottled water from Germany, Italy and France, crab cake benedict and a burger bar with standouts like a tofu burger. Coffee and counter-serve breakfast is served at Manhattan Bagel, Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts.

Roman’s is a reliable pizza joint for lunch, with the usual slices in addition to specialties like a spicy “flaming rooster” pizza or Bianca pie with broccoli, spinach and ricotta. Daiva’s Grille whips up diner comfort foods for lunch, like a grilled porkchop, meatloaf, roast turkey, and eggplant parm. The Foodery Roxborough is best known for its selection of more than 1,000 craft brews, but also serves artisan sandwiches like the buffalo chicken “Diablo” and spiced-up parent ‘wich “Dad of Diablo,” with St. Lucifer sauce.

Phu Fha Thai is a decadent takeout dinner option, with large portions of pad thai, curry dishes and can’t-go-wrong pineapple fried rice. Adobe Cafe satisfies with Southwestern staples like ground beef tacos, queso, nachos and, uniquely, a chorizo chowder – alongside margaritas. Hilltown Tavern is the local Irish pub go-to, with a diverse cocktail menu, draft beer list and bottle menu. Dive-y Graham’s Pub is open late for an affordable beer and a burger.

Attractions, Landmarks & Parks

Roxborough is a Philadelphia destination for nature enthusiasts, defined by the Lenape-named Wissahickon Creek.

The creek-associated land known as Wissahickon Valley Park is home to nearly 2,000 acres of explorable land, complete with trails for hiking, horseback riding, fishing and plenty of rocks to climb, bridges to pass over and meadows to inhabit. Notable is the Cave of Kelpius, the mysterious cave notorious for once housing a doomsday cult.

Al Pearlman Sports Complex is built for baseball games; Hillside Recreation Center maintains a basketball court and pool; and Houston Playground, overlooking Fairmount Park, has water sprinklers, slides and paths for walking.

The Roxborough Reservoir is an ideal spot for migratory bird watching, as well as a perfect spot for jogging.

Walnut Lane Golf Course is a municipal golf course well-suited for beginners to the game or a low-cost, Saturday-afternoon Par-3 practice session.

Rittenhouse Town, along the northern end of the Wissahickon park, contains six historic buildings as part of a once-upon-a-time, 17th-century industrial complex consisting of stucco and stone colonial buildings.

School Districts

Students in the 19128 zip code attend the Shawmont School, James Dobson School or Cook-Wissahickon School for elementary and middle grades. For high school, students attend Roxborough High School or, as special admission alternatives, the Walter Biddle Saul High School of Agricultural Sciences or Lankenau Environmental Science Magnet High School.

Also in the neighborhood is public-charter elementary and middle school Green Woods Charter School, on Domino Lane, as well as Immaculate Heart of Mary School, located on East Cathedral Road as a private Catholic school option.

Shopping

Grocery options are in abundance in Roxborough. Two Acme Markets locations bookend the north and south ends of the neighborhood, with a ShopRite at its center and a Target to the north – conveniently situated next to a Fine Wine & Good Spirits store, as well as a Dollar Tree for discount products. T & F Farmers Pride, meanwhile, is a deli that doubles as a specialty grocery store for cheeses, pastas and more. Henry Got Crops operates as a CSA location managed by Weaver’s Way Co-op in nearby Chestnut Hill.

The neighborhood also contains multiple CVS locations for pharmacy needs, a Wawa for convenience shopping and big-box outposts like Kohl’s, Staples and Petco.

For boutique shopping, head south to Manayunk’s Main Street for a variety of women’s apparel and home goods shopping.
