Home Sweet Hometown: Malvern

Just 25 miles west of Philadelphia, is a small town in Chester County called Malvern. Here, you’ll stumble upon beautiful homes, tree-lined streets and a small-town feeling that’s tough to replicate. With Malvern just a short (express) train ride from two city centers—Philadelphia and New York City—you have easy access to the bustling metropolis, when you crave it, and the quiet and calm respite when you don’t. Here are a few of our favorite Malvern communities, all with home exteriors clad in James Hardie® siding and trim.

From your landscape choices, to home siding styles, to the fabric on your porch swing cushion—adding layers can incorporate a multidimensional-yet-unified aesthetic that will make neighbors do a double take.
