Riddlewood Homes, Middletown Township, Media PA

 

Riddlewood Swim ClubRiddlewood is a subdivision of houses located in Middletown Township, Media, PA post office.  It is comprised of Single Family Homes built on a tract of land in the mid to late 1950's   According to Wikipedia, Riddlewood was built on 218 acres of land that had once been owned by Samuel D Riddle.

Many of the 3-4 bedroom houses are built on lot sizes around a half acre or less.  Ranch, Split-Level and Cape Cod style houses are the main type of houses in Riddlewood.

 

Wolffs Apple HouseThe names of the streets in Riddlewood come from the names of horses owned by Samual D Riddle who was a prominent racehorse owner.  So when you see the names of the streets in Riddlwood, remember that they were named after Riddle's racehorses.  Here are the names of some of his horses and streets of Riddlewood: Gallant Fox Dr, Man O War Drive, Rampart East, Rampart West, Soldier Song Lane, War Admiral Lane, War Trophy Lane, Whirlaway Rd. I have to say it, knowing the history of this land, gives an interesting twist to this neighborhood.

 

Riddlewood does have its own swim club and Wolff's  Apple House Market and Garden Center hugs this community.

 

Riddlewood is close to the Granite Run Mall which is now being upgraded.  It is also close to Riddle Hospital and close to major highways.

 

Rose Tree Media School District serves this community.
