Briarcliffe or Briarcliff? What Spelling Is Correct In Delaware County PA?

How Well Do You Know The Spelling For Local Communities In Delaware County PA?

Delaware County Pennsylvania has two communities with very similar names: Briarcliffe and Briarcliff.  Both are completely different communities in different townships and school districts.  Both offer completely different forms of housing. 

Briarcliff Condos Delaware County PABriarcliff without the "e" is a condominium community with units located in a six story building with parking on the ground level and it is located at 801 S Chester Rd, Swarthmore, in Ridley Township.  There are association fees connected with living in this community that go towards the maintenance of the common areas, snow removal and such. Briarcliff is located in the Ridley School District. 

The other Briarcliffe with the "e" is a community comprised with many red brick row homes/townhouse in Darby Township with a Glenolden mailing address. There are also single family homes.  A school district that serves Briarcliffe is Southeast Delco. 

Now I know I have had my moments of misspellings, so out of curiosity for this post I went on to my local MLS Trend and searched for settled properties in the last 6 months by the community names "Briarcliff and Briarcliffe" just to see if I was not alone in this confusion.  Well it turns out I am not alone!

For the last 6 month thanks to Trend MLS for this info:

3 were located in "Briarcliff" the condo community - 1 listing had it spelled incorrectly.

48 were in "Briarcliffe" the row/townhouse community - 10 listings had it misspelled.

Hummm, I am not alone in this mix up of spelling.

Now this is not a big deal, but if you want to be correct in your spelling, find a way to remember which community has an "E" or not.  Maybe one way to remember the Briarcliff Condo Community is that  this community sits up a hill off of the Blue Route (RT 476), and maybe that "e" rolled down the hill/cliff!

How do you remember the spellings of Briarcliffe and Briarcliff?
