The Fall real estate market must be in full swing, because there are just a ton of new listings this week. Committed to getting her clients the best and latest market info, Cindy saw six more new listings since her Monday tour, plus a couple of homes with new list prices that deserved a revisit. These houses were all over Lower Merion, with homes from Villanova to Bala Cynwyd.
The Villanova stop on Cindy's tour was this 4 bed/2.2 bath, with 2978 sq ft of living space on a cul-de-sac lot with more than 3/4 of an acre. The master suite has two walk-in closets, and an en-suite with a fairly large sauna. Listed at $599,500, the finished walk-out basement has a home theater, storage and a powder room. The big back yard has a garage, a deck and a brick patio. See more at: 218 Stoneridge Ln, Villanova, PA 19085.
In Bryn Mawr, not far from Villanova University and Rosemont College, Cindy toured this 3 bed/3 bath ranch home, listed for $640K. If you're looking for one-floor living, this one has 2832 sq ft inside on an 1+ acre lot. The master has an updated bath and four closets. A full bath in the finished basement makes that additional bedroom for the current owners. A retro flair in the kitchen makes it really memorable room, and the adjacent dining room is large enough to seat a crowd.
