Cindy started the tour right here in ever-popular Narberth, where anything priced right is flying off the market. Borough real estate seems like a hot topic in the local press, too, with a number of recent articles in the Inky and elsewhere. Just this week, Philly Mag featured the first house on Cindy's tour. Note that the article quoted a higher price than it's actually listed for, so keep that in mind if you go check it out.
The Narberth Borough property mentioned is a 4 bed/2 bath updated colonial, with 2232 sq ft of living space on a yard that's decent-sized by Narberth standards. It's an older house, like most of the Borough, but enough upgrades have been done, that you'd feel comfortable moving right in. Listed at $659K, it has a new kitchen, refinished floors, a new en-suite master bath, and central AC. See more at: 5 Langdon Lane, Narberth, PA 19072
This next one, just around the corner from General Wayne Park in Merion Station, is a 4 bed/ 3.1 bath Tudor with tons of unique features. It's not going to appeal to everyone, but the right buyer is going to make this their own, and have themselves a one-of-a-kind home. It has 3644 sq ft, including a big vaulted second-story family room straight out of Harry Potter. It's priced at $850K. Check out the pictures to see if this one's for you: 532 Lafayette Rd, Merion Station, PA 19066
Cindy saw four new listings in Wynnewood this week, starting with a 4 bed/2.2 bath in the neighborhood behind Lower Merion High School. Listed at $479K, it has 1632 sq ft inside, a front porch, a garage, and a yard surrounded by a white picket fence outside. Interior features include hardwood floors, a finished basement and new AC. See the rest at: 515 Owen Road, Wynnewood, PA 19096.
In the Penn Wynne section of Wynnewood is this 4 bed/2.1 bath, with 2495 sq ft, for $439K. Plenty of upgrades in this one, including a new kitchen and a renovated master suite. The master bath is a highlight. See the details and the rest of the photos at: 31 Henley Road, Wynnewood, PA 19096
A couple of blocks over on another tree-lined Penn Wynne street, is this 3 bed/2 bath 1740 sq ft home. Listed at $419,900, this one looks renovated from top to bottom, with a new kitchen, refinished floors, second-floor laundry, and central AC. Check out the details and see the gallery of pictures at: 1427 Edgevale Rd, Wynnewood, PA 19096.
The last of the new Wynnewood listings Cindy toured was the biggest of the four, at 3767 sq ft. Also in the Penn Wynne neighborhood, this 7 bed/2.1 bath home is listed for $668,500, and sits on over a third of an acre with a backyard pool. This one has always been owned by the same family, and it's got plenty of room for a big new family to move in. The home has gas heat, central AC, and comes with a one year warranty. Check out the rest at: 1216 Drayton Ln, Wynnewood, PA 19096.
The Lower Merion School District doesn't offer a ton of opportunities in the $300K range, so buyers on a budget may want to check out this Ardmore home. Listed at $299,900, it's a 3 bed/1 bath twin with 1521 sq ft in the Montgomery County side of Ardmore (which means, it's in the LMSD). At this price point you might not expect such a nice, brand new kitchen, with stainless appliances and quartz countertops. Last we heard, this one might be under contract, so call before you head to the Sunday open house. See the pics at: 131 Arnold Rd, Ardmore, PA 19003.
The last house on Cindy's tour was this picture-perfect Maisonette center hall colonial in Haverford. The home is a 5 bed/2.1 bath, with 2701 sq ft, listed for $815K. The inside is nice, and the outdoor spaces are especially lovely. Take a look for yourself at 414 Berkley Rd, Haverford, PA 19041.
Between Memorial Day and all the Spring market closings, Cindy's Ridgway's schedule has been a bit hectic. But she still managed to see a number of new listings over the last week or so.
This first one is a 5 bed/2.1 bath center hall colonial in a popular Wynnewood neighborhood between Narberth and Suburban Square. It has 2182 sq ft inside, and a quarter acre outside, with a front porch, patio, lawns in front and back, a driveway and a garage. Listed at $742K, the kitchen looks pretty modern, with stainless and granite. Homes on this street move quickly. See more at: 306 Hathaway lane, Wynnewood, PA 19096
Also on the Wynnewood leg of Cindy's tour was this 6 bed/4.1 bath center hall colonial. It has 3935 sq ft of living space on a third of an acre, for $1.1 M. Buyers will love the big beautiful kitchen with a butler's pantry and walk-in pantry. See the photos and details of this one at: 252 Beech Hill Rd, Wynnewood, PA 19096
Cindy also toured this toured this 1375 sq ft 3 bed/2 bath in Wynnewood's Penn Wynne neighborhood. With a budget friendly price of $349K, this one is steps away from the beloved Penn Wynne Elementary. It has cute yard, a finished basement and an attached garage. See for yourself at: 249 Rock Glen Road, Wynnewood, PA 19096
This next Wynnewood home requires a more flexible budget, as the aerial shot in the property's photo gallery makes immediately clear. For $2.399M, you can have this spectacular 8765 sq ft, 6 bed/5.2 bath country estate. Inside has everything you'd imagine, from the chef's kitchen to the spacious bedrooms and renovated bathrooms. The property also comes with a three-car garage and upstairs apartment, gorgeous landscaped grounds and a pool. Take a look at: 716 Cherry Circle, Wynnewood, PA 19096
There were plenty to see in Wynnewood this week, but there often are, as Wynnewood is actually a pretty expansive community composed of many distinct neighborhoods. Cindy's tour included this 4 bed/3.1 bath stone colonial in the wonderful South Ardmore park section. Listed at $750K, this one has 3040 sq ft inside, plus a decent yard, with a garage and a gorgeous slate patio out back. The main floor has an open floor plan with a big kitchen, stocked with high end appliances. Check this one out at the June 11 open house, or see the description and photos at: 716 Greythorne Rd, Wynnewood, PA 19096
The final Wynnewood property on Cindy's tour is just down the street from the big new Whole Foods. This 1891 sq ft, 3 bed/2.1 bath brick colonial sits back a bit from Wynnewood Road on a quarter acre, and has a pretty and private backyard, with an attached two-car garage. Listed at $464K, there are hardwoods throughout, and renovated kitchen and baths. See the rest of the photos and all the details at: 1129 W. Wynnewood Rd, Wynnewood, PA 19096
The Lower Merion School district has plenty of beautiful homes, but it has relatively little new construction, and not much to choose from as far as "new" homes. Cindy did tour a couple that were brand new this week, in a townhouse development right around the corner from Bryn Mawr Hospital. 75 S Merion Ave, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010 is a 3 bed/3.2 bath end unit, with 2665 sq ft. The $798K price includes rough-in for future elevator.
You could have the beautiful model home in the same Bryn Mawr townhouse development, and that one, Ellis S. Merion Ave, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010, already has an elevator! Everything inside is gorgeous and brand new, plus you get this rooftop deck. This one is listed at $796, with 2665 sq ft, in a 3 bed/3.2 bath.
This next home in Bryn Mawr is far from new - but it's a built-in-1885 Main Line classic that has all sorts of modern upgrades. Listed at $1.150M, this 5 bed/4.1 bath Victorian has over 7500 sq ft of living space on close to an acre of land. If you're looking for a unique home, with a combination of old and new, put this one on your Sunday (June 11) open house list. Or just take a look at: 121 Pennswood Rd, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010
The two-home Bala leg of Cindy's tour started with this 5 bed/4.1 bath, 2448 sq ft colonial for $649K. It has the character details of an older house, with a big front porch, a modern kitchen, and a finished basement. See the details and pictures at: 320 Kent Rd, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004
Also in Bala was this 6 bed/2.2 bath with 1742 sq ft. Listed at $635K, it has an attached garage and a nice little yard. One interesting and unexpected feature of this one was this very large family room on the second floor. See the rest of the photos and all the details of this home at: 100 Maple Ave, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004
This one has a Narberth address, and is a short drive from the Borough, close to Penn Valley and Belmont Hills. It's a 4 bed/3.1 bath with 2905 sq ft inside and half an acre outside, and it's listed at $555K. Those stats don't tell the whole story, though, as this house has a huge lower level that makes it pretty unique. Right now the 1600 sq ft downstairs is being used as two professional offices, and which have access straight to the side driveway. Another interesting feature is the bedroom that is currently configured as a second story library/study. If you're looking for a home with plenty of space for a business office (or possibilities for an in-law/au pair suite), check this one out at: 1136 Greentree Ln, Narberth, PA 19072
There are so many buyers looking for Narberth Borough these days, that there's a ton of excitement and interest for each new listing that comes along. This 2010 sq ft 5 bed/2.1 bath probably had plenty of eyes on it this week just for location alone, as Narberth's walkability, easy commutes, and charming downtown have made it extremely popular with today's families. Listed at $560K, it has an updated kitchen with stainless appliances and a number of recent upgrades. Check it out at: 217 Wayne Ave, Narberth, PA 19072
Want the amenities of Narberth Borough on a cul de sac of more modern-looking homes? That's Hansen Court, where you'll find this 4 bed/2.1 bath with 2286 sq ft. The refinished hardwood floors look great, as does the modern eat-in kitchen, and the big master suite and bath. The $648K price tag gives you a Narberth-sized yard, but the lawn and back deck look nice. See the rest at: 7 Hansen Court, Narberth, PA 19072
Cindy's tour ended with four properties in Merion Station, starting with this 1900 sq ft 5 bed/2 bath home. It's just across Rockland Ave from Narberth, putting it squarely in the highly sought after "Near-berth" neighborhoods on the Borough perimeter. Listed at $439K, the interior is nice, but the pretty yard, with a patio, paths and a koi pond may just steal the show. See for yourself at: 501 E. Wynnewood Rd, Merion Station, PA 19066
Next up was this 4 bed/2.1 bath split level with 2659 sq ft on a nice Merion Station lot just around the corner from the award-winning Merion Elementary. It has plenty of features, including central AC, hardwood floors, a newer kitchen with granite and stainless, with two sinks and dishwashers. See more at: 400 Merion Rd, Merion Station, PA 19066
Also in Merion Park is this 5 bed/4.1 bath stone colonial for $929K. It has over 5000 sq ft inside, with a spacious master suite and a second potential in-law suite on the main level. The chef in the family will like the big kitchen with Sub-zero fridge, stainless appliances and granite counters. All the details and pics at: 612 Manayunk Rd, Merion Station, PA 19066
Last, but certainly not least, is this dramatic 4651 sq ft 6 bed/4.2 bath stone colonial, listed at $1.020M. If you're the type that likes big beautiful kitchens, and spacious suites with awesome bathrooms and and walk-in closets (and who isnt!), this one might be for you! Take a peek at: 550 Greystone RD, Merion Station, PA 19066
