Things slowed down a bit in the summer, but as we approach October, there are plenty of new listings out there for buyers to see in and around Narberth and Lower Merion. Cindy was joined for part of this week's tour by the newest member of her team, Celine O'Neill. Cindy brought back notes from nine new listings this week, in quite a few price points throughout the Lower Merion School District.
Halfway between Merion Elementary and the Merion Tribute House, is this 4 bed/2.1 bath in Merion Station. It has 3886 sq ft inside, and sits on a big half-acre lot with a swimming pool. Listed at $975K, the house has a big, bright eat-in kitchen with white cabinets, an attached garage, and a covered back porch. See more at 600 Zollinger Way, Merion Station, PA 19066.
Right nearby, in the Indian Creek neighborhood of Wynnewood, Cindy toured this 2465 sq ft, 3 bed/2.1 bath. The 1/3 acre lot is right behind the large St. Charles Seminary property, not far from Shortridge Park. This modern-looking home has an open floor plan and high ceilings, and is listed at $699K. It has a first-floor master suite, a recently updated eat-in kitchen with new stainless appliances, an indoor sunken jetted spa, and an attached two-car garage. See the rest at: 743 Periwinkle Lane, Wynnewood, PA 19096.
Cindy's tour moved on to Ardmore, where she saw this 3 bed/1.1 bath single, right around the corner from Linwood Park. It has 1258 sq ft of living space, and is listed at $434K. It has hardwood floors, a renovated kitchen with stainless appliances, a finished basement with powder room, and an attached garage. Learn more and see photos at: 217 Williamsburg Road, Ardmore, PA 19003.
The first of four Bryn Mawr homes was this 4 bed/4.1 bath new construction, not far from the Baldwin School. We couldn't find a great photo of the house, but everything inside looks brand new and gorgeous. It sits on more than a 1/3 acre and has 5322 sq ft of living space. The LMSD doesn't have a ton of new construction single family homes, so this luxury model comes with an understandable price tag of just under $1.4M. See the details and photo gallery at: 544 New Gulph Road, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010.
Next was this Bryn Mawr 2857 sq ft, 4 bed/3.1 bath in the neighborhood between the Shipley campuses, and close to Bryn Mawr College. Listed at $749K, the home is on a 1/4 acre lot with plenty of interesting outdoor spaces and a greenhouse. The stone walls and wide-plank hardwoods floors give the home a vintage feel, but there are several modern upgrades, including the roof, driveway, and newer stainless appliances. Pictures and details at: 127 Kennedy Lane, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010.
Also in Bryn Mawr, in a neighborhood closer to Harriton High School, is this 2618 sq ft 5 bed/3.1 bath stone colonial, listed for $879K. Tons of curb appeal with this one; the 3/4 acre lot is well landscaped, with patios and gardens and a big lawn. Plenty of potential inside in this home that hasn't changed hands in 45 years. See more info and the exterior shots here: 611 Harriton Road, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010.
The last of the Bryn Mawr new listings was a 6 bed/7.3 bath, 12,880 sq ft mansion on an almost-2-acre landscaped lot. This place has everything you could ask for and more. It's listed at $6.75M, but it costs nothing to check out the picture gallery here: 929 Rock Creek Road, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010.
Haverford has some amazing homes in gorgeous neighborhoods, too - like this 7734 sq ft, 6 bed/6.3 bath estate home. Situated on a well manicured 1.28 acre lot, it has an asking price of $1.9M. As you would expect at this price point, the kitchen is perfect and the bathrooms are amazing. See for yourself at: 310 Brentford Road, Haverford, PA 19041.
Cindy's tour wrapped up in Villanova, at this 4463 sq ft, 5 bed/3.1 bath on a pretty .68 acre lot down the road from Villanova University. The outside is well-landscaped, with a backyard pool. Inside, updates include a renovated kitchen with high end stainless appliances. The master suite has two big walk-in closets and a big newly renovated master bath. Check it out at: 1624 W. Montgomery Ave, Villanova, PA 19085.
Cindy Ridgway does her regular weekly tour of new listings, in and around Narberth and Lower Merion, because she is committed to making sure that her clients have the latest market information on pricing and availability. She saw several new homes on her new listings tour this week, and took some notes to give everyone out there following this market a sneak preview. In addition, between last weekend and this weekend, Cindy put two of her own new Narberth Borough listings on the market. We'll give you a quick report on those as well.
In case you missed the open house last Sunday, Cindy listed a 4 bed/3.1 bath colonial carriage home on the very cool, modern Hansen Court cul de sac on the north side of Narberth Borough. Updates in this home include newer kitchen and bathrooms, plumbing, roof, windows, central AC, and exterior paint. It has that elusive first floor bedroom which gives the home flexible layout possibilities. See more at: 29 Hansen Court, Narberth, PA 19072
If you're looking in the the south side of Narberth Borough, check out Cindy's open house Sunday for a new listing hitting this weekend on Elmwood Ave. It's a 5 bed/2.1 bath stone colonial within a block of both the train station and Narberth's wonderful downtown. Throw in the award-winning elementary school right down the street, and this one is a dream for buyers who crave walkability and easy commutes. Inside, it has a new kitchen and first floor powder room, and outside it has a private driveway and two-car garage. It's not showing until the weekend, but you can see a few pics here: 112 Elmwood Ave, Narberth, PA 19072.
Cindy's listings are both in Borough, but just outside Narberth's borders, in a part of Merion Station close enough to be called "Near-berth", is this 2557 sq ft, 5 bed/3.1 bath colonial, listed for $670K. Outside, it has a cute, landscaped back yard with a driveway and a detached two-car garage. The kitchen isn't listed as new, but it looks good and it's big and bright. The master bath has been updated with a custom shower, granite counters, good storage, and radiant heat floors. See the rest at: 519 S, Narberth Ave, Merion Station, PA 19066.
The next Merion Station home on Cindy's tour was this 3 bed/2.1 bath, 2084 sq ft colonial. Listed for $479K, it has a newer kitchen with granite counters, stainless appliances and a funky stainless steel tile backsplash. The unfinished basement has storage, laundry and a cedar closet. See the details and photos at: 531 E. Wynnewood Ave, Merion Station, PA 19066.
The next Merion Station home on Cindy's tour was this 5372 sq ft 4 bed/4.1 bath tudor on the other side of Montgomery Ave. It sits on nearly half an acre in the neighborhood next to Merion Mercy Academy, with an asking price of $1.495M. Classic Main Line charm on the outside with tons of modern upgrades inside, and the yard is incredible. See the rest of the details and photo gallery at 412 Academy Circle, Merion Station, PA 19066.
The Merion Station trio was followed by these next three in Bala, starting with a 2208 sq ft 4 bed/1.1 bath colonial. Outside it has more than a 1/3 acre at the end of a quiet cul de sac. Listed at $579K, this one has a finished third floor and finished basement with wonderful potential, plus a great yard and back deck. See the rest at: 7 W. Newfield Way, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004.
The next Bala house was on the edge of the College Park neighborhood, and down the street from the Bala Cynwyd schools. This 4 bed/2.1 bath with 1649 sq ft, is listed at $424K. It has a great new kitchen with stainless appliances and two dishwashers. The finished basement has great "man-cave" or playroom potential. See for yourself at: 705 Conshohocken State Road, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004.
Cindy saw a "coming soon" listing that was also on Conshohocken State Road in Bala Cynwyd. This 4 bed/3 bath will be listed at $450K. Keep your eyes out for this one.
In neighboring Wynnewood, Cindy toured this beautiful 4396 sq ft, bed.3.2 bath stone colonial. Outside is a big lawn, with a private drive and garage. Listed at $895K, the kitchen is big and newer, with granite and stainless. The finished lower level has a kitchenette and a half bath. A killer master bath in one of the home highlights. See more at: 250 Gypsy Lane, Wynnewood, PA 19096.
If your budget has a bit of flexibility, check out this 8000 square foot English Tudor, listed for $2.375M. The home is a 4 bed/5.3 bath on 1.65 acres on a great street in North Bryn Mawr. Each of the bedrooms has its own en suite bath, while the master actually has "his and her" tubs. See the impressive and immaculate interior in the photo gallery here: 815 Harriton Road, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19010.
