Cindy did her usual new listing tour this week, getting the scoop on some new homes that might interest her clients. For the first time in a while, she managed to get her notes finished before any of the homes she saw went under contract. Maybe that's just coincidence, or maybe it's a sign that the market is slowing just a bit. In any event, let Cindy know if you see anything you like.
Cindy's tour started on the north side of Narberth Borough, at a home right across the street from Sabine Park. This 3025 sq ft, 4 bed 2.1 bath is listed at $735K. Outside, there's a deck, flagstone patio, paver walkway and big, private driveway. Inside, the house has a number of renovations, including an updated kitchen, and all-new carpeting. There's a laundry area on the second floor, with the bedrooms, and another in the unfinished basement. See more at: 220 Sabine Ave, Narberth.
Want one of those gorgeous stone French Normandy homes in Merion Station - but also want modern amenities inside? Have the best of both worlds with this renovated 5887 sq ft, 6 bed/5.1 bath, in the Merion Park neighborhood, listed for $1.295M. It has the beautiful kitchen and baths you'd expect at this price point, plus the character details you'll love, like multiple fireplaces, exposed beams, original ironwork, arched doorways, and more. There's also a finished lower level and half an acre of landscaped property outside. See for yourself at: 223 Hamilton Rd, Merion Station.
Just down the street from Wynnewood Valley Park, in Wynnewood's Penn Wynne neighborhood, was this 2296 sq ft, 4 bed/2.1 bath, listed for $569K. The updated eat-in kitchen looks modern with white cabinets, granite counters, wood floors and a SubZero fridge. The master has a large closet, tray ceiling, and the ensuite bath has a huge walk-in shower. The partially finished basement is a blank canvas that could be finished into a gym, entertaining space, or playroom. See the rest at: 233 Crosshill Rd, Wynnewood.
This next home is practically next door to the Haverford School, in Haverford. It's a 5 bed/3.1 bath, with 2737 sq ft of living space, listed for $725K. The listing describes the home as "in need of updating", but it has many attractive features. Outside is a level, fenced lawn and a side brick patio, with a driveway and a garage. The eat-in kitchen is big, and has a butler's pantry. The master suite comes with three large closets. See the photos and details at: 38 Buck Ln, Haverford.
Last but not least on Cindy's tour was this 4446 sq ft, 4 bed/4.1 bath in Villanova. Listed for $773K, it sits on a .69 acre lot, not far from Villanova University. The house has a very cool feel, almost hotel-like with its warm woods, open spaces, high ceilings, game room, and bedrooms with a lower-level view. Check out the walls of windows and skylights that let in so much natural light. See this one for yourself at: 1930 Stoneridge Lane, Villanova.
Every week, Cindy tours new listings in and around the Lower Merion School District, and shares her notes here. There are fewer new listings at this point in the Spring market, as June is typically known more for closings than opens. But there are still homes hitting the market each week, and Cindy took buyers out to see a few of them this weekend.
