Every week, Cindy Ridgway tours new listings throughout Lower Merion and Narberth. She toured quite a few in Wynnewood this week. If you think it feels like it's hard to pin down just exactly where "Wynnnewood" is, you're not alone! Wynnewood is very big and has an unusual shape. It's actually comprised of many, very different neighborhoods, with different feels and home styles, and some quite a distance from each other. If specific LMSD schools are important to you, make sure you have an agent who knows the boundaries for each catchment area - it's not as simple as you might think! Here are some of the homes Cindy toured, and her notes:
Cindy's tour started in Penn Valley, with this 3506 sq ft, 4 bed/3.1 bath stone colonial. Listed for an even $1M, it sits on over 2/3 of an acre in the neighborhood behind Penn Valley Elementary School. The eat-in kitchen is large, with a big granite dining island with a cooktop. Off the kitchen is a nice back deck, next to a paver patio. Two of the second floor bedrooms have en-suite baths. The master has a sitting room and his & her closets. See more at: 211 Ardleigh Rd, Penn Valley, PA 19072.
Next up was this 3305 sq ft, 5 bed/4.1 bath Tudor, listed for $699K. The 1/3 acre lot is in a Merion Station neighborhood close to the St Joseph's campus and the Merion Botanical Park. The wonderful curb appeal is matched by the perfectly charming interior with original moldings and some vintage leaded windows. An old-world-style kitchen has two stoves, soapstone counters, a pantry and a back staircase. The fifth bedroom includes a full bath, offering in-law or au pair suite possibilities. Check this one out at: 3 Merion Rd, Merion Station, PA 19066.
The Wynnewood part of Cindy's tour started in the Penn Wynne section, in a neighborhood near the Perelman School and Kaiserman JCC. This first home is a completely renovated 2502 sq ft, 5 bed/2.1 bath, listed for $499,900. Everything feels fresh and new after the renovation, which included a new, modern kitchen and an open concept first floor. See for yourself at: 1418 Dorset Ln, Wynnewood, PA 19096.
The next of the Wynnewood homes on Cindy's tour this week was this 1186 sq ft, 3 bed/1 bath twin. If you're looking for school walkability, you can't do much better than this Penn Wynne location, in the neighborhood behind Penn Wynne Elementary. Listed for $325K, the home has a newer kitchen and HVAC, and new paint and carpeting. The home has a basement, and a garage out back. See the rest at: 1473 Hampstead Rd, Wynnewood, PA 19096.
Just a few blocks away from Penn Wynne ES, on the other side of Haverford Road from the last home, is this 2750 sq ft, 4 bed/3.2 bath center hall colonial. It sits on a third of an acre lot, and is listed for $875K. The home has a 2-car garage and a nice lawn outside, and plenty of upgrades inside, like an updated kitchen, 2-zone AC and 4-zone heat. The nicely finished basement is a great bonus space. See the details and more pictures at: 421 Witley Rd, Wynnewood, PA 19096.
Here's another center hall stone colonial in Wynnewood. This 1756 sq ft, 3 bed/2.1 bath home, listed for $465K, is just down the street from the South Ardmore Park. Recent upgrades include a new roof, powder room, replacement windows, basement floor, and newly refinished hardwoods. The seller indicates that buyers may want to attend to some paint and cosmetic projects. See more at: 611 Greythorne Rd, Wynnewood, PA 19096.
Also in that South Ardmore Park neighborhood, and just two streets over from the last Wynnewood home, is this 2566 sq ft, 4 bed/2.2 bath colonial, listed for $619K. Outside is a small deck and a fenced, flat backyard. The basement is half finished and half storage. Harwood floors are throughout the first floor and some of the second, and the kitchen is updated with granite and stainless. See more photos and details at: 615 Latham Rd, Wynnewood, PA 19096.
Last up was this 1252 sq ft, 3 bed/2 bath twin in Narberth Borough. It's listed in as-is condition for $270K.

The home has a newer full bath and laundry room on the first floor, a covered front porch, and an unfinished basement.
