It included a number of homes that would be considered relatively affordable for LMSD.

It sits on a double lot on a cul-de-sac in the popular college park neighborhood. Listed for $749K, this home has a nice front porch and a big back deck. The modern kitchen has granite counters, white shaker cabinets, and stainless appliances, including one of those funky new "smart" fridges (a Samsung Family Hub).

In neighboring Merion Station, Cindy toured this 1856 sq ft, 3 bed/2.1 bath brick colonial, listed for $550K.

The finished basement is used as a TV room. See the rest at: 418 Maplewood Rd, Merion Station, PA 19066.
There's always some buzz in the area when there are some newly listed Narberth Borough homes. The first of them was a twin on Dudley Ave on the North side of the Borough. This 2 bed/1.1 bath home has 1980 sq ft of living space and a long driveway, with a $380K price tag.

There are two homes for sale on that 400 block of Dudley, in Narberth. Listed for $385K, this 3 bed/1 bath twin has 1244 sq ft of living space, and a finished basement, with a nice paver patio in the back. Access that back yard through a mudroom, connected to a renovated kitchen with custom cabinetry and a Sub-Zero refrigerator. See for yourself at: 411 Dudley Ave, Narberth, PA 19072.
Right around the corner from those two Dudley Ave homes in Narberth is this 1816 sq ft, 4 bed/1.2 bath single at the end of a quiet dead-end street. There's a nice three-seasons porch in front and a covered porch out back. The third floor, with a powder room, has many possibilities, and is currently being used an art studio.
