Cindy started off October with a whirlwind tour of new listings all throughout Narberth and Lower Merion. Her husband was a bit slow, pulling the tour notes together this week, but the locals will certainly forgive him, as he was busy putting together their Narberth Oktoberfest!
Cindy tours new listings in the Lower Merion School District every week. If you want to make sure you don't miss any of her tours, follow her Facebook page, or use the form on this page to add your email address to her growing tour email list.
Cindy's tour started in Bala, with this 2092 sq ft, 5 bed/2.0 bath twin, listed for $599K. This century-old house has some classic features, like hardwood floors throughout and a huge wrap-around porch, together with some modern-looking renovations. The updated kitchen definitely has a modern look with pops of color and custom cabinetry. The large, full basement has tons of possibility. See more at: 138 Union Ave, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004.
You can't get much closer to the Bala Cynwyd Elementary and Middle schools than this stone and brick colonial in Bala's College Park neighborhood. It's a 1961 sq ft, 4 bed/2 bath, listed for $450K. It has a covered side porch, attached garage, and walk-up attic. The full basement has laundry and is plumbed for a half-bath. It's listed as "awaiting your inspiration and updating", so the right buyer should probably be comfortable with a few projects. See for yourself at: 70 W. Princeton Rd, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004.
There were a few Narberth homes on Cindy's tour this week, starting with this 2563 sq ft, 4 bed/2.1 bath, listed for $645K. It sits at the end of a cul-de-sac, with up to four spots of available street parking, a few block's north of Narberth's popular downtown. The original part of the home has central AC, while the addition has window units. The home has an attic with pull-down ladder access, and a partially finished basement. See more details and photos at: 208 Barrie Rd, Narberth, PA 19072.
Narberth Borough homes always draw a good bit of interest, and any single-family home there under $500K will definitely draw a crowd. So don't be the last one see this 1900 sq ft, 4 bed/2.2 bath, three story Colonial, listed for $420K. The private driveway and garage are prized features to have in this beloved little Borough. There's a covered porch out front and an second-floor enclosed sun porch off of the master bedroom. See for yourself at: 225 Hampden Ave, Narberth, PA 19072.
Want old Main Line Charm with all the amenities of new construction? How about Narberth Place, an old church that's been converted to modern luxury condos. This best-of-both worlds opportunity is sitting right in the heart of Narberth Borough's north side, in this 3038 sq ft, 3 bed/3.1 bath 2-story condominium, listed for $835K. The home features stained-glass windows, 16 foot ceilings, and new everything. It comes with 2 indoor parking spots and garage storage. See the rest at: 200 Price Ave, #4, Narberth, PA 19072.
Just across Montgomery Ave from Narberth Borough's northern border is a Penn Valley neighborhood with this stone colonial, listed for $649K. It's a 4 bed/3.1 bath, with 2877 sq ft of living space, on a .41 acre lot. It has a new roof, hot water heater, and windows, but if you're looking for some projects, the sellers indicate that it could benefit from some updating. See more at: 511 Broad Acres Rd, Penn Valley, PA 19072.
Cindy's tour took her next to Wynnewood, where she saw this 3948 sq ft, 5 bed/4.1 bath, listed for $1.050M. It sits on a landscaped .62 acre lot, with a pool, on a cul de sac not far from Lower Merion High School. It has a private deck off the master bedroom, and an impressive master bath. Features include a second-floor laundry and a finished basement. Check it out at: 737 Cherry Cir, Wynnewood, PA 19096.
Also in Wynnewood, but closer to West Mill Creek Park, is this 5050 sq ft, 5 bed/4.1 bath stone colonial, listed for $1.025M. The 1.5 acre lot includes bluestone terraces, an outdoor fireplace, three-car garage, and a pool. The kitchen and butler's pantry were recently remodeled, and a great room in the walk-out basement has a fireplace and a bar. Look for yourself at: 129 E. Gulph Rd, Wynnewood, PA 19096.
Some houses go quickly off the active showing list, and this Ardmore home, at 106 Linwood, is one of them. The 4534 sq ft, 6 bed 4.2 bath was listed for $549,900, but went under agreement quickly. If you're in the market for something similar, have Cindy set up a search for you, and get updates on new listings.
In Bryn Mawr, between Ashbridge Park and Bryn Mawr College, Cindy toured this 4175 sq ft, 4 bed/3.1 bath European Colonial. Listed for $1.139M, the corner lot sits on more than half an acre, with a circular driveway, two-car garage, and a pool. The home features high ceilings, exposed beams, and leaded glass windows. An updated eat-in kitchen has wood floors, white cabinets and high-end appliances. See more at: 1109 Wyndon Ave, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010.
Last on Cindy's tour was this 3100 sq ft, 5 bed/4.1 bath, listed for $995K. It sits on over an acre on a quiet street in the heart of Gladwyne. The updated kitchen has cherry cabinets with white counters and tiles. Hardwood floors throughout the house were installed in 2015. One of the second floor bedrooms has a private staircase and bath, and may make a good au pair or in-law suite. One of te two patios has a view of Dove Lake.
