First up was this 2190 sq ft, 4 bed/1.25 bath Narberth twin, listed at $375K. The seller describes it as "priced to allow your personal touch", and it's certainly affordable by recent Narberth Borough standards. People are seeking out Narberth for its walkability and small-town charm, not for new construction and huge yards! It has a porch, a patio and a garage outside, and the back yard is landscaped. The inside layout leaves a number of options for changes and upgrades. See more at: 400 N. Essex Ave, Narberth, PA 19072.
