The heat and humidity are here in force this week, announcing, for anyone who missed the memo, that the Spring real estate market is officially over. Other than those few straggler closings, to finish up April and May deals, what else does the summer market have to offer here in Lower Merion and Narberth? Probably more than you think. Cindy saw nine of the new listings this week, and brought back enough notes and pics to keep even the most hard-core open-house junkies and Zillow-watchers happy!
Starting right here in Narberth Borough, Cindy toured this 5 bed/2.1 bath Colonial on almost a quarter-acre in South Narberth. Listed at $745K, the home has 2650 sq ft of living space inside, with a large deck, potting shed and a two-car garage outside. You'll probably like the big, updated kitchen, but you'll certainly like the recent $30k price reduction. See more at: 307 Woodside Ave, Narberth, PA 19072.
The next three homes on Cindy's new listing tour were all in Bala, and two of them were on one street. The first of these is a 2393 sq ft, 4 bed/2.2 bath stone colonial, for $629K. It's on Levering Circle, which is a cute little neighborhood that enjoys the peace and quiet that comes from a road with no cut-through traffic. It's also just around the corner from the Cynwyd Heritage Trail. The house is in great shape, with updated kitchen and baths. See the details and all the photos at: 55 Levering Circle, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004.
The house two doors down on Levering Circle was also on the tour, but it quickly went under agreement. It's a 2048 sq ft, 4 bed/2.1 bath stone and brick colonial, listed at $542K. The home has front and back patios and a second floor rear deck over the attached garage. You may have missed out on this one, but you can still see the specs and the photo gallery at: 59 Levering Circle, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004.
The third Bala house on Cindy's tour was on a different street, but still close by, in the College Park neighborhood over by the BC schools. This 2380 sq ft, 4 bed/2.1 bath home is listed at $535K. The kitchen is newer, and the big master bedroom suite has a dressing area and a walk-in closet. See the rest of the house at: 716 Harvard Road, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004.
There's always a few new listings throughout the neighborhoods of expansive Wynnewood. In Wynnewood's Penn Wynne section, Cindy toured this 2558 sq ft 5 bed/3.1 bath stone colonial. Listed at $685K, it has a newer kitchen and a couple of updated baths. The walkout basement has been used as a fairly spacious fitness studio. See for yourself at: 1360 Arbordale Road, Wynnewood, PA 19096.
In the nearby neighborhood of Wynnewood Valley, was this new listing for a 1743 sq ft, 3 bed/1.1 bath brick colonial. The updated kitchen has new appliances. There's an attached garage, unfinished basement, and decent-sized, flat yard in the back. Listed at $420K, this one has an open house on 6/23. Take a look at: 522 Twin Oaks Drive, Wynnewood, PA 19096.
The next Wynnewood home Cindy saw was in a neighborhood close to South Ardmore Park. It's a 3 bed/2.1 bath stone-front colonial, listed for $539,900. Outside is a flat, open backyard, a great front porch, and a second floor deck over the attached two-car garage. All the details and photos are at: 724 Argyle Road, Wynnewood, PA 19096.
The last Wynnewood home on Cindy's tour is on a quarter-acre lot in that great neighborhood between Narberth and Suburban Square, not far from the new Whole Foods. This 2706 sq ft, 4 bed/3 bath Cape Cod is listed at $725K. It has a first floor master bedroom, one-car attached garage and a screened-in side porch off the kitchen. See more at: 316 Kent Road, Wynnewood, PA 19096.
This being the Main Line, we'll always have a magnificent estate or two on the market. The new listing in Villanova is a 7951 sq ft, 5 bed/7.2 bath French country style mansion on an acre and a half of this ever-prestigious zip code. If the $3.985M price tag is in your budget, this one certainly has it all. See the details, photo gallery and even a drone video at: 1122 Brynlawn Road, Villanova, PA 19085.
