First appeared in the March, 2014 issue of Philadelphia magazine.
THE LURE: “The colonials are simply indigenous to our area, and it’s the style that most buyers are attracted to,” says Coldwell Banker Preferred Blue Bell’s Nicole Miller-Desantis. “Buyers know they’ll ultimately have resale value.”
KEEP IN MIND: On the Main Line, these houses can have hidden expenses: lot premiums, high utilities, spring and fall landscaping costs. “It can be expensive to ‘live the dream’ in suburbia,” Miller-Desantis warns.
WHERE TO LOOK: Main Line, Gwynedd Valley, Blue Bell.
EXPECT TO PAY: $500,000 to $1 million-plus.
On the market: A 6BR, 5.5BA in Chestnut Hill, $1.975 million. Contact: Linda Baron, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Fox & Roach, 215-619-2344.
