Main Line Monday: The Real Deal in Berwyn for $415K

A well-appointed house in great shape in a top-notch Main Line school district for under $500K? Pinch yourself – you’re not dreaming.

We don’t have a “Bargain of the Week” department here at “Property,” but if we did, this beautifully maintained, totally renovated split-level on a wooded lot in Berwyn would be a featured home.

But since Berwyn is on the Main Line, we can showcase it here. And because we can showcase it here, we bet the listing agent will get some inquiries soon from parents who have dreamed about getting their kids into Tredyffrin-Easttown schools but despaired over how much they’d have to fork over to buy a house in the district.

This home is the answer to their prayers. It lacks some of the amenities that buyers have come to expect nowadays — for instance, it has only one full bathroom, which its three bedrooms share — but in 1956, when this home was built, such things were not the norm.

The owners have added some of those newer obsessions to this home, however. The kitchen, for instance, has the granite countertops and stainless steel appliances that have become de rigeur in modern homes. The bathroom has been upgraded with new fixtures and fittings, including a rain shower head in the tub/shower.  The powder room on the main floor is likewise up to date. All-new carpets line the floors, and the kitchen and rec room have new hardwood floors.

Out back, a new wood deck offers space for relaxation, outdoor entertaining and enjoyment of the large wooded back yard. The nature lover in you will appreciate this space, and the do-it-yourself gardener will relish the opportunity to make both the front and the back yards bloom and sparkle as much as the inside does. There’s even enough room to add active recreation features like a gym set, pool or sport court, or you could take up home gardening.

And down below, there’s a huge rec room that can serve a variety of functions.

Not only is this home a real Main Line bargain, it’s conveniently situated within walking distance of the local library and the Berwyn Regional Rail station.
