This contemporary Colonial not only has a stellar location, with just a short walk to public transportation, Bryn Mawr Hospital and all of the shops and restaurants the neighborhood has to offer, but has some interior perks as well: hardwood and tiled floors, spacious and free-flowing living spaces, a nicely updated kitchen complete with granite countertops, and a fabulous backyard and tiled patio to entertain. This quiet cul-de-sac home provides the right amount of space and is move-in ready, though you might want to spruce up the bathrooms a bit.  This home’s price was reduced by $40,900 on Dec. 5.

Nestled on a 1/4 acre lot in the family-friendly neighborhood of Ithan Mills lies this nicely finished French Colonial home. From the natural sunlight that floods the home from every angle to the hardwood floors throughout, to an incredibly dramatic two-story great room with floor-to-ceiling windows, you can tell this home is all about natural light. Sliding glass doors in the dining room bring you outside to the lush backyard and patio area, while back inside, a semi-updated kitchen with granite countertops allows for the creative eye to wander. Downstairs, a basement offers an additional living space as well as an added bonus: an in-home sauna. The local elementary school and a jogging trail are just steps away. This home has had four price reductions, the most recent being for $10,000 on Dec. 3.

This town home located in the Hermitage Village development has just about everything you could ask for, all at your fingertips. The community has a village green and gazebo that residents can access at any time. Its most desirable traits, however, are on the inside.

No matter where you are in this cozy space, you’re sure to feel comfortably at home.
