If life in the heart of the city isn’t a good fit for your family, but you still want to reside in Philadelphia County, we suggest browsing through current properties for sale in the Far Northeast.

Actually, before you take off on a search of your own, let us make things a little bit easier with this listing in Modena Park.

Whether you’re a newlywed couple looking to start a family or you already have children and need to upsize, it is suitable for all your needs. The property has three bedrooms, one and a half bathrooms, a living room, a formal dining room, a contemporary kitchen, a recently refinished family room, a fenced in yard, and a two-car driveway.

While most of the house is updated, certain areas (particularly the bathroom) could use some fixing up. It’s fine, though, because adding your own personal touch to the property will make you love it even more – and could be a bonding experience for the whole family.

Situated on the outskirts of Philadelphia and just minutes from Bucks County, this home is a great choice for all you nesters slowly branching your way out of the city. Go experience it for yourself and see what suburban living in an urban zip code is all about.
