Main Line Monday: A First Resort in Devon for $355K
This home in Devon’s Arbordeau condominium community just misses the cutoff for our “First-Time Find” feature, but it’s definitely within reach of many buyers today, and you get a lot for your money here — including, if you wish, an opportunity to take a mid-1970s home with strong bones into the here and now.
Given that the kitchen and bathrooms in this home were recently updated, all that may be required is the right furniture, for this home’s stylish contemporary bones are solid. The living room has a handsome brick-arched fireplace and striking floating staircase as main design elements and is flooded with light from the sliding glass door that leads out onto the patio, one of two attached to this home. There are also two balconies on the upper level, giving it plenty of private outdoor space.
But you can also enjoy the outdoor and indoor facilities available to everyone in this gated community of 120 homes on 15 landscaped acres. Those include a pool and clubhouse with rooms for meeting and entertaining as well as three guest rooms where you can put up your visiting friends for $75 per day.
But maybe you actually appreciate 1970s modernist architecture, which the current owner didn’t. Then you might want to give the recently upgraded bathrooms and kitchen another makeover to more closely match the design of the home. If that’s not an issue for you, or you’d rather hang onto the money, they’re in great shape already.
