This handsome home in the Haverford Township portion of South Ardmore is sooooo close to our First-Time Find price ceiling it hurts. Maybe if the owner had taken just another $15,000 off its asking price when it got cut at the start of August, we would have held off on featuring this home until Wednesday.

But it happens to be on the Main Line as well, so we can feature it here. Which we’re doing today because it has a lot to offer a young, growing family.

One of them is a good school district: that of Haverford Township.

Another is a convenient and historic location: you’re close to the heart of both the Main Line’s biggest and liveliest Main Street and the oldest and largest historically African-American community on the Main Line, not to mention both SEPTA Regional Rail and the Norristown High-Speed Line.

Then there’s the house itself.

With three bedrooms, two full baths, a large rear yard and a partially finished basement, there’s room for your family to relax, entertain and play.

This home has been lovingly maintained and kept up to date. The original hardwood floors in the main floor rooms sparkle and the roomy eat-in kitchen combines traditional white cabinetry with the latest stainless steel appliances.

Upstairs, the three bedrooms are all bright and sunny and the hall bath features an attractive stone tile surround for the vanity.

Downstairs, the basement features two rooms that could function as recreation or play space, a home office or even a spare bedroom.

The home is as attractive and comfortable on the outside as it is on the inside. There’s a cool and welcoming porch in front and a huge deck in the back that looks out over the ample back yard with plenty of shade trees.

Ceiling fans in almost every room help you save on your air conditioning and heating bills, and there’s driveway parking for several cars.
