Which means that this small wonder of a home lets you get in on downtown living, suburban-style, on the cheap.

In this case, this twin’s modest size (1,394 square feet) and scale work to your advantage, for they make it affordable, and that in turn means you can enjoy everything that people love about Wayne without having to spend a bundle to do so.

Radnor Township has given you some of this home’s nicest features for free. The best of those is nearby Cowan Park, the oldest park in the Radnor park system. Created in the early 1950s on the site of the historic Radnor Natatorium, the park includes a basketball court, baseball fields, volleyball court and playground, not to mention picnic tables and a rain garden next to Gulph Creek, which runs through the park.

The home itself is no slouch either. Recently renovated and updated, the home has all the features modern families look for, including a spacious, open main floor where only a staircase separates the living room from the combined dining room and kitchen. The kitchen boasts all-new stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and plenty of cabinet space.

The two upstairs bedrooms have recently installed hardwood floors and walk-in closets, and the hall bath they share has dual vanities for convenience. Downstairs, behind the kitchen, a carpeted room with its own full bath could serve as a third bedroom, a den, or whatever other function you might want. Laundry facilities are in the unfinished basement.

The park isn’t the only nice thing you can enjoy nearby. You’re just a short stroll from the center of Wayne, which hums with activity year round. Community fairs and events provide plenty of fun, and if you feel like taking in something more, the Paoli/Thorndale Regional Rail Line can take you to it.
