What $500K Will Buy You in Exton
Just one home that's currently on the market - but it's a beautiful, secluded contemporary retreat in a clearing surrounded by woods.
Our Chester County Love Tour wraps up today with a stop on the “extended Main Line” — Exton, home of the Main Street that isn’t.
Out here you’ll find a number of very nice homes on large lots away from the malls that line Pottstown Pike and define Exton in the eyes of outsiders. But right now, you’ll find only one of these within our $500,000 neighborhood.
It’s actually in Lionville, just up the road from Exton proper in Uwchlan Township. This attractive contemporary home on a three-acre lot is hardly in what you’d call a “walkable community,” but surprisingly enough, there are several places you can walk to from it. These include the Lionville Shopping Center, Lionville Park, baseball and soccer fields, playgrounds, the Lionville YMCA and all three of the schools your kids will attend, Lionville Elementary, Lionville Middle and Downingtown East High School.
At the same time that all this surrounds you, you enjoy tranquility thanks to the woods that surround the clearing around your home. And this home is equipped for just about anything you might want to do, be it alone, with your family, or with friends and guests.
Its centerpiece is a two-story-high great room with large windows, skylights and a full-height stone fireplace that’s sure to make an impression on your visitors. On the other side of the fireplace is a comfortable family room with wet bar and sliding glass doors that open onto a commodious deck and stone terrace.
With a six-burner propane stove, Viking wall oven, broiler and microwave, and Sub-Zero glass-front stainless-steel refrigerator, not to mention plenty of granite-topped counter space, the upgraded kitchen stands ready for you to let your culinary creativity loose.
For formal occasions, there’s a dining room next to the kitchen.
Upstairs, at one end of the balcony hallway, you’ll find a luxurious master suite whose bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and whose skylit bathroom boasts a Jacuzzi tub, shower and dual vessel vanities. The hall bath the other two bedrooms share also has dual vanities, so no one should have trouble getting ready in the morning.
Downstairs you’ll find spaces made for fun: a game room with bar, a billiard room and a covered stone patio for outdoor enjoyment no matter what the weather.
In addition to being a short walk from everything Lionville offers, this home is also a short drive away from the Pennsylvania Turnpike, the Exton Bypass and Exton Regional Rail station.
