Just Listed: Starter Condo in Chesterbrook
If you work in the King of Prussia/Valley Forge or Exton areas, there's probably no more convenient place to live than Niche.com's "Best Place to Live in Pennsylvania." And you can afford to live there.
Every year, the community, school and workplace rating site Niche.com — based in Pittsburgh, by the way — issues a list of the “Best Places to Live” in the nation and each state.
And each year, like clockwork, the master-planned community of Chesterbrook tops the list of Best Places to Live in Pennsylvania. And the honors don’t stop there: Niche also ranks it as the Best Place to Raise a Family in Pennsylvania, the Best Suburb to Live in Pennsylvania — and the site ranks it as the No. 9 Best Place to Live in America.
Given all that, if you’re looking for a suburb where you can start raising your own family, shouldn’t you consider Chesterbrook?
Here’s the good news: There are plenty of houses in Chesterbrook where you can start raising that family. This condo for sale is one of them.
It’s an end unit of a row of townhouse condos in Chesterbrook’s Embassy II neighborhood. And a recent update has made this early 1980s contemporary townhouse good as new.
That update renewed its hardwood floors and refreshed its eat-in kitchen. That kitchen has bright powder-blue walls and new wainscoting as well as up-to-date appliances.
The kitchen lies just to the right of the entrance hall, which leads to an open living-dining room with a wood-burning fireplace and sliding glass doors that open onto a patio shared with the unit next door.
(The two units are paired in an interesting fashion: the second-floor bedrooms of one unit sit over the living room and kitchen of the other.)
One of the two upstairs bedrooms has similar sliding doors that open onto the shared second-floor balcony.
The other is the master, which contains a renewed en-suite bathroom.
All this looks out onto a park-like shared green space. And if you like outdoor recreation, you’ll find even more than this: Walking trails connect your community to the Chester Valley Multi-Use Trail, Valley Forge National Historical Park and Chesterbrook’s own Wilson Farm Park, where you will find playgrounds for kids of all ages, picnic areas, a beach volleyball court, a putting green and an amphitheater featuring concerts on summer evenings.
Chesterbrook’s shopping center, a Trader Joe’s and the Picket Post Swim, Tennis and Paddle Club are all within a one-mile drive of this condo for sale.
Amenities, convenience, an attractive setting, a top-ranked community with top-ranked schools, and a short commute if you work in the greater King of Prussia/Valley Forge or Exton areas. What else could you possibly want in a starter home?
