Matt's Pick of the Week

About the Pick of the Week

Every week I bring you a Main Line Pick of the Week. After an exhaustive search of the current offerings, I am pleased to present the finest estates and best values that the Main Line has to offer. The "Pick of the Week" is selected from all homes for sale currently on the Realtor's multiple listing service (MLS), and may or may not be listed by Prudential Fox & Roach. -Matt

Best of the Main Line

264 Ithan Creek Rd, Villanova, PA

This home came on the market 05/21/2009 and is priced to sell. It started at $1,225,000 and is now at $998,000. For a home of its size in prestigious Villanova, there may not be a better deal in its price range. Also of note is the tax, which is only $11,995 a year, which is shockingly low for a 12 bedroom 5 and a half bath house with over 7,500 sq ft on almost 2 acres in Radnor Township. The costs of recreating an all-stone home with 8 fire places and such intricate details would be extremely high. This is a great example of the type of home the Main Line is famous for — 100 year old, one of a kind, stone colonial mansions. It also house a stunning pool with beautiful fountains.

The MLS # for this home is: 5536107.

Main Line Schools

Top-Notch Education

The Main Line has many excellent features, but one of its greatest assets is its many nationally recognized and ranked public and private schools. Not only does the Main Line have some of the best and highest rated grade schools, but is home to many world-class colleges and universities as well. One of the driving forces of real estate prices and a big part of desirability is an area's school system. Whether you are looking for a great school for your children, or want a good school system for resale value, the Main Line fulfills these criteria. With high test scores, low teacher to student ratios, and a lot of tax money going into the system, you cannot go wrong with any school district on the Main Line.
