Earlier this year there were no listings available in the Greens at Waynesborough, a Toll Brothers Development in Easttown Township about 16 years old, just down the road from their latest development in Newtown Square at Liseter on the old Dupont Estate where Carriage Homes, Small Single Family and Executive Homes are all available for sale. Today, that situation has changed, The Greens at Waynesborough in Easttown Township, part of the Tredyffrin Easttown School District and only minutes away from Episcopal Academy, has three active listings all priced under $1,000,000 but not by much, one home priced at $995,000 is under contract,  two more homes are pending listed for $985,000 and $995,000 respectively. One settled in April for $950,000 and this is probably why all the others availa...

Full disclosure here, the Marine mentioned in the title is my son, Jeremy Vandekar. He left our home in Berwyn for Parris Island to join the Marines on Mother's Day several years ago to start his journey. This Sunday, he will be speaking about his experiences during training and his two tours in Iraq with 2nd Recon Bn. as told in his book Kicking Ace Taking Names at Easttown Library in Berwyn. I am looking forward to his talk, and to hear his stories. Proud father, absolutely. If you want to attend you can register for the talk which is at 2.00 pm at Easttown Library in Berwyn on First Ave, this Sunday February 24th. Here is a brief video from his website www.kickingace.com. Look forward to meeting you Sunday if you can make it.

In Easttown Township the Greens at Waynesboro is a deisrable residential development next to Waynesborough Golf Club, originally built by Toll Brothers and located just off Route 252 with a Berwyn postal address it is convenient for access to Newtown Square or Paoli. It is close the Episcopal School campus built a few years ago although it lies in the Tredyffrin Easttown School District. At the moment there are no homes available for sale in the Greens @ Waynesborough, one sale from last year in the last six months comes up when searching for homes. As we have said several times in the last few weeks there is a definite lack of inventory for homes like this in the area and buyers are out in force snapping up the available inventory. Days on Market are falling and Sellers may be waiting ...

As mentioned in several recent posts, the local market is suffering from a lack of inventory. In Chester County the inventory absorption rate has dropped to just over six months, implying if no more homes came on the market, every home currently on the market would take just over six months to sell. Whilst this is unrealistic it does indicate compared to last year when the rate was well above fourteen months how the market has changed.This lack of inventory is well indicated by the recent statistics for the Greens at Waynesborough located in Berwyn in Easttown Township off route 252 between Paoli and Newtown Square. Children attend Tredyffrin Easttown Schools, the elementary school is Beaumont, the middle school is the T/E Middle School and all students attend Conestoga High School. The...

We often get foxes through our yard, helps keep the squirrel and chipmunk communities in check. This one was very young out in the snow the other day. Every tine a car passed on the road by our property he got nervous. I think he just found something under the snow here and took it under a tree to have a better look. He tok a while, not sure if it was a chipmunk or a mole. Then off he took to explore some more. As I said he looked like a very young cub, possibly from the vixen who trotted through the yard over the summer. Anyway he looks healthy and fit with a lovely coat.

Saturday afternoon Berwyn Fire Company, an all volunteer fire company on the Main Line outside of Philadelphia showed their stuff with several examples of how they fight different fires and rescue members of the public in demonstrations at their firehouse in Berwyn, PA on Bridge Ave. However, Sunday morning it was the real deal as they answered a call to a historic barn that was on fire on Sugartown Road taking several hours to bring under control and clear the site with Sugartown Road closed between Newtown and Leopard Roads. Many of these same volunteer firefighters who exhibited their skills Saturday for the public were at the scene. It takes about $4000 to equip a firefighter with all the required clothing and tools, and many hours of training on the fire fighters part. The engines...

  Upper Stream Farm in Berwyn is a unique and historic property built on four point eight acres out of five hundred acres originally owned by William Penn and deeded to William Mordant in 1681. On the property is the oldest bank barn in Chester County. We got the chance to tour the property today with the listing agent and get some shots of this fabulous barn. The property is zoned commercial so there are some great uses this property can be put to, maybe an antique store, or a destination wedding location, the property has its on pub located in the original spring house. Now listed at $1.25 million and listed as a short sale the property gives many options to future owners. Located close to route 202 it gives easy access to those important roads necessary to a business owner. In 1770 ...

We got this rose as a gift, it was in a small pot intended to be displayed inside. Well like all good gardeners, Trudy decided it needed the great outdoors. We have done nothing to coddle it, it had to styand on its own, and this morning it just looked glorious.

Today, there are fifty five homes on the market available for purchase in the award winning Tredyffrin Easttown School district, rated as having the 3rd best high school, Conestoga in the state, that are priced over $1,000,000. These are all luxury homes, with the majority of the highest priced homes being in Easttown. Easttown has always been considered the more expensive of the two townships, but there are locations in Tredyffrin that command multi-million dollar prices, such as lots on Valley Forge Mountain and close to Valley Forge National Park. This home in Tredyffrin is of more interest, and I think one of the more interesting homes currently for sale. There are not many properties remaining for sale today with the history and the land that this home has available for it's next b...

People often don't realize that their home can be a major part of their estate and they need to consider what will happen if and when they die to that part of their estate. Our local business association the Devon Berwyn Business and Professional Association had a very interesting presentation this week from Dennis McAndrews of McAndrews Law Offices. Dennis hit the top ten issues in Estate Planning, Estate Administration and Special Needs Trusts. As dry as this could be it definitely was not and I found lots of useful information was given by Dennis. If you are moving to the Main Line area outside of Philadelphia then you may want to have Dennis review your current wills as every state has different requirements for wills and how to execute and file them correctly. This is one reason wh...
