What’s the value of my Tredyffrin Easttown, Avonwood Single Family Home? Avonwood is a development in Tredyffrin Township at the intersection of Pugh and West Valley Roads, this neighborhood is also referred to as Avonwood so there is sometimes confusion when a home is listed as being in Avonwood whether it is in the neighborhood or the development. The address of course will be clear to any Tredyffrin Easttown Realtor who knows the area.  The following data is taken from the Trend, soon to be Bright  MLS for single family homes (private sales are not included in these statistics). The data is believed to be reliable at the time the report was published, but is not guaranteed. Avonwood In 2016 there were two sales in the Avonwood neighborhood and there is 1 active single family home lis...

Chesterbrook in Tredyffrin Township is a multi unit development including single family homes, town homes, apartments and condos. Divided into different sub-developments some town homes are held in condominium associations.

Chesterbrook PA is located in Tredyffrin Township in Chester County, although it has a Wayne, PA address. A mix of office space, shopping and single family, town homes and apartment living in different developments, it has stood the test of time remaining popular with buyers of all ages looking for a home close to the Main Line.   It has plenty of open space and connects to Valley Forge Park as well, with plenty of walking trails through out. Located just off Route 202, it provides easy access to the road system for commuters, with the PA Turnpike offering access from the new ramp for Easy Pass users at Route 29 and at the Valley Forge interchange located in King of Prussia it is obvious why it is so popular.   Chesterbrook Sales in 2013 for town homes and apartments are relatively eas...

In the past few weeks I have posted several blogs about the lack of inventory and how this is affecting the housing market and pace of homes going under agreement in our local Philadelphia Main Line Market and surrounding communities. Chesterbrook is one of those communities being about 30 years old and well located in Tredyffrin Township it has single family homes, townhomes and apartments. Chesterbrook homes carry a Wayne address although as stated they are in Tredyffrin Township and part of the Tredyffrin Easttown School District. Recently the townhomes have been selling at a very fast clip, with many homes going under contract within a week of being listed. That pace has not diminished and the only homes lingering on the market are those that are maybe a little strong in price or th...

I recently had to clear out an apartment for a client, in amidst all the furniture and clothing, was a medicine cabinet packed with old medicines, some were prescription pain killers and other drugs. I did not want these to get into the hands of kids, or into the water system. I thought I could just take them to any pharmacy and they would know how to dispose of them correctly. I was wrong; in Chester county there are only a few places where you can take drugs for disposal, I ended up taking them to Phoenixville. But I noticed today when I was in the Tredyfrin Township building, located in Chesterbrook at 1100 Duportail Road, that Tredyffrin Township have installed a drop box for old and unwanted medicines. One of the ways kids get their hands on drugs is going through the medicine cabi...
