This 2 bedroom, 1 bath, first floor condo for sale in the Society Place section of Newtown Grant just lowered it's asking price to $169,900.  The lowest price a 2 bedroom condo has sold for this year in Society Place & Newtown Grant is $192,500 so this is a steal considering the A/C was replaced in 2010, the water heater was replaced in 2006.  If you'd like to schedule an appointment to check this place, or any other condo or townhome out in Newtown Grant just give me a call.  3003 Society Place                     Society Place is the condiminium section of Newtown Grant, in Newtown Township and is best accessed off of North Dr.  There are approximately 400 condos consisting of 2 bedroom 1 bath and 2 bedroom 2 bath condos between approximately 970 sq. ft. and 1200 sq. ft. some includin...

Karaoke Anyone?   It isn't always easy to find a nice place to dine that offers Karaoke, but every Thursday and Saturday night at the Clubhouse Bar and Grill of Newtown, you can find just that. With excellent food and people, The Clubhouse Bar and Grill makes for a great singing environment (even if you can’t hit the high notes)! I have it on good authority that many of the actors and actresses who perform in Bucks County community theater productions enjoy the Karaoke atmosphere at The Clubhouse Bar and Grill. That should raise the bar for the Karaoke talent and promises some very entertaining evenings.     Not a Karaoke person, and/or Thursday or Saturday not your free night? That’s okay, The Clubhouse Bar and Grill offers a full calendar of events to round out the week. On Monday eve...

This week in Newtown, PA's Brookside community a great deal came on the market as an REO Sale. 26 Heather Ct. is a bank owned property being offered for $169,900.  I previewed the home when it was listed as a short sale at $189,000 & it needs some work, but the comparable sales in this section of Brookside are as high as $205,000 and that property had a dated kitchen.  This is a great opportunity for an investor, or a homeowner to get into a neighborhood walking distance to Newtown Borough and earn some sweat equity.  It's even a great option for an FHA203k Loan where you can get a loan to improve the home before you move in. Brookside is a neighborhood comprised of single family homes and townhomes built in the mid to late 1980's just outside of Newtown Borough in Newtown Township.  It...

In four days, more than 400 budding young actors from high schools in Pennsylvania and New Jersey have presented comedies, drama, and selections from the classic musical theater repertoire to a peer audience and a panel of three adjudicators.
