There is always plenty happening along the Main Line. In fact you can pretty much always find something to do, be it biking, hiking, eating, drinking or just flat out enjoying yourself. This weekend is no different.Saturday October 12th I want to highlight two events, both worth visiting, the first is the Havertalian festival in Havertown at Cardinal Foley School,300 E Eagle Road, from 12 pm to 7 pm rain or shine, check out their website for all the details on entertainers, food etc. Free admission but a $3 donation is asked. Havertalian Festival is a completely volunteer run event, and celebrates Italian culture, food, fmaily and community with a love for Italy thrown in as well.The other event is in Paoli and is the Upper Main Line Oktoberfest, run by the Upper Main Line Rotary, this ...

I wrote last week about how my open houses over the Saturday and Sunday had been so crowded at 822 Cottonwood Drive in Malvern. Well I am not sure if this market is causing all the hoopla at open houses or if it is the houses or my marketing.We once again had a beautiful Tredyffrin Easttown listing, 142 Woodgate Lane, Paoli PA 19301, pre marketing it through the week and going live in the MLS on Thursday morning. We rapidly had numerous appointments beginning at 9.00 am. We had our first offer later that morning.This weekend we planned a single open house for this Tredyffrin Easttown town home on Sunday from 1-3 pm. I had shoe covers lined up ready and waiting. And they came and came and came. We had about 60-70 people come throught the open house during the 2 hour window. At one stage ...

It is late at night, a small group of American soldiers having fought the British at Brandywine are camped in Paoli, sleeping. The rest of the American forces are at Valley Forge protecting the fords. Silently the British approach, and in the dead of night with bayonets fixed. With a roar, they storm the camp."Remember the Paoli Massacre" was a Revolutionary battle cry. But what really happened. Our video with Sean Moir of Western Heritage Mapping explains the situation a little more.History and historical homes are all around us in Tredyffrin Easttown. Today you can buy homes right where the Americans or British camped. We can help you find the right home, even if it is not historical but new construction.

Living on the Main Line outside of Philadelphia it is easy to overlook the history that lies all around us. Yes we live near Valley Forge National Historical Park but there were lots of other events in this area. I mean this is Philadelphia, the capital of the country in those days and where the constitution and bill of rights were released.Following the Battle of the Brandywine the Americans and the British came north. Washington withdrew across the Schuylkill to protect the fords and the way to Philadelphia. As well as protecting the furnaces where the Americans were making cannon.But he left a force under Wayne to watch the British on the Southern side of the Schuylkill. The British camped in Tredyffrin Township, near today's Chesterbrook, running from where Barnes and Noble is, what...

Another home sold in Valley Greene, Paoli, PA 19301We just sold this home in Valley Greene in Paoli, PA 19301. Valley Greene is a desirable community off North Valley Road in Paoli. It is a desirable move up community, with single family homes placed on larger lots in the award winning Tredyffrin Easttown School District, recently awarded top place as best school district in the nation by Niche rankings.These homes have varied in price depending on location within the community, some back up to high tension electrical wires, others are close to a private entrance to the Chester Valley Trail. Whilst the trail is a pleasant plus, you can also get road noise from Route 202 in that area. So, where you are in the community is important. Many homeowners are updating and adding extensions to t...

There are plenty of homes for sale that are labeled "Luxury Home" especially on the Main Line outside of Philadelphia, we have lots of them. Many are new or newer construction homes placed on lots where a home has been torn down usually a ranch, split level or a cape. Then we have some old Victorians in Wayne and beautiful homes in Gladwyne, Bryn Mawr and Villanova that are gorgeous luxury homes. But it is rare for a large estate to be for sale these days, however Reggie Hunt and Charlie Irwin of the Devon office of Long and Foster just listed a beautiful estate  for $4,800,000 with a Paoli address in Willistown Township one of the premier farms in Radnor Hunt on 37 acres. Currently operated as an artisanal farm with sheep and goats, it would also make a great location for horses. Whils...

I love to sit Open Houses especially this time of year when people are getting out and about to see homes that are on the market. I chose to sit this home at 160 Sheldrake Drive in Paoli, PA 19301 this Sunday from 2-4 PM. It was the model home for the development when it was first built 49 years ago, and this is the first time it has been on the market since then. Situated on a nice lot of 0.64 acres it has a nice presence in the neighborhood. It is a solid stone colonial, and I wrote about what is a colonial a few weeks ago, and this one is in excellent condition according to the listing agent, with deep window sills, hardwood floors, wood burning fireplace, built in book shelves and much more. I am looking forward to seeing the home. Taxes at $6483 last year are reasonable for this ar...

Looking for somewhere to eat in Paoli, Ashy's Burger and Fries is the place, owned by the same owners of the Kabab Cafe in Gateway Shopping Center this is a welcome addition and a step away from the chain burger and fries places. Burgers are made to order so leave some time for yourself as you will be waiting for your order, not long, but long enough for it to cook, and the fries - don't miss those, they are delicious. I actually steppped away from the traditional burger and went with a falaffel sandwich, well don't think this is a light option... I was struggling to finish and the fries are very generous portions. Enjoy next time you are in Paoli, right in the shops there close to the hardware store, you cannot miss it.

Paoli, PA yes we have the Starbucks, right by Paoli station, not sure what they will do when the station moves and becomes a transportation center, maybe they will move with it, but the biggest problem with Starbucks is lack of parking. However, a little way away, there is Saxby's, with plenty of parking and a nice atmosphere as well. The coffee shop is cozy with a fireplace, some arm chairs, wireless wi-fi, some tables and chairs in the front and back, you can also sit outside weather permitting. Located right on Lancaster Ave next to Bryn Mawr Trust and Jakes location is good for meeting people coming by car or train as it is a short walk from the station. Stop by sometime and have a cup of coffee or tea and take a few minutes to decompress from your day. Yes we have the new big Dunki...

For many years we have had a store front Dunkin Donuts in Paoli, just across from the station. Today I was driving through and saw this brand new Drive Thru store, right next door to a well known real estate brand. These two Dunkin Donut stores are only a quarter of a mile apart and I hope that the owner of this one is the same as the owner of the old store, have not had a chance to check on that before writing this. We seem to be having a proliferation of Dunkin Donuts along the Main Line, like banks they seem to be on every corner or in every gas station. Whilst America struggles with obesity there is a chance every few miles to break your good habit and have something sweet and high calorie be it Dunkin Donuts or another fast food chain always in a mega-size.

Paoli, site of the Paoli massacre during the revolutionary war, and a growing center for transportation. According to Septa Paoli station is the 5th busiest regional transportation center in the system. When you look at the station it is hard to believe and you realize why for the past several years there has been a plan to move the station to a new site further west and create a brand new Transportation Center. The current station looks like something out of a third world country rather than a station in the suburbs of one of America's larger cities. The parking lot here is tiny, in the morning, there are between five and eight jitneys lined up transporting commuters to local business centers and companies. You can see the station needs a little love and attention. You can catch Septa ...
