Each year I like to take a look at the area to see what $1,000,000 can buy you in Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs. Here’s what I found…
In Philadelphia, $1MM can get you this stylish, luxury Contemporary in Chestnut Hill with 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths and 4,336 SqFt of living space. It also gets you a location on corner of Germantown Avenue, not very private.
The search in Bucks County takes us to Buckingham Township, where for $1MM you can have this 5,364SqFt Colonial with 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, an in-ground pool, 3 car garage, finished walk-out basement on 2.39 acres. Not bad!
The million dollar offerings in Delaware County took us to Haverford Township. There, a cool million can get you this 100-year-old stone residence designed by Fred Bissinger. It features 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, with 2,597SqFt of living space and an in-ground pool.
In Montgomery County a $1MM can get you into this nice stone Cape situated on 2.24 acres on the Main Line, in Gladwyne. The house boasts 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths and approximately 4,369SF of living space. You also get a three car detached garage and access to the award-winning Lower Merion schools.
Chester County, offers the most bang for the buck by far! If you want a little fixer upper you can grab this place in Chadds Ford, a 231 year old farmhouse on 14.9 acres that includes barns, stone walls, a pool and pond. The main house had 4,539SF, 6 bedrooms and 4.5 baths. There is also a 3 bedroom 2 bath guest house. If you happen to have an additional $1.85MM laying around you can also buy the adjacent 56 acre parcel for a little more privacy!
