Single Family Homes

Homes range in price from the high $300's to more than $5M. There are few properties with less than 3 bedrooms and 2 baths or with under 2500 sq ft of living space. As stated above, more of the higher end homes are north of route 30 but this is less pronounced than in towns to the east such as Bryn Mawr, Haverford and Ardmore.

New Construction

As stated over and over again on this site, there is little new construction on the Main Line due to the lack of building lots. In Villanova's case, less than 5% of sales in 2014 were new properties. There were 2 new homes at Wrenfield on Canterbury Ln that sold in 2014 and another on Hillside Circle.
