Philadelphia, PA, June 01, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- CNBC called it one of the recession-proof areas of the country, and that's one of the reasons that 209 Meeting House Lane in Merion Station, Pennsylvania is generating so much attention on Philadelphia's Main Line.
Built in the late 1800s, this gorgeous farm home has been completely renovated and upgraded with Viking, Bosch, and Sub Zero appliances. It features 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a full basement, and is just a quick walk to "A" rated Cynwyd Elementary and Bala-Cynwyd Middle Schools. The Lower Merion School District is ranked one of the best in the United States.
"Homes like this just don't hit the market with any frequency," said one Real Estate professional. "It is rare to find a completely renovated home in this part of the Main Line that is move-in ready. There are so many homes that need hundreds of thousands of dollars of work. This home, at 209 Meeting House Lane, needs no work, and feels like it was custom built within the last year."
The house has a rich history. In the 1800s and early 1900s, the area was home to the famed Belmont Motor Park -- where early car enthusiasts shared and showed their vehicles. Now, it's home to lush parks, cute stores, and family friendly neighborhoods.
"This is an amazing home and neighborhood," said the Real Estate professional. "You're a 15 minute drive or train ride to Center City Philadelphia, yet you feel like you're in the heart of the country."
The home, at 209 Meeting House Lane in Merion Station, is walking distance to Septa's R5 and R6 regional rail lines. It is listed at $839,000.
