I have been selling real estate since 2004 and lived in this area since 1990. I always knew Chesterbrook was a popular place to live, but it was not till last year that I fully appreciated some of those reasons.When the pandemic hit our area, we were all told to stay at home, not to travel anywhere. I have always been a walker, more so the last few years and this being stuck indoors was very hard.I moved to Chesterbrook in 2019, living on Valley Stream Lane and from there had discovered a path along Valley Creek that took me underneath the Pennsylvania Turnpike right into the heart of Valley Forge Park. This allowed me to walk, to see nature and feel normal and get some much needed exercise too.  I took many photos of the park during this past year, of a beaver which surprised me, of bl...

Yesterday, my girl friend and I went antiquing in Lancaster County. The area got hit by the storm moving up the East coast and so we got pretty wet, being in and out of the car.  We had headed out on Tuesday evening, stayed overnight in Lancaster, had a nice dinner on the main square there and set off to Columbia in the morning to start our hunt.  Whilst we were strolling through one combined dealer shop I came across this lovely old wheelbarrow. I did not see the makers mark initially which is below. I loved the old paint, the strawberry leaf stencil on the side and the eight prong iron wheel. The sides lift off as well, so you can balance larger items on the floor of the barrow. I have seen these before and they make great pieces for people to use filled with flowers, or possibly some...

At the Open House on Saturday we saw people lined up across the development parking lot, to the other side of the garage which went with this condo. Not many of these apartments have garages, and they are scattered around the development, often meaning your garage if you have one can be a long way away. This unit, has the garage just steps from the condo front door.Every body stood six feet apart and waited patiently for their turn to tour the ground floor condo with three beds, two full baths a nd a wonderful updated kitchen. The patio faces west, away from the nearby turnpike and the setting sun, so it is quiet and a premium location in this development. We had multiple back to back showings all day Thursday when it went live in the MLS and yesterday morning had received 7 offers. The...

Our new listing in Chesterbrook at 315 Valley Stream Lane, Wayne PA 19087 goes live in the MLS today. We already have multiple appointments lined up for today, an Open House is planned for Saturday from 1-4 pm and I don't think this 3 bed, 2 bath condo is going to last long, especially as it has the added benefit of a single car detached garage, a west facing patio to enjoy the lingering rays of the sun as it dips below the horizon along with a wonderful kitchen as well. Take a tour, virtually with our video, and stop by on Saturday or contact me for a tour, but don't wait long as I think this will be gone pretty quickly.    Contact Nick Vandekar, Selling The Main Line with Long and Foster Real Estate Inc., office 610-225-7400, cell or text 610-203-454, email Nick@VandekarTeam.com for a...

I recently decided to get a chair in my home recovered, I inherited it from my parents, it is a wing back chair. Although it looks old I knew from stories it was made in the early 20th century. Growing up, I used to stand in this chair behind my dad and comb his hair for him. Sure he was thrilled, I wonder if that was why he had a bald patch. In those days it had a green covering, so they must have recovered it some time back to have this red silk design. Time and my cats had caused lots of wear and I wanted to update it as well now I am on my own. I called a friend Deb Bettcher who is an interior designer with Decorating Den Interiors and asked for some help. I saved on Pinterest a board of wing back chairs with designs I liked and shared that with her to give her an idea of my taste. ...

Last night I attened the Tredyffrin Township Summer Concert Series, Flower Power was playing.Playing in Wilson Farm Park on the stage there, they provided two hours of solid entertainment. People were socially distanced, and wearing masks when walking about. Lots of people got up and danced over the course of the evening.  Thanks were read out for the many sponsors who made the evening possible. There were probably about 150-200 people present, other people were using the park for sports practice, a little exercise. The township had plenty of signs about social distancing, and had marked out zones for those sitting on the grass. All in all well organized. There was an ice cream truck, very welcome with the hot evening.Next week Chico's Vibe a well known and loved local band will be play...

When I chose to live in Chesterbrook last year I knew access to Valley Forge Park was a big reason why I chose this location. Easy access from my front door to walk in nature. I literally step out my door and start walking along Valley Creek. Almost every day this walk offers me something wonderful to be grateful for seeing.Last night, as we were returning, I see something swimming in the creek, then realize it is a beaver. I have never seen a beaver other than at the zoo before and definitely not in this area. It was just swimming up the creek, past a fisherman, and then stopped for a little snack on some grasses by the creek. Made my evening. Around the next bend were four young deer, who rather than running away stepped closer as if to say hello. I have seen Eagles, mink, foxes, turk...

   Unfortunately, I seem to have deleted the photo I took of the house when we first looked at it. But it is a center hall colonial, spread over three floors with a Pennsylvania stone front and PA Blue Stone pavers to the front door and rear patio.  The home has 6 bedrooms, 4 full baths and 2 powder rooms, with a flagstone patio to the rear of the house. Kitchen is a chef's delight, with a central island with seating for when everyone congregates at parties. What really grabbed my clients was the wonderful family room off the kitchen, and a larger office space for when they work at home. Also the neighborhood already has some friends within it for them and their son.

I can walk into Valley Forge National Park from where I live, there are multiple trails I can use. I have always loved this place ever since we moved here from the UK, even if it is a symbol of the Revolution against the King of England. I love the wide open spaces, but I have come to love all the different trails, the wildlife and the views. Hope you enjoy my video as much as I enjoy the park.

I am extremely lucky as I just helped these clients find a new home and as a result am getting to list this most beautiful open plan home in Berwyn, at 280 Dayleview Road. Tucked away in a very quiet location this home has it all. Renovated completely in 2016/2017, it is everything a buyer is looking for. The current owners added some wonderful finishing touches including the most amazing back yard landscaping, including a natural retaining wall, and large patio with fire pit, yet still leaving room for kids to play.Check out the virtual tour showcasing the landscaping and lighting installed, but at the same time revealing the natural light that floods this Berwyn, Tredyffrin Easttown School district home.Containing 5 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths, one en suite in the master bedroom, which a...

Walking down Mount Misery in Valley Forge Park this morning. Looking down between the trees the rising sun glinted off the water in the creek below as it flowed to and beneath the old covered bridge.The hues of the colours on display were magnificent, greens, golds, yellow, oranges, reds, greys and browns and let's not forget the azure blue sky.Truly a moment to connect with nature and realize the beauty that is all around us.Have a great day, and get out into nature, you will be better for it.
