Downingtown PA Real Estate For Sale: 258 Lenora Ln

by Scott Darling

Do you have a large family or need lots of bedrooms? Well look no further. 258 Lenora Lane in the Award-Winning Downingtown School District is just the place. With 6 full bedrooms and 4 and a half baths AND… a full finished basement, this is just the place you’ve been looking for. Enter this Doutrich built home thru the traditional two-story center hall foyer. You’ll immediately notice the beautiful hardwood floors as they carry thru the formal living room, dining room and eat in kitchen. The family room features a wonderful stone fireplace, beautifully crafted built-ins, recessed lighting and pocket doors. The Paradise Kitchen gleams with its cherry cabinets and breakfast bar. There is also a large first floor study, powder room and laundry room that complete this level. Upstairs is the large master bedroom with a private bath (marble floors, whirlpool tub and separate shower) and 5 (yes 5) additional good sized bedrooms and 2 additional full bathrooms. (Think Nanny, Au-Paire, In-law) The 4th full bath is located in the daylight finished basement that includes a theatre area, a beautiful bar and a very large storage room. There’s also a walkout to the very flat 1.9-acre yard. The current owners with their 5 kids are sad to have to move and just hope another large family can enjoy this home as much as they have.

Media PA Real Estate For Sale: 481 Farnum Rd

by Scott Darling

Set off of Farnum Road in a private village like setting cul-de-sac, this home has so much to offer. Let’s start with the convenient walk into town location. Or maybe a quick walk to Cherry Street Park. Or a quick zip to the train, the Blue Route or Rose Tree Park for a picturesque walk or take in an outdoor concert. WOW! We haven’t even talked about the house yet. This home was totally renovated just a few short years ago. Some of the lovely features about this home are the updated eat-in kitchen with granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances. There’s even a fireplace in the kitchen. The family room is large, open and bright and has exposed beams and radiant heat in the floors. No more chilly toes while watching your favorite movie. The first-floor master bedroom with its updated master bath includes a beautiful ceramic tile shower with dual heads including a rain head…Ahhh. The dining room is just off the kitchen and has a door that leads out to the multi tiered deck, a great place to sit and relax overlooking the level and spacious yard. There is also a second bedroom and another full bath on the main floor and upstairs there’s 2 bedrooms, a full bathroom and a small office or craft room. Each of the bedrooms includes a ceiling fan as well. There are 2 zones for heating and air conditioning so you can “tune in” your desired temperature. This private yet convenient location also includes a security system. Media is the place to be, so come quick. As they say, “Media, Everybody’s Hometown”.

Items to Throw Out Before You Move

by Scott Darling

Although moving from an old house into a new house can be an exciting time it can also be a very stressful time for those folks who don’t like to throw anything out.  Don’t worry you can keep most of your items but there are a few that should most definitely be thrown out before you move and those are listed for you below.   

 

  1. 1. If you have a lot of old towels and rags lying around your house, whether you use them or not, you might want to get rid of those before you move  into another home.  These types of things can carry bacteria on them and you don’t want to start out in your new place with dirty items when you can purchase new ones once you arrive.   

  2.  

  1. 2. Make-up is good to have but it does have a shelf life and once that has passed it isn’t really good to keep it around.  Avoid the compulsion to throw all of your old makeup into a box and take it with you.  Although you might perhaps use it once or twice there really is no need for it because it won’t look as nice as a new pallet of makeup.  

  2.  

  1. 3. Soaps, deodorants, nail polish,  and sunscreen maybe things you use on a regular basis but you really don’t need to take up space in your moving boxes for these types of items.  These things don’t cost a lot of money and can easily be purchased anywhere.  

  2.  

  1. 4. Once you start packing and you find a ton of USB cables, realize that you don’t need them all and get rid of a few of them.   You may have a friend in need of a USB cable that you can bless with one or two.   

  2.  

  1. 5. Don’t pack paperwork unless it is absolutely necessary.  Of course you will have to keep important contracts and tax information but most of the paperwork you’ve collected over the years is likely now obsolete and can be thrown out before you head out.   

  2.  

  1. 6. Last but not least, go ahead and let go of all of the clothes you can no longer fit into.  Donating these types of items can many times be a big blessing to others.   

  2.  

These are just a few ideas of things you might want to get rid of before you move.  By doing this you will avoid having to unpack all sorts of unnecessary items and will save yourself a ton of time in the process.
