This home is nestled between both Philadelphia and Wilmington.  There are also local benefits to the local Glen Mills/Garnet Valley area.  You’re just two minutes away from tax free shopping in Delaware.  Take advantage at shopping complexes and malls in Dover & Christiana.

There several locally owned restaurants, deli’s, and coffee shops.  Check out PureBread Deli.  They open at 6:30 AM daily, so stop in on your morning commute.  You won’t be disappointed with the food or service at this local pet friendly deli.  More of a tea person?  How about Specialteas Tea Room?  Stop in for morning or afternoon tea, or maybe both.

More nostalgic?  Just down the road you’ll find over 200 years of American History at the Sanderson Museum.  You can get a feel for some local & national  history in one stop.  Follow up the Sanderson Museum with a stop at the Brandywine Battlefield for an even more surreal peak into history.  Home to one of the many historic battles during the Revolutionary War.  For the more artistic mind, you can stop by the Arden Craft Shop Museum for a cup of local culture & history.  This Delaware Community has long celebrated its artistic endeavors, culinary sharing, and natural scenery.

And for those of you who just want to go out at night there’s several haunts for you to visit.  Stop by Famous Jack’s in Wilmington for your fair share of drinks and, well pictures of famous Jacks.  Another great spot is Two Stones Pub.  Stop in for some “craftbrew beer and food that does it right.”

There’s even few more ‘off the path’ options.  Can you cook Indian Cuisine?  You want to learn?  You can join Haneeda in her very own kitchen and learn the intricacies of cooking traditional Indian meals.  And lastly, but not least, stop by the Chaddsford Winery for some local vino.   They’re open all year.  They host a Harvest Fest in the Fall with a focus on Fire & Spice in the colder months.  Wine by fireside.  Sounds like a good time.

And hey let’s not forget the wonderful home for sale on 106 Cambridge Dr in Cambridge Downs, Glen Mills.  Stop by for a visit.

909 Green Lane

Screen Shot 2013-10-28 at 3.48.24 PM

The John Dempsey Realty Group presents an opportunity to own a great, big ‘ol home in Delaware County.  This home sits on a large, irregular lot. It has a pool house and an eight-feet deep in-ground pool.  For those of you unfamiliar with Green Lane, turning down the street from either Oak or Ashland Avenues is like going into another dimension; it feels like you’ve stumbled into the country. The best part is you’re still twenty minutes from Center City or just fifteen minutes from the sports complexes.   This home is in close proximity to local favorite restaurant Stingers.  Stingers offers a wide variety of foods like pasta, steak, seafood, and sandwiches.  And they have a large drink menu to boot.  If you just need a quick snack you can always drive down the street for one, or six, of Bernie’s Famous Pretzels.  When I go to Bernie’s I always get spicy mustard and a fountain root beer to go with my pretzels.  Back to the house!  Original hardwoods throughout.  One and half baths.  Three beds, with  potential for a fourth bedroom or a first floor office.  Full basement.  Do you like to host BBQ’s?  This is the perfect home.  Do you play football on Thanksgiving?  Sometimes have trouble securing a field?  Now it’s no longer an issue, you can host the games in your backyard from here on out.  (see pic below)
