If one phrase could describe today’s real estate market, it would be: “Time is of the essence.” With properties selling in record time and above asking prices, buyers have to move quickly lest they lose out on their dream home. Traditions of America at West Brandywine is one such example of a highly desirable community with a rapidly decreasing inventory. These desirable homesites are nearing a sellout, so anyone who is on the fence needs to make some quick decisions before it’s too late.
This elegant 55+ community is approximately an hour west of Philadelphia and 45 minutes north of Wilmington, DE, in Downingtown, PA. Considered to be a suburb of Philly, Downingtown is in Chester County’s Brandywine Valley. This part of the state is known for its more rural landscapes and destination-worthy main streets. Some of its most popular attractions include:
- Kennett Square
- Covered Bridges
- Longwood Gardens
- Valley Forge National Historical Park
- Brandywine Branch Distillery and Bistro
Closer to home, residents are a stone’s throw away from grocery stores, pharmacies, and stores like Target and Walmart. There are also three hospitals within a 20-minute radius: Brandywine Tower Health, Chester County Hospital, and Paoli Hospital. There are more indoor and outdoor recreation options, too—Traditions is also close to the SALT Performing Arts Center, Brandywine Square, and both Broad Run and Ingleside golf courses.
There are five base models offered, with prices starting in the upper $300s. Floor plans range from 1,536 to 2,981 square feet with two to three bedrooms and bathrooms and are customizable through Traditions of America’s DreamHome Program. The team of professional designers will work with buyers in the neighborhood’s Design Studio to determine the best elements to add, such as chef’s kitchens with granite countertops, dens, hardwood floors, luxury bathrooms and tray ceilings. Homeowners can also create a unique master bathroom, pick ceramic floors, or even request that a wall be moved.
Living in this exceptional active adult community means more leisure time than ever before. The monthly homeowners’ association (HOA) fee covers exterior and common area maintenance, lawn care, and snow removal, so there is no need to worry about any of that. The clubhouse has a state-of-the-art, 5-star resort-style design by KTGY Architecture and will be open 24/7. It also features an outdoor heated pool and patio with seating and a fire pit. Residents who are into sports can also play on pickleball, tennis, and bocce ball courts.
Additional amenities include comfortable indoor gathering rooms, a fitness center, and a sports bar and club room. Residents can meet up with friends, work out, or play games of darts and billiards. Some of the community’s group activities include yoga and Pilates, with more events to be announced. Neighbors on the shy side have no worries either. The community’s Lifestyle Director will be on hand to help homeowners with planning parties, wine tastings, classes, meetings and off-site excursions.
