Willistown Knoll, Willistown Woods, and You

Sometimes the best location is just down the road a bit, but you just didn’t notice it.   Willistown Knoll, Willistown Woods, and Worington Commons are centrally located but still provide the feel and immediate access of Chester County and Delaware County country living.  

These back to back communities located in the southwest corner of Willistown Township offer an incredibly convenient location.  They are adjacent to the West Chester Pike  just west of its intersection with Route 926 along the Delaware County / Chester County border. Willistown Woods Willistown Township Pennsylvania This location in southwest Willistown Township provides direct access to West Chester just minutes to the west, to Delaware via Route 926/Street Rd and then 202 south, Southern Delaware County and Media by Route 352, and to Newtown Square, the Blue Route, and all points east on West Chester Pike.

Willistown Woods was the original development built in the early 80’s with over 200 units.  These townhomes located off West Chester Pike have always been a popular option.  Pricing is very reasonable and prices have drifted down recently making them even more affordable.  Eight units sold in 2008 for an average sold price of $253,000.  This was down about 6% from the average in 2007 and over 8% from their peak.  There are currently two units on the market starting at $242,000.

All three communties offer a great opportunity to own a home that is within easy commuting distance of most of the major population and work centers in the region while still retaining some of the original Chester County country feel that surrounded them when they were originally built.  They remain a great choice.
