If you work in King of Prussia, where can you live that is not a far commute and has:

Excellent schools (not just good)
Safe neighborhood with suburban feel (not rural at all)
Good shopping (wegmans, whole foods, mall etc. within 20 minutes)

For a single family house price of $425,000

Don't forget Broomall and Newtown Square. Marple school district is terrific and the area is VERY family oriented.

Good luck!

Radnor is good area. If I were you Id drive down Lancaster Ave (RT 30) (Exit 13 off of blue route) Route 30 goes from KOP down to St Joes pretty much. Nice neighborhoods towards KOP,paoli,devon,etc.

-Media is a nice neighborhood too. About 20minutes from KOP.
-I live in boothwyn about 30 minute drive to RT 30 to bryn mawr in the AM.

Lower Merion is a safe/nice place

Gladwyn if you have lots of money and want a butler :-) Everyone is Gladwyn drives a benz or a lexus And the occasionally BMW

Chesterbrook is also very nice in the TE school district and they have very low taxes. However, it is mostly townhomes.
