This is true but the highest point, top of the hill seems to be the intersection of Hunter Lane and Farwood Rd which is in Delaware County by one block. That particular house was built in 1930 but there are lots of mid century modern in fill houses built in the'60's scattered around the neighborhood.

Hence, why I said a small portion is part of Delaware County/Haverford Township.

I would focus in on Brookhaven, small borough next to Aston, same school district, more affordable. Also look into Aston, there are some smaller ranches or capes in nice neighborhoods that are affordable.
I would search Media and surrounding as well for a possible good deal..

You can get a house in both Aston and Brookhaven (Penn-Delco School District) which start in the 150's for a twin or very small home. Two things you should know: neither area is diverse if that's important to you (primarily white) and Brookhaven is much more quiet and less congested than the much bigger and traffic-choked Aston.

I think the OP is looking to rent, though? There aren't many, if any, ranchers and capes in Brookhaven for rent. There may be some townhouses or condos for rent. Probably the same situation in Aston.
