My husband and I are looking for a nice area where he can commute to his job on city line ave. We like the main line, but fear it is all older families and empty nesters, as well as not being as accepting to newcomers. We would like to live in an area where we might find other people on our block in their lower thirties who have young children. We both went to school at Villanova and are excited about the prospect of returning to the area but would like to make sure we live in a more family friendly neighborhood than the one we live in now in Long Island.

Would areas such as K of P, Blue Bell, Lansdale, Whitemarsh or Flourtown fit the bill here? We are not against new construction and are willing to go up to 550K. Any thoughts you have would be appreciated. Thanks!

Those areas woulld be fine, but I would also suggest you look in Narberth or Ardmore on the main line. There are younger families living in those sections.

KOP is a part of Upper Merion which was mainly developed in the 60's-70's. Same goes with the majority of Whitemarsh-Flourtown(although you will find pockets of newer housing in these places). They are older residential areas on the whole.

Blue Bell-Gwenydd valley-Oaks-North wales-would fit your bill.

Id also consider looking around West Chester and its
surrounding area -East Goshen-westtown-Thornbury-Birmingham Twp.-Chadds Ford-Garnet Valley are all newer upscale communities.

Exton-Chester Springs is also a pleasant newer growing area which would be highly recommended if you dont mind a little bit of a commute to City Line..

Good luck.
