The Keystones are only slightly more expensive than the SEPTA Regional Rail trains too. You may be able to find something similar to what you are looking for, especially near Exton or (I'm guessing) a few miles outside of Paoli.
Great. That's really helpful. I know I want to go to the 30th street station, but I didn't know about the amtrak routes. I'll check those areas out.

Have you considered Newtown or Richboro PA? 30 minutes from center city - GREAT school system - nice communities, lots of "culdesac" neighborhoods you described.. Has a cute center of town, not a lot of fast food/strips malls.. Something to consider.
