Hi John, yes, the Septa R6 Line takes you to Suburban Station in just 19 minutes.
I am familiar with this home and some similar homes nearby having just helped a family in this price range and in this neighborhood.
If you are not already working with a Realtor, I would welcome the opportunity to chat.
I can already think of a couple homes I want to show you!

Dr. Stephen, unlike the warmer climates of California, we do in fact have a seasonal slowdown every time it gets cold. As a REALTOR, as well as an investor, I find my best shopping always happens in the winter. There are always fewer buyers, and owners get anxious because activity slows down.
This of course, always means you have better negotiating terms when it is times to purchase. The only negative is that there is usually far more inventory in the spring/summer market.
If you are lookiing for a good bargain, then I would say winter is your best bet. If you want best selection, then March to July would be the best time to search.
If you have any questions about where the best place to find a home in Philadelphia or the Main Line, feel free to let me know.
Best of luck!... more

Single family homes normally bring you the biggest return on your investment. However, depending on the main factors, price, location, desirability and demand, that is really the only way to figure out which is best to buy. People love to live in Conshy since taxes are lower in certain areas and you are just close enough to the city but also far enough away. With a single you have no association to worry about. You own it all, not just the "air" within the walls. You have to be careful, there are some pretty tight restrictions for some condo associations. You need to have someone do some further research to actually come to a conclusion.... more
One thing to keep in mind is that Manayunk is still in Philadelphia and Bala Cynwyd is outside of Philadelphia in Montgomery County. Therefore, if you work inside of Philadelphia, you will pay a higher tax rate in Manayunk and a lower tax rate in Bala Cynwyd, essentially giving yourself a slight raise by living outside of the city.
New tax rate: As of January 2008 the Philadelphia resident rate will be 4.219% and the non-resident rate will be 3.7242%." - see web reference
Manayunk appears to be the more "hip" area to live, with many young professionals just out of college - as a recent college graduate, almost everyone I know who moved to Philly took residence in Manayunk.
Bala Cynwyd, although close to St. Joe's, is a more family oriented area. You're at the edge of the main line, and as you travel down Rt 30 into Montgomery County, you venture more into suburbia. Depending upon the part of Bala Cynwyd, you're bordering what is typically viewed as a less safe part of Philadelphia, with City Line Ave separating Bala Cynwyd from Philly. However, a few miles west and you're in the heart of the main line - Narberth, Wynnewood, Ardmore, Haverford, Bryn Mawr, Wayne, etc.... more
