Collegeville, Royersford, Upper Merion, there are several spots and even in Chester County a little further out you get a little bang for your buck.
Best advice is to do some serious investigating on the top schools in PA and the ones that are helpful.
Media, Swathmore DE county are also another great areas to be. I have a copy somewhere of the top 100 school districts if that helps.
There was an excellent article this week on Philly.com about Narberth, PA. - I think Narberth might be just what you are looking for. I raised my children there arriving as a transplant and still count many of our neighbors amoung my friends, and my children were very happy. Its also only 15 minutes to center city on the septa line, and has a little downtown of its own. You may not find a newer property but you will find many wonderful properties.Please let me know if you have any questions, I will be happy to help in any way I can. Welcome!
