Clifton Aldan SEPTA R3 Regional Rail Station Clifton Heights PA

Clifton Aldan R3 Regional Rail Station Clifton Heights PA Welcome to Clifton Heights PA .

Clifton Heights Borough Pennsylvania is one of the smaller boroughs in Delaware County but is an important road, train, trolley, and bus crossroads and is well served by SEPTA . The borough itself is centered on the intersection of Baltimore Ave (Baltimore Pike as you travel west) and Springfield Rd which both carry heavily traveled bus lines. The 102 Trolley travels basically north to south through the borough on its way from the 69th Street Terminal to its end in Sharon Hill PA. The R3 Regional Rail Line runs along its southern border with Aldan generally from east to west.

The SEPTA R3 Regional Rail Line station is located at the intersection of the R3 Rail Line and the 102 Trolley at the Rail Line's overpass at Springfield Rd. The original station is on the south/Aldan side and it has a shed on the Clifton Heights side of the platform. There are good size parking lots located on both sides of the track affording plenty of space on each side for dropping off/picking up passengers. The station is within easy walking distance of many homes and businesses in both boroughs. The video should give you a better feel for the area:

 

Although prices have pulled back somewhat, the real estate market has remained very active. From an average sales price of less than $100,000 in 2003, prices rose quickly to peak at an average of $143,000 in 2007. Activity actually spiked to 128 transactions in 2004 and has drifted down since then to 125 sales in 2005, 111 in 2006, 96 in 2007, and 64 in 2008. In 2009 we have already seen 24 settlements at an average price of $124,000 with an additional 13 properties pending ($142,000 average price) and 37 homes now available on the market at an average $158,000 list price. Considering the the higher average pending price at this time, the average sales prices could be heading a bit higher.

The Clifton Aldan Station is a great commuter station with good access to the rail, trolley, and bus lines. It also has good parking and is within easy walking distance to many residential and commercial areas.  If you are looking for good transportation to or from the area, this could be a great option to consider.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact me for any additional details.
