The Brinton Estates at Cherry Creek set the standard for a single family Conservation Community in Thornbury Township Delaware County PA.
Cherry Creek is a large newer home community just east of Route 202/ Wilmington Pike off Dilworthtown Rd in Thornbury Township Delaware County PA. Dilworthtown Rd is just about 2 miles north the intesection of Route 1 with Route 202. This location affords easy access up Route 202 to West Chester and King of Prussia, south on 202 to Delaware, and east/west on Route 1 into Chester County or Media and all of Delaware County.
Cherry Creek was developed by three local builders as a conservation community meeting the standards developed by the Brandywine Conservancy. This development will provide for the protection of over 80 acres of open space in the community adding to the land already preserved throughout the Brandywine Valley under their leadership. With a history dating back to 1687, the property has been under the continuous ownership of the Brinton and Cherry Families with the original 1812 Brinton Family Home still preserved on the Cherry Creek grounds.
The Cherry Creek neighborhood encompasses both luxurious townhomes and gracious single family properties. The 120 single family home sites of The Brinton Estates at Cherry Creek were built by both Dewey Homes and Thompson Home Builders. Both award winning companies have a long history in the region of building finely crafted quality homes.
The original Cherry Creek floorplans included 8 basic designs with over 30 different styles available. The floor plans included models ranging from just over 3,000 sq ft to well over 5000 sq ft with pricing starting in the low $500,000s. This variety allowed the original buyers ample opportunity to customize their purchase to meet their exacting requirements. Homesites generally ranged from 0.31 to over 0.50 acres. All properties included many upgrades and finishes including Kohler fixtures and GE appliances.
Since being built prices have remained fairly stable despite the economy. The original homes were sold for prices ranging from $502,000 to over $1,000,000. The site was built out between 2003 and 2006 with average yearly sales prices climbing form $683,000 to $788,000 during this period. Since then prices have moderated with 6 sales for $735,000 in 2007, 2 sales in 2008 averaging $762,000, and 4 sales in 2009 averaging $648,000. Currently there is one sale pending for $724,000 and 2 homes on the market asking $749,000.
With its quality construction, prime location, and well thought out designs, the Brinton Estate at Cherry Creek should continue to be a strong housing choice for years to come.
