Houses are on the expensive side around here since it's a nice area, but the houses are mostly very nice. There's lots of old Victorian-era and colonial houses (e.g. my family's house is from the 1880s) and they tend to be well-kept. Places like Wayne are nice. Chesterbrook is a big area to live and it's nice little townhouses (apparently expensive considering their size) but I prefer where I live, on the edge of Malvern toward Paoli. There's a wealthy nieghborhood down the street from us but on my street it's just single houses with big yards that are fairly spaced out. I only know of 1 abandoned house--there were 2 originally, but one got torn down since nobody had any interest in it (the inside was set up oddly).
