Anyone in the market for new construction will want to jump on this opportunity! There are renderings and examples of what could be built, but the home isn’t complete just yet. Homebuyers who want to be involved in the home’s design or customize features have a chance to do so here. Plans call for stylish, one-level living that includes an inviting main foyer that leads into an open kitchen, dining area and family room. The home will be equipped with high-end finishes and details like floor-to-ceiling walls in order to maintain a bright, airy feel throughout. The amenity package at Meadows at Glenview Estates is also incredible and includes a park with pavilion, viewing terrace, swimming pool, playground and basketball court and walking trails.

Need an in-law suite or nanny’s quarters? How about a small rental property that will help you offset the cost of your mortgage? There are very few homes for sale in West Chester that come with a second unit already built-in, but I’ve found you one! Whoever uses this space will love the privacy it offers. The in-law suite has its own separate entrance, living room, bedroom and full bathroom. But you probably won’t be living in the rental unit, so let’s talk about the rest of the nearly 4,800 square foot house. This massive home was built in 2005. It’s in great condition but some of the features are a bit dated. All VERY easy fixes, though. Swap out the white appliances for stainless steel. Upgrade to granite countertops. Install modern light fixtures. Or don’t. The beauty of this move-in ready house is you can make those changes over time if and when you’re ready.


7786 Tylers Meadow Drive

List Price: $384,875 | $128 per sq. ft.

Size: 4 bed | 3.5 baths | 3,011 sq. ft.


42 cherry cabinets. FORTY-TWO! This stunning Transitional-style home has more storage space than you’ll know what to do with. The 1st floor master suite even comes with his and hers walk-in closets. But this West Chester home for sale offers a lot more than just storage. This home was clearly built with an acute attention to detail. Large windows and vaulted ceilings give the home a bright, grandiose feeling. The spa-like master bath includes a marbled, frameless shower and separate soaking tub, as well as separate vanities. The lower level at this West Chester property will be the envy of all your neighbors. It includes a full wet bar area and is currently used as a game room that includes a regulation-sized pool table, a poker table and its own living area perfect for watching Bengals games on the big screen. If you’re a West Chester homebuyer in the market for a drool-worthy man cave, this is the house for you.

As you peruse through real estate for sale in West Chester Township, you’re likely to find a lot of modern, traditional homes. Frankly, a lot of the homes feel the same. But not this house. This West Chester home for sale offers contemporary design that you won’t find elsewhere. The home was built in 1987 but was completely remodeled in 2016. Check out that sunken living room with vaulted, wood ceilings! You’ll love cozying up to that stonewalled wood fireplace on a cold West Chester night. The gorgeous kitchen includes new cabinets, quartz counters, recessed lighting and modern tile backsplash. Stainless steel appliances include double ovens and a separate cooktop. The property is in immaculate condition. There’s literally nothing left to do but move in!

Just down the street from the property above is a West Chester home that’s For Sale By Owner. There aren’t too many FSBOs on the market in West Chester Township, so I thought it would be fun to take a look at this one. This home sits on a 0.5 acre lot in the beautiful Indian Springs neighborhood. The home is set far back from the road and abuts the woods. This creates a pretty setting for the recently updated and stained back deck, but it is not ideal for homebuyers who want a back yard for children to play away from the street. The homeowner has recently invested in a number of upgrades inside, including new energy efficient entryway doors, two new gas fireplace inserts, new bathroom plumbing and hardwood floors. This house has been on the market for 278 days—much longer than the West Chester average, which begs the question of whether the owner is really that interested in selling. Just something to keep in mind as you look at West Chester real estate, particularly when properties are listed FSBO.


This quick rundown of homes for sale in West Chester Township, Ohio highlights just how far $400k can take you in today’s market. You can get a TON of house for that price. And at that price range, you can be picky about the home’s design and features.
