Welcome to 691 Thomas Penn Drive, the best lot in all of the Big Elk 55+ community in West Grove, where you have open views from your backyard overlooking the Casa Carmen Vineyard, along with a grove of trees that further ensures your privacy. This is the first opportunity to purchase a resale home in this fully-sold-out Villa section of Big Elk, a new community that features stress-free living – never mow or clear snow again – and where you can enjoy a Community Center with full-kitchen for events, screen room, a fully-equipped gym and a gorgeous pool to relax in the warm, summer days. Better than new construction, many people do not realize that buying a new construction home requires a lot of further investment in window treatments, lights and fans, washer and dryer, refrigerator, decks or patios, painting etc. But here you can move right in as this 3 bed, 3 1/2 bath home that has true main floor living has had all the further investments made for you: master bedroom ensuite with oversized bath that features dual sinks and dual shower-heads, along with walk-in closet space and tray ceiling. The large kitchen, laundry room with W/D included, living and dining areas and sunroom round out the spacious main-floor living space. Upstairs you’ll find two additional large bedrooms that can serve as room for out-of-town guests and/or office space, along with a large full bath and plentiful storage. The oversized finished basement, with a full bathroom, that runs the length of the house provides sufficient room for anything you can imagine: Video room for entertaining, perhaps a pool table or additional office space, work out area or even a wine room. The unfinished portion housing the utility area and accessed by two sets of doors, provides ample storage space for off-season clothing, suitcases and seasonal decorative items. This home is full of upgrades: Plantation shutters, ceiling fans, security cameras and lights, upgraded cabinetry throughout, including drawers with soft-close finishes, luxury vinyl planking throughout the main floor, and perhaps the nicest touch of all – a newly constructed, screened-in deck, providing an excellent venue for enjoying your backyard view. There is also a pad for a hot tub. The Big Elk community is convenient to everything: Very near the Rt. 1 interchange and just 1 mile from the Jenners Village shopping center featuring a large Giant supermarket, a CVS, a Starbucks and 2SP microbrewery, along with several great eateries featuring cuisine from sushi to fajitas. The Christiana Care Micro Hospital, directly next door, is due to open next year. Attached to the hospital there are several medical offices already functioning, along with the large Penn Medicine of Southern Chester County facility approximately 2 miles away. The many parks in the area provide great areas for recreation – including the 4-legged members of the family. The Big Elk Community has a strong social network with men’s and ladies’ clubs that meet regularly, happy hours, a book club, and a Facebook page that provides easy communication with neighbors. Make your appointment today and make this house your new home.

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
