Golf View Estates - 55 Plus - Springfield, Delaware County, PA

Golf View Estates is a 55+ Community in Springfield, Delaware County, PA. 

Golf View EstatesGolf View as it is referred to, is nestled between the Springfield Mall, Smedley Park, the Springfield Healthplex/Medical Center and the Springfield Country Club (thus the name - Golf View).  It is located just off of Sproul Road down from Baltimore Pike.  Golf View was formerly known as The Villas at Golf View.

Golf View is comprised of townhouses that are located on roads with names such as Coutnry Club Drive, Palmer Drive, Nichlaus Drive and Trevino Green. 

There are approximately 215 townhomes that were built by McKee Builders starting in 1989 and finished in 1999. The units range in size from 2 bedroom units to 3 bedroom units with 2+ bathrooms, complete with gas heat and gas cooking, garages with ample parking, and green space.  Most units are one level living. Some have basements.  Washer and dryers are in every home.  Some units have 2 car garages while others have one car garages. Most offer access to the inside of the house from the garage which is great during inclement weather. 

The monthly association fee ensures the roads are clear all year long, the common areas are maintained, thus giving a more carefree style of living to those who live here.

Golf View Estates In SpringGolf view is very close to major highways like 476 and I-95 which offers ease of traveling south to Delaware and north to Philadelphia. The Philadelphia Airport is roughly 8 miles north.  It is roughly 2 hours north by car to New York City and Washington DC. Atlantic City is roughly 1.5 hours away eastward, with Lancaster County and the Amish Country roughly one hour to the west.

Public Transportation is also very close with a trolley line and a bus line close to the Springfield Mall.  Swarthmore and the county seat of Media are both a very short distance away, offering retail stores, theater and cultural events throughout the year. The surrounding areas have many fine eateries, many located in Media and one restaurant at the Springfield Country Club just up the road.  Two active local theaters are the Media Theater and Hedgerow Theater in Rose Valley (one of the longest running repertory theaters in the country).

As mentioned there is a Healthplex very close to Golf View.  It is part of the Springfield Hospital complex and it offers fitness classes along with a swimming pool.

For those of you who are golfers, the Springfield Country Club is very close, but note that there are other golf courses in Delaware County such as Strathaven Club, Paxon Hollow, Merion Golf Club and Waynesborough Country Club.  The latter two both having the honor of hosting the US Open in the past. 

Delaware County has walking trails. Some can be found in Ridley Creek State Park, Tyler Arboretum and the newly opened Chester Creek Trail not far from Linvilla Orchards on the outskirts of Media.

The over 55+ community here is pricey. I had one brand new never moved in. The son transferred to London so mom (55++) moved with him. The next 2 months I could not find a buyer. At 1.25M it was not cheap for senior citizens.  I took it off the market. Even mobile home in the country costs 350K dbl wide with $750 monthly fee.
