Newtown Township Real Estate
Homes in Newtown Township tend to be priced above the Delaware County average. The majority of homes in Newtown Township are single-family homes above $700,000 although a variety of home styles and prices are available. Most of these stately single-family homes are located on sizeable lots (nearly an acre or more) and within private, gated communities. Other single-family homes are tucked away on quiet, winding back roads.


Additionally, Newtown Square is a popular spot for builders and developers, and new construction is abundant. You can expect to see more and more luxury townhomes and gated communities with elegant single homes!


For something a bit more affordable, be sure to check out the more modest townhomes and condominiums. It’s also not uncommon to find a stately single-family home in need of a little TLC that is far under market value!
