'Silver Linings Playbook' Real Estate: Homes for Ballroom Dancing and Garbage-Bag Workouts

View as Map



The sun is shining a little more brightly on Delaware County since a slew of Oscar nominations—not to mention Jennifer Lawrence's Golden Globe—were announced for the Delco-set Silver Linings Playbook, based on the book by Matthew Quick. For those looking to capitalize on 610's new cachet, the homes on our Silver Linings Playbook Real Estate Map look an awful lot like the ones Bradley Cooper ran past while wearing a Hefty bag in the movie. A few of them are even within walking distance of the Llanerch Diner, another Silver Linings star—and a great spot for deadly disco fries.

1. 3BR/3BA for $220,000

Copy Link
211 West Dupont Avenue
Ridley Park, PA 19078

This immaculate three-bedroom Dutch Colonial with 1,388 square feet looks like it was built for autumn light. The enclosed porch more than makes up for the overzealous application of dark wood paneling in the kitchen.

2. 4BR/3BA for $245,000

Copy Link
503 Crum Lynne Road
Ridley Park, PA 19078

With four bedrooms and three full bathrooms, this 1,800-square-foot Cape Cod offers a lot of space, including a first-floor master suite. The jacuzzi tub in the master bath seems designed to distract from the chaos of the wallpaper.

3. 3BR/1BA for $170,000

Copy Link
425 Deakyne Avenue
Ridley Park, PA 19078

Previous owners seem to have had an unfortunate affinity for robin's egg blue and the kitchen could use an update, but this home offers a lovely fireplace and porch along with three bedrooms and two baths.

4. 3BR/2BA for $189,900

Copy Link
413 Cresswell Street
Ridley Park, PA 19078

Somewhere in Ridley Park there was a massive sale on neon interior paint. Most of it wound up on Cresswell Street, in this three-bedroom, two-bath Colonial. The adorable breakfast nook almost makes up for it.

5. 3BR/2BA for $139,900

Copy Link
604 Thayer Street
Ridley Park, PA 19078

This foreclosed three-bedroom, two-bath Victorian needs a lot of touching up (most of all, it needs to be painted by someone who understands color theory), but is an absolute steal with a great back yard and wrap-around porch.

6. 3BR/2BA for $125,000

Copy Link
315 South Madison Avenue
Upper Darby, PA 19082

Situated on the exact street where Silver Linings Playbook was filmed, this three-bedroom, two-bath Colonial needs all the buzz it can get. The realtor promises wood floors under the wall-to-wall carpeting, which would be a major upgrade.

7. 5BR/2.25BA for $224,900

Copy Link
18 North Kirklyn Avenue
Upper Darby, PA 19082

A stone's throw from the Llanerch Diner, this five-bedroom Dutch Colonial lists two full bathrooms and another "quarter" bath in the basement. With any luck, the in-ground swimming pool out back will make up for whatever a quarter bathroom looks like.

8. 3BR/2BA for $165,000

Copy Link
39 North Linden Avenue
Upper Darby, PA 19082

This three-bedroom, two-bath Colonial offers lots of built-in shelving and an updated kitchen. The seller is willing to negotiate on a portable yard hot tub.

9. 3BR/3BA for $124,900

Copy Link
112 Maplewood Avenue
Upper Darby, PA 19082

There are two kitchens in this three-bedroom, three-bathroom ranch-style home (okay, one is a kitchenette). It's a toss-up as to which one needs to be renovated first. That said, an in-laws suite can be a convenient thing. The converted garage would make an excellent spot for a dance studio.

10. 3BR/2BA for $139,000

Copy Link
Westview Avenue
Upper Darby, PA 19082

This three-bedroom, two-bath Dutch Colonial is located on a quiet cul-de-sac and offers a cozy porch and fireplace. Plenty of room in the large kitchen, even if the refrigerator is awkwardly situated.
