It’s not often that an opportunity to live in Leopard Lakes comes along. This is one of those rare opportunities.

Leopard Lakes in Berwyn is the only year-round resort community on the main line. And this extended Cape Cod home in Berwyn for sale faces the lake.

It’s not right on the lake, but it’s located so you can see it through the two-story windows of its family room, just to the left of the lobby.

The dining room

This two-story wing, added in 2005, is part of the reason this home doesn’t look like mid-1950s Cape Cod. You’ll also notice that the construction project added many colonial details to the home, both inside and outside.
