Sledding at Gompers Park, house sales next door in North Mayfair

Saturday's snow and decent temperatures offered an optimal sledding opportunity.  We took the quick 10 minute ride west up Foster Avenue to Gompers Park. The sledding hills are adjacent to the Gompers Park Field House and swimming pool and across the street from the North Mayfair neighborhood. There are also a Jewel Store and strip mall nearby at Pulaski to warm up and get snacks after a good run.

North Mayfair offers affordable single family houses near great amenities like Gompers Park and grocery shopping. 33 single family homes closed in the North Mayfair neighborhood over the last 12 months.  The median price for a house is about $230,000.  However, homes near the median price tend to be smaller 2 or three bedrooms, 1 or 1 1/2 bath with dated finishes.
