The photo above shows typical automobile traffic at the intersection.
What effect does being located on Lewinsville Road have on a home price? Two homes have been listed and sold on Lewinsville Road this year. They sold for $740,000 and $785,000 respectively.

However, when they are included the saver sale price is $950,000. These statistics, do not take condition of the home into account, but show that a sale price may be lower when a home is situated on Lewinsville Road.
