What $500K Will Buy You in Huntingdon Valley
Let’s get one thing straight right away: Huntingdon Valley, a small village in Montgomery County’s Lower Moreland Township, is probably not somewhere you’re going to move for no reason at all. In fact, you will probably only move here if you are looking to settle down in the Philadelphia suburbs with your family and your search led you here, or you have some other tie to the community. It’s pretty much as suburban as it gets, but we still think it’s pretty great.
If you happen to be one of those individuals who just might purchase a property in Huntingdon Valley, good news: there are several options available right now. If your budget falls somewhere around $500,000, even better news: the median listing price in the area is $439,000. To see for yourself just what this neighborhood has to offer for home listings in the $500,000 range, read below. We picked out our top three.
279 Betsey Rd. (above) | 4 beds, 2 full, 1 half baths, 3,715 square feet, $529,000
If you’re looking for a spacious family home with a lot of breathing room, this is it. The first floor features a family room, a dining room with a wood-burning fireplace, a living room, a gourmet kitchen, and breakfast room. As is, every room is highlighted by hardwood flooring, pastel walls, and recessed lighting, all of which make the space feel light and airy. Up on the second floor, the master suite boasts his and her walk-in closets and a nice master bathroom. Three additional bedrooms and a hall bathroom finish out this floor. The basement is fully finished, as well, giving you and your family even more recreational space. This residence is the definition of a cookie-cutter suburban family home, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth your time.

111 Steele Way | 4 beds, 3 full, 1 half baths, 2,784 square feet, $499,900
This home has all the bells and whistles – and then some. Step inside the foyer where you will find Spanish porcelain tile floors. The living room features a bay window, crown molding, and hardwood flooring that flows into the dining room with a full wall of built-ins. Just beyond the kitchen are French doors that lead out onto a backyard deck. A nice feature of the family room is a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace that is surrounded by bookcases and gives the house a cozy feel. Rounding out this floor is a laundry room that provides access to the garage. Upstairs, the master suite features his and her walk-in closets, a private sitting room or office, and a master bathroom. Like the first listing, three additional bedrooms encompass this floor. The finished basement boasts a wet bar, making the residence even better for entertaining guests. This property is just shy of $500,000, leaving you right on budget.

1133 Welsh Rd. | 4 beds, 3 full, 1 half baths, 2,500 square feet, $525,000
This quirky charmer could use some updating, but the structure is all there to make this place a great family home. The main floor features a gourmet kitchen and butler’s pantry, a living room with a wood-burning fireplace, a dining room, and an office. On the second floor, find the master suite, as well as two additional bedrooms and a hall bathroom. Different from the first two listings, this one has a private third-floor bedroom and bathroom, which could potentially be an au-pair suite. The property itself is situated on an acre of land, so enjoy privacy year round. The house is move-in ready for any family, but we think you’ll probably want to put some work (or a fresh paint job, at least) into it first.
