Idyllic, affluent suburban lifestyle
Tucked into Montgomery County's easternmost corner is the community of Huntingdon Valley. The area is loved for its peaceful vibe and beautiful greenery. The nearly 350-year-old community has evolved into Philadelphia’s best example of remote suburban living. With Center City located within a reasonable 30- to 45-minute commute, many residents love coming home to this lush suburban neighborhood.
Lower Moreland real estate is just as dynamic. Single-family homes, condos, and townhomes are available across the area. Variety is the spice of life, and here you have peaceful pastoral estates, subdivisions with a more intimate feel, and low maintenance condo living.
Lower Moreland is the personification of the ideal affluent suburban lifestyle. The big city of Philadelphia is close but kept at arm’s length. Large open spaces to explore. Short, effortless commute to major employers. Lower Moreland Township features all of the above.
In addition, Lower Moreland public schools are a huge draw. Vibrant commercial spaces set away from the major residential zones, and features outstanding outdoor access to neighborhood parks and expansive natural preserves.
Huntingdon Pike represents the most dynamic commercial district running from County Line Road down to Moreland Road. Along the northern end of Huntingdon Pike is upscale Italian at Osteria Saporino. Further south is the fresh and healthy menu and baked goods of the Be Well Bakery & Cafe.
Lower Moreland’s northernmost point is The Marketplace at Huntingdon Valley, which features over 45 shops and restaurants. Across the street is the Marketplace's sister storefronts, which include the fantastic Ben & Irv’s Deli.
Lower Moreland's most prominent natural feature is the Pennypack Ecological Restoration Trust. Spread over 852 acres, the natural and open space preserve includes nearly 10 miles of hiking trails, including the five-mile Pennypack Trail.
The June Fete Fair and Horse and Pony Show is held annually the second weekend after Memorial at the Dixon Equestrian Center. The beloved tradition includes rides, live entertainment, games, food, and, of course, a horse and pony show.
As part of the Bryn Athyn Historic District, which includes the Glencairn Museum and Bryn Athyn Cathedral, the 26,000-square-foot Cairnwood Estate is a Beaux-Arts designed home that includes lush gardens across seven acres. It currently hosts private and public events and offers tours.
Lower Moreland Township public schools are highly sought after and known to be a big draw for moving to this wonderful community.
