I think you should take a look at the "Willow Knoll" development in Warrington, Bucks County.

3 Bedroom/2.5 Bathroom townhouses in Central Bucks School District for under $200K.

Right off of Rt. 611 - close to everything. Plus with the opening of that new Wegmans grocery store and the Valley Square Shopping center - property values are expected to rise...

The Palomino Farms neighborhood in Warrington is also within your price range - maybe a little bit over. Most of the homes in Palomino are about $350-$400k. But with much more land that in Willow Knoll.

Good Luck to you!

How close is that area to 95 N? I'm having trouble trying to figure out a good family area, with top notch schools (we have an academically gifted child- so he needs a challenge) that is situated in a good shopping district, low crime area. We need to be able to get to NY and PHIL easily... is Council Rock a better school system than Pennsbury and how does central bucks compare?

I used to live in that exact area and I loved it. They're getting a Wegmans??? I love Wegmans!! I have to say, I miss that area, now more than ever since Wegmans is coming.

the Wegmans just opened in October - I love it! what a great store...they have everything. actually, they opened this whole big "lifestyle shopping center" or something like that they call it. they built it like a main street - if you are from the Philly area, think old-time Germantown Ave. - so there are shops all along the strip. it's really nice - I definitely recommend that you check it out if you are still in the area. it's on 611 between Street and Bristol Rds (closer to Street Rd). have fun...

yes - Warrington is in the Central Bucks School District. Lots of kids in both Willow Knoll and Palomino Farms neighborhoods that I mentioned earlier.

ok mix of old and new construction. though I would say that most of the housing in the area is old. I don't mean to say that it's OLD, but older. Not alot of new construction unless you want to pay for it - expensive! And most of the new construction is townhouse developments catering to retired couples and single professionals. I would estimate that most of the houses around my neighborhood are approximately 20-30 years old.

I've been in Warrington for about 2 years now and I love it. My husband and I chose Warrington mainly for the schools- central bucks has a great reputation.
