Perkasie is the place to live!

Categories: New Homes | Posted: April 13, 2016

According to a recent article on Philly.com, Perkasie is a place coveted by those enamored with small-town living in a close to everywhere location.

Mentioned in the article is Hallmark Homes Group’s new community, Country Ridge with homes starting in the $360,000’s.

“Today’s buyers want new, and residential construction is a good sign of an active real estate market,” Country Ridge Model Homesays Frank Dolski, an agent with Coldwell Banker Hearthside Real Estate in Lahaska. “New construction is both refreshing and it goes off the market as fast as it arrives.”  “Perkasie has a nice small-town feel, people like that.”

There are 43 active listings in the borough, (One of which is a quick delivery home in the Country Ridge community) ranging in price up to $429,900.

In the 12 months ending in March, there were 93 closed sales, up from 83 in the previous year, he says.

“There is a real sense of identity with the community,” says Stephen Barth, pointing to Mayor John Hollenbach, whose family has lived in Perkasie for six generations, as an example.

The wealth of Victorian architecture here reminds many of Cape May, and, according to Barth, the architect primarily responsible for these homes was Milton Bean.

“The housing stock in Perkasie is so undervalued,” Barth says, citing one Bean home – a three-story, six-bedroom dwelling – that sold for $319,000. “The same house would be more than $1 million in Doylestown,” he says.

Perkasie is growing on what Barth calls the “live/work/play model,” which means, well, just that.

Country Ridge is an intimate and welcoming neighborhood of 18 homes set on a quaint cul-de-sac with all homes backing to permanent open space. It’s a perfect balance of easy going country living in a “close-to-everywhere” location. Walk to dinner, shopping or the nearby parks. Perkasie is a growing community and Country Ridge is the place to live!
