The fictional home of modern television's most famous period housewife Betty Draper was set in Elkins Park. In real life, the suburban Montgomery County neighborhood is known to have been the home of Benjamin Netanyahu and co-founder of Comcast Ralph Roberts. Real estate in the area has a median sale price of $259,000, according to Trulia. Here are three houses to be had in that vicinity.
507 Waring Rd, Elkins Park, PA
Taxes: $671 monthly
Tell me all about it: This four-bedroom beauty features envy-inducing hardwoods and windows galore. We love the knotty pine in the three-season room and the finished basement bar. Plus, the property includes a huge yard and sits on a lovely, tree-lined street.
1314 Ashbourne Rd, Elkins Park, PA
Taxes: $733 monthly
Tell me all about it: We love the curb appeal on this single home with a darling front porch. The newly remodeled kitchen and the hardwoods throughout make this home a real gem. The mudroom is another bonus, along with the enormous backyard.
221 Sunnybrook Ave, Elkins Park, PA
Taxes: $785 monthly
Tell me all about it: This split-level Elkins Park home could use some aesthetic updates, but what it lacks in modern touches it makes up in square footage. The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home is at nearly 2,400 square feet of living space. Plus, we love the basement bar and the driveway big enough to accommodate six cars.
