2214 Old Arch Road, East Norriton
Monthly taxes: $491
Tell me all about it: This three-bedroom, Cape-style home has charm and curb appeal. New owners might want to make some aesthetic updates to the wallpaper and paneling, but you can't beat the detached garage with extra storage or the covered side patio.
513 East Germantown Pike, East Norriton
Monthly taxes: $415
Tell me all about it: We love the updated kitchen in this two-bedroom home. The handsome flooring throughout gives the home a sophisticated feel and the nearly half-acre lot it is situated on offers plenty of options for expansion or for outdoor entertaining. The property is also a stone's throw from Einstein Hospital.
2404 Stanbridge St., East Norriton
Monthly taxes: $575
Tell me all about it: OK, so this home is more of a project than a home. The pros: It's a gorgeous stone colonial built in 1850 on a nearly two-acre lot. The cons: Once you get past the threshold, you're going to need a lot of imagination. But we love the setting and the exterior. This is a steal for the right buyer.
