Highly desirable tight-knit community with a suburban feel.
Flourtown is adjacent to the neighborhoods of Erdenheim, Oreland, Whitemarsh, and Chestnut Hill. Founded in 1743, the community was so named on account of a flouring mill near the original town site. Historical accounts mention regional farmers had previously come to the area to buy supplies and have their wheat ground by the millers along the Wissahickon.
The primary commercial areas are located along Bethlehem Pike in Erdenheim and Flourtown, and smaller industrial pockets in Oreland and Wyndmoor. The Flourtown farmers market is a must-visit in this town.
Casual living, desirable schools, and a tight-knit community. Many longtime residents upsize and downsize within the community. There are many desirable outdoor spaces including Wissahickon Valley Park, Fort Washington State Park, and the Morris Arboretum.
A single-family fixer-upper home starts at about $245k while a 9700 square foot colonial-style home on 3 acres will cost about $2.8 million. The median home value is about $345k. The majority of the community is developed with single-family detached dwellings constructed during the 1940's, 50's and 60’s. Home styles include colonial, ranch, and cape cod.
Living in a small town while still having quick access to Philadelphia and Chestnut Hill, having your own farmer’s market in the community, and endless explorations in the Wissahickon. Don’t miss yoga at the labyrinth behind Saint Thomas Church when the weather cooperates.
