Bucks County's Doylestown is older than the republic, dating to 1745. Today it's a desirable locale, in part, for being one of the towns sending students to the Central Bucks School District, perennially listed among top districts in the commonwealth. These homes can be had for less than the community's median listing price of $573,000.

Tell me all about it: This four-bedroom colonial has great flow from the kitchen through the family room, without fully leaning into an open floor plan. We love the light flowing in from every direction almost as much as we love the soaking tub in the master suite. The grounds on which the property is situated also include a deck, a pool, a gazebo and a hot tub.

110 Spring Meadow Lane 
Monthly taxes: $889 
Tell me all about it: This four-bedroom home features a terrific family room with floor-to-ceiling fireplace and cathedral ceilings. We love a kitchen with double pantries, and this property includes not just dual pantries but dual ovens and an island with a cooktop. The master also features dual walk-in closets, dual sinks and a lovely jetted tub.

Monthly taxes: $848 
Tell me all about it: This four-bedroom center hall colonial might be ready for a cosmetic upgrade in some rooms, but the space is perfect. The screened porch overlooks a tremendous back yard. The attached garage beckons a tinkerer who is in need of a work space, and the walk-out, unfinished basement offers plenty of opportunity for a fifth bedroom, third full bath, or storage space.
