Property Description

Back on the Market! An idyllic piece of Buckingham Township's rural past, the historic David Beans Farmhouse, dating to circa 1793-1806, is nestled on a peaceful country road on 2.57 acres of lush gardens, various specimen trees, spring-fed pond, woodlands and wetlands. The property was originally a part of a 400-acre patent from William Penn in 1702. The farmhouse is listed on the Heritage Conservancy's local Register of Historic Places while a façade easement and conservation easement with the Heritage Conservancy protects the property as an important part of the history and scenic value of Buckingham Township. According to the conservation easement baseline documentation: "the property embodies the distinctive characteristics of an early nineteenth century Bucks County farmhouse and maintains integrity of location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, feeling, and association." Structures on the property consist of the original farmhouse with later kitchen addition, the original springhouse, a garage/workshop (potential for home office or studio) and charming garden shed. The facade easement protects the older sections of the home and springhouse. The easement makes provisions for an addition to the southeast (rear) of the property, which would be an ideal setting to take in the unparalleled beauty of the gardens, woodlands, and pond. The property is in the Paunacussing Creek watershed, a remarkable natural habitat for a variety of wildlife, including birds, amphibians and koi inhabiting the pond. There are magnificent old growth trees, including four protected specimen trees: A massive sycamore tree, two evergreen hollies and a magnolia grandiflora. This is truly a breathtaking and rare natural setting! Preserved farmland in this region of Buckingham township offers protected views driving to and from the property. The oldest part of the home (circa 1793-1806) is stucco over stone with six over six windows. This section offers a formal living room with fine woodwork, fireplace with detailed mantel, built-ins, beamed ceiling and handsome original hardwood floors. The original paneled door with antique lock leads to a side porch and a staircase leads to the second level. Off the living room is a charming library with tiled fireplace, built-ins, beamed ceiling, hardwood floors and half bath. The dining room is part of a circa 1840s addition with walk-in fireplace, basement access and second stairs leading to the master bedroom. Another original door leads to the porch. The kitchen addition dates to the 1970s and 1980s with cathedral ceilings, a wall of Pella windows overlooking the property, clerestory windows, laundry and access to the mudroom. The second floor offers two bedrooms with low ceilings (approx. 6' 6"), a full bath and walk-up attic access, perfect for storage. The pitched slate roof is accented by artistic lightning rods. The original springhouse is accented by gardens. There is large garage/workshop with second floor storage that might make a great studio or home office. Another distinctive structure is the garden shed with double pent eaves. A blissful piece of historic Bucks County, convenient to vibrant downtown Doylestown, New Hope, Philadelphia and New York! The present owner has lovingly cared for this heritage home for decades and is now seeking a new owner to become its next steward. This is a rare opportunity to own a local landmark while bringing your own vision for a potential addition and interior renovations. New elevated sand mound design complete with a location behind the barn. Seller will cover the cost of installation and will negotiate with buyer on credit. Other than the sand mound, this will be an "as is" sale. Reports and some estimates available.
