Property Description

Set back against the backdrop of willow trees, mature greenery, and horizons full of rolling Bucks County land, this idyllic estate home rises up from the long drive with the grandeur of yesteryear. Comprised of a gracious five-bedroom stone farmhouse and three smaller rental units, this property is the perfect location for a home with investment income or for a large family looking to stay together while still having individual space. Charm and nostalgia of a simpler time abound in the wide and random-width pumpkin pine flooring, which is set off against deep windowsills, stone walls, and exposed beam ceilings in many rooms of this historic home. Enjoy an updated and spacious eat-in kitchen, fitted with cherry cabinetry, Corian countertops and recessed lighting. The eat-in area opens via sliding doors to the covered flagstone patio, where storybook views abound between the white pillars separating the patio from the fenced in-ground pool area beyond. Adjacent to the kitchen is a formal room, perfect as a classic dining room. At the opposite end of the main level, a handsome home office features built-ins and a vaulted, beamed ceiling. An exposed stone wall and original door divide the home office from the home's original kitchen room, complete with deep fireplace , built in shelving, and exposed beam ceilings. This warm and welcoming room will serve beautifully as a family room or gathering space as it leads into the expansive main living room, which features a second fireplace and is bright and sunny from transoms over the four exterior doorways and windows on both sides. Access a sunroom addition from here, where you'll find a hot tub and the same dreamy views of the surrounding property. Upstairs, a massive bedroom offers a fireplace, random width original floors, and access to a full bathroom. Next to the bathroom, find an original room which has been converted into a walk-in closet and, beyond that, a bedroom with it's own private balcony - ideal as a home office, master bedroom sitting room or meditation space. Bedrooms three and four on this level are down the hall and share a full bathroom. A fifth bedroom sits apart from the rest and accesses a full bathroom, perfect for the family member that desires a bit more privacy. This extensive property offers outbuildings and rental income from two two-bedroom units and a one-bedroom unit. For every dream you've has of owing an iconic piece of Bucks County History, this home is that dream manifest. The character and architecture are here, and there is ample room to make this building your very own.
