We proudly present a one-of-a-kind opportunity to become the next caretaker of the historic Thomas Ross House on Linden Avenue in the Borough of Doylestown. This gracious Federal style home was designed in 1910 by the well known architect Oscar Martin for a prominent attorney named Thomas Ross. The setting of this home offers mature, lush landscaping and privacy that is second to none in the Borough.
An artistic and colorful perennial flower garden and arbor greets you as you arrive at this private estate down a long drive. Beyond the garden is a multi-use cottage complete with full bath, heat and a/c, ready for your creative imagination. A two car garage is attached to the cottage.
This grand three-story, 6 bedroom home has been lovingly cared for over the years. In 1999 the current owners added a lovely breakfast room and large family room with vaulted ceilings that overlook a terraced bluestone patio with views of the towering sugar maple tree, gardens and rolling front yard. The additional space brings the square footage to approximately 4500.
Enjoy preparing meals in the custom William Draper kitchen with warm pine cabinets, granite counters and tile floors. The formal living and dining rooms are large and inviting with stunning fireplaces that showcase local Mercer tile and antique millwork. A french door opens from the living room to an intimate patio bordered by an ivy-covered brick wall with a unique wall fountain, a perfect spot for dining or lazy afternoon tea. The large terraced patio offers delightful shady views and a peaceful setting for outdoor entertainment.
The second floor main bedroom suite has hardwood flooring and is complete with a beautiful fireplace and private bath. The room adjacent to the main bedroom could be purposed as a whole room closet or an office as well as many other uses. Two additional rooms and a full bath finish out the second level. The third floor offers two large bedrooms and a full bath for long or short term guests. Mechanicals include central air, central vac, security system, 220V electrical and transfer switch for generator.
Enjoy evening walks to the many excellent restaurants and shops in town and then meander on home to the privacy of this elegant estate. The indoor and outdoor living space this home has to offer is a rare gem hidden in the center of Doylestown Borough. This home is must see.
