Property Description

Welcome to “The Flower House”, an iconic piece of Doylestown real estate right in the borough. Locals know this famous property for its stunning tulip-filled garden in the Spring, and is so beloved, that a photo of this amazing garden is posted on the Doylestown Borough website. Situated on a double lot, this home has one of the largest lots in the borough and is now available for the first time in 17 years. 393 E Court Street is a sought-after location, walking distance to shops, restaurants, museums, and downtown Doylestown.

An idyllic front porch overlooks the beautiful front garden. Charming shutters decorate the Anderson windows. The rear yard features an extended black top parking area for up to 8 cars, or even parking for an RV or boat. There is a large fenced in yard, ideal for the kiddos, pets and year-round entertaining. Two sheds are also included to park your lawn maintenance items, bikes, etc.

Once you enter the first floor, notice the details – large base moldings, arched doorways, small niches and wood floors throughout every room (some under carpeting) except for the kitchen and family room. The first floor features a large formal living room with full height windows, family room, centralized kitchen, dining room with a bay window, office, full bathroom, and separate laundry closet. Author James A. Michener, who lived in the yellow house across the street, had spent much time at the kitchen island visiting with the owners.

On the second floor you will find three spacious bedrooms with full height windows and another full bath. Though carpeted, there are wood floors beneath the carpets throughout the second floor. All of the bedrooms have spacious closets. The third floor has a bonus space, previously used as a bedroom, with storage closets in the eaves and a large picture window that lets in lots of natural light. This space would be a great studio or office. Take note of the wide plank pine floors – just fabulous! On this level there is an additional storage space, perfect for holiday decorations.

The basement is partially finished, with additional storage space, and rumor has it this space may have been used during the Civil War in the underground railroad.

New roof, newer siding, new home generator, Anderson windows, large, beautiful lot, plus tons of charm and character makes this 1910 home ready to take on the next 100 years! Come and take a look, and make it your own piece of history!
