This property is what Bucks County is all about and what one thinks of when they imagine living in a true, Bucks County Farmhouse! Adding to the allure is the modern amenities and tasteful upgrades to this beautiful home (natural gas, public sewer, an on-demand generator and more).
Situated on over 3 bucolic Bucks County acres with a pond view, this historic 1800’s stone farmhouse has been completely renovated and expanded over the years, featuring unique varying width pine floors, open beam ceilings, two original fireplaces, and a two story addition which added a first floor great room, three-season porch and a second floor master bedroom suite.
When you walk into the home you are welcomed by the formal parlor with a lovely stone fireplace, and winding staircase to the large, original second floor master bedroom. Continue on to a formal dining room (can also be purposed as a first floor office) which features a fireplace and wood stove insert, with winding stairs to another of the original second floor bedrooms. Adjacent to the parlor is the updated kitchen featuring hardwood floors, farmhouse style cherry cabinetry, a large granite island, and gas stove for preparing meals and entertaining. The exposed stone wall maintains the original historic feel of the home.
Meander toward the back of the house to the great room addition that features a beautiful cast iron gas stove, large windows taking in the private back yard and pond views. A kitchenette with wine cooler, beverage refrigerator and cabinetry is tucked away on the back wall.
A three-season porch with slate flooring surrounded by windows is perfect for entertaining and flows to the outside back patio. Electricity is already in place to easily add an outdoor kitchen and/or hot tub. Soak in the gorgeous views of the pond situated at the back of the tree-lined property. A mudroom connects the 2 car garage to the house and back patio.
The current owners added a central staircase that takes you to the second floor master bedroom with vaulted ceilings, a large walk-in closet, and a master bath with his and her sinks, a make-up area, and a large tiled steam shower. A built-in desk and bookcase area connects the master bedroom to the conveniently located laundry area. An added bonus is the availability of laundry connections on all three levels of the home. A hall bath with a tiled shower, claw foot tub and double vanity services the additional 3 bedrooms on the second floor. One bedroom is currently purposed as an office and is without a built-in closet.
The large 2-story bank barn has recently been resided and reroofed. The barn is great for contractors of all types, offering a first-floor shop with tool benches, a secondary room for multiple uses and three large doors where vehicles and equipment can be stored. Upstairs, you will find the traditional hay barn and a few enclosed stall areas.
A corncrib sits between the house and bank barn and can also house farm tools, equipment and wood for the fireplaces. This charming addition is a special feature the township wished to preserve. Plenty of outdoor area for vegetable or flower gardens.
