Circa 1871...Charm of a Bucks County farmhouse located close to shopping, restaurants, and many major highways for quick access for your convenience. Lush landscape of five acres currently used by owners for their horses, chickens etc. Fencing is wire mesh with sight boards for horses. (One pasture is mesh fence which is impossible to get now and safe for foals- big selling point for horse folks) The fence along road is wood privacy fence. 2- story bank barn in solid shape with 3 -4 stalls (10x10) with a newer roof.The original home was built in 1871 and the addition was added well before our ownership. Enter the home from one of the 3 roof cover patios and you are greeted by a large foyer with tile flooring that flows nicely into the eat-in kitchen highlighted with tasteful fixtures, timeless cabinetry, and stainless appliances including a smooth top range. Under the back staircase is the pantry. The main level family room has a raised ceiling and a cozy wood burning brick fireplace surrounded by knotty pine wood paneling and built ins. The home features arched doorways, hardwood floors and built-in shelving. The living room opens to the dining area and boasts one of the homes’ two staircases with painted spindles and stained railing. Completing the main level is a powder room with a pedestal sink and tiled flooring. The laundry is housed in the powder room on the main floor.The back staircase goes directly to the master bedroom which has direct access to the bathroom. The main staircase in the living area has the main staircase to the other two bedrooms. The upstairs has a walk-through situation which was common. Wide plank hardwood flooring in all three bedrooms.Bathroom on second floor has tiled floors and tile tub/shower surround. Roof was installed in 2011 by previous owners.Well and Pump in '07 and Septic (elevated sand mound) installed in '06. The Vinyl windows have been replaced throughout by previous owner.Outdoors provides a great space to relax under one of the covered porches provide scenic views of the surrounding landscape. The two-story barn includes electric and is all original and sound, which is rare today. The “rail to trails” bike trail is only a short distance from your driveway!
