Don’t miss this opportunity to own a piece of history in the heart Bucks County! As part of the Riale tract dating back to the 1740’s, this beautiful farmhouse has been lovingly restored and meticulously maintained by the current owner since 1984. Set on approximately 1 acre in the Meetinghouse Estates neighborhood of Doylestown Township, this home has the historic details and character you’d expect, while integrating thoughtful additions over the years with modern amenities. As you approach the home, you can’t help to notice the beautiful setting and the brick paver pathway leading to the enclosed front patio. With floor to ceiling windows and a brick set floor, the front patio is nothing short welcoming. Coming in from the patio, there are two entrances. The main door will take you in through the eat-in kitchen. The kitchen incorporates a dining area with bay window, peninsula counter, plenty of cabinet space, and a woodstove that is placed inside the iconic fireplace typical of 18th century homes. Moving toward the back of the home, adjacent to the kitchen, is the great room. The great room, built on to the home in 1990, has high ceilings, exposed beams, a wood burning fireplace with stone surround, and lots of windows overlooking the amazing backyard and providing lots of natural light throughout the day. Whether you’re unwinding at the end of the day or gathering with friends and family, this room will easily become the heart of the home. Just off the great room and kitchen is a dining room, beautifully accented by a natural stone wall, hardwood flooring, and double glass doors to the deck. The dining room is enclosed and can easily be shut off to the rest of the home when it isn’t being used. On the main living level, opposite the kitchen and great room you’ll find a cozy living room, den/study, and the half bath. This side of the home is part of the original structure going back centuries; the exposed stone and brick walls, deep windowsills, and mercer tiles, leaves the character of the home undiminished. This space is also simply removed from the main living space of the home and can be a quiet space for enjoying a book, working from home, an art studio, or just about anything you enjoy. Heading upstairs to the 2nd level there are 4 bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a closet with the washer and dryer. The master bathroom has a recently remodeled full bathroom with stall shower. Closet space is plentiful in all 4 bedrooms. Going up to the 3rd floor is the 5th bedroom, a loft space, and another full bathroom. The backyard is a world of its own! Accessible from the great room, a sliding door will take you out to the deck overlooking the inground pool. There is an uncovered section and a covered section, both spaces can easily accommodate outdoor seating for any occasion rain or shine. There is a small pool house on the back side of the pool is perfect for keeping the pool goers out of the house if needed; with plenty of space to change, has running water and a toilet. The two-car detached garage was also incorporated nicely into the landscape. With access from the driveway or the pool deck, it’s just a short walk into the home and very accessible when it’s time to store deck furniture or pool equipment. The 2-car oversized garage also has a 2nd floor perfect for a workshop, additional storage, or can be finished off for additional living space someday. The unfinished basement of this home is only used for utility systems and storage. Located just minutes outside of the Doylestown Boro in the Central Bucks School District, this home also features public sewer, well water, oil heat, and central air (only in the kitchen, great room, and dining room).
