**Showings start Friday, June 17 at Noon. Welcome to 13 Juniper Drive in the sought-after Doylestown Borough community of Old Orchard Farm! This Mid-Century Modern gem was designed by well-known Toledo home designer, Donald J. Scholz, who sought to make the “California Contemporary” ranch home accessible to homeowners across the country. Scholz’s design foresight fits today’s aesthetic of an open and versatile floor plan suited to both casual everyday living and indoor and outdoor entertaining. Situated in a prime location in Old Orchard, this home has been owned by only two families since it was built by P & R Builders from Glenside in 1964. The original plan schematic and information about the home designer are available to view during showings. If you have been wishing for a Borough home with “good bones” and an open and versatile floor plan in the award-winning Central Bucks School District, your search can stop here. This bright, four bedroom, well-cared for rancher–with lots of room to expand–is situated on a beautiful nearly half-acre lot with both mature plantings and open space. The very spacious, flat, and square backyard is a canvas for any owner’s dream. There’s room for a new patio, a deck, a pool, vegetable, or perennial gardens, or whatever you imagine. (Of course, any expansion or building plans would require approval from the municipality.) As you enter this welcoming home through the bright vestibule, you will be immediately surprised by the openness and light, and the original hardwood floors, which extend throughout much of the living area and the bedroom wing. To your right is the kitchen, the heart and center of this home. The kitchen is bordered by two especially versatile great rooms. The first, in the front of the house, has a gas fireplace, and the other, to the rear, has a large picture window facing the backyard. An update and possible expansion of the kitchen would most certainly take advantage of the open floor plan, and both great rooms can naturally adapt to a variety of uses, informal or formal. The airy sun and screen porch with a vaulted ceiling offers excellent entertainment or relaxation space, and natural flow between the front great room and backyard. Entering through the foyer, the bedroom wing to the left has four ample bedrooms, and two full baths. The bedrooms are aligned in a way that would allow for easy reconfiguration and combination to suit an owner’s needs and design preferences, and any of the four would lend itself to a home office, study, sitting, or hobby room. The two vintage bathrooms are well preserved, but also offer ample space for modern renovation. A laundry room completes the main floor, and provides access to a clean, dry, and high ceiling partial basement with a compact utility area in one corner, leaving the main space available for finishing, storage, play area, shop or whatever you desire. A two-car garage, coupled with additional space for parking or “turn-around” makes the driveway easy to maneuver. Come and visit 13 Juniper Drive, and Old Orchard Farm. Bring your ideas and your own sense of space and design and imagine yourself living in this mid-century modern gem. This home will not last long!
