Welcome to Doylestown Borough. Location, Location, Location, not to mention the taxes on this home are only $6982 annually! Discover this stately brick home on one of the best lots with an expansive covered porch in the Boro. Enjoy a fabulous private backyard with a she/he shed with 2nd level and electricity. The home does need updating to bring it back to the glory of its past, but would be well worth it and could certainly be lived in while taking your time to make it your own. While built in 1865, this is only the third owner of this one-of-a-kind home. You will immediately notice the curb appeal that this property has to offer, being set back from the sidewalk, boasting a stately fenced front yard with steps leading up to the expansive covered front porch. The porch is the perfect spot as it sits along the towns parade route, making for a perfect day with neighbors and friends. As you step inside, you will be greeted by hardwood floors that flow throughout most of the home. On your right you will find the over-sized living room featuring a gas fireplace and an entire wall of custom built-in bookcases. Large windows with plantation shutters offer plenty of natural light and is a wonderful place to gather with family and friends. Continue down the hall to the dining room with amazing moldings and mill work including a built-in china cabinet with butler pass through. Just off the dining room is the kitchen with an abundance of cabinetry, double sink, and access to the private rear yard. Enjoy your morning coffee at the breakfast bar with room for stools that overlooks the rear yard and its wildlife. At the rear of the first floor you will encounter a potential main bedroom, with its own full bathroom, large closet, floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass door to the deck and rear yard. Originally this area was used as a spacious sun-filled family room, so you choose what works best for you. A half bath and the back staircase finish off the first level of the home. Take the front stairway to the second floor and you will encounter three bedrooms (one with a sitting room having been used as the primary bedroom but could also be converted into a huge walk-in closet). Each bedroom on this floor has a large closet and they share the full bathroom. The third floor offers many possibilities, but most recently was used as a bedroom suite with a living area, and a kitchenette. This could also be used as an office/den, home gym, playroom, or whatever you choose. A full bath with cedar closet and lots of additional closet space finish off the third level of this spacious home. This house also includes a partially finished basement with built in bar area, a laundry room and two additional rooms for your storage or other needs. Heading to the rear of the home, you will fall in love with the private setting with lots of mature trees, an elevated wood deck, a paver patio, and two-story outbuilding with electric that can be a man cave/she shed....and has plenty of storage space. This home is looking for the new owner to bring it back to its original grand stature and you will then have a home to revel all others. It is a great opportunity to own a piece of history in Doylestown Borough (situated between Church and Spruce St's) and includes the Central Bucks Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence as an added bonus and is situated within walking distance to great restaurants, unique shopping and historic sites. This home has potential for great equity once you have transformed it with today's modern amenities and your own personal style.
