Property Description

The Dennis Cooney House, circa 1877, greets you at the front door with its historic plaque, courtesy of the Doylestown Historical Society. Here is a gem... just waiting for you to create the special home and lifestyle in Doylestown Boro that you've been wishing for. The 2 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath Federal-style Colonial has a deep lot (it measures 45 x 225) with the oh-so-important feature of a garage in the Boro that is accessed from Mary Street. The garage is currently 1-car but could be reconverted to it's original 2-car with loft. Dennis Cooney formerly lived on Logan Street before he built 171 W Oakland in 1877. The lot was sold to Cooney by James D. Scott, who drew Atlas maps. The lot was transferred April 1, 1876 for $250.00. Cooney only lived in the house a few years, having died in 1880, but Mrs Cooney remained until her death on September 20, 1887. The house was then sold for $850.00 to Samuel Lambert on October 1, 1887. The Lambert family then owned the home for 38 years until 1925. Since then it has transferred hands many times with changes being made consistently by new owners. The Bickel family built the kitchen in 1930; the garage was added about 1969; there was then an addition to the kitchen in 1984 and in that year the cedar siding was installed. Yes... history lives here! The original wood floors still exists along the exposed beams, dutch door and a great deal of original hardware. The charm of the home will steal your heart and the low taxes ($3,011.00) will appeal to your pockets. This is indeed a fantastic opportunity!
