Property Description

Another timeless masterpiece by The Calhoun Co., Inc. Opportunity of a lifetime awaits as this beautifully restored farmhouse dating back to 1800 is waiting for its next forever family! The house abounds with character and charm as you walk through and witness 220+ years of history. There is plenty of space to spread your roots with 1.5 acres of land, fully restored in ground pool and equipment, and 4,628 square feet of house! Original hardwood floors remain and have been refinished. All bathrooms have been completely overhauled to provide all the modern amenities while retaining their old world charm. The main bedroom has been remodeled to provide ample space along with dual walk-in closets and brand new bathroom complete with custom shower, marble countertops and make-up area. The laundry has also been moved to the second floor in a convenient laundry room. No expense was spared in the kitchen with beautiful custom kitchen cabinets, new quartzite countertops, wolf gas range, and top of the line appliances all while still retaining its historical charm. The kitchen is finished off with a beautiful old time walk in fireplace. The third floor holds two additional rooms that can be used for ample storage, home learning, or extra office space. The exterior of the home has wonderful side and front porches to sit and watch life go by. There is also a workshop / shed building attached to the house, a detached one car garage, and pool / out building. The a/c systems have been completely replaced with 4 zones, 2 downstairs, 2 upstairs. The heating system has also been completely replaced with new forced air propane fired heater, also 4 zones, 2 upstairs, 2 downstairs. Per Bucks County Dept. Of Health records, the septic system in place had permitted upgrades done in 1988 by a reputable contractor. There is also public sewer available in the street. A 1000 gallon propane tank was buried in the front yard and leased from green propane for $1.49 / gallon. The electrical and plumbing systems have also been totally overhauled! Come take a look today!
