Upon entering this Circa 1864 3-story farmhouse w/Federal & Victorian influences, the quietness of the home's interior is readily evident. Original Charm & Character fill this residence on 2+ acres with an in-ground pool, a full outdoor "cabana bath", 2-story barn/garage (35' x 27' with a 27' x 15' loft) & geothermal HVAC. Newer major mechanicals make this property one to take notice of. At just over a mile to New Hope's Main Street, the location & setting of this historic residence provide the established backdrop for your dreams of a place in the country. Entering from the unique iron-work front porch, guests are brought into the formal center hall, situated so as to provide ideal flow for entertaining. Uncharacteristic of many older homes, the rooms are surprisingly generous with plenty of closets, enchanting built-ins & storage. Adding to the distinct style are 10 foot ceilings, plaster walls, Pumpkin Pine flooring, Mercer tile flooring, extensive original mill work & hardware, 2 original staircases; one formal & one a concealed pie-stairway, as well as a very generous & private screened veranda. The private pie-stairs alternately lead to the Sitting Room for the Master Bedroom or a private 2nd floor en Suite Bedroom w/dressing area. The 30' veranda opens to a stone patio/courtyard nook with access to the Family room & pool/yard. The maturely landscaped grounds are remarkably private & peaceful with multitudes of specimen plantings, flowering trees of many varieties & one of the largest Wisteria Vines in Eastern PA, wrapping the iron frame of an original windmill. Adding to the flexibility of the home is the cathedral ceilinged family room addition with skylights, and a commanding view of the rear property & pool. The 2-story barn w/electric houses a very over-sized two car garage, huge workshop spaces & a 2nd floor loft.
