Steeped in Bucks County history and a lineage that connects directly to the American Civil War, 148 East State was designed in 2nd empire style architecure by Quaker architect Thomas Lester Cernea who also designed the Lenape & Josiah Bank buildings in Doylestown Boro. The home was built for Marie Antoinette Ely, the widow of Brevet Major General John Ely commander of the Pa volunteer infantry during the civil war. After serving generations of longstanding local gentry the home has undergone a complete renovation, restoration and expansion in conjunction with locally revered architect Ellen Happ & Jarrett Vaughan custom builders. The 3 story home features a concave mansard roof with matching dormer windows, molded cornices, decorative brackets and 2 over 2 windows with paneled and louvered shutters. A small gabled hood porch with Doric columns welcomes you through the original double doors. Follow the intricate hardwood floors to the front living room with wood burning Mercer tiled fireplace. Look up and see the original handcrafted banister system that leads the eye up three floors of symmetry. The main dining room with wet bar, Mercer tile fireplace, hardwood floors and deep crown moulding is ready for revelry. Enter the new addition that flows seemlessly through time and detail to the expansive eat in kitchen with 6 burner gas range, high profile appliances, custom cabinetry and a bank of windows inviting the sun to inhabit the dining area. The 2nd floor offers a master suite with a view through the treetops across the boro. The master bath has a walk-in shower, soaking tub, dual vanity, artisan tile work and custom millwork accenting every detail. The expansive 2nd bedroom rivals the master with full bath, large walk-in closet and a grand view as well. The 3rd floor has two generous bedrooms, restored custom millwork, ample closets and full bath. There is a brand new finished basement with wet bar and under counter beverage center. The home is retro-fitted with 4 stop elevator chase that can installed if requested. Located in the heart of Doylestown Boro. 2 car garage. Private driveway. Whole house sound system wiring. This is one of a kind iconic property.
