"This home is possibly the best example of German architecture in the County", spoken by Margaret Bye Richie, an acknowledged expert on old Bucks County houses in describing this Diamond in the Rough with its two distinct sections estimated to have been built in 1813 and 1750. Generous proportioned rooms are throughout with wide pine floors, deep window sills, many exposed beams, four fireplaces (2 walk-in), nine over 6 original windows, steam heat radiators, and a 29 foot summer beam in the earliest section with its bible boxes and herringbone brick floor. Comprised of four bedrooms, 3 baths and heated with a Weil Mclain boiler with steam radiators and hot water oil, a new septic system is in the works with beginning stages of perc testing and design and will be paid for by the seller. Open meadows, towering trees, beds of flower gardens, a lily pad pond, and meditative sitting areas grace the beautiful five acres. Once a small 3-sided stone barn with loft, it now serves as a garage. Across the street and contiguous with the Bucks County Park land is a handsome stone bank barn, an elongated one story stone shed and fenced raised garden beds . Historically recognized by the Bucks County Conservancy and sporting its plaque, there are no limitations as to renovations. The present owner, having lived here 47 years is looking for the next steward to covet the rich history of this original 123 acre farm and take it to the next level.
