Charm and character abound at this fabulous residence which sits directly across from the award winning CB West High School. Recognized by the Doylestown Historical Society as the ~William Rubinkam House~ circa 1834, this home was tastefully updated with an addition in 2013 by one of the area's finest builders, Jarrett Vaughan. Located within walking distance to everything the Borough has to offer including Doylestown Hospital, YMCA, the train station and all of the wonderful stores and restaurants downtown. Enjoy front row views of the Memorial Day parade. The entire house has random width pumpkin pine floors with custom doors and reproduction hardware to match the original colonial design. 2 turrets with real copper roofs and copper gutters. Exterior was painted in 2013 and all the outside Pella window trim was replaced in Azek, with the exception of the original wavy glass windows facing West Court Street. A separate study with built-in bookcases is located off the front entry foyer, and could serve as a first floor bedroom. The living room features a wood burning fireplace, and there is a wood stove in the dining room. The heart of the home centers around the combined kitchen and family room with 9ft ceilings and radiant heat flooring. Custom built-in cabinetry and walls of windows provide views of the sunrise and beautifully landscaped yard. A ~secret garden~ off the kitchen invites al fresco dining on the flagstone patio, surrounded by flower beds and a koi pond. A Trex deck with pergola is located off the family room. At the back of the house, the mudroom/laundry room has an outside entrance along with a conveniently located half bath. Upstairs the master bedroom is a dream with 9ft ceilings and skylights, gas fireplace, built in cabinetry and window seats with storage. There are plenty of windows and a walkout balcony so you can sit and enjoy a cup of tea while keeping an eye on the kids in the fully fenced yard with 6ft cedar shadow box fencing. Radiant heated floors in the bedroom continue into the master bathroom, featuring a 15 foot turret ceiling, double vanity, jetted tub that provides pure relaxation, and a separate walk-in shower with body jets. The Prince/Princess suite bathroom was remodeled in 2013 and has radiant heated floors. The third bedroom has a custom built-in bed and cabinetry, and access to the hall bathroom featuring a beautiful antique claw foot tub and separate shower. The basement is partially finished and has a cozy area with another half bath, great for the kids to escape and watch movies. Off-street parking is provided in the driveway with 3-car parking along with a shed to store your lawn furniture. There is an old ~root cellar~ on the side of the house for storing gardening tools. Another shed, finished with electricity, cable and a flagstone patio with fire pit, would make a great ~man cave~ or artist studio. The house has various zoned central air and gas radiant heat. A high efficiency gas furnace was installed in 2013, as well as central vacuum and whole house surge protector. A 1-year home warranty is included for extra peace of mind.
