This is a historic listing and by that I mean it is truly one of a kind and it also has a lot of history - and has a date stone of 1792 on the front of the home to prove it. The property consists of over 3 acres, surrounded by lush greenery providing a serene sense of seclusion with views of the gentle slopes of the land and a pond. The location is spectacular! You have the modern convenience of being close to major routes to get to NYC, Philadelphia, the Poconos and the shore while soaking in the bucolic scenes of Bucks County. Historic homes and land in Bucks County and beyond are in limited supply and current builders are not building solid masonry homes with solid pumpkin pine wood floors with exquisite details, right? As the lyrics Jordan Davis wrote, “'Cause the truth about it is, It all goes by real quick, You can't buy happiness, But you can buy dirt.” And they aren’t making any more of it…” There’s a minimal amount of homes originally built in the 1700’s in the Langhorne area, wouldn’t it be great to own a piece of history? This 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath stone and stucco farmhouse features: pumpkin pine floors throughout the original main home and random-width wood floors in the Kitchen; beautiful fireplaces, each with its own special charm; windows with deep sills, built-ins, storage upon storage which is rare in a home this age; several Dutch doors; a wide rocking chair porch on the side of the home; a modern kitchen (renovated in 2018) with granite counters, stainless steel appliances, reclaimed wood beams and space for a small kitchen table; a recreation room with options for whatever your needs are; 12 zones for heat and a new heater (2020), hot water heater (2020), long driveway created through the development after purchased in 2016, enlarged and renovated upstairs bathroom (2018) with jetted tub, shower and dual vanities. Throughout the home, you will enjoy taking time to notice the antique doors and hardware, trap door to the basement, hand-crafted built ins, pie staircase to the second floor, ornamental molding and the incredible stone work. The property includes a fenced in-ground concrete pool (new pump and filter 2020) and several outbuildings: a 2-story barn (25’ x 25’), a covered carport with wide stalls (which we were told used to be horse stalls), a pool house (which needs some TLC) and a Spring House. Beyond the Spring House is a 350+ year old Sycamore tree which provides a great photo opp. Speaking of photo opps - can you imagine hosting events on this property?! You would be the talk of the town for sure! You won’t run out of room for parking. The basement runs the length of the home and that’s where you’ll find the utilities. There is a walk-up, floored attic with the main section being 65’ x 15’ and a smaller section 25’ x 18’ to use for storage or investigate into potentially creating more living space. Showings are limited so contact your agent to discuss. Mortgage pre-qualification or proof of funds will be required prior to showing.
