A unique opportunity to own one of Bucks County’s most distinctive historic properties. Built in 1780, this 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath French Normandy-style stone farmhouse with slate roof features two wood-burning fireplaces, antique black walnut flooring, and a double-height great room with balcony. With 10 acres of pasture, the property boasts a working 12,000 sf stone bank-barn (insulated and heated!), a refurbished stone spring-house, a tractor barn, grain silo, and a 2000 sf accessory dwelling (just waiting to be restored as an inlaw suite or guest house). Add to this list an inground pool, a small pond and a stone-walled vegetable garden and you have all the ingredients for a nice life. Extremely private, the house sits at the end of a private lane far away from the road and between two undeveloped 10 acre wooded parcels. Located in Doylestown, PA which was voted “Best Small Town Cultural Scene in America” and the home to the Michener Art Museum, the Pearl S. Buck House and the Mercer Museum, our little town attracts an interesting and diverse population. Only 90 minutes from NYC and 45 min from Philly by car (or take the train or bus from the center of town). Top public schools in the state, low taxes ($11,700 in 2020). A great property for a home-based business or agri related enterprise. We currently raise Romney and Lincoln wool-sheep which keep our taxes (and our grass) low and add an old-world feel to the property. Only 10 minutes from one of PA’s best agricultural schools (DelVal University).
The property is a work-in-progress and will require some TLC to get it into perfect condition, but the investment would be well worth it.
