Federal-Era Manor House

2635 Windy Bush Road Newtown, PA 18940
$775,000

Description

Tucked down a long drive, this 1835 stone house is in a pretty, picket-fenced setting with separate studio building, carriage-house-style garage, two-car garage and charming outdoor entertainment area within barn ruins. Step inside and it’s clear that this home was built by a person of means: high ceilings, substantial millwork, tall sash windows and elaborate, classically Federal-period fireplace surrounds are key style elements in the two front parlors. Wood floors and built-ins tucked here and there add to the home’s appeal. The heart of the home is a big country kitchen with a walk-in fireplace now warmed by a wood-burning stove. An island with bar seating, a wealth of storage, a casual dining area and access to a rear patio perfect for grilling and al fresco dining make the house well suited to entertaining and everyday needs. Just off the kitchen is a light-filled addition that is now used as a dining room. Bedrooms are located on the second and third floors. The main suite is finished with wood floors, generous closet space and its own bath with a soaking tub. A second bedroom on this floor, also with wood floors, is served by a hall bath. The top floor includes a bedroom, a flex room and plenty of storage space. Dependencies on the property include a studio building now used by a photographer; a detached two-car garage convenient to the house; a second garage/carriage house now used for storage and stone barn ruins perfect as an entertainment venue. With 6 acres, horses are certainly a possibility. There’s plenty of parking for guests. The property’s surroundings, with mature trees and gardens, belie just how close it is to daily conveniences and the boroughs of Newtown, New Hope & Doylestown. Truly hidden, and a gem for the buyer seeking privacy and character. Convenient to shopping, dining and I-95 for commuting purposes. Brand new septic!
