The Erwinna Schoolhouse (circa 1861). Nestled in the quiet village of Erwinna, this historic building has been thoroughly updated for modern living. The open concept first floor features gleaming hardwood floors, a gorgeous brick fireplace with wood-burning stove, a dining area, sunroom, full bath, and a sunny kitchen with countertops fashioned from the school’s original chalkboard. Upstairs are the spacious principal bedroom, another full bath, and an inviting guest bedroom or office/studio. Reminders of the home’s days as a one-room schoolhouse are everywhere: original windows, high ceilings, antique doors and shutters, hand-built cabinetry, and, last but not least, the original steeple, which was lovingly restored in 2019. The original steeple bell is now displayed in the living room (and will stay with the property). This is a rare opportunity to own an architectural gem, one of just a handful of buildings in the Delaware River Valley that stand as a testament to the rich historic and cultural significance of Bucks County. It’s just a short walk to the Delaware River Canal Path, with miles of trails for biking, hiking, horseback riding or cross-country skiing. Tinicum Park, the Giving Pond, and Ralph Stover State Park are less than ten minutes by car, and Frenchtown, just over the river in New Jersey, offers fine dining, beautifully curated shops and bookstores, world-class art galleries and restaurants. Daily buses to and from New York City are also nearby, and it’s just an hour and a half commute to both NYC and Philadelphia.
