956 DURHAM RD, Durham Township, Bucks, 18077 Pennsylvania - This 1880 brick Gothic Victorian showcases the finest in high-style, late-19th-century craftsmanship yet offers every modern comfort with all systems updated since 2012. Tucked away in the sleepy historical village of Durham in Upper Bucks, it was built by the wealthiest man in town who, among other ventures, owned a company that manufactured windows, doors, millwork and moldings.

The mudroom opens to a patio and lovely grounds with a barn/garage, guest house and stream. Private quarters are upstairs and include a main bedroom suite with an all-new bath with neutral cabinetry, a whirlpool tub and stall shower.

Behind the main residence is the one-bedroom guest house, a charming cottage with living room, dining room, new kitchen, new bath, new windows and updated HVAC.
