Rare opportunity to purchase a mint condition stone home in Hulmeville Borough's Historic District. You will surely feel as if you have just walked back in time. This classic federal style 3-story stone colonial has endless history, character, and charm under one roof. This one-of-a-kind home is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the homeowners have historical records of the home dating back to 1823. Mr. Hulme built this house for his daughter and at one time it was a bank, post office, and the area's first YWCA. To top it off, it has been lived in, decorated, and loved by an Interior Designer owner. Upon entering the sun-splashed living room, please notice the beautiful wood-burning fireplace and dramatic mantel and woodwork. Adjacent to the living room, you'll enter the dining room containing a mantel originating from a farmhouse where St. Mary's Hospital now sits and is termed the 'Philadelphia Mantel'. Take note of the gorgeous original wide-plank pine flooring, exquisite crown molding, 14 newer Pella Architect Series windows on the 1st & 2nd floors and fresh paint throughout. Adjoining the kitchen, the serene sunroom with exposed stone and cathedral ceiling offers a panoramic view of the beautifully maintained gardens and engineered brick patio where you can entertain or just relax in the tranquility of nature. The private, lush yard with raised vegetable gardens and impeccably manicured landscaping also offer a view of the Neshaminy Creek, so grab your Kayak for the warmer weather! It is important to note that no flood insurance is required, as the home is not in a flood zone. Second and third floors continue with the same period charm and historical decor. The fully renovated spa-style bathroom includes a clawfoot tub and Arabesque Calacatta marble floor. New recessed lights in nursery. The third-floor dressing room will accommodate today~s wardrobe. The basement comes equipped with a tool bench and ample shelving for storage. New to the home is an alarm system, exterior flood lighting, and exterior up-lighting out front. The stone driveway can accommodate 3 vehicles. Due to the prime location within the borough of Hulmeville, you will be able to partake in all of the community's festivals: the Holiday Tree lighting, Hulmeville Day, and the Memorial Day Parade. On Main Street just a few steps away is the Hulmeville Inn Restaurant, local businesses including a brand-new gym, antique store, and coffee shop. Fun fact- Houdini once performed in the newly restored and historical Johnson's Hall. A Playground and soccer field are footsteps away. Hulmeville is truly a wonderful community to live in, featuring active groups like the garden club, historical society, and more within the highly-rated Neshaminy School District. This home is minutes from the Langhorne Train Station, Trenton Transit Center, and all major highways including the PA Turnpike, Route 1, and I-95. This location proves to be ideal for commuters traveling to Philadelphia or New York.
