Own a piece of Bucks County history at Sunny Side School! Built in 1895, this charming brick building on a serene lot served as a one-room schoolhouse for decades. Many original details still remain -- high ceilings, wainscoting. baseboard moldings, extended height windows, wood floors, interior doors, and even the front door with low-set handle for the students. The low taxes are just one highlight of this property! Now serving as a residence, the main classroom area hosts a combination of a living room and dining room. Floor markings where the desks were attached remain and add to the charm and history of this special home. A wood fireplace layers more dimension to this space. Two bedrooms and a full bathroom have also been created from the open area on the first floor. At the back of the house, a kitchen was designed from what had been the classroom coat closet. Exposed brick walls and a black slate Munson sink brought in from Maine are highlights of this area. From the sliding doors in the kitchen, you can see the private wood deck, stone patio, quaint pond, and beautiful gardens so lovingly cultivated. Upstairs there is an open loft space with hideaway, and a third bedroom. The vaulted ceiling in this bedroom brings an extra sense of space. The walk-in closet allows for hanging and shelving. A custom made live-edge black walnut counter top (wood from Haycock Lumber Company) and tiled shower are highlights in this bathroom. The basement has been waterproofed, houses the laundry, has great storage space, and also a "coal door" leading to cooler temperature storage. A one car garage with barn door has access from the kitchen. Imagine sitting on the welcoming front porch with views of the "secret gardens", just steps away from all that Doylestown Borough has to offer. This delightful piece of history can be yours!
