Come see this 220-year-old well-maintained colonial home in the historic village of Penn's Park. This home boasts the original transom windows with blown glass, exposed beams, stone, thick wooden baseboards, and wide-plank wood flooring keeping to the original look as much as possible. The bright eat-in kitchen opens into the great room so you can enjoy the experience of cooking while chatting with friends and family! The great room is fitted with built-in cabinets, a fully-functional walk-in stone fireplace with a wood-burning stove surrounded by beautiful decorative ceramic inlet tiles along the plank wooden floors that add the extra warmth on those cold winter nights. Conveniently located off the great room is a first-floor half-bath and the large laundry area renovated with ceramic tile floor. Original pie staircases guide you upstairs into the bedroom areas. The master bedroom and bath also feature wide-plank original floors and ceramic tile, ceiling fan, nice-size closets, fireplace and access to the elevated deck that overlooks the private backyard. Off of the master bedroom, you'll find the second bedroom that is currently used as a nursery. This room can also be used as an office, a sitting area or converted into a large walk-in closet. The second pie staircase leads to the third-floor bedroom with closets and finished attic storage with built-in drawers. In the past two years, the home has been renovated with new stainless steel kitchen appliances, a new chimney, third-floor carpeting, Pottery Barn window treatments, modern high-efficiency base-board heaters on each floor, a new furnace, a new Pelican whole-house saline water filtration system, a new sump pump, new drain and bath plumbing, and new PVC under-home plumbing. The great room was professionally restored with historic wood and lath plaster method and new ceiling, then professionally painted, along with the master bed and bath. Want some private time away from the family? The detached garage has been renovated and converted into another living area with baseboard heat and loft area. The property is landscaped with several beautiful flowering trees and gardening beds with annual flora planted, a toolshed, very large storage shed, a wood storage shelter for two cords of wood, a fenced garden, and a children's playset. During the summer nights, come sit out and enjoy the views from your private deck or roast some s'mores with the family on your patio deck. Walk to brunch at the Fancy Fig cafe, Blossom Yoga, Middletown Grange Fairgrounds, Carousel Gardens, or the shops at Penns Park. No worries with the water or septic systems. The whole house water filtration system gives you clean, delicious water from every tap in the home. AND A septic inspection was just completed at the end of June 2019 passing and functioning properly with a certification document for the new owner! There is so much to this Bucks County classic home that is a must-see for anyone that is not only looking for a single home but a home with tons of character. It's waiting for you!
