It's so hard to find an elegant 19th-century farmhouse that is set off the road in a beautiful private setting yet within minutes of major commuter access. but here it is. this home, built around 1833, showcases original wide plank floors, stone under stucco allowing for touches of exposed interior stone, deep windowsills, and boasts three levels of fabulous living space. the property also includes a very appealing guest house renovated in 2017, a 2 car garage, and the 19th-century barn, which is in excellent condition and adds a world of opportunity. perfectly set in the midst of 4.64 beautiful acres, the main level of the home features a bright, formal living room centered around an elegant working fireplace and custom built-ins. the dining room with exposed beams and walk-in fireplace (closed off) opens to the covered front porch. the kitchen includes an eating area and is fully open to the family room with exposed stone wall and exterior access to all sides of the house including the very private rear patio. a convenient laundry and powder room complete this level. the 2nd level includes a central den/gathering room with another great (closed off) stone fireplace showpiece, and 3 spacious, freshly painted bedrooms serviced by a full bath. the 3rd level encompasses the incredible primary suite which includes the very spacious primary bedroom with full bath and yet another beautiful office/private den/sitting area with a working fireplace. this is the perfect hideaway for a quiet work or relaxation zone. the original blacksmith's workshop is today the very desirable guest house with 1 bedroom, full updated kitchen, spacious living area, and basement and attic area. the 2 car garage has a full walk-up attic. storage/workout space is in abundance. the showcase barn has been meticulously renovated with a new roof, replacement windows, and electric and water service have recently been brought in. the ground adjacent has been cleared as this owner began plans for a paddock as well as added space for loads of parking or a horse trailer turn around. the barn can be adapted as your imagination allows. 2 of the 4 fireplaces have been relined (2020) and are in working order. 2 zones of central air conditioning were installed in 2020. the septic system was also recently replaced. there are so many areas from which to enjoy the beautiful vistas including the outdoor stone fireplace and patio. there's even a child's nature trail tucked in the woods. this owner began plans to expand and renovate the kitchen before pandemic and work changes created the need for relocation. their loss is your gain as kitchen plans can be shared. this is an idyllic home and location within 5-10 minutes of washington crossing, i-295 access, the shopping and restaurants in quaint newtown boro, and in the acclaimed council rock school district. seller can accommodate a quick settlement if desired.
