For the first time in over 50 years one of Doylestown Boro's most exclusive properties is now offered for sale. Just five blocks from the center of town, this grand white house on the hill, offering lush privacy and Antebellum style has the history that today's artisan builders can only replicate. Set on more than 2 sub-dividable acres just up the hill from where Oscar Hammerstein once wrote about beautiful mornings, the views from the wraparound front porch have changed little from those idyllic days. Crossing the threshold, you know history is all around you. Random-width floors were milled from some of this country's first forests, most likely on-site by the builders themselves. The fireplaces, three in all, are surrounded by Mercer's renowned handcrafted tiles. Windows are plentiful, especially in the renovated 21st Century kitchen designed in the Draper style and featuring top-quality appliances as well as a breakfast room expansion, making it an elegant place to entertain and live. Those first floor windows are Marvin 6 x 6 double-hung. When the weather is warm the radiant heat in the kitchen floors is set aside and the dining area spills out to a beautiful brick patio flanked with flowering trees and lush greenery. The second level is also a beautiful combination of new and old and plentiful light; four bedrooms have been updated to accommodate our modern lifestyle; and baths, while still featuring the beauty of claw foot tubs, are relevant to today's on-the-go family. The "upstairs retreat" living area above features another bedroom and bath as well as a great space for video gaming with friends, building with blocks or painting the next great Bucks County masterpiece. Unlike many 19th Century homes, this large estate offers ample storage and modern convenience. While Doylestown has certainly grown over the centuries, walks to the museum district, the best restaurants and everything folks love about "in town living" are still the same. Most everyone in town knows it by look if not by name-and it offers the perfect atmosphere for garden parties, special family gatherings or just secluded afternoons away from it all. Combining the beauty, history and elegance of the Bucks County aesthetics, opportunities to own "real" Doylestown estate homes like this are very, very rare.
