Circa 1850, this stunning, twice expanded farmhouse offers old-world charm with modern updates and amenities. Both the original home and the first addition were constructed with brick and the exterior was likely finished with stucco sometime in the early to mid-1900’s. The exterior of the second addition features James Hardie siding for the attractiveness and longevity that a home like this deserves.
This amazing home is set back roughly two hundred feet from the road on a ¾-acre lot. No farmhouse is complete without a porch and this one has two! You will enter the home from the front porch through a lovely glass front door with sidelites. The living room features a stone fireplace with wood mantle and refreshed hardwood floors. The centrally located dining room provides access to the study with built-in bookcases and recessed lighting. The adjoining foyer with exposed brick provides access to a convenient 1st-floor powder room, and entry to the gourmet kitchen where the chef is the center of attention! This incredible kitchen features a granite island with gas cooktop surrounded by bar seating, custom cherry cabinets, locally milled broad-plank wood floors, quartz counters, double oven, large farm sink, and a coffee bar. The kitchen provides access to a wraparound, screened in porch towards the front of the house, a patio towards the back, and a second stairway to the expansive primary suite on the 2nd floor.
The primary suite includes vaulted ceilings, a private slate balcony, wet bar, large bathroom with ample storage, stall shower, radiant floor, and private water closet. The primary suite connects with the rest of the 2nd floor through a dressing/sitting room with generous closet space. A cozy second bedroom is located at the back of the house next to a charming 3-piece bath with hardwood floors, wainscoting, and shower over tub. A larger third bedroom is situated in the original section of the house towards the front. Head upstairs to a partial 3rd floor for a fourth bedroom and generous attic storage.
A renovated 1850’s smokehouse awaits outside. This smokehouse was lovingly converted into a detached home-office with mini-split HVAC, electric, and internet. Flanking the smokehouse are two patios including a large paver patio behind the smokehouse and a concrete patio connecting the rear foyer, the smokehouse, driveway, and a two-story barn with electric, internet, and endless possibilities.
This wonderful farmhouse was converted from oil to gas in 2017 with the installation of a high efficiency Weil-Mclain boiler including summer/winter hookup. It boasts replacement windows throughout, 4-zone heat and 2-zone air conditioning, 1st floor laundry, everything Upper Gwynedd Township and North Penn Schools have to offer, and it is simply overflowing with character and charm.
