You simply have to experience this one in person! A hidden gem in the heart of Doylestown Borough, this 1870s Victorian home captures the charm of the period while incorporating many high-end and modern updates of today, the epitome of old meets new. In addition to the charm of the home, the location can’t be beat; only 1.5 blocks from the bustling restaurants and shops of State and Main streets. Enter through an arched foyer which leads into the formal dining room that features a large stained glass window, curved wall, and antique chandelier. Continue through a second arched entryway to the large open kitchen with island, wrap around granite counter, pantry, heated travertine tile floors, breakfast nook, and a back wall with windows that include gorgeous stained glass for a pop of color. Also on this floor you will find a powder room and one of several common living spaces – a living room with a fireplace. The second floor boasts an oversized primary bedroom suite with fireplace, walk-in closets, and new English Pub hardwood flooring. The adjacent primary bath stuns with a double vanity, dual head walk-in shower with body jets and bench, and a separate jetted tub that looks up to the stained-glass turret. Two additional bedrooms and another full bath are also on this level. Don’t miss the hidden gems; laundry chutes and radiant heat floors in both bathrooms. Journey up an additional flight of stairs to the finished, well-lit, bright and airy third level. This level features a large fourth bedroom and office with brand new natural hardwood flooring. There are limitless opportunities for this space. The current owners use this space as a library/game room and home gym. It would also be ideal as a playroom for children. To round out this distinctive experience, visit yet another common living space, the finished basement. Here you will find the one-of-a-kind bar area and rec room with fireplace. Many luxury details including exposed brick walls, built-in light features, and decorative stamped concrete flooring with radiant heat making this area a cozy spot for all ages to enjoy. The basement is also home to a bd; bath, laundry room and storage area with built-in industrial shelving. The exterior appointments also deliver character and charm. From the front, notice the wonderful wrap around Mahogany porch, beautiful period doors and herringbone brick sidewalk. Drive around to the back where you will find a shared alley that provides access to private parking that can fit up to 7 cars. Electricity is already installed to the driveway in case you want to add a charging station. Current owners added professional landscaping to create a private backyard retreat. There’s a large Pennsylvania field stone and brick patio, built in gas feed for a grill, mahogany deck, lush plantings, well-manicured lawn and a solar powered lamppost. Serenity on a tree-lined side street, yet walkable to all that Doylestown Borough has to offer; the award winning schools of the Central Bucks School District, the Y, and the bus and rail station are just a steps away. Rated in USA Today’s Best Small Town Cultural Scene in America, there’s always something fun to do! Just over a 90 minute drive to NYC and under an hour to either Philadelphia or Princeton. Make the aesthetics, the space and the lifestyle yours today! Other notable features include; Marvin windows, energy efficient 3M tinted windows on top level and in primary bedroom, integrated whole house sound system, intercom, alarm system, central vac, four zoned temperature control with new air conditioning unit in 2018. Kitchen amenities include Wolf 47” range with double oven, griddle, grill and commercial vent, Bosch dishwasher, pot filler, pop up mixer shelf, trash compartment in island. The restoration boasts period light fixtures and push button switches with dimmers all with updated electric, and an operating dumbwaiter that makes laundry a cinch!
