You might recognize our cozy home from HGTV's House Hunters! If you're looking for walkability to Doylestown's bars, restaurants, museums and shopping, but still want privacy on a quiet street, this is the house for you. Our vintage home, built in 1858, has been updated to include a beautiful family room featuring a wood-burning stove that opens to an eat-in kitchen perfect for spending time with friends. Only 15 minutes from Peddlers Village and New Hope, and just 1 hour north of Philadelphia.
Our home was built in 1858. The front living room is original to the house, and the beautiful old floorboards are proof. The house bears a sign featuring the name of the original owner. Our house was featured on House Hunters in November 2016, although the episode shows the house before a major addition and renovation. There is a large and comfortable family room with a wood-burning stove and powder room and laundry room on the first floor. The kitchen is bright and sunny and perfect for spending time together enjoying a meal at the large island or kitchen table. Upstairs, you'll find a large master bedroom with a beautiful bathroom, featuring a sliding barn door and dual vanities, as well as a large shower with a stone floor. There are two other cozy bedrooms, one with a queen bed and ample closet space, as well as a charming bedroom original to the house's 1858 construction with a twin bed. An air mattress will be provided for a 6th sleeping space. There are built-in wall units for heat and AC in the downstairs family room and upstairs master bedroom. The middle bedroom has a window AC unit in warmer months. The front original bedroom has a window fan and another fan to keep the room cool. There is an additional large full bathroom with a tub shower on the second floor. Charming historical details can be found throughout the house, including a pie staircase and original built-in cabinets and hard wood floors.
Guests will have access to the entire house, with the exception of a private master closet.
My wife Dana or I will meet our guests at the house to check in and check out. We stay locally and are available to help with any needs or questions our guests may have.
We have a 40 gallon fish tank in our kitchen that has many interesting fish. If you are staying longer than a night, we hope you wouldn't mind feeding the fish- it's a simple task that takes less than a minute.
Our home has a washer and dryer which are available to our guests, as well as a Keurig and many varieties of tea. We have a smart TV which offers basic cable and access to our Netflix account. If you have your own membership with Hulu or Amazon Prime, you can access that via our TV as well.
Please be considerate of our home! It is our primary residence and we treasure it. We are happy to have you enjoy it as well, but ask that you treat it with love. Please refrain from smoking inside. Be aware of our neighbors if you decide to hang out outside and keep the volume to a minimum if it's past 11pm. If you choose to use the wood-burning stove, please let us know ahead of time so that we can set aside firewood for you.
