520 Old Philadelphia Pike

Douglassville, PA 19518

3BR, 1 BA stucco farmhouse, circa 1850, set on 9.73 acres. The house features a classic " L-shaped" design and is constructed of Pennsylvania red sandstone and plastered in lime render. The front porch, capped by a newly installed white cedar shingle roof and trimmed in custom crown molding, invites you to a handcrafted solid wood door, which harkens to Old World European tradition. The home retains all its significant historical details, including period hand waxed floors throughout, two wood stove flues, an operational Walk-In Fireplace, and 19th century cabinets. The large bright LR features period floors, and woodwork, as well as, deep window sills. The formal DR, which is adjacent to the Kitchen, is perfect for hosting friends and family for dinner. The walls are covered half length in wall paper that was chosen to match fragments of the original wall paper that were discovered during recent restoration. The beautiful Kitchen includes a functional fireplace, original woodwork and period floors. The modern kitchen appliances, including sink and range, are grouped into a spacious central island and the countertops are historically accurate oiled spruce. The full Bath on the Main Level was just remodeled. It is draped in an ornately patterned light blue and white, suggestive of high end wall papers that would have been available during the 1850s. The floor is a rustic deep red terracotta tile that was re-grouted as part of the renovations. Upstairs are three bright rooms each featuring period flooring and details which are currently used as 2 BRs and an adjacent office. However, they could be re-imagined as 3 BRs, one of which would be a walk-through, or 2 BRs and an adjoining nursery. The property has had many recent upgrades and now just awaits your finishing touches to make it a home.
