1801 Old Forty Foot Road

Harleysville, PA 19438

Picture the old sea captains’ homes that dot the New England coastline you will have a sense of what awaits you at Forty Foot Road. Although the rolling surf is nowhere to be found, the array of rooms, stairs, nooks crannies is a feast for your eyes. As you meander through this treasure trove of history dating back to 1802, the first thing you will notice is the abundance of 20” deep window sills found in every room of the house. Narrow width pumpkin pine floors line the entrance way the large reception parlor to the right. This room has exposed wood beams, a hand carved mantle wood burning fireplace, five sets of deep windows several places where portraits of relatives from generations ago are quite at home. Moving across the entrance way into an open cove is a winding staircase fitted with hand wrought iron railings that take you to the second floor of the original house. This floor houses a master bedroom, a large bath a second bedroom, which could be used as a sitting room or nursery. A clever buyer may consider utilizing all of the rooms on this floor to comprise a master suite served by front and back staircases. There is ample closet space in the master and with wide pumpkin pine floors, oriental carpets look spectacular when the sun pokes through more deep windows. The front rear staircases will take you to the 3rdfloor where 4 rooms can be combined in several ways to give you any number of bedrooms or storage space there is a large bathroom with tub/shower. Returning to the first floor front entrance and moving towards the back of the original structure, you pass through a formal dining room and into a kitchen best described as “country French.” A six burner professional gas range is built into a center island topped with African granite. Custom stained cabinetry built in appliances combined with overhead skylights give you the feeling that you are cooking in an outside garden. One wall of the kitchen is exposed brickwork that once was the exterior of the home. Standing at the single bay stainless farm sink you look out on to a brick patio and gardens that could easily be growing your favorite herbs for your next meal. Adjoining the kitchen, there is a sunroom – the perfect space for a croissant coffee or set it up as a bar at cocktail time while the chef works his/her magic in the kitchen without missing a beat with the guests. If all these rooms are not enough to pique your interest, pass through the sunroom and enter a newer addition of an enormous library/family room. At the far end of the room, a wide paneled door conceals a third set of stairs taking you to a second level master bedroom suite large enough to accommodate a king size bed and plenty of furniture. A full bath, laundry and pantry complete the first floor. 2.26 acres are landscaped with brick walkways, a meandering creek and a large in-ground pool. With some attention to details, this rolling hillside could be on the next garden house tour. This home should be on your list of must-sees!
