With American roots dating to 1795 and a good measure of English sensibility in its Tech-smart, comfortable finishes, this Solebury residence with guest house has warm appeal as a weekend or full-time home. From its fireplaces to its doors, hardware, windows, floors and moldings, so much character is preserved, yet the next owner gets to enjoy many significant updates, from its recent slate roof, copper downspouts and gutters to a Buderus furnace and slim-line hot-water radiators linked to an App, tankless hot water system and high-velocity central air upstairs and more. Touring the home, it’s easy to see why it was featured in Bucks County Magazine. Twin front parlors each have high ceilings, fireplaces, wide pine floors and tall windows – more formal than a typical Bucks County farmhouse but still relaxed. The formal dining room with faux-painted floor and walk-in fireplace with crane and beehive oven door likely is the original part of the house with four cupboards for your curiosities. Step out from the dining room to a patio and Koi pond. Through a Dutch door is a large country kitchen with a sitting area with woodstove for cozy winter days and access to the patio for summer entertaining. A tile floor, island, 6-burner Fisher & Paykel dual-fuel range with custom copper hood, new refrigerator, copper faucet and a hand-painted farmhouse sink and hand-painted tile backsplash create a charming workspace. Two bonus rooms include a mudroom that could be a comfortable office or art studio with a triple stainless-steel sink, storage and door to a one-car garage. The other room is now a laundry and sewing area. A powder room completes this area. Upstairs the main bedroom with fireplace and hand-painted floor is served by a bathroom offering a bit of British whimsy among its creature comforts: copper-lined clawfoot soaking tub with handheld shower; private water closet with toilet and antique sink; second antique sink basin and heated towel rack. A second bedroom is served by a bath with new glass-enclosed stall shower and corner sink. The third-floor bedroom suite is finished with a full bath with tile stall shower and marble sink base with copper sink. From throughout the house and from its patios, enjoy views of its verdant setting with a peacock house (now used as a summer dining room) and English knot garden. Income producing property via the attached one-bedroom apartment.
