Just a few minutes from Doylestown Borough, Stone Well Manor is a classical, inviting Bucks County farmstead complete with stone and frame farmhouse, guest house, meetinghouse-style garage and stone barn ruins surrounding raised-bed gardens that produce flowers, herbs and vegetables. Once part of a 500-acre tract of land with strong ties to the local Quaker community and meetinghouse, the property is now a very manageable 2.63 acres. The home~s original section, with its big stone well still located to the left of the entrance, dates to the 1780s. This cozy entry room has dimensions and features common to early settler~s cottages that once were customary to our area. Note the stone cooking fireplace, exposed stone walls, beamed ceiling and wide-plank wood floors. The adjacent formal living room, originally two rooms, is an exercise in symmetry with fireplaces on each side, matching front doors with transoms and antique hardware, wood floors and a simple, relaxed feeling. The big country kitchen with dining area is the heart of the home. This sky lit, vaulted-ceiling room includes a large island with prep sink with disposal and a restaurant-grade range ready to serve everyday needs and turn out elaborate meals for a crowd. The exposed timbers and stone walls, window/pass-through to the living room, and window-lined dining area add to its appeal. A wood stove will warm this space nicely. Off the kitchen is a laundry area and a sitting room that looks out to a patio, the perfect spot to catch a nap or read a book. Just beyond is additional living space ~ a guest wing, if you like, with a living room, two bedrooms and a full bath. The main bedroom suite is on the second floor. This area features a sitting room with an electric fireplace, sleeping quarters and a large bath with a slipper back soaking tub, stall shower and double vanity. An additional bedroom and plenty of storage (this home has a remarkable amount of storage for its age) are on the third floor. The guest house, showcasing traditional pegged construction, wood and stone floors and sliding barn-style doors, is privately situated from the main house and has open, comfortably scaled living space, a separate bedroom, sleeping loft and full bath. There is plenty of covered and off-street parking available. The gardens, a favorite retreat for the present owner, are done in a low-maintenance, raised-bed style. Located just a few minutes~ drive from Doylestown Borough, Stone Well Manor is the perfect option for full-time or weekend residence, convenient to grocery stores, restaurants, museums yet still connected to the rural heritage upon which the area was built.
