  • Description

    The pleasures of a historical house are magnified when the home is in a one-of-a-kind setting. The Vicarage, just outside the village center of charming Carversville, is situated above the Paunacussing Creek. The property~s gardens and grounds were featured on the New Hope Historical Society~s annual garden tour and also have been the site of numerous celebrations and a few weddings (hence ~The Vicarage~ property name.) Its 2.7 acres are a mix of terraced, hardscaped outdoor spaces, including a heated in-ground pool and cabana, and carefully chosen perennials, flowering shrubs and mature trees that awaken each spring. An arched walking bridge over the creek is the perfect vantage point to note the carefully laid stones that formalize the edges of the waterway. Occasionally a few ducklings and their mama sail over a gentle waterfall in the stream. The house, which may have been a settler~s cottage originally, has grown several times over its 255-year history to become a very comfortable residence brimming with character in its moldings and millwork, windows, doors and exposed beam ceilings. A few important highlights include pristine, wide-plank pine floors, freshly refinished; an updated, eat-in kitchen outfitted with Living Quarters cabinetry, newer appliances and a bank of windows behind the sink looking out to the creek. It is one of the most pleasant views a dishwasher could ask for. A four-season sunroom off the kitchen overlooks patios and gardens. Just off the kitchen, the first-floor full bath with oversized steam shower is finished bottom to top in Carrera marble and subway tile. A sitting room, which could be used as a bedroom, a formal dining room with fireplace, and living room with walk-in fireplace, complete the main first-floor living spaces. Two staircases lead to the second-floor bedrooms, a series of unique and good-sized quarters, along with a recently updated hall bath. The main suite bedroom has superb views of the rear grounds through its wide bank of windows, and its full bath is finished in Carrera marble and a beautiful console sink. The basement has been waterproofed and provides a laundry area along with plenty of storage. The house was recently outfitted with a propane-fired whole-house generator. A barn can park numerous cars and with its loft has additional possibilities. As a Bucks County home combining 19th-century details with sensitive updates and magazine-worth gardens, The Vicarage is a much-loved retreat. Walkable to Carversville village center with general store and tavern and convenient to Doylestown, New Hope and New Jersey.
