This classic Bucks County Victorian farmhouse, expanded and renovated with thoughtfully planned additions plus modern amenities and styling, is truly a one-of-a-kind property! The new front entry unveils a long great room which wraps around a dramatic, open gourmet kitchen, obviously created by a real cook with professional design sensibility. It features top-name appliances; gorgeous soapstone counters & backsplash complete with soapstone farm sink and a handy utility sink, both with bronze hardware; custom cabinetry with loads of storage; skylights and ceiling fan. The great room also offers plentiful seating; a partially-exposed beam ceiling; an original, multi-wall painted mural based on historical references by one of the area's leading current artists; as well as one of the home's three gas fireplaces with a coordinating soapstone surround and mantle; and, finally, access to a handsome, roomy deck for entertaining and relaxing. Next to the great room, there is a step-down area that conceals the laundry area and an attractive powder room. Beyond the great room, you enter what was the original, circa-1863, one-room farmhouse, currently occupied by the dining room/library that features built-in shelves, another gas fireplace & exposed wood beams. Upstairs (added later in the 19th century), are two generously sized bedrooms plus a small room now used as an office that could easily serve as a nursery, play area or for storage. The second floor has a full bath with linen closet and a stairway to a wonderfully large, third-story attic just brimming with renovation opportunities. Perhaps the most unique renovation/addition to this unique home was accomplished by joining what had been the closest of the property's two, two-stall barns to the main house and then turning the barn's first floor into a grandly spacious master bedroom suite with a partially vaulted ceiling, plenty of windows, a third fireplace, a roomy full bath with storage and a professionally outfitted, walk-in closet. A spiral staircase takes you up to the former second-story, loft area that now serves as a light-filled painting and design studio. The second barn, currently used for storage, represents unlimited renovation possibilities. This singular home sits on just over 1/2 acre of land creating a private park-like setting, with informal, English-style gardens, mature trees and plantings. The Plumsteadville/Pipersville location is in the desirable Central Bucks School District.
