3136 BURNT HOUSE HILL RD, DOYLESTOWN, PA 18902
5296 sqft (492 sqm)
One of the best barn conversions in Bucks County! Design concept and implementation by renowned Princeton architect, Rolf W Bauhan . Appropriate adaptive use of unique house parts gleaned from period residences being taken down when the Blue Route was begun. The result, complimented by recent updating, has resulted in an astounding residence. Set near Buckingham's Burnt House Hill bridge, adjacent and across from beautiful historic restorations, this 200-year-old, 4-story residence offers 5,500 square feet of warmth, character and romance. Amenities on the 2 acres include a 1,000 square foot ranch cottage with fireplace, a 2-story, 2-bay carriage house, a large heated shop building and a drive-in corn crib. The well pump room, once a fortified bomb shelter, makes a great wine storage room. The house has three fireplaces, stone walls, exposed beams, marble-floored baths, wood floors and lots of French doors. It has a Buderus furnace with 8 zones and propane cooking in the recently renovated dine-in kitchen with marble counters, Thermador gas cooktop, Sub-Zero refrigerator, gas and electric ovens and hand painted floor. Library shelves have rolling ladder; mezzanine has custom Gothic railing. Exterior features include 900 gallon Koi pond, iron fencing, courtyard, covered terrace, and stone stairways.
