Location: Erwinna, Pennsylvania
This antique stone home in Bucks County, Pennsylvania enchants from the outset—not only is it located on Permanent School Road (which sounds either like a dream or a nightmare, depending), to access it one must cross a wide wooden bridge.
Built in 1781 and set on six private acres, the carefully restored, two-story Colonial retains much of its original architecture, including exposed, rough-hewn beams, wide-plank floor boards, multiple wood-burning fireplaces, and other period details. The main house, measuring 1,824 square feet, features two bedrooms and a bath, spacious living room, updated eat-in kitchen with soap stone counters, and built-in shelving.
But that’s not all. The property also includes a restored stone barn with slate roof, a separate outbuilding that is now a gym, an “impeccably restored corn crib,” full guest house underneath which could accommodate a studio, workshop, or garage, and gorgeous outdoor spaces from which to enjoy idyllic country views.
These include peony gardens, rolling hills, a bluestone terrace surrounded by boxwoods, and a saltwater pool. Sited at, as we mentioned, 44 Permanent School Road in Erwinna, the property is listed for $1,100,000. Take a look.
