Location: Ottsville, Pennsylvania
Built circa 1825, this historic-designated (but without restrictions!) German farmstead in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, has undergone a “museum quality” restoration, boasting heaps of original details and Colonial charm. Unique to southeastern Pennsylvania, the old stone house measures 2,232 square feet and sits on over 14 acres of land and includes various outbuildings.
Featuring gorgeous woodwork like “random width” floors, deep window sills, exposed beams, door frames, and winding staircases, as well as blazing “walk-in” fireplaces, the three-bed-two-bath feels cozy and welcoming and offers plenty of inviting communal spaces. Each room has its own color scheme, whether dark forest green in the living room, tan in the den, grey in the kitchen, and various shades of blue in the bedrooms.
Elsewhere on the property are a frame bank dairy barn with workshop, a two-story summer kitchen with fireplace, outhouse, corn crib, and wagon shed. The site also comprises meadows, junipers, and other mature trees. Located at 721 Headquarters Road in Ottsville, it’s offered at $965,000.
