    Description

    The John Fell House, circa 1733, is a one-of-a-kind Doylestown Borough property that offers a tremendous opportunity to own a piece of history on a sprawling estate-like compound. Over two acres of park-like land and set back down a long driveway, this property was reportedly the location of George Washington's headquarters when the Continental Army camped at Doylestown in the summer of 1778. The antique stone manor house retains all of the charm and character of classic Bucks County, without sacrificing modern amenities thanks to a 21st century full scale renovation. Finely landscaped grounds are full of natural light in the mostly Southern-facing front yard. An exposed stone entry hall greets you at the primary entrance on the manor house, leading to the large updated kitchen featuring a 14' cathedral ceiling, 6+2 Viking professional range with double oven, side by side SubZero fridge, and plenty of storage. A main-level master suite was envisioned in the adjacent keeping room, with a full bathroom roughed in and ready for finishing, this space could also lend itself well to an au pair or live-in help and has a second floor loft above. The Southern-facing sunken living room room makes a great library and has also served as the formal dining room for the home, overlooking the grounds. The original section of the stone home retains the classic walk-in 9' fireplace complete with beehive oven and gate arm hardware. Upstairs you will find two additional bedrooms, both nearly the length of the original home, with wide plank floors and exposed beams. A 3 bedroom guest house is large enough to be split into an upstairs pool house and downstairs home office or guest suite, and oversized 4 car garage with workshop loft backs up to the in-ground pool. Picture perfect down to the original stone spring house, truly a once-in-a-generation opportunity in the Borough.
