Description

Welcome to Broadview Farm! Nestled in the tranquility of Buckingham Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, this timeless Federal-style home dating back to circa 1730 offers a retreat from the ordinary. Set on 10.9 acres, this remarkable property boasts the main house, an icehouse, a pool with pool house and a barn featuring 3 separate apartments. Surrounded by specimen trees and vibrant flowering bushes, including forsythias and enchanting magnolia trees, the setting is truly park-like. As you step into the 2700+ sq. foot plaster over stone farmhouse, the spacious rooms greet you with warm Pumpkin Pine and Oak flooring and the light is spectacular. Many original features remain including built-ins and hardware along with wide windowsills adding charm and character throughout. The bright and cheerful kitchen is the heart of the home with a charming walk-in fireplace and spacious enough for a grand table or an island. Other built-in cabinetry and storage space abound. The living room features a wood-burning fireplace and cozy seating area along with a more formal dining area for entertaining. Double doors open into the cozy family room - a superb place for reading a good book. Conveniently located on the first floor is a laundry/mud room that provides outside access. A full bathroom with tiled, steam shower completes the main level. Upstairs, three spacious bedrooms with wood flooring await. Each room offers plenty of light. Two bedrooms, one being the primary, offer wood-burning fireplaces. The third bedroom has an ensuite bath with shower. The hall bath has a cast iron clawfoot tub reminiscent of the Victorian era. The third floor offers 2 additional bedrooms with a center room for lounging or use as a computer area. All pine floors under the carpeting. There are 5 heating zones, and a new oil furnace was installed in 2023 with a transferable warranty. The whole house automatic generator is serviced by natural gas, and gas ports were installed with the forethought that any appliances or utilities could easily be converted. The grounds surrounding are magnificent, with stone walls, wrought iron railings and gate, mature landscaping, flagstone walkways and patio areas and room for outdoor entertainment. Above the back door a nostalgic emblem harkens back to yesteryear, signifying the payment of fire insurance and ensuring assistance from the fire department. Both the pool house and attached screened porch offer a welcome retreat for lunch or dinner parties or simply relaxing with a good book and a glass of your favorite wine. The small garden shed beyond the pool house is adorable with cedar shake roof. The barn has at least 3 stalls that would accommodate horses or other livestock with plenty of fenced pasture. 5 miles to either New Hope or Doylestown, 7 miles to Newtown. Easy access to major commuter routes to NY, NJ and Philadelphia. Award winning Central Bucks School District or enjoy one of the many prestigious private schools in the area. This property epitomizes the quintessential Bucks County lifestyle--schedule your private showing today.
