Cozy 18th Century Farmhouse Owned by George Washington's Army Buddy

New, 1 comment


History buffs, get a load of this: This updated farmhouse in Bucks County was once owned by a lieutenant who crossed the Delaware River with none other than George Washington. But wait, there's more: The property also functioned as a dairy farm and was part of a William Penn land grant. Built in 1752, the farmhouse has undergone numerous renovations, including an addition to the main house in the 1930s-1940s. But a sitting room, with its hardwood floors and cozy fireplace, is still part of the original house. There's also a pie-shaped stairwell that leads to the second level, which features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Through the three sets of French doors in the sunroom that opens to the backyard patio, there's a wishing well, koi pond, pool, and pool house.

And then there's the carriage house on the 2-acre property that doubles as a guesthouse. It has a living room with a stone-hearth fireplace, 2 bedrooms, a full kitchen, and a bathroom. (We're getting some serious bed-and-breakfast ideas here.) The asking price of this farmhouse steeped in history is just under $1 million at $959,900.

You can also take a video tour of the property.
