Magnificent Centuries-Old Farmhouse with Renovated Apartment Addition For Sale
It’s better known as the Maplewood Farm Bed & Breakfast these days, but this lush 5-plus-acre Pipersville property has been around for over a century. The main floor, for instance, was constructed in 1792; while the second level was added in 1826. And if the photos are any indication of what the home is actually like in person now, it seems to have taken on that charming air historical buildings tend to acquire over time.
Character-defining features include wood-burning stove, built-in cupboards and bookcases in the main house, two-story bank barn with workshop and storage room, and a second barn with chicken coup and fenced-in pastures leading down to the Neshaminy Creek.
Now, just because it’s an older home doesn’t mean it’s fallen behind on the times amenity-wise. Work has been done on the kitchen, which boasts stainless steel appliances, soapstone counters, and a newly added warming drawer. The slate roof is fairly new, as is the rebuilt porch. A current project is underway to expose the fieldstone on the south side of the main home. The cherry on top of this update extravaganza, though? The recently refurbished, township-approved, 1,600-square-foot attached apartment. (It comes with two bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and provides a “significant monthly rental income.”)
