Jawdropper of the Week: To the Manor Born in Pipersville, $995K
Once upon a time there was a wonderfully built manor, nestled on four magnificent acres of woods and gardens in the peaceful comfort of Tinicum Township’s Pipersville section. It sat high above the road and overlooked the scenic beauty of backwoods Bucks County. The classic English Tudor had many elements that made it the true beauty of its time; from the stunning woodwork and stonework, to the stucco walls and finishes that pulled it together.
As the house grew older, its owners felt it needed some updates to bring this home into the modern age.
The owners got to work expanding and transforming the kitchen into a wonderfully modern masterpiece, adding top-of-the-line features such as Calacatta marble in the shower, vanities and floors in every bathroom in the home, and renovating the one-bedroom carriage house as well.
However, the home’s original bones stayed true to character. The classic cherry hardwood floors were polished, as were the matching cherry coffered ceiling and built-ins in the entertainment room. The wonderfully crafted beamed ceilings and woodwork that decorate the great room and dining area remain emblematic of the home’s stately glory, and the walls of glass in the great room give you unrestricted views of the beauty of nature right outside.
While the description of this home might seem as if it were but a fairy tale, this home is for real, and for under $1 million, no less.
