Just Listed: Gothic Revival Farmhouse Outside Doylestown
This classic farmhouse in Mechanicsville dates to 1900, but this highly polished gem could pass for a century older than that.
Central Bucks County contains some of the loveliest houses in the region, from the woodsy contemporaries of Buckingham to the Colonial charmers of Doylestown.
This handsome Gothic Revival house for sale belongs in that company. Located outside Doylestown in the village of Mechanicsville, it has been very well maintained and updated where it counts.
It also retains every inch of its turn-of-the-19th-century charm.
Oops! Make that turn-of-the-20th-century charm.
Both on the outside and on the inside, this house looks the part of an early 1800s farmhouse.
Wide-plank pumpkin pine floors all throughout the house. Deep windowsills. Exposed stone walls.
A Franklin stove in the living room.
Built-in corner china closets in the formal dining room.
Just about everything about this house says “1800.”
But it’s actually a century younger than that: it was built in 1900.
Some parts of this house, however, are much younger than that.
Like the kitchen, which got renovated recently with professional-quality appliances and granite countertops.
Or the primary bedroom on the third floor, where stone walls and wood beams mix it up with modern trim.
Or the Pennsylvania bluestone patio in the back.
All these things put together make this Doylestown Gothic Revival house for sale a historic gem with modern comforts.
