Just Listed: Renewed Condo in Doylestown
Want to live in the heart of one of the region’s most charming, lively and historic towns? Your very elegant ship has just sailed in.
The Greater Philadelphia region abounds in charming suburbs with very walkable town centers. These places actually make it possible for those who want both urbane sophistication and small-town charm to get both in a conveniently located package.
Doylestown, the Bucks County seat, is one of those very charming, very lively, very walkable communities. It’s also very rich in history: It traces its origins to a tavern established by William Doyle in 1745 where the road connecting Swede’s Ford (now Norristown) with Coryell’s Ferry (now New Hope) crossed the one connecting Philadelphia with Easton. Today we know these roads as Routes 202 and 611 respectively, and both now bypass the center of the borough.
Their original routes, however, meet about a block and a half from the mid-19th-century townhouse where you will find this Doylestown renovated condo for sale.
This townhouse was converted into condominiums not too long ago, and as the pictures should make clear, the conversion produced residences that are at once very modern and respectful of the house’s historic bones.
This condo takes up the entire second floor of the building. Up front is an open-plan main living area with living, dining and cooking spaces.
The living room has a heat-producing electric fireplace and two tall French-door windows that open onto Juliet balconies. The adjacent dining area is marked by a contemporary yet classic chandelier.
Behind the dining area is a totally modern kitchen with plenty of cabinet space, top-drawer stainless-steel appliances that include a beverage fridge and built-in ice maker, bar seating and an island, all with quartz countertops.
A hallway leads from here past the powder room to the second bedroom, which has an en-suite bath. Just past this bedroom is the first of two flex spaces. This one has a built-in study desk and cabinets that allow you to use it as a home office while at the same time enjoying it as a den.
The second flex space, up a few steps from the first, has lots of built-in white cabinets and a dressing table. This could serve as a large closet or as general storage space. The laundry is located next to this space.
Finally, in back, you will find a spacious primary bedroom that gets plenty of light from windows on three sides.
It has its own walk-in closet and a primary bathroom with a quartz-topped double vanity, freestanding medicine cabinet with linen storage,. a glass-enclosed custom tile shower and a radiant heated floor.
But perhaps the nicest amenity this condo offers is its location. This is what you see from those living-room balconies:
Yes, this Doylestown renovated condo for sale is located directly across Court Street from the old (1960) Bucks County Court House, which now serves as the county administration building, and the Korean War Veterans Park in front of it. You will be able to enjoy free concerts in the summer thanks to the musicians who play in the park. Plus, you’re surrounded by fine dining, boutique shopping, and a number of cultural attractions. And your unit sits in the Residences at Court Street, a secure building with elevator access to your floor.
Talk about living in the heart of it all. And in such style too!
