Bird in Hand

"Bird-in-Hand" is the oldest frame home presently standing in Pennsylvania. Built in 1686, it boasts a richly documented history and has been impeccably preserved with seven fireplaces, detailed millwork, random-width wood floors and open-beam ceilings.

In keeping with the historic aspect of the building, in 2008, this marvelous home was methodically updated with a chef's kitchen, incorporating inset cabinets, an Aga stove and Sub-Zero refrigeration. Two modern baths were recently added; one en suite for the master bedroom on the second floor, and another en suite for the third-floor bedroom. Four of the five bedrooms are graced with massive fieldstone fireplaces. The master suite is outfitted with double sinks, a steam shower and bidet. Laundry facilities are located on the second floor.

The basement, which has been renovated to accommodate a seven-foot ceiling height with a newly poured cement floor, offers excellent storage and a 10-foot-deep brick baker's oven in the wall.

There is a separate one-bedroom apartment; two-car garage with studio; additional parking and a potting shed. This spectacular piece of American history has all been beautifully landscaped with perennial gardens, which are entirely embraced by a handcrafted picket fence. The property is zoned for both residential and/or commercial use, a front-row seat in Newtown Borough with endless possibilities. Your new in-town retreat doesn't get more Bucks County than this!

Owner is a PA licensed realtor.
