FIRE CREEK FARM. Two separate homes, a cathedral-like barn, a four-car garage/workshop and a gorgeous pool are the hallmarks of this one-of-a-kind property, with a provenance reaching back to the original William Penn Land Grant of 1681. The stone main house features five bedrooms, four and half baths, wide-width pumpkin pine floors throughout, and a multitude of unique and historic details, including a bee-hive wood oven, a hidden root cellar, a working antique well-pump, a spacious sunporch, a solarium overlooking the pool and much more. On the other end of the property, beyond the garage and barn, is the second home with its own drive, a brand-new deck overlooking a private garden, a spacious kitchen, four bedrooms and two full baths. It’s the perfect spot for guests, extended family, a caretaker, or even a reliable source of rental income. The pictures of the three-story barn do a much better job of capturing its grandeur than we could ever accomplish with words, but it’s good to remember that it’s been the setting for many a memorable party (including at least two weddings). A sizable portion has been carved out to create a fully insulated studio space, with soaring ceilings and incredible natural light. The barn’s lower level includes multiple stalls for farm animals and additional storage. Hidden on 10 lush acres with mature specimen trees, a stream, and access to a natural pond, the property is thoroughly private, yet it’s just ten minutes to New Hope, Newtown, Tyler State Park and nearby commuter routes to Philadelphia, Princeton, and New York City. A genuinely beautiful estate, and a rare opportunity to own a true piece of Bucks County history.
