**UPDATE 3/15/23 376 DAVID DRIVE IS THE FEATURED HOUSE OF THE WEEK IN THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER** Set on over 3 acres surrounded by lush greenery and embraced in nature, 376 David Drive can provide you with the serenity you need, serving as your private retreat. Most people comment that they never knew this home existed! You have the modern convenience of being close to major routes to get to NYC, Philadelphia, the Poconos and the shore while soaking in the bucolic scenes of Bucks County. Historic homes and land are in limited supply and new construction home materials pale in comparison with the solid stone masonry craftsmanship of yesteryear - not to mention SOLID PUMPKIN PINE WOOD FLOORS with exquisite details at every turn, offered in this historic gem. Not just anyone can own a home built in the 1700’s in Bucks County, wouldn’t it be great to own a piece of history - did I mention there’s a date stone of 1792?! 376 David Drive would be the ultimate entertainment venue, the place friends and family want to visit often. You would be the talk of the town for sure! In the Spring, watch as nature unfolds its beauty around you; in the Summer, enjoy relaxing by the pool; in the Fall, sit around the fire pit and jump in a pile of freshly fallen leaves and in the Winter, look out the Kitchen window to view the frozen pond, sit by one of the fireplaces to get cozy and after snow has fallen, embrace the Winter wonderland around you, providing a priceless backdrop for holiday photos. This 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath stone and stucco farmhouse features gleaming pumpkin pine floors, beautiful fireplaces, each with its own special charm (especially the walk-in fireplace in the Dining Room), windows with deep sills, built-ins, storage upon storage which is rare in a home this age; several Dutch doors; a wide rocking chair porch on the side of the home; a MODERN KITCHEN (renovated in 2018) with granite counters, stainless steel appliances, RECLAIMED WOOD BEAMS and space for a small kitchen table, a large recreation room with wood-burning stove and an enlarged and RENOVATED FULL BATHROOM (2018) with EXPOSED STONE WALL, jetted tub, shower and dual vanities. The home offers 12 zones of heat and a NEW HEATER (2020) and hot water heater (2020). Throughout this historic beauty, enjoy taking time to notice MANY ARCHITECTURAL DELIGHTS - the antique doors and hardware, trap door to the basement, hand-crafted built-ins, pie staircase to the second floor, ornamental molding and the incredible stone work. The property includes a fenced in-ground concrete pool (new pump and filter 2020) and several outbuildings: a 2-story barn (25’ x 25’) with a new roof, a covered carport with wide stalls (which we were told used to be horse stalls), a storage area and a Spring House. All outbuildings are conveyed in “as is” condition. Beyond the Spring House is a stately 350+ year old Sycamore tree, providing yet another rarity. The basement runs the length of the home (minus the Recreation Room) and that’s where you’ll find the utilities. You can access the basement via the trap door near the Powder Room and through the Bilco doors on the side of the home. There is a walk-up, floored attic with a 65’ x 15’ main section and 25’ x 18’ smaller section to use for storage or investigate into potentially creating more living space. Could this be Bucks County’s best kept secret? Schedule your private tour today!
