    Description

    Beautiful Stone Farmhouse Circa 1690 - Truly one of the oldest stone homes in the country! As part of an original 100 acre land deed from William Penn, the property had originally encompassed much of Langhorne Borough, including the current Middletown Country Club across the street. Sometimes referred to as The Huddleston House, it's the first residence built by Henry Huddleston, Sr upon his arrival from Yorkshire, England. Lovingly cared for and enhanced over the multitude of generations since, the home now proudly stands as a 3 bedroom/3 bath charming antique. Character abounds in every nook of this bright & cheery home, from the remarkably deep-set windows, original random width flooring, period millwork & hardware - much of it original, pie stairs and 4 decorative fireplaces strategically positioned throughout. Upon entering the front parlor or formal living room, the floor plan lays out nicely before guests - leading them directly towards the full width rear sunroom with walls of glass overlooking the private oasis-like backyard. Both the sunroom and living room open up to the formal dining room with its rough-hewn beamed ceiling, full wall stone fireplace & direct access to the newly updated country kitchen. Crisp white cabinetry, S/S appliances and black granite counters handsomely frame this window filled space, with relaxing views of the property's own pristine spring fed creek & the peaceful gardens, as well as the neighboring golf course. The more private portion of the home begins to unfold on the 2nd floor, accessed from the original pie stairs that fan out towards either an en-suite guest bedroom w/half bath or the multi-room main bedroom retreat. The master bedroom has its own sitting room, which serves currently as an inviting office/library, and a nicely updated full bath complete with whirlpool tub. Up one more level from here is the wonderfully finished attic/garret space that accommodates a generously scaled 3rd bedroom. The lowest level of the home is quite functional for a property that pre-dates the founding of our country by 86 years! Down here is a decorative stone fireplace w/original beehive oven in the partially finished "family room" space, a full bath, a complete laundry room, ample utility & storage space, as well as direct at-grade access for the driveway & side yard. Outdoors the owners have recently incorporated a wonderfully inviting stone water feature into the newly laid stone patio that overlooks the open lawns, gardens & little stone bridge crossing over your very own spring fed creek. Two outbuildings, one a garage and the other a workshop add flexibility to the property's appeal, being one of the largest parcels in the Boro at just under .7 acres! Both outbuildings have electric, so perhaps with a little imagination, the workshop becomes an artist studio; a man-cave; a she-shed; or even a luxury chicken coop?? This wonderfully private & quiet setting, with preserved land across the rear neighbors, is just down the road from the community farm co-op where vegetable garden plots can be leased for $50 a season, (2020 season). Some of the updates undertaken by the current caretakers of this historical gem are: Newer PELLA Windows throughout the main house, Newer Roof on the House (?08), Granite Counter Tops, Remodeled Master Bath, Newer Roof on both the Garage & Workshop. If you appreciate antique charm, unspoiled character & today's conveniences smartly blended into a unique expression of historical appreciation - you should see this home! MATTERPORT 3D Tour is Now Available in Link Icon Above. FLOOR PLANS are Coming Soon!
