Description

Did you notice the new price? The Seller has now priced this home where it should be priced! Would you like to own a part of Bucks County History? Well, you have found it! According to the sellers, this property was once owned by Colonel Howard Bary and he established the Buckingham Zoo (AKA Buckingham Zoological Garden) here! Apparently Mr Bary housed animals from Ringling Brothers Circus, among others. Pretty cool! Far from the road, the circa 1920 (likely late 1800's however our history only goes as far as the 20"s) stone manor sits majestically on the 8.5 acre wooded property, surrounded by trees and privacy. (Lot may be sub dividable. Please contact Buckingham Township) Throughout the 3764 sq ft home you will notice the higher ceilings, a treat given this homes age! You will find interior stone walls befitting the period, real solid wood paneling and original wood flooring throughout (and under the carpets except the family room) so the character is in preserved. The light filled family room used to be a paddock with 2 foot stone walls between the house and the garage and in 1967, it was enclosed. It has beamed ceilings, a huge stone wood burning fireplace and access to a half bath and the rear yard and built in pool. The updated kitchen is larger than the pictures can show and offers granite counters, newer cabinetry and stainless appliances and sits next to the roomy first floor laundry room. The dining room is a warm place tp entertain with the stained wood paneling, wood floors and rustic chandelier. Past there lies the sun room/solarium with beautiful stone walls and windows overlooking the woods. Through double doors lies the living room with a gas fireplace flanked by built in bookshelves and offers glass doors leading to a large front porch. Upstairs there are 5 good sized bedrooms (3 added in 1967). The current owner is using a different bedroom for the owners bedroom however the original main bedroom has a full bath and an additional bedroom adjacent so this could be a fabulous walk in closet or nursery! Another full bath and a "den" perfect for a home office, craft room or even a study room round out this floor. The unfinished basement has numerous workbenches for the hobbyist in you! There is also a powder room with a toilet and a sink nearby for those messy hobbies. The floor was cleverly installed with a center drain so no water issues here! You will also find a Bellow system well pump, water softener, UV and sanitizer system as well as central vac. Quite a set up! There is a built u pool for cooling off and enough grass to enjoy the yard however much of the land is woods so no mowing!! Are you a car collector? The garage has 5 bays and some are extra deep so many cars could be parked here! There is also a barn attached with a stall and garage door and lots of room for a tractor and whatever else you might need to store here. Do you have dogs? Then you will LOVE the attached dog run! Want public sewer? The property has an EDU available if someone wanted to connect! All this and outstanding access to 413 to get to schools, Doylestown, New Hope, NJ, Philly and beyond. This is like nothing you have ever seen before so please don't miss it!
