Description for 1820 Limekiln Pk Chalfont, PA 18914
As you step into Valley View Farm from the welcoming front porch, you feel the warm energy it exudes, as did President Buchanan when he stayed here. This property sits on 2.84 acres, spans 2 townships (giving you 2 school district options). It boasts beautiful gardens, mature plantings & lush landscaping that include specimens from local horticulturist Earl Jamison's personal gardens. It's rare to find an unspoiled 1796 stone farmhouse that has been artistically modernized & restored, creating the perfect blend of old world charm with modern amenities. The main floor features original wide plank pumpkin pine flooring, deep set window sills, exposed beams, formal living room with brick hearth, wood burning stove, formal dining room, striking moldings and baseboards, an office with exposed stone, powder room, guest suite with full bath (easily converts back into an in-law suite). The gem of the 1st level is the breakfast nook which served as the original cookhouse- w/ exposed stone walls, vaulted ceiling & spectacular walk-in stone fireplace - you'll feel as if you have stepped back in time. The spacious family room has a unique custom built bar with copper tops & tile counters, original craftsman lighting fixture, wood stove and custom firewood holder. Second level offers a study & 3 spacious bedrooms, each with their own charming personality, a conveniently located laundry & a tastefully redone bathroom. Turning the stairs to the 3rd floor, you'll feel the creative energy as you enter the large 4th bedroom, currently used as an art studio. As you exit the home to the patio w/ old reclaimed Philadelphia bricks, you're greeted by a small koi pond w/ waterlilies. The outdoor space is ideal for al fresco dining or simply sitting with a book. The new oversized barn-with 2 bay parking, heated shop, water, electric & 2nd floor loft has endless possibilities. The rear yard lends itself to all sorts of outdoor activities including a walk thru the woods, lounge in the hammock, or a ride on the swing. With all of the parking, outdoor space and barn, imagine the entertainment options! Convenient to all that abounds in Beautiful Bucks County; close to Lake Galena, just outside Doylestown, minutes to train & close to New Hope, it's wonderful rural flavor will warm your soul. You'll feel like you're on vacation every day. Tired of cookie cutter homes? A unique chance to own a piece of history in a home that's been lovingly transformed into an exciting and artistic space.
