Welcome to The PERMANENT SCHOOL HOUSE. A Vintage Modern Schoolhouse meets chic renovated loft! Circa 1840’s, this schoolhouse turned one-of-a-kind Bucks County Beauty has been lovingly restored and updated to meet all one’s needs. Welcomed by a generous wrap-around covered porch, ideal for outdoor gatherings, sipping morning coffee or cocktails in the evening, it’s definitely a spot to enjoy all day long. Upon entering, the sleek and polished design will grasp your attention right away with soaring beamed ceilings, in the white-washed great room making it feel fresh and modern, although many original antique features like deep set windows, exposed stone, hand-hewn beams and period pine flooring are still in place. The floor to ceiling stone fireplace, large windows, and a storage loft sixteen feet above the room make it even more impressive. The great room is an open floor concept with lots of natural light inviting your imagination to arrange the room that best suits your needs. The kitchen is a gourmet’s delight featuring a Fisher and Paykel refrigerator, an Asko dishwasher, a Dacor gas range with a downdraft vent, and Pietra Cardoza limestone countertops, open shelving, skylights and a farm sink beneath a big window looking out onto the creek. Adjacent and open to the kitchen is the dining room surrounded by windows, custom window seating w/storage and flagstone flooring all with views of the water and could also serve as a sunroom. The charming original chalkboards were preserved in both bedrooms, each having refinished flooring, exposed painted beams and their own modernized private bathrooms. Polished touches like radiant heated floors, soapstone counters, subway tile and walk-in seamless glass showers keep everyone comfortable as does the Generac generator. The outside offers a private rear yard, plenty of parking both front and back, the original caretaker’s cottage and an outhouse across the street, along with a free-standing repointed outdoor stone fireplace. Surrounded by million-dollar homes, abutting farmland and soothing scenic creeks, all close to the Towpath, Frenchtown and historic river towns, parks, the river, and bucolic backroads with covered bridges to explore, this one should not be missed! This home is in excellent condition and absolutely turn-key, it’s ideal as a full-time residence or perfect as a get-away weekender in the country. Easy commute into NY and Philadelphia. A comprehensive full list of improvements is available.
