Property Description for 115 AARONS AVE, DOYLESTOWN PA 18901

Considered one of the oldest stone bank barns in the Americas, circa 1752 "The Leap Year Barn" was featured on HGTV and in numerous publications. This extraordinary example of architectural excellence is a testament to the centuries developed building practices of our nation's earliest settlers. The pre-revolutionary Sweitzer style converted barn is set amongst bucolic scenery on a quaint road with a nature preserve just minutes from Doylestown. This expansive full time residence has a gourmet kitchen with granite countertops, custom tile flooring and stone backsplash, gourmet appliances and a view of the front garden. There is a "bakery room" with a wood fired brick pizza oven and high temp industrial grade designer center island. Each room is adorned with exposed hand hewn beams and stone walls rich in centuries of conversation and storytelling. One of a kind stone stairs enter to the welcoming dining room with attached parlor to relax to after dinner for spirits at the bar. The main living room has soaring ceilings that reach to the peak of the barn, a wood burning fireplace wrapped in custom artisan stonework and true hardwood floors. There is loft area that looks out over the living room and affords a view of the grand nature of this commanding space. The Master suite has its own sitting room, an outdoor overlook of the grounds and pool area, open beams, and a full luxurious bath with European rustic flair. The lower bank level has two more spacious bedrooms with a full bath that conjures images of an 18th century bed and breakfast. The grounds are impeccable, lush and an ingratiating personal oasis. The expansive in-ground pool with a grotto sitting area that is defined by massive locally sourced wood beams, stone pillars and working masonry hearth is ready for late summer nights under the stars . The property, once inhabited by a licensed horticulturalist, has a landscape that is rich in specimen plants, shrubs and trees that yield color from spring to fall. This Sui generis example of early colonial building prowess, the innate appeal of earth born building materials and the enlightened infusion of modern luxury make this history defining home a true Masterpiece. Additional out buildings offer possible studio space, a detached 2 story garage and garden shed. Declare your independence from ordinary living and schedule your personal tour through history today. Easy access to rt 202 parkway & 611. Just 1/4 mile to the R5 train station.
