Property Description for 956 DURHAM RD, DURHAM PA 18077

This 1880 brick Gothic Victorian showcases the finest in high-style, late-19th-century craftsmanship yet offers every modern comfort with all systems updated since 2012. Tucked away in the sleepy historical village of Durham in Upper Bucks, it was built by the wealthiest man in town who, among other ventures, owned a company that manufactured windows, doors, millwork and moldings. It's no surprise, then, that the woodwork inside and outside of the house is spectacular. This residence is flooded with light thanks to extra-tall windows and almost 11-foot ceilings ? it showcases art beautifully and can accommodate even the most contemporary furniture collection. Its original double-front doors open to a central foyer with grand-scale parlors on each side. The room to the right is completely open with a 47-foot span reaching from the large sitting area in the front to an all-new, beautifully designed, eat-in kitchen with breakfast bar at the very rear with a dining area in between. An exposed brick gas/wood-burning fireplace and a large bay window serve as a focal points in the room. Just off the kitchen is an all-new powder room. The mudroom opens to a patio and lovely grounds with a barn/garage, guest house and stream. Private quarters are upstairs and include a main bedroom suite with an all-new bath with neutral cabinetry, a whirlpool tub and stall shower. Three additional bedrooms are generously sized and share a new hall bath. Laundry facilities are also located upstairs. The attic level has interesting ceiling volume in its four sections. It provides ample storage (as does the home's basement) but has great potential should someone wish to finish it. Behind the main residence is the one-bedroom guest house, a charming cottage with living room, dining room, new kitchen, new bath, new windows and updated HVAC. A millrace carrying the Gallows Run Creek runs through the property, under the guest house, and joins with Cooks Creek on an adjacent property, adding great potential for a bit of fishing from the backyard. In addition to updated heating, air conditioning, electric and plumbing (including tankless water heaters) and new septic system (sized for 8 bedrooms), a Generac standby generator is at the ready for power outages. It connects to a 500-gallon propane tank. This brick and brownstone home has a majestic presence and will serve very capably as a weekender or full-time residence. Convenient to New Jersey/I-78 and other points.
