My Notes

Historic Doylestown Borough is the jewel of Bucks County. It has the perfect blend of magnetic small town charm and busy modern lifestyle. Besides the great restaurants, wonderful shopping, active night life, great public transportation and Blue Ribbon schools, folks are drawn to Doylestown for the architectural heritage. The Joseph Harvey house is a beautiful example of a late 19th century Victorian home set on one of Doylestown's most beautiful streets. Beckoning you to sit and relax, the wide rocking chair front porch overlooks the graceful landscaping of the open front yard. Set well back, but still within welcoming distance, this is a porch to watch the Memorial Day parade go by or sip a glass of wine under the Autumn sunset. Brackets under the eaves, a center peaked roof and charming choices of color make this beautiful Victorian irresistible. Inside, the eleven foot ceilings and lovely turned staircase, along with the original pine floors provide the first glimpse of the gracefully elegant interior. The living room features tall windows, large wood burning fireplace with brick surround and deep mantle and built in floor to ceiling bookcases. The room is so large that it is currently also being used for formal dining. The family room has, in the past, also been used as a large dining room and features deep moldings and a sunny bay window. What a gorgeous kitchen! Exposed beams, handsome cabinetry, wonderful counter space and a fabulous breakfast room overlooking the spacious backyard, patio and two story detached brick carriage house. The breakfast room is a treat, with walls of windows to enjoy the view and a great little gas fireplace stove to keep you cozy. A tiled half bath tucked under the stairs completes this floor. On the second floor are three really spacious bedrooms, an appealing hall bath and large laundry room. The bedrooms share high ceilings, pine floors and tall windows. Each has great closets-a plus in a home of this vintage! Down a hallway and up a flight of stairs is the dramatic master bedroom. Features include: exposed beams, hardwood floors, skylights, a red gas fireplace stove and a gorgeous ensuite bath that will make this room a hard one to leave! The grounds are simply beautiful. Completely fenced with raised beds and perennial plantings, the yard is a serene outdoor living space. Experience the joy of a life lived in a gorgeous Doylestown Boro home!  More Less
