Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

****Motivated Sellers want to sell**** This charming farmhouse is located in the historic Village of Dolington. This home with its bucolic setting is situated halfway between quaint downtown Newtown and historic Washington Crossing. Originally it was built as the teacher's house for the nearby one-room schoolhouse. Located in the Council Rock school district, this home in its idyllic country-setting, has undergone renovations that include a more modern kitchen, family room, bedroom, bathroom, wood burning stove, central air and a detached 2 car garage. As you enter the home from the side porch you'll encounter the dining room where there's the original, random width, well-preserved, pine wood flooring dating back to 1850. Just past the dining room, you'll find 2 sitting rooms and the front study or sunroom. One sitting room has a wood burning stove. Both rooms are comfortable in size and can be easily made into an office and/or a playroom. The front study is a window-encased sunroom that features the original outside wall and shutters to the home. This space will quickly become a morning favorite, as it's full of natural light that both you and your plants will love. The cozy eat-in kitchen has newer stainless steel appliances and wood cabinetry. Here you'll also find a functional mud-room styled hallway with a laundry area, a half bath and plenty of storage. Take a step back in time when you ascend the original stairway to the upper level. Each of the 3 bedrooms are again comfortable in size, have plenty of closet space, and several windows. The primary bedroom suite has brand new carpeting along with a full bathroom. Outside, in the tree covered backyard, is where you'll want to spend your spring, summer, and fall seasons. It's the perfectsize for outdoor activities and social gatherings. There's plenty of room to garden and grill or simply relax in your hammock. You'll enjoy listening to the songbirds and watching the various nearby wildlife. Imagine how happy you'll be coming home every day as you pull into your driveway, park in your own private 2-cargarage alongside your serene farmhouse oasis. Commuting is a breeze as this home is conveniently located only miles to NJ bridges, Route 295/95 and the PA/NJ turnpikes.
