This lovely, historic schoolhouse, formerly The Franklin School, is now a warm inviting home. Located 90 minutes from NYC and Philadelphia and set in the heart of glorious Bucks County this petite and perfectly designed home offers easy access to so much of what everyone is looking for. The schoolhouse was built in 1865 and sits on just over an acre of land set amidst hundreds of preserved acres. The road it sits on services only two homes, guaranteeing privacy.
This converted schoolhouse is a two-bedroom, two bath retreat. The first floor includes a large gathering room with 10-foot ceilings and exposed beams, wide-plank pine flooring, and abundant natural light from large, deep-set windows. The kitchen boasts beautiful handmade hickory cabinets and bright sunny windows, vaulted ceiling, skylight, tile counter and a real brick floor. The first floor bedroom houses the original 150+ year old chalkboard and wide pine wood floors with ample closet space. The first floor full bath has a clawfoot soaking tub and if you look closely you can even see the raised area where the original schoolteachers desk set. The upstairs bedroom has a cathedral ceiling and charming little stone fireplace, plus bath with shower stall.
When spring arrives the entire acre is surrounded by yellow forsythia followed by native tiger lilies. You will look forward to resting beside the outdoor fireplace with a glass of wine and listen to the trickle of the koi pond surrounded by many perennials. Once the driveway gate is closed, the entire property is secure for your pets to roam the lovely open yard and woods.
With a surprising amount of storage space and perfect paint colors, and fenced yard, you'll want to pay a visit to this country getaway.
