    Description

    Lemon Hill Farm is tucked away on 2.5 acres creating an atmosphere of a country retreat that epitomizes the charm of historic Bucks county. Originally built in 1745 this home was the 2nd house to be built in the original village of Southampton and is now the oldest remaining stone homestead in town. It is filled with historic details like pie stairs, rich millwork and incomparable craftmanship. Distinguished by wide plank pine hardwood floors and built in bookshelves the spacious front dining room is the perfect spot for any size gathering. A modern kitchen has the benefits of 21st century conveniences coupled with an original stone woodburning fireplace and beautiful exposed beams. A modern addition blends seamlessly, boasting a huge open Gathering room with dramatic open gabled beams, and a wall of windows to enjoy the scenic treetop views. An exposed stone wall adorns this space along with a handsome stone fireplace. French sliding doors lead out to a multi-tiered deck to enjoy views of the pond, gazebo and fountain creating a tranquil place to unwind. Stairs lead down to a massive walk out Bonus Room that has a powder room, wood burning stove and endless possibilities for a bar or media room. Another set of stairs lead to the Tavern Room which is part of the original structure and takes you a step back in time with a huge walk in fireplace with a woodburning stove insert, a built in seating nook and a door out to the backyard making this room a flexible space. The old stone wash table adds tons of character and is an instant conversation piece. A convenient laundry room offers additional storage. The second level boasts 2 bedrooms and a hall bath along with the original hall cedar closets and deep built in shelving. The 3rd floor is comprised of two additional bedrooms and additional full bath. You can feel its early origins in all the fine details along with a fully restored original carriage house that now serves as a detached 1 car garage with second floor plus a loft. Don~t pass up this rare opportunity to own this magnificent historic gem!
