With roots dating to 1794 and a history as a dairy, Mill Creek Farm has gone through many changes in its 225-year history. At least once it was the subject of a painting, a watercolor depicting it in a "happy yellow paint color" according to the current owner. And so it has become again, through a careful renovation and great eye for bringing out the best in its living spaces, a very happy home, indeed. Complete with a character-laden interiors, an impressive bank barn with new wood siding and new electric service installed, a ~she shed,~ firepit, milk house, small vineyard and as much or as little garden space as one likes, Mill Creek Farm is classic Bucks County. At its heart is a plaster over stone house with additions over the years, all of it now structurally sound, updated mechanically and warm and appealing to make it move-in-ready this fall. Wide-plank wood floors, exposed beam ceilings, a stone fireplace, deep-sill windows and plenty of built-ins add character; the present owners~ tasteful updates with designer paint colors, a white kitchen with Wolf range, Miele dishwasher and Sub-Zero refrigerator, beautiful glass-tile backsplash and other high-end features add everything one needs for daily living. Add to this a comfortable dining room and an all-season sunroom addition with pastoral views, plus beautifully designed new bathrooms (one full on first floor; a main suite bath and hall bath upstairs) and the main bedroom and two extra bedrooms upstairs, and this home proves it has all the ingredients to be a full-time residence or weekend retreat. In warmer weather, enjoy the front porch or the firepit. The ~she shed~ has new siding and a new roof and is ready for parties or hobbies. For those who like to marvel at barns and how they are constructed, this one is in excellent condition and has just had many of its windows renewed/replaced and its Dutch doors replaced. An equipment barn attached to the main barn provides covered parking, and the milk house with its own well and cooling trough is now used for storage. For those interested in growing grapes for wine-making, the small-scale vineyard is planted in varietals suitable for the local climate.~ A true country gem yet convenient to shopping, dining, major roads and transportation and just minutes from Doylestown!
