The Grand Dame of Lower Makefield is on the market for the first time in nearly 40 years ! This stately Center Hall Georgian Colonial will be celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2022 and exudes all the charm of a bygone era. Originally the Murray home, all the lovely details that make this home so special have remained unchanged: from the original hardwood floors, to the detailed mouldings, to the solid wooden doors with original hinges, ice door, and remnants of the original intercom and servants bell, the original linen closet, the fireplaces .- too many to mention. Set back from the road with landscaping for privacy, drive up the circular driveway and enter the front door into the large, front-to-rear foyer. To the left is the formal living room and to the right the formal dining room, both flanked with matching fireplaces and both opening to sunporches, with exterior access to gardens and the parklike property. These are beautiful, light filled,high ceilinged, spacious rooms and open into the adjoining family room, therefore perfect for enjoying family time or entertaining Also off the main foyer is a powder room, access to the eat-in kitchen and a door to the two car attached garage. The original butlers pantry, complete with a sink, is located between the kitchen and the dining room, which has built in corner cupboards, and wainscotting and is perfect for large family celebrations or dinner parties. Up the impressive staircase ( there is also a separate staircase from the basement to the second floor) there are 7 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. . Off the large upper hall are five bedrooms ( one presently used as an office) with an inner hallway and connecting bathrooms. Two more second floor bedrooms and one bathroom are separate ( originally maids quarters) and perfect as a guest or nanny suite, or home for extended family members. Up another full flight of stairs there is a huge, semi-finished, attic, which can be used as future additional living space or storage. Also, there is a finished basement with a wet bar and powder room. This Estate Home, which has retained the integrity of the original construction, features almost 2 acres of parklike, landscaped, fenced-in grounds, and has a gate that closes off the driveway for security. The property is surrounded by beautiful mature trees and there is a gazebo, a paver patio, and an open grassy area. This home is minutes to train stations to both Philadelphia and NYC, as well as easy access to I95, I295 and the RT 1 corridor, yet in a highly desirable residential neighborhood.Located in Lower Makefield Township but near Yardley Borough, it is only a few minutes to Newtown and Washington Crossing. Enjoy the many great restaurants and parks this area has to offer. Award winning Pennsbury School District. This is your rare opportunity to own a piece of Lower Makefield history and enjoy the grand lifestyle! Sip tea in one of the sunrooms and enjoy the grounds and the wildlife where it is peaceful and private, or host a large party or wedding, as there is space here for that too. This would work well as a multi-generational or extended family home. This is a greatly loved family home with many cherished memories and it now awaits a new family to treasure it and create precious memories of their own.
