Property Description for 261 Court Street, Doylestown, PA 18901

The Joseph Harvey house is a beautiful example of a late 19th century Victorian home set on a tree lined street of grand historic homes. The enchanting exterior of this home invites you to the wide rocking chair porch-plenty big for a porch swing or hammock to relax on and enjoy a lemonade. Step inside to the dramatic foyer with eleven foot ceilings, lovely turned staircase and original pine floors. The elegantly spacious living room features tall windows, large wood burning fireplace with brick surround and deep mantle and built in floor to ceiling bookcases. The room is so large that it is currently also being used for formal dining. The family room has, in the past, also been used as a large dining room and features deep moldings and a sunny bay window. The delightful kitchen is the heart of this beautiful home. Exposed beams, handsome cabinetry, extensive counter space and a fabulous breakfast room overlooking the spacious backyard, patio and two story detached brick carriage house. The breakfast room is a treat, with walls of windows to enjoy the view and a great little gas fireplace stove to keep you cozy. Tucked under the front stairs is an appealingly tiled powder room to complete this floor. On the second floor are three spacious bedrooms, a beautifully appointed full bath with claw tub and large laundry room. The bedrooms share high ceilings, pine floors and tall windows. Each has large closets-an unexpected treat in a home of this vintage! The entire third floor of the home is the stylish master suite. Features include: exposed beams, hardwood floors, skylights, a red gas fireplace stove and a gorgeous ensuite bath. A sitting area is lit by the sunlight through the antique window-so many original features grace this beautiful home alongside the seamless addition of modern necessities. Outdoors, the grounds are charming. Completely fenced with raised beds and perennial plantings, the yard is a shady and serene outdoor living space. The brick carriage house has two garage bays and a second floor that will work for a variety of uses such as a playroom or studio. Low taxes! Doylestown is a walking town: schools, shopping, night life and public transportation just minutes away. Sit and watch the country's oldest continuing Memorial Day parade or the amazing pro bike race and then stroll down to the art festival or farmers market. This blend of historic and new might make this the best place to call home.
