Every home assumes some portion of the history of those who have lived within its walls. This residence honorably bears the indelible mark of a wealthy merchant who resided in this historic village at the turn of the century. The warner c. Thompsons mansion epitomizes the charm and glamour of historic bucks county while maintaining all the benefits of modern amenities. The home is a distinguished presence in the village amongst a special blend of building styles that evolved setting it apart from other rural villages in bucks county. This patterned brownstone has a colonial revival flair with heavy modillion cornice. Masonry work was completed by amos gilmore and carpentry was done by frank. E. Heston. Stylistic well-preserved details such as rich chestnut millwork, high ceilings, carved columns and pocket doors open to the formal rooms. Bright, generous, versatile interior spaces feature hardwood floors, and large windows. Twin parlors are separated by exquisite pocket doors. A handsome brick fireplace warms the space. A generous formal dining room lends access to an enchanting wrap- around porch that has a matching modillion cornice supported by gorgeous ionic columns. The modern kitchen boasts new raised panel chestnut cabinetry, to match the original woodwork, sub zero refrigerator, a le cornue french stove, custom detailed range hood and a radiant heated flooring with tiles imported from france. Honed soapstone countertops create a dramatic contrast. The original owners name has been etched into the sink apron honoring its past. The second level offers 3 spacious bedrooms including the main suite that has been updated and expanded to create a wonderful retreat. It includes a sitting room and a newly updated bath with radiant heated slate floors, seamless shower and towel warmer. The hall bath has also been updated and boasts ornamental paneled wainscotings, decorative honeycomb tile floor along with a vintage pedestal sink and claw foot tub. A finished 3rd floor offers plenty of additional living space along with another bedroom, half bath, home gym and studio office. Additional features include radiant heated floors in the kitchen and baths, walk up basement, 2 car detached garage, patio, all new plumbing on second floor baths, natural gas and central air. Also, a surprise piece of history is sealed inside the cornerstone which has never been opened since its construction. Great location with both a hometown and rural feel only minutes to downtown newtown/new hope/doylestown/buckingham/council rock schools.
