Property Description

Nestled on over 6 serene acres in the heart of Upper Makefield is the Samuel Merrick House, a wonderful 1773 authentic farmhouse with a modern addition. A piece of Bucks County history, this home served as the headquarters of General Nathanael Greene and the location where Washington and his officers held their final council before crossing the Delaware to the Battle of Trenton. This gorgeous and bright farmhouse has so much to offer along with its rich history, beautifully detailed both inside and out with features such as exposed stone, wood beams, deep windowsills and pumpkin pine hardwood floors that unite all rooms of the home. The cozy living room with a fireplace opens to the bright and spacious dining room, which features a phenomenal stone fireplace and large windows overlooking both the front and back of the picturesque property. Then step down into the eat-in kitchen, a wonderful chefs space boasting granite counters, Thermador range, double wall ovens, Sub Zero refrigerator, plenty of cabinetry, and a vaulted ceiling with recessed lighting. The new addition connects seamlessly to the original home, offering a spacious yet cozy 2 story gathering room with a vaulted ceiling, custom built ins, a fireplace, a wall of windows framing incredible long-distance views of the property, and a door out to a covered porch which is the perfect place to sit with a cup of coffee and enjoy the outdoors. This main level of the home is complete with a full bath. Upstairs, one will find the bright master suite with its own fireplace, and an expansive study featuring a fireplace and walls of custom built ins. The fully finished third level of the home offers two additional bedrooms and a full bath. There is no shortage of open space to enjoy outside along with an in-ground pool, perfect for outdoor entertaining. Additional amenities include oversize 2 car garage with a second level flex space, newer cedar roof, and central air. Close to shopping and dining, convenient to I-95 for commuting, and in Council Rock schools.
