    Description

    This c.1815 stucco-over-stone home is one of the 12 original homes built in the Borough of Quakertown, part of a 1,000-acre tract of William Penn once known as the Manor of Richland. The village center developed as a stopover for commercial traffic to Philadelphia and legend has it that 125 S Main Street was one of three homes along the historic Underground Railroad. Set on .97 acres, the property is warm and comfortable with rooms that ring true to the home's heritage. The main floor welcomes with rich wood floors, exposed stone walls, deep-set windowsills and high ceilings, period moldings and built-ins, and 4 fireplaces. The original walk-in fireplace in the dining room reminds of life in the 1800s. Bright and sunny, the kitchen was renovated in 2018 and offers new pine floor, cabinets and walnut counters, center cooking peninsula and new stainless appliances. The sunny family room addition with vaulted skylight and double French doors opens to the wrap-around deck with peach tree overlooking the flat and park-like back lawn. A recently renovated full bath includes a re-glazed claw-foot tub. Upstairs are 4 cheerful bedrooms with original random width pumpkin pine floors. Old world details such as built-ins, chair rail molding, hand-carved mantels and fireplaces grace the private rooms. The hall bath is renovated and has wide pine floorboards. Turned stairs lead to the large walk-up attic for additional storage or perhaps living space. Two-car garage with walk-up 2nd floor storage. There is plenty of land to consider subdividing with a variance for street frontage, and a minimum 5,000sf lot and 50-foot lot width. Enjoy easy Boro living and walk to dining, shopping, and parks. Easily accessible to major arteries to the Lehigh Valley, New York, and Philadelphia.
