    Description

    In the tranquil Bucks County countryside, withstanding the test of time and 18th century family feuding, lies this grand stone farmhouse, imbued in captivating local history. The original part of the home was built in 1751 by John Gruver with an addition added in 1796 by his son, Peter. Corner stones on both sides of the house are marked with dates. The initials of PG can be found on the addition side. Named after the founding family and majority land owners, Gruversville was once a thriving milling town at the head of Cook's Creek which was at the time, large enough to power a grist & lumber mill. The original Gruversville Road, which now serves as the driveway, led back to the town where foundations of the buildings from this small village can still be seen. A grist stone marks the approximate location of the mill. Upon John Gruver's demise, sons Peter and John inherited the 2 mills. His daughter, who married a Mennonite, was left the house. Family feuds, the selling off of land & the drying up of the creek likely due to the changing farming industry, led to the eventual disappearance of the town. The town residents broke away from the Pleasant Valley Reformed Church and created their own church with grave stones in the cemetery dating back to early 18th century. A Mennonite cemetery, walled-in to respect Mennonite tradition, stands on top of the fire road. Today, this extraordinary family compound enjoys a central location with commutability to Philadelphia, NYC, Lehigh Valley and several airports. It's set on 25 pastoral acres of fields, woodlands, a pond and a creek. In-laws, family newlyweds or the caretaker will enjoy living in the separate 2 bedroom house. A beautifully matched addition was added in 1991. Hardwood floors throughout, deep window sills and rich molding all add to the appeal. Grand in scope, this charming home hosts 11 rooms including a stunningly spacious kitchen and a large eat-in area with an exposed stone wall and French doors that open to the patio. A wall of windows flood the space with spectacular light and views of the multi-level patio anchored by a tiled in-ground pool. Custom Rutt handcrafted cabinetry, built-in appliances, granite countertops, a stylish long breakfast bar and a separate butler's pantry complete this area. Formal living room has a stone fireplace and wide staircase. Inviting family room with attractive stone fireplace and built-in bookcases. A generous formal dining room enhances the space with French doors that open to a sunlit room with a Jacuzzi, exposed stone walls and Tongue & Groove ceiling which opens to the pool area. Two staircases lead up to a well laid-out second level with 6 beautiful rooms, laundry room, and 3 full bath rooms. Balcony adjoins 2 bedrooms. Master suite features 2 walk-in closets, dressing area and separate room with toilet and bidet.~The lower level offers a game room with wet bar, mirrored exercise room, second family room with tiled floor and full bathroom. Designed perfectly for fun family living and entertaining. Horse boarding &/or riding academy could be some of the possible uses for this property with barn renovation or additions. Conditional use permit for a B&B would have to be sought. The tennis court needs some work and is currently being used as a pickleball court and is perfect area for a riding ring. The barn has a few usable stalls but needs some renovation Additional 58 adjacent acres available for sale (MLS # PABU463650)
