February 22, 2010 – (RealEstateRama) — A Bucks County estate featuring an enchanting stone farmhouse on 2.86 acres of manicured property is scheduled to go on the auction block next month.
Max Spann Real Estate & Auction Co., a national auctioneer of elite properties, has scheduled the auction for Thursday, March 18 at 1 p.m. at the estate, 6739 Upper York Road, New Hope (Solebury Township). Bidding will start at $750,000. The estate was originally listed at $1,495,000.
Built in 1850, the country home features a gracious living room with a fireplace, an elegant dining room, a charming country kitchen with exposed stone walls, granite countertops and top-of-the-line appliances.
Step outdoors into meticulously designed gardens with rustic stone walls and walkways, a built-in swimming pool and an expansive patio. The property also features split rail fenced paddocks, a meetinghouse barn and a bank barn, perfect for parties.
“This Bucks County antique offers style, elegance, comfort and quality,” said Bob Dann, executive vice president for Max Spann. “It’s rare to find an estate in that is both historic and functional and even rarer at such an affordable price.” Interested bidders are urged to attend one of two previews from noon to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 28 and Tuesday, March 9.
Dann said the downturn in the economy has created unprecedented opportunities to buy outstanding properties like this estate in Bucks County at more affordable prices. “Today’s low prices combined with historically low interest rates, makes this a true buyers’ market,” Dann said.
The estate is located less than four miles from the historical Delaware River town of New Hope, a top destination for weekend travelers in search of fine dining, antiques, boutiques and arts and crafts. It is also near the Delaware Canal State Park, a 60-mile long National Recreation Trail that follows the towpath of the historical canal.
While the estate is situated in the heart of bucolic Bucks County, it is conveniently located for commuters. The estate is less than 20 miles from Trenton, N.J. and 46 miles from Center City Philadelphia.
