Property Description

Rare opportunity. Prime location executive estate strategically located along New York/Philadelphia corridor. Prime road frontage with excellent exposure, this heritage property lends itself to home-based business, organic farming, equestrian interests, high-end agro-tourism B&B, or countless other opportunities. Historic Elm Grove Estate offers a grand Manor House circa 1700, Carriage House, Settler’s Cottage circa 1680, guest quarters, staff quarters, Spring House, extensive barn complex and outbuildings set on 75 acres with expansive picturesque views. Extremely low taxes (under $25,000 in 2021) add to the property’s appeal. Offered outside the founding family for only the second time in 300 years, Elm Grove Estate offers an opulent, updated stone manor house with over 8,600 square feet of historic but beautifully updated living space. Large rooms with high ceilings, 10 fireplaces including 18th century walk-in, tall windows, mansion-sized dining room, European commercial kitchen, stone walls, original woodwork, wide-plank floors and period hardware throughout. Updated bathrooms, and whole-house entertainment and control system wired, Elm Grove is ready for its next 300 years and beyond. Adding to the graciousness of this home, a large rear terrace overlooks the fields and pastures that once hosted traditional English hunt-country rides. Above are two floors of private quarters, staff quarters and library. There are ten bedrooms, including two main suites, and seven full baths, plus two half baths. The carriage house is updated to offer gorgeous, history-filled living spaces, heated garage and ample storage. There are three large barns, and multiple outbuildings, equipment buildings, run-in barns, stone walls and bridges, stone-walled stream and fishing pond, with forested hills beyond. The land has been organically maintained for nearly twenty years. Top school district. The property has significant rental income. Centrally located 75 minutes from New York City and sixty minutes from Philadelphia, in the heart of historic Bucks County. Fantastic sunrises and sunsets, expansive views and history abound. This unique property has it all. Property is also available for rent. MLS: PABU5233268
