Description

This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of history in the heart of Hulmeville Borough, Bucks County, PA, a historic old town that still retains the old structures and charm of the 18th century. Many families have lived there for several generations, and the borough provides a full slate of activities that are friendly to all. It is small enough to walk from one end of town to the other but modern enough to provide state-of-the-art internet and cable service. The end unit facing Water St. is the original structure estimated to be 2000 square feet of living space and is complimented by the beautiful hardwood floors. The Water St main entrance welcomes you into a living and dining area with a wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen features a walk-in cooking fireplace, a dining area, a dishwasher, and a modern cooking space with a propane gas stove, a water closet, and a laundry nook. On the second level are two bedrooms, each measuring approximately 13x16 ft, and each bedroom has a separate space for a sitting room or office. There is a full bathroom with a walk-in shower. This unit also has central air conditioning. The third level has a walk-up attic space. The middle unit facing Hulme Ave is estimated to be 1200 sq ft. The main level features a living room, dining room, and kitchen with new cabinets. Upstairs are two bedrooms and a full bath with a clawfoot tub. The third level also has a walk-up attic. This is a must-see property to appreciate its potential and history fully. This is an ideal property for a restoration buff, one who may wish to own and live in one unit while renting out the other, or an investor. The current owner believes that the shorter right side, as viewed from Water Street, was built before 1750 and contains a walk-in fireplace, which was (and still is) used for cooking and baking. It is believed the house's left-hand (and taller) side was an addition put on by John Hulme around 1803 when his son George Hulme lived there. When the Banking Act of 1814 was passed, a stone-lined vault was added to the house's interior. The Hulmes, along with other leaders in the community, established the first bank in Bucks County called The Farmers Bank. *Photo credits to professional photographer Kristie Worthington for most of the photos for Water St taken about five years ago.
