Walter Emerson Baum Farmhouse 
Sellersville, PA  -  $284,000

Own your piece of Bucks County History! This elegant stone farmhouse, conveniently located in Sellersville Boro, is the former home of Walter Emerson Baum, the famous Impressionist Artist and founder of the Allentown Art Museum! The current owners have lovingly restored the home to accommodate modern living, yet kept the amenities to retain the charm of yesteryear. 

Enter into another time with refinished wide plank flooring throughout the living and dining rooms. Exposed stone wall and wood burning stove in the living room lend to cozy evenings. The hand hewn wooden headers above the windows mimic the charm of the deep window sills. 5 foot windows add plenty of natural light. The formal dining room gives plenty of space for entertaining. Period millwork surrounds the energy efficient Pella windows. Your kitchen has custom designed shaker cabinets, BRAND NEW ceramic tile floor, and a cheery breakfast room with plenty of windows and a skylight to illuminate yet another exposed stone wall! Full bath and ceramic floored mudroom which leads to the back yard finish off the first level. 

Upstairs you will find 3 bedrooms, all freshly painted and floors refinished, along with a ceramic full bath with embossed ceiling. The walk up attic lends plenty of storage space, and can possibly be refinished to become a 4th bedroom or study. The basement still has the original cooking fireplace, and evidence of the cold spring where perishables were once stored. All of this sits on a spacious 3/4 acre lot, a rare find in the boro. The brick patio gives plenty of space for barbecues and relaxing in your outdoor oasis, overlooking the deep lot with plenty of mature trees and a natural green fence. Detached workshop will give you plenty of space for storage and/or hobbies, or even a place to run your small business! 

Take this opportunity to step back in time and relish in the beauty of Bucks County. So charming, yet so conveniently located, you get the best of both worlds!
