Welcome to 500 E Court Street!

Walking distance to the center of Doylestown and located across the street from the historic Fonthill Castle, nestled on 70 acres of lush grounds. You cannot beat this location! Enter the driveway, adorned by columns, as you head into a spacious courtyard. The inviting covered porch with two sitting areas that flank the gorgeous 8 ft oak front door that welcomes you into the home. Upon entering the home, you will immediately notice the light and airy feeling and the open floor plan with 9 ft ceilings, gorgeous smoked hickory wood flooring and oversized windows with deep sills. The foyer is flanked by a spacious dining room and living room with a two-way gas fireplace. Located just beyond the living room is a relaxing sunroom/family room with French doors that provide access to one of the covered porch areas. Tucked away beyond the living room and family room is a wonderful pub room/flex space, complete with a bar area with beer tap where you can enjoy the other side of the two-way fireplace that is shared with the living room. This room is also a great space for a home office/study. The custom kitchen features rustic maple soft-close cabinets, new honed quartzite countertops, subway tile backsplash, under cabinet lighting, stainless steel appliances that include a six-burner gas range with a custom hood vent, dual ovens, custom pendant lighting above the island and recessed lighting. The kitchen also includes banquet seating for 8 and a built-in desk area. The kitchen provides access to the deck, which is the perfect area for grilling and dining al fresco. The spacious 1/2 acre lot provides an abundance of outdoor space that includes an expansive backyard. There is plenty of space for the next steward to customize the great outdoors to suit their needs. There are endless possibilities to explore. Back inside the house, just past the kitchen there is a butler pantry with a wine refrigerator, a huge walk-in pantry with secondary refrigerator-freezer, a large laundry/mud room with cubbies, access to an additional covered porch area.
