Designed by architect Milton Bean, this brick Queen Anne Revival home was constructed in 1893 followed by a living room and bedroom expansion a few years later. Raphael Architects designed the most recent additions and renovations to accommodate modern living. A four car garage addition was constructed on the side of the existing carriage house, at the rear of the borough property. An English conservatory, accessed through the newly renovated kitchen, provides a perfect setting for growing flowers and herbs, in the bucolic garden setting. Interior and exterior renovations transform the 19th century building, completing the transformation of this historic structure and allowing the owners to age in place in the center of Doylestown Borough.
The exterior windows were rebuilt where possible, or replaced if not original to the structure. Internally, a new elevator artfully inserted into the house provides easy accessibility to all floors of the house. Newly renovated bathrooms now serve the five bedrooms in the house. All new floor, wall and ceiling finishes; as well as, HVAC, plumbing, electrical and lighting systems complete the improvements to the historic home.
