    At Gwyn Lynn & Jacksonville, Gate House stands watch on a private, tree-lined cul-de-sac in Ivyland. This historic Bucks County stone house is surrounded by perennial gardens, specimen trees, fieldstone walls, and bluestone patios. The private, partially fenced property sits on over an acre in Council Rock School District.  The original house dates to the early 1700's, with later additions circa 1810.  The classic interior features a dining room and living room with hardwood floors, exposed stone walls, beautiful stone fireplace hearth, exposed beams, and deep-set windows. Artisan stonework overlooks the lush gardens. The light-filled kitchen, also with hardwood flooring, boasts stainless steel appliances, abundant cabinetry, vaulted ceiling, skylights, a breakfast area and opens to an extraordinary outdoor paradise for entertaining or simply enjoying a morning cup of coffee.  A powder room and laundry room are tucked away on the first floor and complete this level. Upstairs, 3 bedrooms, including a well-sized master with fireplace and stone hearth and two closets, share a full hall bath.  There is also a charming space on the third floor, currently used as a fourth bedroom. Making this property even more enchanting is the newly reconstructed Holiday Cottage with air conditioning, loft bedroom, full bath and plumbed for a kitchenette. This space would be a wonderful office, studio and/or guest quarters.  Located about midway between the historic boroughs of Doylestown and Newtown, with Regional Rail Service to Philadelphia just 8 minutes away, and a 30 minute drive to Trenton trains for NYC commuters, this home has so much to offer, including public sewer, natural gas, and very low taxes! Priced below current appraised value.
