Few portions of Old York Road, with its wayside inns and rural homes, contain more historic interest than the parcels that embrace the fork in the road through Lahaska. Buckingham was settled early on by pioneers and Quakers, and this house was located on a 500-acre land grant from William Penn, right next to the Meetinghouse and built around the same time.



Originally constructed in 1720, it has been recently renovated with a new 2-story addition that encompasses a large family room with fireplace and a separate upstairs bedroom/office with its own bath.



The oldest wing still proudly displays its elegant millwork, windows and original door. The 1800s addition carried on the formal style, with tall ceilings, fireplace and open staircase. The current owners have enhanced this home with a sun-filled gallery, the family-room addition, and a new updated kitchen with custom black-walnut cabinetry and granite counters.



Unwind in the charming breakfast room with stone walls and tall windows overlooking the patio; or a few paces take you into the formal dining room with wide-plank pumpkin-pine floors and built-in cabinets for your china. For formal parties a huge butler pantry and vestibule off the kitchen provide ample space to stage your dinner.



A master suite, third guest suite and 5 fireplaces make this home a good possibility as a Bed and Breakfast, extended family homestead, or traditional home occupation. In addition, a 3-bedroom guest cottage currently rents for $1600/month.
