Own a piece of Bucks County history with this one-of-a-kind property sprawling across almost 9.5 lush acres. Travel down the winding gated drive dotted by mature trees and take note as Shelly Mill, a breathtaking sanctuary, appears before you. This former gristmill was the site where the Ely family patented a new milling and grain process that revolutionized the industry. Originally built in 1771 with later editions, the stone mill has since been reimagined into a gorgeous Arts & Crafts masterpiece showcasing 3-stories of beautiful and unique design elements including reclaimed leaded stained glass windows, 1,000’s of decorative Boston Grueby tiles from turn of the century gracing the floor and walls, custom fixtures, random width plank floors, original grand mill interior doors, dramatic ceilings, interlocking exposed beams, and a notable 35’ river stone fireplace. Truly a livable showpiece highlighting a vintage property that has been given new life and incorporates many wonderful modern amenities including an elevator. Tremendous space allowing for flexibility, privacy, and multigenerational living. The focal point is the completely preserved millhouse 18’ diameter waterwheel integrated into the property’s main floor interior design giving a glimpse of years past. Explore the outdoors where the benefits are equally impressive featuring a sparkling saltwater pool with convenient outdoor shower, sprawling covered bluestone patio and terrace and inviting green space, all perfect spots for entertaining guests while enjoying the serene backdrop of whispering trees. Additional amenities include a 4-car detached garage with connecting studio and neighboring half bath, kitchen gardens and room to run! This magnificent and unique property is located just minutes away from Doylestown, Peddlers Village and New Hope for shopping, dining and entertainment.
