The Richardson House (c 1750) epitomizes the charm and substance of historic homes which makes it a truly unique property. Gracing Newtown Borough with its stone walls, cedar shake roof, and classic lines for over 250 years, this fine home bends new with the old to produce an exceptional property. The moment you step through the front door, the ambiance of a bygone era immediately greets you. The spacious dining room with deep set windows, wainscoting, beautiful random wood floors, and graceful chandelier, balances the pallor with a fireplace and glazed french and pocket doors ensuring privacy when needed. Down the hallway is the centrally located kitchen. Featuring a brick floor, solid wood cabinets, cook top stove with microwave, two dishwashers, refrigerator, pantry, and substantial space for a kitchen table, it also provides access to the bright laundry/mudroom and powder room, and Sun room. Passing through an inviting half wood door, one enters an impressive Great Room, featuring a large stone fireplace, bay window, radiant heated brick floor, and additional entrance to the Sun room. From the Sun room and Great room, the bright and private backyard offers trellises, green lawn, and trees which are a delight in any season. Proceeding from the Great room up the open staircase one finds a landing complete with generous window, and book shelves. From here is the access to the Master bedroom suite or access to the three additional bedrooms and two baths.
