Situated in the quaint Upper Bucks boro of Riegelsville, this pretty lady could be absolutely gorgeous once again! She has had modifications over the years, but many of her charming features remain. Circa 1886, this center foyer home offers a symetrical facade w/a hip-roofed front porch featuring turned frieze spindlework. Other original features include marble fireplace & mantel, decorative crown molding & ceiling medallion, original banister to 2nd floor, double-door entry w/doorbell, & wood floors (some have been painted). Spacious rooms & good bones make this a great opportunity for the buyer seeking to make it their own. Two-car detached garage w/opener & storage area/space for workshop. Oil boiler installed in 2012 & the central air was installed in 2017. Newer main roof (2018), along w/roofs on screened porch, back section of house & some new spouting (2017). Lovely screened porch. Property had been used as a family 2-unit, but can easily be converted back. NOT in a flood plain!

    That flooring is like some kind of optical illusion! I think I’d get dizzy walking across it! I think it’s Lino, not real parquet.

    I agree, Bethany. And it makes me sad what happened to the newel post at the bottom of the stairs.

    This poor house. It has such great bones, but somewhere along the way, some poor decisions (flooring/paneling) were made. Looks like it’s just cosmetic changes, which is good.

    The home of William Wolfinger (1846-1924), a farmer and brick mason from an old area family. He moved from his farm a few miles away into this house at the edge of town with his first wife Hettie Cole and their children, and later was here with his 2nd wife Rachel Weller.

    I like this house a lot! It’s not huge or especially ornate but it has enough original features remaining to give it a lot of character. Bucks County is a great area though Riegelsville seems to have received more than its share of bad renovations like the apartment alterations here. I hope someone makes the effort to restore this one!

    It would be so easy to decorate the green mint room quickly with its gorgeous white moulding and medallion. A decorative gold frame round mirror over the fireplace. A nice large carpet in pale colors would cover most of the floor but leave enough exposed to be interesting, and some nice antique furniture and do-up the drapes a little more grandly!
