    Description

    Experience the history of this scenic and tranquil 78.95 acre symbolic farm in Titusville, the site of the circa 1731 Andrew Mershon House and Tavern! Dating to 1690 with records of the original builder Cornelius Anderson, this historic home was the landmark original Bear's Tavern, a prominent property in the area during the turning point of Revolutionary War. One cannot but feel the echoes of freedom that still reverberate across the peaceful acreage. Withstanding the test of time, the home site has been maintained to a level of exceptional care while preserving its integrity and functionality. The stately 4 bedroom 2.5 bath Colonial home embraces early American architecture and design with its gleaming pumpkin pine floors, exposed brick and fieldstone walls, dainty cupboards, original doors with foundry metal and Federal style fireplaces. The focal point of the home is the Grand Tavern room with handhewn wood beams and a walk in stone fireplace that exemplifies the bygone era. The oldest wing of the home, the quaint kitchen, still showcases the cooking hearth and Dutch doors. Rounding out the first level is a formal sitting room and formal dining room, currently used as an office and bedroom. The home has 2 distinct staircases leading to a separate master bedroom suite area and 2 additional bedrooms, a layout conducive to extended family or bed and breakfast potential. Finished walk up attic space on both sides of home provides for a cozy and spacious loft. Outdoors the patio and fish pond are reminiscent of an English garden flanked with boxwoods and a short stroll up the path allows one to relax under the gazebo. Detached 3 car garage hosts a workshop space and artist studio and can be modified for the serious collector or hobbyist. Enjoy the lush acreage suitable for horses, heritage livestock or heirloom crops. Current paddock and pasture is level and desirable for equestrian use, whether hacking across the open fields or enjoying a trail around the property perimeter. Don't miss your chance to hunt the wooded areas of the property or fish in your own stocked pond. Adjacent to Washington Crossing State Park, the most desirable location for the avid historian. Property is eligible for listing on the National Historic Registry. Highlighted as a property along the Colonial stagecoach route, this property still maintains its convenience for commuters with close proximity to Princeton, 40 minutes to Philadelphia, 1 hour to Manhattan and 3 hours to our n
