Nestled on over 6 serene acres in the heart of Upper Makefield is the Samuel Merrick House, a wonderful 1773 authentic farmhouse with a modern addition. A piece of Bucks County history, this home served as the headquarters of General Nathanael Greene and the location where Washington and his officers held their final council before crossing the Delaware to the Battle of Trenton. This gorgeous and bright farmhouse has so much to offer along with its rich history, beautifully detailed both inside and out with features such as exposed stone, wood beams, deep windowsills and pumpkin pine hardwood floors that unite all rooms of the home.
