465 E State St, Doylestown.

Welcome to the John Fell House, built circa 1733. Washington reportedly stayed with Fell (a physician) when the Continental Army camped in Doylestown in Summer 1778. In fact, the home became one of Washington’s numerous headquarters in the area. 465 E. State St. can now be the place where a history-buff owner proudly hangs his or her powdered wig.

The site has definitely retained its historical look in the exterior.

The living room and the master bedroom, too, sport an 18th Century vibe.

But the kitchen is definitely rooted in 2021, both in style and function.

And the property boasts an outdoor pool, which George may have mistaken for an oversized watering trough for his horse.

This property, a unique study in architectural dichotomies, has a listed price of $1,575,000.
