2957 Columbia Drive, Bensalem.

Any potential home buyer looking for a Bucks County property — who also happens to be a fan of the 1965 film The Sound of Music — will want to see the four-bedroom, 2.5-bath Colonial at 2957 Columbia Drive in Bensalem.

It features no Tyrolean architecture. It’s not bordered by a waterway in which children can be accidentally tipped from an unsteady boat. And there’s no nearby convent from which a novice nun enters and entrances all.

What it does have is a rather interesting addition that echoes the Julie Andrews/Christopher Plummer cinematic gem.

But first, the entry.

It’s a little small for staging a seven-voice chorus of singers belting out “So Long, Farewell.” But nonetheless, it’s bright and welcoming.

,

The kitchen has its essentials well-placed. A home chef could easily whip up a quick apfel strudel here and serve it with pink lemonade.

,

.

The master bedroom is quiet and restful, conducive to bedtimes that are “strictly observed,” even during thunderstorms.

,

.

And now that gazebo-like addition. It offers plenty of room for dancing, even with kicks, spins, and the numerous lifts associated with a budding, young romance.

.

.

2957 Columbia Drive, Bensalem, has an asking price of $525,000 (or 6.65 million Austrian schillings, but those were replaced by the Euro in 2002).
