    Northampton Township in Bucks County PA is the largest of the Hamptons, and lies east of Lower and Upper Southampton Townships. The Township was settled by English and Dutch colonists, and incorporated in 1722. The communities of Addisville, Churchville, Holland, Jacksonville, Richboro and Rocksville are all located within Northampton Township. 





    History
     


    In 1683, William Penn purchased from the Lenni Lenape Indians land lying between the Pennypack and Neshaminy Creeks including what is now Northampton Township. Dutch and French immigrants followed the original English settlers.  

    Many of the Dutch settled in the southeastern corner of the township in what came to be called "Holland". Churchville was originally called "Smoketown" because of the Dutch custom of smoking long clay pipes.  

    Probably named for the old city of Northampton in England, our Northampton in 1722 became one of the largest townships in Bucks County Taverns followed new roads and commerce. The Black Bear Tavern, at 2nd Street and Bustleton Pikes, and the White Bear Tavern, at 2nd Street Pike and Almshouse, were typical. Democrats met at the White Bear; Republicans met at the Black Bear.  

    The first of many schools in Northampton was built in 1737, and the Addisville Reformed Church, founded by the Dutch in 1710, is the oldest church.  

    Locally prominent families included the Cornells, whose farm on Holland Road was painted by Edward Hicks, and Henry Wynkoop, who was a delegate to the Third Provincial Congress in Philadelphia, and was elected to the first U.S. Congress in 1789.

    Title: Five Topics to Discuss With Your Real Estate Agent When Selling Your Home:

    Thinking of selling your home? Before you place the "For Sale" sign in front of your house, there are a few things you should consider in order to maximize your home value and make the sales process smooth and efficient.  Be prepared to discuss the following subjects with your real estate agent when you're ready to sell your home and you'll be one step ahead in the market.






    1) Best Time of Year to Put Your House on the Market

    Conventional wisdom dictates that spring is the best time for selling a home.  The weather is getting warmer, the school year is coming to an end, and people who have just received their tax refunds may now have extra cash to use for a down payment on a home.  However, since not everyone can sell a home in the spring, here are some other seasonal factors to consider. According to annual home sale data from the National Association of Realtors, the slowest selling months of the year are typically January and February, since fewer home sales occur during the holidays.  In spite of this, with less competition in the marketplace, you may be able to ask for a higher price for your home, or a quicker closing.  Additionally, temperate locations like Florida and California don't see the seasonal fluctuations in the housing market, where house-hunters are almost always looking.  And a late winter or early spring in the Northeast may extend the typical "selling season."  These seasonal variations, as well as a variety of local factors, will all influence the housing market in your area.  Be sure to talk to your real estate agent regarding the current state of the market and how it will affect the sale of your home.


    2) Open House Strategy and How to De-Clutter

    At an open house, first impressions count, so you'll want to enhance your home's perceived value. Make your home inviting by taking care of bothersome minor repairs; clean bathroom and kitchen counters and clear them of dishes and clutter. Arrange storage areas neatly and put unused items in a closet. If you have pets, consider having a neighbor watch them for the duration of the open house. It's a good idea for you to be absent during the open house, also. If you must be present, let your agent do the talking.


    Decorate your home to sell by arranging the furniture to look as spacious as possible. Add color and fragrance to any room with fresh flowers. Lastly, don't forget the outside of your home. Put away all gardening equipment and neatly arrange outdoor items like firewood or furniture. Even take a hard look at your mailbox and make sure it reflects the value and character of your home.


    3) Features to Accentuate

    While you may have long determined which aspects of your home you love, having a fresh set of eyes assess its best features is a smart idea. If you're considering selling your home, take the time to walk through it methodically with your real estate agent. Together you can determine which features of the home should be accentuated.  Does your home have a wonderful view? Make the most of it by sprucing up window treatments and arranging furniture to draw the eye toward the windows. Perhaps the location of your house is truly incredible. Your real estate agent can help accentuate this feature in sales and marketing materials.

    4) Desired Price and Bottom Line Price

    It's great to shoot high, but when determining your home value, it's also important to identify your bottom line. By assessing recent home sale statistics in your area, your real estate agent can recommend an appropriate target price range. Working with your agent, you can set an initial asking price, as well as privately determine the absolute lowest price you would comfortably accept for selling your home. By crunching the numbers and setting parameters early on, you can avoid emotional rollercoasters during the process of receiving, countering and accepting offers.

     5) Disclosures

    When selling your home, you may be obligated to disclose problems that could affect the property's value or desirability. In most states, it is illegal to fraudulently conceal major physical defects in your property, such as a basement that floods in heavy rains. And many states now require sellers to take a proactive role by making written disclosures on the condition of the property. Ask your real estate agent for the particular laws of your state.

    The 10 Hottest Homebuilding Trends For 2010

    These new features are exciting buyers and inspiring homebuilders:




    Solar Design

    Thanks to advancements in technology, solar roof panels are more attractive and efficient in storing solar heat and converting it into a viable energy source for the home.

    Passive solar design is also becoming more popular. Homeowners and builders are situating homes based on the angles of the sun for maximum exposure, resulting in natural heating and lighting for the home. This kind of solar design and construction helps cut utility costs while not detracting from the home's architectural style.


    Skylights with Sensors

    Skylights are usually built into your roof, so they're too high to open them manually. Today, thermostatically controlled skylights can automatically open when the home reaches a certain temperature.

    Built-in thermostats allow for skylights to open and close based on designated temperatures, thus keeping the home comfortable in an energy efficient manner. By taking advantage of the natural temperature outside, you won't have to rely as much on heating and cooling devices in the home, which contribute to high utility bills.

    Sustainable Building Materials

    Using sustainable materials in construction helps conserve natural resources and limit your carbon footprint on the environment. Materials such as wood, glass, cork, rubber and plastic can be recycled and reused by companies that turn them into construction materials like flooring, decking, countertops, cabinets and even carpeting.

    Like the kitchen flooring seen here, which was made out of a composite mix of cork and different plastics, sustainable materials are low maintenance and long lasting, making them a smart, green choice in home construction.

    Wrap-Free Sheathing Systems

    Wrap-free systems, like this ZIP System roof and wall sheathing, are an eco-friendly alternative to costly house wrap or felt. After the sheathing system is installed, the siding and roof covering can be installed right on top of the sheathing, protecting the home from moisture.

    LED lighting

    LED lighting is a creative and energy efficient way to add decorative lighting to any space, indoors and out. LED lights come in an array of colors, so whether you prefer a basic white light or want to spice it up with a touch of red, as seen in this kitchen, LED lights are an easy way to bring a little eco-friendly style into the home.



    Parking Lifts

    Not only do parking lifts look awesome, but their purpose is pretty smart, too. Many homeowners are moving closer to pedestrian-friendly urban areas, where there's more density and less space.

    Parking lifts are an economical way to use what little space you might have and take parking to new heights. By building up, you don't need to build out, meaning you use less land.

    On-Demand Water Heating

    Tankless water heaters are one of the best ways to lower your utility bills. They eliminate the need for a storage tank and dramatically increase energy efficiency by only heating water when you need it.

    Radiant Heated Flooring

    Radiant heating is more efficient than forced-air heating because no energy is lost through ducts, therefore the heat lasts longer. Plus, the lack of circulating air is perfect for those with severe allergies. Hydronic systems, which are liquid-based, use little electricity and can be heated with a variety of energy sources, from gas, oil-fired or wood-fired boilers, and even solar water heaters.

    Rain Chains

    An alternative to a downspout, rain chains collect rainwater that would usually pour out of a downspout or gutter and divert them for other uses. There are systems that filter rainwater and then you can collect them in storage containers, which can be used for tasks like watering flowers and plants.   


    HVAC Air Filtration Systems

    Today's HVAC systems can come with high-tech air filtration and purification systems designed to improve the air quality in your home and the health of your family. An effective HVAC system also maintains healthy air circulation to eliminate mold or mildew growth in the home.

    7 Must-Know Kitchen Design Trends

    The kitchen continues to be the most important room in the home. By investing in this space, you ARE sure to attract buyers:

    At a panel during the International Builders Show in Las Vegas, Darcy Garneau of EDI Architecture, Jillian Pritchard Cooke of DES-SYN and John Thatch of Dahlin Group Architecture Planning shared their insight into the trends that are exciting buyers and inspiring homebuilders for 2010.

    With the kitchen continuing to be the most important room in the home, Garneau, Cooke and Thatch outlined the biggest design trends now being seen in kitchen design. 

    Sustainable Materials

    Kitchens that use materials such as bamboo, sustainably harvested woods and recycled glass not only help keep our planet pretty, but also add style and visual interest to the kitchen space itself. These materials are often manufactured with low- or no-formaldehyde glues, which protect the home's indoor air quality as well.
     

    Floor-to-Ceiling Wood

    Natural materials, such as wood, help blur the line between indoors and out, bringing a warm and inviting feeling to the space while seamlessly bringing all aspects of the kitchen together. 

    Neutral Color Palate

    Whites and other natural colors are truly timeless. They can work with almost any architectural style while allowing other aspects of the kitchen to shine, such as a great granite or butcher-board countertop, recessed LED lighting or Energy Star stainless steel appliances.


     

    Efficient Floor Plan

    Kitchens are the new family room, so opening up the space to allow for socializing and entertaining turns a kitchen into a multi-functional space. 

    Custom Cabinetry

    Specialized storage, as seen here with glass-plated cabinets, not only adds visual interest, but also keeps clutter from getting in the way of your kitchen's design. 

    Energy-Saving Appliances

    Luxury appliances, like stainless steel professional grade stoves and ovens, set the tone for a high-end kitchen with sleek lines and polished look. Even better is the fact that many of these upgraded appliances are now energy-efficient and are great for your kitchen and the environment. 

    Mix-and-Match Materials

    Mixing different materials, like the butcher block countertops and marble backsplashes seen here, add visual interest and allow for you to play around with certain aspects of different architectural styles making the space all your own.

    Where to Eat This Weekend RESTAURANTS WITH TELEVISIONS WHERE YOU CAN DINE & STILL CATCH THE GAME: 

    10 Arts Bistro & Lounge by Eric Ripert
    The swanky spot in the Ritz-Carlton serves only sustainable seafood under the direction of chef de cuisine Jen Carroll, along with elegant fare like celeriac soup with truffles and fazzolletti with pumpkin and chestnuts. But Phillies fans won’t want to miss dessert: pastry chef Monica Glass’s Phillies cupcakes (pictured). Traditional red velvet cake is topped with cream cheese frosting and a red “P”; order a trio of either three red velvet or three different flavors (apple cinnamon, white chocolate pomegranate, red velvet) for $10. There are two TVs in the bar and the sound will be on.
    10 Arts, 10 Avenue of the Arts, 215-523-8273

    Barclay Prime
    Stephen Starr’s Rittenhouse Square steakhouse has brought in two TVs especially for the playoffs. They’ll be set up in the lounge area and the sound will be on.
    Barclay Prime, 237 South 18th Street, 215-732-7560

    333 Belrose
    Dine on crabcakes, wood-grilled steaks or chicken quesadillas at this Radnor favorite. There are two TVs in the bar and the sound will be on.

    333 Belrose
    , 333 Belrose Lane, Radnor, 610-293-1000



    Brauhaus Schmitz

    Soccer fans head to this South Street beerhall for World Cup matches, but the authentic German fare (and $3 Spaten lagers during all Phillies playoff games) makes this a worthy destination for baseball, too. There is one TV in the dining area and two above the bar. Don’t miss their Best of Philly award-winning Bavarian pretzels. According to management, they play it by ear, but the sound will most likely be on.
    Brauhaus Schmitz, 718 South Street, 267-909-8814

    Bar Ferdinand
    The NoLibs’ tapas spot has carted in two TVs for the Phillies playoff games. Snack on Serrano ham croquettes or dates stuffed with Marcona almonds and Cabrales yogurt while you catch the game. The sound will be on.
    Bar Ferdinand, 1030 North 2nd Street, 215-923-1313

    Devil’s Den
    If you’re among the first 50 people through the door of the South Philly gastropub for each Phillies playoff game, you’ll score a custom rally towel (pictured). Yards beers are $1 off during the game, which pair very nicely with chef Alex Urena’s beercentric dishes like mussels Diablo. There are two big TVs in the bar and a large projector pulled down in the dining area for games. The sound will be on.
    Devil’s Den, 1148 South 11th Street, 215-339-0855

    Distrito
    Every time the Phillies hit a homer during the playoffs, Jose Garces’s University City Mexican spot will hand out a free can of Tecate. Watch the game on one of the three high-definition televisions in the downstairs Cantina or on in the second floor lounge. The sound will be on in the second floor lounge, but off in the Cantina.
    Distrito, 3945 Chestnut Street, 215-222-1657

    Percy Street Barbecue
    Barbecue? Check. Beer? Check. Baseball? Check. In addition to Texas-style smoked ‘cue spot, the South Street spot is serving up a progressive beer special: all local craft beers on draft will be $4 per pint during the first game. If the Phillies win, they’ll be $3 per pint during the second game. And if they win the second game, then they’ll be $2 for the third game, etc. There’s one TV in the bar and one in the dining room and the sound will be on at both.

    Percy Street Barbecue
    ,
    600 South 9th Street, 215-625-8510

    Pizzeria Stella
    Starr’s Head House Square pizzeria serves fresh-out-of-the-oven pies and has a TV in its new bar area, adjacent to the main dining room. The sound will be on.
    Pizzeria Stella, 420 South 2nd Street, 215-320-8000

    Sampan
    The Midtown Village Asian fusion spot has a TV at the bar. Take advantage of their epic Scorpion Bowl cocktail to take the edge off of the anxiety of who’s going to win — and to accompany Philly cheesesteak bao buns or chicken satay. The sound will be on.
    Sampan, 124 South 13th Street, 215-732-3501

    R2L
    If the view atop Liberty Two isn’t too distracting, you might want to take in the game at the lounge at Daniel Stern’s high-in-the-sky spot. Sip on a Phillies-red Manhattan and watch the TV in the bar, where the sound will be on.
    R2L, 50 South 16th Street, 215-564-5337



    Stone Rose

    Jason Lipnicki’s local interpretations of hearty American meals — herb-roasted pork loin stuffed with Lancaster County goat cheese and braised beef short ribs over mac’n’cheese — are a great companion for the Phillies. There are two TVs in the bar and one in the dining room.
    Sound will be on for the last two innings.
    Stone Rose
    , 822 Fayette Street, Conshohocken, 484-532-7300

    Xochitl
    Over in Head House Square, Steve Cook and Michael Solomonov’s Mexican restaurant has two flat-screens at the bar. Order up some chicharrones and margaritas (they’re half-price during the game, at the bar only) and watch the games with the sound on.
    Xochitl
    , 408 South 2nd Street, 215-238-7280

    Union Trust
    The Wash West steakhouse has installed a flat-screen TV in one of the private dining rooms (the Chestnut room, which has a capacity of 60) and they are taking reservations for two to 10 people for those who want to watch the games in that room with the sound on. There’s also a TV at the bar, but there, the sound will be off.
    Union Trust, 717 Chestnut Street, 215-925-6000
