    The Doylestown Inn, a landmark in the Bucks County seat since 1902, is scheduled for sheriff’s sale in September for a debt of $2.9 million.

     Deauville V is listed on the county’s Sheriff Sale Real Estate Sale Listings for Sept. 9 for owing the money to Univest National Bank and Trust. Michael Welch, who bought the 20-room hotel in 1998, operates several parnerships under the Deauville name.

    Welch renovated the hotel in 2001, and it now rents office space on the first two floors and luxury inn rooms on the  third floor. Standard rooms with a queen bed cost $155 to 205 a night, depending on the season, while premium rooms with a king bed cost $180 to $225, each with private bath.

   The inn also has a first-floor bar open to the public on Friday and Saturday nights.

   The dramatic white-and-green building on West State Street was originally built in 1871 and operated as a hat shop and shoe store, according to the inn’s website, www.doylestowninn.com. It was expanded to a third builidng in 1937.
