Welcome to Double Datestone Homestead. A long winding drive passes through a rolling country landscape until finally the historic main home reveals itself at the terminus of a large parking court. Terraced patios and lush plantings perfectly accentuate the quintessential Bucks County stone manor and lead inside to the inviting entry parlor. Sunshine pours in via double glass doors as you follow the grand yet comfortable floor plan through the main public rooms. The living room is elegant, yet unimposing, with its walk-in fireplace and deeply set windows overlooking the natural splendor beyond. Charming, well-preserved period details are present throughout, including in the expansive formal dining room with its own fireplace and an adjacent bay-windowed alcove ideally suited for buffet-style serving or retiring post-dinner. The eat-in kitchen respects the home's heritage while adding tasteful modern updates like marble counters, and Viking appliances. A side door opens to a covered rear terrace. Through the mud/laundry room find access to the two-car, attached garage. Completing the first level is an in-law or au pair suite, with sitting room, full bath and private entry. On the second level find four bedrooms including the master with ensuite bath and ample walk-in closet space. Two ancillary bedrooms share a full bath, while a third enjoys its own and offers pie-stair access to the kitchen. The third floor holds two more bedrooms and yet another full bath. Stroll down a stone path, past the enclosed, raised-bed garden to find the private, 4-bedroom guest cottage. Hedge rows cuff the in-ground pool area, while a pool house with bathroom and kitchenette make for fun and easy summer-time entertaining. Also on the grounds is a multi-story, 17,000 sq. ft. barn with custom theatre and ample room for recreation of every sort. A naturalist's dream, this impressive homestead dates to the times of William Penn, and offers incomparable fine country living!
