Built in 1798 as a stately stone Bucks County manor house and expanded later with two additions that improved upon the original with modern conveniences, Serendipity Farm offers privacy and rural beauty just minutes from the center of Doylestown. The home~s 18th-century character shines in the large formal living room with magnificent fireplace that even has a blanket warmer built into the side with original iron door. From the formal living room and spacious dining-room you enter the foyer and then into another large room used as a family room, first-floor bedroom , office, library or even playroom. Highlights of the formal dining room include an exposed stone wall and French doors looking out on to the patio, gardens and pond. Adjacent to the dining room is a beautifully designed kitchen loaded with high-end appliances, a large island with bar seating and sink, a second sink, gas cooktop with griddle, double wall ovens, pantry storage and other amenities. A casual dining area opens into a wonderful, four-season sun room overlooking the grounds and pool. The pool house features a wet bar, lounge area, changing room and separate bathroom. Two staircases lead to the second and third floors. Two original bedrooms share a hall bath; one of the bedrooms also has a sitting/dressing room. An expansive main bedroom suite with exposed stone wall, sumptuous bath, dressing room with bank of closets and a sitting room complete this newer area of the house. Additional bedrooms are on the third floor along with a full bath. As a bonus, there is a finished walk-out lower level with full bar, bathroom and a wine room.On the grounds is a classic bank barn with four garages and a workshop, plus storage. Modify it if you collect cars ~ the space is there for your gems or for other hobbies. A studio for the writer or artist (the original ~she-shed~), a corn crib and a carriage house complete this bucolic scene. The carriage house has its own driveway and parking area and offers a complete residential space with two bedrooms and two full baths, including an addition with full bath so that single-floor living is possible. For the sophisticated buyer seeking the quality of a stone house along with modern conveniences in a beautiful setting, look no further than Serendipity Farm.
