Everything you want in a country house is here in the peaceful green hills of central Bucks County. Just minutes to Doylestown and New Hope, both home to countless small businesses, boutiques, arts and entertainment venues, and great restaurants; this solidly built, 18th-century stone farmhouse is situated off a winding road that exudes a calming rural ambience. A long driveway crosses over Paunacussing Creek and leads to an ideal, private retreat on more than 5 acres of beautiful grounds. The seamlessly integrated 21st century addition perfectly complements the original farmhouse with an open floor plan that has the spacious kitchen, complete with commercial-grade appliances and a rich mahogany island, flowing into a great room featuring a beautiful stone fireplace and a step-up informal dining area with two sets of French doors leading to a large, blue stone patio. Also, in the newer section of the home is the large, main-level master suite with a sunny sitting area or office space, and a delightful two-sided fireplace shared with the over-sized master bathroom. French doors lead from the master bedroom to a lovely garden terrace. Note the stairs leading to generous, unfinished space above the master suite that could either be finished or reconfigured into a dramatic cathedral ceiling. The large formal dining room, complete with butler~s bar, library with enormous stone fireplace, and living room are in the original part of the house. All feature French doors that lead to the lovely terraces and gardens. The second floor consists of four additional bedrooms, all with hardwood floors, and two full baths. The third floor is an open, flexible space that offers endless use options-playroom, yoga or meditation space, hobby room-whatever you desire. A bonus is the heated in-ground pool & spa with a heated pool house, all very naturally integrated within the ruins of an old stone barn. This wonderful home is in the highly rated New Hope-Solebury School District less than an hour from Philadelphia and approximately 90 minutes from NYC. This is the perfect week-end retreat or a restful primary home with easy access to the New York, Princeton, Philadelphia business corridor.
