Now entering a third century, this Classic Bucks County Stone Farmhouse - Circa 1816, is ready for a new stewardship. Like a favorite soft sweater this home warmly embraces upon first touch. Having a provenance that dates to an original 1743 stone cottage and several expansive enhancements - the two-foot thick, historic stone walls establish a solidly calm presence along a quiet cul-d-sac lane, moments from Lake Nockamixon's shoreline. The generously proportioned formal & casual spaces flow smoothly, allowing for an ease of entertaining & everyday living.
The antique charms of the original random-width flooring, generous installations of deep set windows, hand hewn beams, original millwork & exposed interior stone work fillout the first chapter. The second would be the 'heart of the home' suite - comprised of a custom kitchen w/handcrafted solid-wood cabinetry & granite counters, a unique breakfast room entryway, and a stone wrapped sunroom with walk-in fireplace.
Upstairs has been uniquely configured over the generations, allowing for a complete sense of privacy from the home's public spaces. Enhancing this sense of retreat is the separation of the Master from the 3 supporting bedrooms. Forming this transitional point between the two is the vaulted ceiling hall & unique guest bath with radiant flooring & heated towel bars. The main bedroom is comfortable in size with a barn-beam peaked ceiling and panoramic views of the upper paddocks, barn & riding ring. The en-suite full bath w/radiant floors, heated towel bars, jetted tub & separate shower is equally generous in size. The grounds are wonderfully divided into two distinct worlds & styles of living.
Nearest the residence are striking perennial gardens, dual koi ponds, gracefully private seating areas, and an outdoor stone fireplace. The other lifeblood of the property is the current configuration for horses with 5 split-rail fenced paddocks, a 'rubber footing' riding & jumping ring (100'x200'), and a 2-story - 10 stall barn complete w/tack room, covered horse trailer parking, garage, cavernous second floor spaces and a unique upstairs game room.
The property could be ideally suited for the car collector, wood working hobbyist, budding horticulturist or yes, even as it is now for equestrian pursuits. The FIVE Bedroom Septic System, installed in 2001, may well enhance the future possibilities of this comfortable, yet practical piece of Bucks County Countryside, that is minutes to Nockamixon's boat launch.
