Who Wants to Live in This Bauhaus Inspired Residence in Bucks County?
Walter Gropius, founder of the Bauhaus School and a prominent figure in modern architecture, may not have had a direct hand in crafting this striking sugar cube-esque home, but his work did influence several of its features, which are grounded in “an emphasis on functional design.” Built circa 1931, the Modernist New Hope construction has since seen both renovation work and later additions that certainly seem to have kept it in pristine condition.
Upon arrival to the unique house, one can expect to be met with a custom-made stainless steel sheathed door that opens into a vestibule with Pennsylvania black slate flooring and stainless cherry accented railing. From here there are two entryways: one leads into the living room (California burled pine floors, an elevated library space, fireplace, curvilinear staircase, sliding doors overlooking a private wall terrace with a half-moon fountain); the other, the tray-ceilinged dining room (where there’s another fireplace). The latter has access to the chef’s kitchen, a room offering upgraded stainless steel appliances, concrete counters, and a breakfast area with a curvilinear window looking out to blue atlas cedar.
(Long story short: Look at the gallery.)
The private master suite with its silver leafed cabinetry and custom terrazzo tiled bathroom is also on the main floor, along with the window-surrounded family room and its European wood stove, Brazilian mahogany wood floor, and spiral staircase ascending to two guest bedrooms.
