Farmhouse Friday: The Bavarian-Styled Beauty of Bucks County
We travel way up north to Kintnersville, Pennsylvania to scope out a farm property that dates back to the late 1700’s. Trust us, it’s well worth the trip. What awaits you at the end of your travels is an impeccably kept and luxuriously restored German bank house that is a sight to behold.
Set on 50+ acres of pristine Bucks County land, the home’s exterior has all the trappings of what you’d want in secluded, sun-drenched farmouse, including a gorgeous stone exterior, wide windows decked out with with classic red shutters and window boxes and a lovely second story porch with hardwood floors and ceiling fans.
Believe it or not, the restored interior rivals the curb (lawn?) appeal, largely due to the historical features that were kept and restored during renovations. What’s left is a decidedly farmhouse feel (wide plank wood floors, cozy rooms with a fireplace or wood stove, exposed beams and antique millwork) with all of the modern amenities, such as the high-end Draper kitchen or the wonderful three-season sunroom.
The home has more than a few show-stopping rooms, including the upper loft with a pitched roof, but the party room definitely takes the top spot, in our humble opinion. Converted out of the haymow section of the barn, the party room retained much of the rustic look from its former life as a place for storing hay, with hardwood floors, exposed beams and framing, tall wood-lined ceilings and a dramatic rear window wall, which brings a modern twist into the design.
Last, but not least, a swimming pool and tennis court were cut into the hillside and overlook the large pond.
