New Hope’s “CrossBow” Estate Nabs a Spot on Trulia’s Unforgettable Doors List
We get click bait-y emails all the time from Trulia that announce things like Hottest Fall Baths and 39 Kitchen Concepts You’ll Love. It’s pretty rare that we click through to the story, but when you see a headline that reads Front Door Designs You’ll Never, Ever Forget, you simply just throw your hands in the air and say, “You got me, Trulia! [click]”
Thankfully, the lists features a home from Bucks County that really does live up to the headline. The CrossBow estate in New Hope is quite a unique property, and the entrance is an illuminated covered bridge that’s suspended over a small pond, which you can see in the gallery after the jump. According to Brie Dyas, who compiled the list for Trulia.com, the magical portal is actually a nod to the many covered bridges in the region, and it’s also topped with a dragon weathervane!
While the home is packed with many incredible features, including a custom kitchen with rich heat-patina copper and hammered coppered fascias, oak parquet floors and a master bath with a sauna, the real showstoppers are the various relaxing spaces that offer views of the sylvan landscape and nearby Buckingham Mountain, giving it the allure of a nature preserve.
There’s a gazebo that overlooks the pond, floor-to-ceiling windows in the corner of the great room and a freaking tree house, which overlooks two ponds.
Guys and gals, there’s a tree house.
Dyas says that the 10-acre home was previously “owned by an author and world-famous sculptor,” and you can see that they really made their mark on this special property. Check it out in the gallery below.
