A Fabulous Farmstead in Bucks for $2.495M
You can find classic 18th-century farmhouses all over central and upper Bucks County. You can even find some on large lots like the 12-acre one this stunner sits on.
But you’re going to be hard pressed to find one that’s guaranteed to retain its country character forever like this one is.
That’s because this intelligently updated, impeccably maintained estate farmhouse is encircled by 1,000 acres of protected open space.
What that means, among other things, is that you will always be able to invite your city-mouse friends out for a true weekend in the country and be able to accommodate and entertain them in style.
You have plenty of room for them inside as well as out. In addition to the five bedrooms other than the captivating master suite, there’s a one-bedroom apartment over the garage that you could use for guests if you don’t want to use it as an in-law, caretaker or au pair suite.
Gorgeous fireplaces abound in this home. You’ll find them in the living room, in the huge dining room that can accommodate dinner for 24, in the kitchen with its distinctive half-moon-windowed breakfast area, and in the master bedroom.
Outside, you, your family and your friends will enjoy the attractively landscaped grounds and the in-ground pool in its own “secret garden.” There’s another fireplace in the poolside patio as well as a pavilion to which everyone can repair should the skies open up during your pool party.
Your children will attend school in the highly regarded Central Bucks district, and if for some reason you feel the need for something a touch more urban, Peddler’s Village, New Hope and Washington Crossing are all a short drive away.
