Admit it. You enjoy taking drives on the back roads of Bucks County and fantasizing about weekend getaways at some picturesque lodge hidden away in the woods by the side of a stream, don’t you?

What if you found out you could spend every day of the year in one of those weekend getaway lodges?

Take a good look at the photo above, for there it is. Then wipe the drool off your keyboard and read on.

This home was custom-built in 2001 around the remains of a stone structure that had sat on this site. Around that heart the architect designed “Thunder Gust Mill,” a sophisticated modern home loaded with rustic style.

Living room

You’ll see plenty of evidence of that style on the main floor, in both the living room with its log-beamed ceiling and the Roger Wright-designed kitchen.

Kitchen and dining room

That kitchen, however, is anything but rustic in its equipment.

Master bedroom

Master suite sitting room

The full-floor master suite upstairs ditto, even if it does bear the elements of country charm in things like the soaking tub in its bathroom. (The other two bedrooms are on the main floor.)

The most sophisticated rustic elements, however, are to be found around this home on its 15.5-acre lot. Geddes Run flows through it, and that gave rise to several very special outdoor features.

Deck and Geddes Run

A large wood deck, accessed via French doors from the living room, looks out over a natural swimming hole.

Gazebo and terrace

So does a gazebo with its own stone terrace that sits beside the creek.

Rear patio

That terrace, in turn, is connected to a stone patio that’s connected to the dining room and kitchen via French doors.

Manicured lawns ringed with perennials, terraced garden beds and steep cliffs rising from the opposite creek bank add to the site’s natural beauty, and lighting on the pathways and terraces let you enjoy it all at night too.

This ideal rural retreat also just happens to sit roughly midway between Doylestown and Lansdale, both of which have town centers filled with great places to shop and dine.
