On the Market: Expanded Cabin in the Woods in Chalfont
You're in the middle of suburbia living in this rustic yet stylish house for sale, but it sure doesn't feel like you are.
And now for a most impressive magic trick: Watch this house for sale make its neighbors disappear.
Sure, you can make out glimpses of the tract houses that surround this handsome log house’s 0.86-acre lot in Chalfont between the stands of tall trees that dot it. But it’s very easy for you to just tune them out and imagine that you’re away in a cabin in the woods, with nothing but endless forest and the sounds of nature for companions.
Except this cabin in the woods has a spectacular post-and-beam log house attached to it.
The post-and-beam structure was added onto the back of the original 1979 log cabin in the early 1990s. It turned this house into a true twofer: a cozy, comfortable, intimate, rustic log cabin combined with a stylish, spacious suburban country manor designed for entertaining friends and family.
You can do the latter in the soaring, two-story-high great room, which boasts two wood stoves and gets loads of light through its many large windows. French doors open from the great room onto an expansive deck that lets you take the party outside in good weather.
A mudroom connects the great room to the original cabin’s eat-in kitchen, which has plenty of room for you to prepare elaborate feasts.
The stone wall on the interior side of the kitchen is actually the back of the family room’s stone fireplace, which is outfitted with a wood stove. Here you can spend those more intimate moments in a warm, embracing environment.
The upstairs bedrooms in the log cabin have whole-log walls and beamed ceilings, while those in the post-and-beam addition boast skylights. The master suite is on the first floor of the post-and-beam wing, allowing for one-floor living that will allow both you and this house to age gracefully.
This house also has a full finished basement with space for a home theater and recreation.
If you enjoy rustic environments yet want to live close to urban convenience, you’ll be hard pressed to beat this house for sale. It’s just outside the center of Chalfont and convenient to its Regional Rail station. Shopping, dining and entertainment also await you in nearby Lansdale, Montgomeryville and Doylestown.
Close to everything yet it feels like you’re miles from anything? Sounds like a winner to us.
