The perfect Bucks County estate location ? five minutes from the Delaware River and Canal, the Phillips Mill Historic District, the energy of Lambertville-New Hope, and major commuter roads to New York and Philadelphia. Holmquist Farm, named for Karline Holmquist and her family, founders in the early 1900s of the progressive Holmquist School for Girls, nestles into an exclusive horse farm neighborhood, home to billionaires, theater producers, TV personalities, antique dealers, and real-estate executives. Sitting proudly on a hilltop, set in a pear orchard on 12+ acres in Solebury, and overlooking the property's verdant hayfield, the European-style stone and stucco farmhouse has a commanding south-facing view of rolling hills, cornfields, and New Hope's spectacular summer fireworks. Five bedrooms, five bathrooms, 4500+ SF on three levels, with a lower level featuring its own walk-out entrance. The house has been completely renovated and modernized by its owner, a published NY interior designer. Holmquist Farm features charming details such as warm fieldstone and stucco exterior walls, pegged oak floors, and living room ceiling beams/paneling with an oversized wood-burning fireplace. Updated features include three-zone propane heating/cooling system, climate-controlled 600+ bottle wine cellar, home cinema with stadium seating, open-plan epicurean kitchen with all new appliances, double-volume great room with gas fireplace and 19th-century French marble surround, and two master suites (on the first and second floor). Other notable features include the great room TV concealed behind a soaring gold-framed mirror, Rosso Levanto marble slab range backsplash, master spa with heated floor, and a 40' x 20' heated salt water swimming pool with sun shelf, vanishing edges, and nearby secluded outdoor shower. The low-maintenance grounds are extensively landscaped with new driveways and lighting features. Leading off the great room is a quarter-acre enclosed lawn and bluestone patio with stone-and-stucco built-in barbecue, ideal for large events and parties. Additional bluestone patio rooms open up from the first-floor master spa and dining room. A 32-foot-wide parking court fronts the new barn-like three-car garage that includes a studio with an antique soapstone sink and work benches. Holmquist Farm features yesterday's charms and tomorrow's conveniences in an ideal location, with turnkey estate living in prestigious Solebury Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
