It took Al DeLuca 2 years to complete this impressive Virginia Brick Manor home located on 10 lush acres in Solebury Township. The stunning curb appeal, inspired by Carter’s Grove, captures the essence of this home which won an Architectural Award by Colonial Williamsburg in 1991. The governor’s driveway intersects with a paver pathway and through the formal gardens leading up to three porticos that grace the front. Here double entry doors open, and the grand entrance foyer welcomes guests onto custom marble flooring and a view of the harp-shaped staircase. 11,000+/- sq.ft. of pure luxury includes high ceilings, custom millwork, built-ins, Brazilian Cherry and Mahogany wood flooring highlighted by the natural light radiating through an abundance of windows. A wonderful layout for entertaining begins with the stylish Living Room featuring a historic reproduction fireplace. Pocket doors easily separate the spaces, or open into the Family Room with built-in wet bar. Enjoy hosting both formal and informal dinners in the Dining Room, also with a wood burning fireplace, and a Butler’s Pantry complete with cabinets, sink and dishwasher. The cook’s kitchen is well appointed with Cherry cabinetry, center island and stainless steel appliances, including double wall ovens and Sub-Zero refrigerator, and is open to the 2-story atrium with a wall of windows. French doors lead to the extensive paver patio and overlook the sweeping, manicured grounds - perfect for outdoor entertaining and relaxation. Ceramic tile floors continue into the Music Room. The Family Room has rectangular beamed ceilings and is anchored by a stone fireplace with raised hearth. Brick floors in the back hallway lead to an Office/Study with another wood burning fireplace. Guests will be delighted to stay in the first floor guest quarters, en suite with a full bathroom. Two half baths, a conveniently located Laundry Room and a back staircase complete the main level. Upstairs the Main Bedroom Suite is privately located away from the secondary bedrooms and features high ceilings, a sitting room, a dressing room with two walk-in closets in addition to a clothing storage closet and a walk-in Cedar closet, and glorious views of the Bucks County countryside. A luxurious Master Bathroom is complete with dual sinks, a jetted tub, separate stall shower with non-slip floor and glass enclosure, and private water closet with bidet. Four additional bedrooms on this level include a hobby/play room. Two of the spacious bedrooms share a bathroom, while a Jack-‘n-Jill bathroom is shared by the two remaining bedrooms. A full bathroom on the third floor provides flexible uses for the large, open room also on this level, such as a game or media room. The unfinished lower level offers even more room for expansion, or amazing storage space. This outstanding home was custom-built and includes a 3-car attached garage.
