949 Highland Rd

Hidden amongst the rolling hills and lush greenery, and set back far from the main road, you'll find the Mid-Century Modern hidden gem at 949 Highland Road, seemingly inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright. This 4 bedroom 4 bath home is ideal for any nature lover or someone looking for an oasis away from the hustle and bustle. This home rests high above Hough's Creek, nestled into the sloping countryside, allowing for ultimate privacy, however all of life's conveniences are just minutes away. Enter the home through the double-wide panel doors into the great room. The plank and beam ceiling of the impressive great room, creates drama & dimension to this space. The window-lined wall gives you a fantastic view of the mature trees, and the creek below, creating a towering bird's eye view. The original field stone wall and double-sided fireplace box is shared with the formal dining room, truly a special & unique feature. The formal dining room also has recessed lighting and a sliding glass door entry to the wrap-around porch. The casual kitchen is perfectly placed next to the formal dining room and allows for great entertaining flow. The eat-in kitchen has a beverage area, an island, stone tops, a wall oven, an induction stovetop, with an abundance of natural light pouring in from all sides, notably a remarkable space. A laundry room and a half-bathroom are also connected to the kitchen and the oversized 2 car garage access. Beyond the kitchen lies an octagon-shaped sunroom, with vaulted ceilings, with incredible panoramic views of the backyard. This room is magnificent, and the perfect segway from this modern home, to the 1.5 acres of bucolic beauty. All of this great space is the focal point, however the 3 bedrooms on this level all have a zen vibe all to their own. Wake up in the primary bedroom, to a wall of windows to the great green of the outdoors. It truly is noteworthy. Nothing beats the feeling of this room, and the other two bedrooms all present the same, through their nature drenched windows. This first floor is truly a marvel, however the lower level is remarkable too. The floating staircase brings you to a wide open media room, complete with walk out sliders, bringing you closer to the green grounds it was built upon. On this level you will find the fourth bedroom ensuite, which has an extensive built-in desk complete shelving, and window for inspiration. To complete this level there is a large storage area and a utility room which was a workshop, now an inspirational music room. There is nothing quite like 949 Highland Rd, come see for yourself. Minutes outside of Newtown Borough, Yardley, Washington Crossing, with direct connections 295 & 95. You can get anywhere from here very easily, that is, if you want to leave this incredible sanctuary.
