2707 River Rd

Cradled at the end of a long country lane is “One of Bucks County’s most meticulously preserved & restored stone houses”. Resting on a portion of an original land grant given by William Penn to George Pownall in the late 1600’s & settled by his son George Jr. & his wife Hanna circa 1710. With respect for the past & vision for the future, great thought & attention to detail have been dovetailed elevating a late 18th century home with its 21st century equal. Meticulous restoration & authenticity can be savored in this refined country estate. Balance & symmetry are seen in stunning pointed stonework, beaded siding, wood shake & metal seam roofs balanced by stately proportioned brick chimneys & period doors, lighting fixtures & hardware. Well planned landscaping, ornamental trees & shrubbery grace the property. Massive hewn stone steps, intricately stacked walls & walkways add to its appeal. Upon entering this remarkable home, you immediately sense a fascination to further explore, “a home like no other”. Lustrous pine floors & fine hardware add grace & charm to each of its rooms with an eye of savoring expectation. The formal living & sitting room w/ fireplaces have paneled cabinetry & bookshelves. Large D/R provides a special place for family gatherings. The tavern room keeps company with a perfectly proportioned fireplace & offers wet bar w/ fridge & wine cooler. Large country kitchen w/ plentiful cabinetry, high end appliances, soapstone counters, center island & walk-in pantry will please any experienced cook. The breakfast area is warmed by an impressive stone fireplace. Masterfully created great room with its inviting presence is the heart of the home. This wonderful space combines elements of its huge summer beam, exposed chamfered joists. It is complemented by a large mantle fireplace flanked by tall French doors that open to a marvelous, covered porch capturing pleasant views of woods & field. An adjacent media room enjoys similar rare architectural elements. Six fireplaces add to the ambience on those winter evenings! The luxurious main bedroom suite w/ sitting area & lavishly appointed limestone bath includes a double marble vanity, whirlpool tub, oversized shower w/ tumbled marble accents + 3 walk-in closets. 3 bedrooms, with their own character, a laundry room and an add’l bath are located on this level.

Add’l rooms at this level include sitting room + flex space room w/ striking exposed stone wall. The finished walk-out lower-level w/ radiant heated floor adds versatile space + kitchenette w/ micro-wave, dishwasher & Sub-Zero refrigerator & custom full bath w/tumbled marble shower details complete this space. A great spot to enjoy billiards, games, hobbies or just to chill! French doors open to a stone patio with easy access to the pool. A delightful 2 room guest cottage of consistent quality has wraparound private deck. Featuring kitchenette & full bath, random pine floors, cathedral ceilings, exposed beams. Spring house w/ garden storage adds to the charm. Sweeping lawn surrounds the home & leads you to a fabulous, heated, saltwater in-ground pool w/ separate spa. Stunning elements can be appreciated in the intricately designed ornamental ironwork fencing & gate. A sitting area between the stone bank barn & pool adds that perfect spot for outdoor entertaining. Across the courtyard driveway is a 3-car detached garage. Improvements by the current steward of this breathtaking home include new septic system, covered porch of superb craftsmanship & many finely enhanced items, too numerous to mention.
