Modern architecture in Pennsylvania represents a time of boundless optimism — sophistication of design, engineering and craftsmanship conveying eloquence through visual expression. Behold “Dolce Chiarezza”, meaning "sweet clarity", where dreams are designed through walls of crystalline glass . This strikingly original Bucks County estate has been forged by over three centuries of avant-garde style. The clever unification consists of a 1700s stacked-stone house, a 1800s Victorian annex and a 1900s stone-and-glass annex that instantly enamors. Its elaborate simplicity, superb preservation and surroundings ease the eye as intended by its ever-evolving re-imagination. Intimate as well as revelatory, “Dolce Chiarezza” offers exceptional space and opportunity. It is impersonal, and breathtaking by each turn— behaving as an exemplary example of modernism in its warmest and most creative state. Perched high above a cascading Paunnacussing Creek, it’s simple yet extraordinary fluidity with nature creates a sense of tranquility and lure. Upon entry, a sea-of-slate flooring and window-walls entertain the eye. Ambiance is at your disposal, with enchanting wildlife just beyond the glass, and the home’s nimble Phillips-Hue color-changing programmable lighting system at work. The space surpasses functionality by raising the bar, as does the kitchen. Adorned with hidden surprises it boasts a sense-of-style and sleekness, with Mercer tiles, refinished cabinetry with new hardware, and state-of-the-art appliances. Enter a realm of opulence in the Primary Suite, conveniently located on the home’s main level. This is a room defined by rustic extravagance— adorned with newly installed whimsical wallpaper, an exposed stone wall, heated marble flooring and soaring cathedral ceilings. There is a fireplace, an incredible full bath with multiple sinks, a walk-in shower, and abundant closet space to house your wardrobes. French doors offer access to the rear patio with views evoking a European-like landscape. Back inside, take the original pie stairs up to the second floor, where you'll find a full bathroom, bedroom and incredibly spacious roof deck. The ground level is a treasure trove of delights, including a charming fireplace, sophisticated built-ins (complete with a sneaky Murphy bed!), a full bathroom, wine cellar, laundry sanctuary, and a bluestone three-season room. In this home, you are able to witness the beauty of each season unfold before you, and from every vantage point. The grounds here exhibit a series of stone terraces, walkways and gardens, a koi pond, fountains, and a vintage greenhouse for the cultivation of one’s very own fruits, vegetables, and herbs. A separate 1700s wooden and slate-roofed Carriage House, positioned just steps away from the Main House, has its own Victorian-era annex, providing secondary living quarters, offices and/or a guest house. “Dolce Chiarezza” is as dynamic as it gets, and the Bucks County-masterpiece has received widespread recognition because of this, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and featured in publications such as The New York Times. This admiration can be credited most recently to its pristine condition, which has been made possible through the current owner’s state-of-the-art stewardship and preservation during their brief yet cherished time here. Behold the majesty of Fleecydale Road, nestled in the verdant embrace of Bucks County, and adorned with nature’s quaint treasures. Few interior design styles have captivated our imaginations the way “Dolce Chiarezza” has. Experience this sensational property today.
