The most exquisite details within Red Gate Barn are the ones left untouched, yet brilliantly preserved, throughout its centuries-long metamorphosis. Humble beginnings once defined the lofty structure, originally constructed at the dawn of 19th century, before the allure of the mid-century modern revolution reinvented its fieldstone facets and capabilities. It was then that Earl Jamison, famous developer of Peddler's Village, made the architectural-jump of a lifetime, embarking on one of his earliest single-family conversion masterpieces. Red Gate Barn is a Bucks County treasure, baptized in the lush greenery of the near-2 acre property, and backed by township-owned preserved land. During the past 25 years, the current owners have continued enhancing the reimagined bank barn by thoughtfully combining recycled barnwood and beams with modern touches and appliances. This dynamic marriage of cozy-yet-organic materials creates an unbelievable space that is dramatic yet warm, and distinct from the rest. An abundance of pristine fieldstone walls radiate earthy hues throughout, and the original oak hardwood threshing floors, fireplaces, and stately antique brick floors (reclaimed from historic Society Hill streets) further compliment the sophisticated design aesthetic. The eat-in kitchen features butcher block countertops blended with old-school charm, and allows for easy entertaining. One of the most outstanding rooms within Red Gate Barn is the greenhouse-like dining room, wrapped by a wall of angled glass, which offers panoramic garden views and sensational light. A horticulture-enthusiast will be pleased to discover an in-house watering system here, as well as immediate outdoor access. The formal bank barn entryway, located on the home’s second floor, captivates with its soaring ceilings heights, exposed beams, and rustic hardwood ladders. The private rear yard truly feels like a sanctuary, providing beautiful views of stone wall ruins repointed this year, wildflower gardens and a forest of mature trees. It is a home brilliantly tucked away from the street, yet, convenience remains deceivingly close: simply walk 200 yards to the ever-popular None Such Farmers Market, or take a 5-minute drive to downtown Doylestown or Buckingham Green shopping village. At Red Gate Barn, modern splendor coexists with exclusivity and artistry. Simply put, it is just one of those unique properties that you wish would come to market, but never does.....until now! If you’ve been searching for a “unicorn,” behold Red Gate Barn.
