In a prime location in Upper Makefield Township, a gated driveway entrance leads you to this impeccable home. With beginnings in 1840 but beautifully expanded, renovated and modernized over the years, this in the classic home in the idyllic community of Cedar Glen enjoys a professionally landscaped property surrounded by 8 sweeping acres of protected open space. The 4- bedroom, 3.1 bath home, crafted with natural building materials, was initially restored by the renowned builder, Ferman Lex. This distinctive home is graced by an inviting wraparound bluestone covered porch with standing seam metal roof. No expense was spared by the present owners in expanding and updating the home and property, which is listed on the Bucks County Historic Registry. Upon entering, you arrive into the original section of the home, a spacious Great Room, with stone fireplace & built-in wood storage, ideal for a living/dining combination, large dining room or use your imagination! Rich wood floors and period paint colors are throughout most main rooms, as well as the frequent use of tongue and groove wood walls, and stone and brick accents. An inviting Family Room wing, 2007 to 2008, has its own entrance, and showcases a stone walk-in Rumford fireplace, exposed beams, beaded vertical wood paneled walls, and a built-in vintage safe. A beautifully appointed eat-in kitchen is finished with terracotta tile floors with decorative insets, granite counters, a center island, gray subway tile backsplash, Bucks County Soapstone farm sink, stainless appliances including a 4-burner duel fuel range, pantry and comfortable dining area with antique glass cloche pendant lighting. The kitchen opens to a bright and airy sunroom with Vermont Castings stove, with windows and French doors to the outside. Nearby, a handsome library is enhanced with built-in bookcases and classic wood trim, leading to a hallway lined with windows, and into the spacious main level master bedroom suite, which is accented with a full wall of French doors. An en-suite main bath with jetted tub and shower, and walk-in closet with custom closet system complete this inviting retreat. The main bedroom suite and sun room both are centered on a large blue stone terrace, which includes a built-in Fire Magic Grill gas grill with burners, hand chipped and pointed 24 stone wall surround, and custom pergola-a mecca for outdoor enjoyment! A privately situated 1st floor office offers custom William Draper cabinetry, and three closets for coats and office supplies. A laundry room with its own outside entrance & closets, and powder room with a specialty William Draper dry sink vanity with hammered copper vessel sink completes the 1st floor. Two staircases lead to the 2nd level, with one bedroom featuring an en-suite dressing room and bath with hand-painted checkerboard wood floor, tile shower & built-ins. Two additional bedrooms, one with a back staircase, share a gorgeous newly-renovated bath in three sections- a custom vanity with two hammered nickel sinks, exposed stone wall and penny rounds flooring, separate marble shower, and separate water closet. The basement is partly carpeted, with finished & unfinished space, utility sink and storage. The detached, oversized 3+ carriage garage is outfitted with three 9~ wide doors, and includes a workshop with two sets of swinging barn doors offering space for 2+ extra cars, water, electric, cable, and a floored 2nd floor with potential for finishing. Additional features include cedar shake & seamed metal roofing, newer Marvin casement & double hung windows, copper gutters & downspouts (2008), wooden cedar shutters & period hardware (2008), period lanterns, newer 3-zone Weil McLain boiler & hot water heater (2002), central air and more. Superbly located with access to I-95 and major roads. Pure perfection!
