Far from the maddening crowd...where nature and nurture combine. Located on a small cul-de-sac and abutting 30+/- acres of preserved county land this very special property feels like a retreat from the everyday world. A winding gravel drive leads you to a custom home lovingly designed and maintained by the original owner. As you enter this 4.6 acre "preserve~, notice the serene surroundings, the specimen trees and plantings, and the private environment. A few steps lead to a rocking chair mahogany porch which extends the length of the home. The main entry welcomes with a single Anderson French door and gleaming hard wood floors that continue through most of this level. Anderson windows and doors can be found throughout the house. The Great Room runs from the front to the back of the home - 31 feet - with full length windows at one end and Double French doors with full height side lights at the other - that lead to the large back deck. A volume ceiling spans this entire space. What a place to relax every day or entertain the whole crowd! There is also a wood stove set-up here. The kitchen is designed ergonomically and boasts stainless steel appliances including a gas stove, Viking stainless steel hood, refrigerator, and Asko dishwasher. There are cork floors here. The mudroom/pantry adjoins the kitchen and also provides access to the back deck. There is a study on this level (which could double as a bedroom) when you need to take care of the tasks of the "outside" world. The master bedroom has a full wall of closets and a double French door with sidelights which bring you out to enjoy the private natural surroundings from the front porch. Two additional good sized bedrooms with ample closet space are also found here. The bath is both massive and charming with rubber flooring, claw foot tub and bead board trim. All the bedrooms have MinkaAire ceiling fans. On the lower level you will find the fourth bedroom with two full sized windows facing the front of the home. It is currently used as an art studio. There is another large full bath here. These two rooms and a huge unfinished space (originally intended as a family room) are warmed by radiant heat in the floor. The lighting is already in ~ all you need is drywall and the possibilities are endless. There are two additional full sized windows and a double French door with sidelight to match the one just above it. These doors exit to a wonderful brick and stone patio located at the front of the house. There is also a large storage area and laundry/utility room on this level. The exterior leaves nothing to be desired. There the 23~ X 20~ composite deck with ipe trim, posts, and benches off the back of the home. Tranquility and beauty surround whether sitting on the front porch, the lower patio or the back deck. An oversized detached three car garage plus attached mower garage is finished in hardi-board, like the main house, but with a board and batten style. The roof of the garage is standing seam metal and there is a wood storage structure attached to the side. Everything in the home was finished with a combination of natural materials and those with ease of maintenance in mind. A substantial 10~ X 20~ garden shed is as useful as it is charming and also has an attached woodshed. The remainder of the grounds is lawn, gardens and natural habitat. Horse lover? There is a small easement at the very edge of the property with direct access to the Bucks County Horse Park trails.
