Only a few minutes from the Delaware River, canal and towpath in Tinicum Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania you will come upon historic Four Brooks. Built in 1800, this classic stone bank barn has undergone a dramatic transformation. Utilized at the hub of an overnight summer camp and retreat from early 60's to mid 90's where boys and girls found spiritual growth while discovering the natural beauty of this scenic area. You can almost hear the faint sound of children's laughter as you come upon this site. Upon closing, the 130 acre camp was subdivided into large Country Estate lots, leaving this gorgeous stone barn and numerous outbuildings on 8 tranquil acres. It was purchased in 1998 by a visionary couple that launched a decade long labor of love renovation that preserved the architectural integrity with great respect for its time honored construction methods. Its massive beams, threshing floors, climbing ladders, weathered siding, etc., were repurposed with the objective of creating an incredible home with a sense of drama and charm. The result was a very special home and a truly extraordinary Bucks County Retreat. This handsome barn was converted to dramatic living space which includes 4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, wonderful country kitchen, timber framed living room with stone fireplace and almost 3700 SF of exciting living space. There is an additional 1000+ SF (former girls dormitory) of adjacent space for future expansion. The adjacent cottage offers a floor plan with 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, deck and separate parking area. There are a total of 3 other structures on the property: 3 stall horse barn, 1000 sf building that was formerly the boys dormitory and a wonderful 1400 sf Auditorium with handsome stone fireplace. Several antique and whimsical playground pieces still sit waiting for the next child or grandchild to climb on board. The grounds are fabulous with a perfect blend of rolling meadows, woodland, streams, waterfalls and walking trails. Adirondack chairs are strategically positioned throughout the site, each a place of quiet enjoyment and contemplation. Four Brooks would make an incredible Bed and Breakfast or a themed B&B.
