136 Covered Bridge Rd

It is the rare occasion that an iconic Bucks County estate with historical significance comes to market. Even more rare is when the original connected side by side stone farmhouse residences - in this instance 1766 and 1770 - are offered completely renovated and with additional new construction added. Such is the case with Plumb Meadow Farm. With the collective vision and tireless efforts of the sellers, award winning architect Daniel Lloyd, and master builder Richard Zaveta, this splendid 107 acre property presents a once in lifetime opportunity to acquire a legacy Bucks County homestead. As the last and westernmost portion of an original 505 acre William Penn land grant in 1753, the property stretched from what is now Covered Bridge Road to the Delaware River. Parts of the original 505 acres are believed to have been used by George Washington's troops as an encampment prior to and after the crossing of the Delaware River for the Christmas Day 1776 Battle of Trenton. Today, the home is nestled just under Bowman's Hill and Bowman's Tower of the adjacent 200 acre Washington Crossing Historic Park, with the famous Van Sant Covered Bridge perched along a portion of the property frontage. Reimagined to perfection in 2015, now offering over 8,800 square feet of finished space, the home features spectacular exposed stone, gleaming oak floors, re-purposed wood and beautiful moldings throughout, all in an idyllic and most private setting. The original 1766 home is now a large formal dining room; the 1770 structure is now a formal living room w/patio access, with an exquisite and expansive owners suite now spanning the combined second floors of both. A gourmet kitchen w/ two islands, breakfast room, walk-in pantry, two story family room with floor to ceiling stone fireplace, office/library and more compliment the first floor. The upper level, in addition to the owners suite, features three additional bedrooms; one en-suite with two sharing a Jack and Jill bath, and bridge overlook to the family room. The laundry room is conveniently located on the upper level. The lower lever features a finished play room, with ample storage and additional space to ready finish. A breezeway leads to the structure housing the three car garage, featuring a large mud room entrance, hobby room, powder room, ample closets and storage, with a spectacular gym above. The home features 5 zones of HVAC, whole house generator, Control 4 security and operating system, Sonos sound system, Lutron lighting, irrigation system and more. The outside of the home is replete with remarkable, immaculate landscaping, two bluestone patios, one of which serves as a large well appointed outdoor kitchen under a large covering, rectangular salt water pool with Turkish travertine surround, gorgeous spring- fed pond, and 40' x 60' heated two-story barn / storage building. The magnificent acreage is a nature lovers dream, featuring approximately 52 acres of forested area with scores of species of both deciduous and non -deciduous trees, multiple springs, a Blue Heron rookery, roughly 40 meadow acres that can be farmed, over 2,200' of a gently meandering Pidcock Creek, and amazing year-round vistas in all directions. And you can hunt and fish to your hearts content. Finally, the Conservation Easement governing the property's preservation was amended in 2013, and now features an expanded building envelope allowing for an additional home, outbuildings, equine facilities, nursery and farming operations, etc. All with a lifetime of reduced taxes in perpetuity. Located on the southernmost border of Solebury Township, bordering Upper Makefield Township, the property lies almost equidistant from the beautiful and alluring walking towns of New Hope (12 Minutes) and Newtown (15 Minutes); 60 minutes to Philadelphia, 90 minutes to Manhattan. This is one of the Delaware Valley's most distinguished and investable properties. Now is the chance to make it your very own.
