Located off one of the most coveted and pastoral Solebury Township lanes, this custom-built French “Maison” is hidden behind gates on more than 10 acres of manicured grounds, where gentle slopes and giant Norway spruces and flowering trees add beauty and privacy. Paved walking and biking pathways create a park-like setting. Arriving at the residence, two white marble lions serve as the official guardians of this lovely estate. A two-story foyer and impressive staircase with mahogany railing await when you enter this magical place, where walls and ceilings are covered in hand-finished Italian Venetian plaster. The gourmet kitchen was remodeled from scratch with beige porcelain floors and a 12-foot island with a marble-topped baking station on one end and a cherry butcher block for salad prep on the other. In between the two work areas is a hand-painted, porcelain Italian apron sink. Two Fisher Paykel dishwasher drawers are located on each side of the sink. From the 2 glass Wolf cooktops (one is induction, and the other is electric) with a downdraft filtration vent and pot-filler behind them to the Wolf wall ovens, Wolf microwave, Miele coffee center, and separate Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, to the plentiful cabinetry, Franke sink, and Miele dishwasher, this kitchen is the ultimate in function and beauty. Just off the kitchen is a walk-in dish and food pantry. Whether you are cooking at the cooktop, baking, or prepping food, the views from all directions overlooking the property are spectacular as you gaze out to the lawns, evergreens, and wildlife! From the kitchen, a wide archway offers views into the family room which has new wood floors and a fireplace. The home has six working fireplaces: great room, dining room, office, wine room, family room, and owner’s suite. The remodeled owner’s suite includes a bath that is a French Riviera-inspired retreat with rain forest shower, comfort-height Koehler toilet, inlaid Italian hand-painted tiled scene, and air-jetted extra-deep oval soaking tub. There is custom mahogany cabinetry with two Kohler sinks, antique brass hardware, and faucets with mini chandeliers above them. A honed travertine marble floor continues up the walls and is trimmed in soft-hued, mother of pearl tiles for accent. All 8 bathrooms on the property were completely remodeled, each one in either marble or stone with Kohler and Toto fixtures and hand-rubbed cabinetry. A new elevator with a self-opening door was installed servicing the main and second floors. The second floor includes a fully equipped apartment with kitchen, living room, laundry, dining area, and large bedroom suite with full bath for guests, in-laws, or au-pair. For convenience, the first floor could be configured to accommodate the main bedroom suite. This lovely Maison also has other amenities, such as three laundry centers with Bosch appliances: one on main, one in the owner’s suite, and others in the apartment over the garages. The four-bay garages with brand new doors with quiet close motors. There are also two heaters for winter comfort and a heated workshop. A home backup generator assures you will always have power. The lower level of the estate, with all new flooring throughout, contains a generous 2,200SF finished area equipped with a professional-sized pool table, air hockey, foosball, and a smart TV with Bose surround sound system. For outdoor enjoyment, there is a newly built stone patio with space for a gas grill and a fire pit, plus an additional circular bluestone patio and a step-up private slate patio where a hand-laid stone chess game board with large black and white pieces awaits. Top-grade mechanicals, a generator, security systems, sprinkler systems, copper gutters, and so many additional amenities are included here. Convenient to New York, Philadelphia, and Princeton, in the prized New Hope-Solebury School District, this is a touch of “Central Park West” but in a lush, private setting.
