A serene country retreat set on a wooded hillside, only 3 miles to the center of Doylestown. With more than 4000 square feet, this contemporary residence is located on a secluded lane that envelopes you in the natural beauty of Bucks County yet affords you the convenience of being close to all the amenities of the historic county seat. You'll approach the house across a brick terrace reminiscent of a European-style entry courtyard. It is framed on two sides by the L-shaped house and open along its perimeter to mature gardens and lush forest. The entrance to the house, through arch-topped double French doors, opens into a dramatic great room that features a soaring ceiling with exposed trusses and a large tile-front fireplace with a custom Craftsman-style wooden surround. A walk-in wet bar outfitted with a granite countertop and beverage fridge is hidden behind double doors but easily at hand for entertaining. Another set of doors leads to a lofted stairwell, which is lit softly by handcrafted French casement windows with patterned glass and provides a buffer to the master bedroom ensuite. The expansive master bedroom, with a traditional bead-board ceiling and exposed beams, adjoins a tiled bathroom that boasts a 2-person shower with marble bench, a soaking tub, and a double granite-topped vanity in an arched niche. Double walk-in closets complete the space. A spiral stair with brass handrail descends to the bookcase-lined library, an ideal home office space for creativity and contemplation. Also on the first floor is a bedroom suite with full bath that can accommodate a resident with special mobility needs or even a nanny, since it has its own access to the walk-out garage. The design of the house allows not only for fluid circulation but also separation of public entertaining spaces from family spaces. An eat-in kitchen, with high-quality Rutt custom cabinets, adjoins a cozy family room. Two more bedrooms, with their own staircase and bathroom, occupy the second floor, offering a comfortable sanctuary. In this house, beauty is paired with a practicality that makes for easy living: a main-floor laundry, a central vacuum system, wiring for internet and cable, an over sized 2-car garage flanked by 2 large utility areas for storage and workshops, 3 separate heating/cooling zones, and an accessible walk-up attic. This is Bucks County living at its best, offering peace and tranquility without sacrificing proximity to services, shopping, and top-rated school.
