This circa 1846 luxury estate with an expanded, fully restored and renovated stone/frame farmhouse, original barn, and garage/studio situated on a premium 4.49 acre manicured landscape in the highly desired Vintage Farm community is simply sublime. The location of this lot benefits greatly in that it backs to 160 rich acres of preserved Bucks County land. Custom builder, Richard Zaveta, combined his construction expertise together with Daniel E Lloyd, Architect, to produce this one of a kind property. The dwelling was completely re-engineered between the years 2006-2009 with replacement of all windows & doors, and systems that included HVAC, septic (drip-type subsurface system), plumbing, and electrical. The current owners then refreshed and lightened each space with the expertise of interior decorator & designer Michael Herold who beautifully integrated contemporary styling while still honoring the home's traditional farmhouse roots. The main level features an outrageously well planned gourmet kitchen with custom Wood Mode cabinetry, built in designer appliances including a Wolf six burner gas range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Sub-Zero freezer, island Sub-Zero refrigerated refreshment drawers, two Miele dishwashers & one Fischer Paykel dishwasher, with added spectacular touches including reclaimed wood floors, granite countertops, subway tile backsplash, pot filler, Renato wood/gas pizza oven, full wall stone fireplace, and French doors leading to the covered flagstone patio ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining. The gleaming original wide plank wood flooring, tasteful crown molding & arched doorways, skim coat plaster walls, raised panel solid wood doors, and beaded board & raised panel wainscoting add to the tasteful decor of the main level's formal dining room with adjoining butler's pantry, living room, and wide hallways. The original walk-in cooking fireplace remains in the dining room and has been converted to gas. The second level provides ample living space for master residents and their guests while the third level offers potential long term guests or temporary personal caregivers their own spacious and very private living quarters. The second level guest bathroom includes a spa steam shower, radiant heat floors, and mosaic tile walls. The Primary Suite with vaulted ceilings throughout, wide plank oak floors, French doors to balconies, fireplace, laundry, kitchenette, and luxurious spa bathroom with oversized seamless glass shower, soaking tub, marble countertops, full wall subway tiles, and radiant heat floors, is simply gratifying in its thoughtful design and elaborate comforts. Other notable features of the home's interior include a temperature controlled wine cellar and tasting room (currently used as a private office) off of the kitchen. This quiet, tucked away space was formally the milk vault and spring cellar connecting to the original hand dug spring fed well. As well, you will most assuredly appreciate the Creston full house sound system, the irrigation system with its own separate well, security system, full house 25 kW generator, Buderus high energy efficient furnace, and Buderus hot water heater. Outbuildings include a two bay garage with a (two bay) personal gym, and the original barn with two car garage for automotive use or as added storage. Other exterior touches of the primary residence include cedar roofing, standing seam copper roofing, and pointed stone. And finally, from any of the multiple terraces, patios, and balconies, one can fully admire the very private, expanded infinity pool with separate circular spa, firepit seating overlooking the expansive back yard, with all of the grounds tastefully enhanced by exceptional specimen plantings and elegant rows of sturdy medium to large caliper trees. This is one of the most unique & distinguished homes you will ever find in Bucks County, it is truly a once in a lifetime property! Featured Listing in an article in The New York Times!
