With the impressive distinction of being among the very earliest settlements in Pennsylvania, Pheasant Hill Farm is arguably one of Bucks County's finest treasures. Situated on ten acres (with an adjoining parcel of 37 acres also available), this quintessential country estate has only changed owners a handful of times in more than 300 years, so its rustic charm and old-world character remain completely unspoiled, making it one of the most significant properties to come on the market in a generation. A long, bowered driveway, flanked on either side with split-rail fencing, passes under a shady grove that opens to a dazzling hill-top retreat, perfectly private, but with truly breathtaking views of the Delaware River valley and the rolling hills of New Jersey beyond. To the west, holding court at the center of this collection of 18th century buildings is the 3-story main house, with fieldstone walls, vaulted rooflines and gable-end chimneys reminiscent of the property's colonial beginnings. Inside, you'll find 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, an eat-in kitchen, a formal dining room, a sun room, 2 drawing rooms, and a cozy tavern (complete with a brass-topped bar). Lovingly-maintained details abound: polished wide-plank floors, walls of stone and hand-troweled plaster, original woodwork, lead-glass window panes, hand-forged iron hardware, detailed stenciling, and fireplaces almost too numerous to count, including an arched walk-in fireplace in the kitchen. Just outside, an Amish greenhouse watches over a classic kitchen garden, with brick-lined walkways, and a series of raised beds for vegetables and flowers. Extending out from the house to the east is a handsome lawn with stately hedges and stacked stone walls that step down to an open field. At the far end of the lawn, overlooking a grotto-style plunge pool, is the 2-story guest cottage, with its own living area, sleeping alcove, kitchen, bedroom, bath, and walk-in cedar closet. To the west of the main house are twin timber frame and stone barns, the first of which has been transformed into a stunning living space with a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and 20-foot tall windows, perfect for an artist's studio, gym, office, or home theater. The second barn maintains its original character with giant doors and towering stone walls, making it an ideal setting for open-air dinners. Yet another smaller barn opposite the kitchen garden provides more space for storing bikes, sleds, outdoor furniture, and gardening supplies.
