Majestic views! Thundergust Mill is a hidden 15.5-acre property in one of the most dramatic settings in Bucks County. Sit back & enjoy the sights & sounds of the Geddes Run creek ? take it in from the multi-level deck at the edge of the water or, at the house, a covered pavilion complete with cove night-lighting and a ceiling fan; a side terrace; the rocking-chair porch or, dare we say, the perfectly placed soaking tub in the upstairs main bedroom suite, where French doors open to a private balcony. The grounds are a mix of lush, flat lawn bordered in carefully planned, easy-care perennials, terraced garden beds & mature trees. The rugged cliffs that rise above the creek create a natural privacy barrier for the property. Custom built in 2001 to incorporate a prior stone structure on the property, the present house & a custom-designed garage with workshop above are finished in vertical, select, rough-cut cedar, now stained for easy maintenance. Designed for easy indoor-outdoor flow & to make the most of the views, this home incorporates plenty of Andersen windows and French doors. The Roger Wright-designed kitchen with vaulted ceiling & skylights is designed with banks of windows in the workspace & the dining area. Between 3 walls of cabinetry and a large island, storage is plentiful. French doors open to a deck, while stone steps lead into the living room with stone fireplace & French doors to the deck. Two bedrooms on the 1st floor share a full bath, cleverly designed to be accessible from outside for those days when one needs a "farmer" shower before coming into the house. The main suite provides an airy retreat with dynamite views, a walk-in closet plus additional closet & a full bath with two pedestal sinks, an all-tile stall shower & toilet room. Step down to a sitting room with a big Palladian window and access to a laundry room. Extras here, besides the quality construction, include custom, all-wood exterior & interior doors, plantation shutters for many windows, central vac, central air & underground electric. Abundant exterior lighting along the cobblestone-lined perennial gardens, creeks & hillside allow for night-time enjoyment of this one-of-a-kind setting. And let's not forget the natural swimming hole off the creekside deck. If you've been looking for a "hideaway" in Bucks County that's still very convenient to New Hope, Doylestown, NJ, the canal path & river, look no further than Thundergust Mill.
In the late 1700s, the Stover Family owned various properties in Bucks County PA and in the hamlet of Point Pleasant they had a mill and various homes. What was once a small livestock barn was converted into a fabulous residence. An Architectural gem, this South facing Passive Solar structure exceeds your mere housing needs - you will live in a work of art. A Zen-like presence permeates the grounds and structures. Privacy is assured as the property is fully fenced and has electric gates at the driveway entrance. Your pets will enjoy being able to freely roam and gardeners will love that their plantings are secure from deer. As you enter through the courtyard between the home and a detached studio/office you feel as though you are in a grotto - greeted by a waterfall and a koi pond. The interior is a masterful blend of the open floorplan concept and is very intelligently designed. A true "Chef's Kitchen" with gas cooking and updated appliances is open to the Living Room area and a dedicated Dining Area is adjacent. A gas fireplace adds ambiance to the entire Main Floor. Sunlight floods the Second Floor through double height windows in an informal sitting area, perfect as an Office, Library or Music Room. The Bedroom on that level features a full bath with jetted tub, access from the hallway or bedroom. A second Bedroom is above with a half bath. You will enjoy the outside of the home as much as the inside, extensive flagstone porches and patios are easily maintained. Informal dining out on the South patio gives a feeling of Tuscany. The detached Office/Studio is the perfect spot for a practicing musician or a workshop for a hobbyist. The renovations/transformations here were done by one of Bucks County's most skilled craftsman - Todd Blackburn. His work has been appreciated and cherished by many due to the quality and attention to detail.
