THORNWOOD BUCKS COUNTY Nestled at the end of a rustic private lane, in the rolling countryside of Upper Bucks County, is Thornwood - a gated 26 acre country retreat that embraces its humble origins as an early 1700's log home. Expertly re-imagined by true artisans, the now expansive residence presides over a pastoral meadow secluded within a mature hillside forest. Through multiple permutations over the past 3 centuries, Thornwood has held true to being proudly crafted from within. With much of the stone & millwork sourced directly from its own fields & forests, a residence unlike others, has unfolded through time. The current owner, a master craftsman & accomplished builder in his own right, saw fit to continue this tradition, sourcing the fine woods utilized in his artisanry, directly from the estate's grounds. This same wood, aged on site for over 10 years, has been transformed into some of the most intricate & elegant millwork imaginable. The property captures the feel of an elegant manor home with the essence of a casual retreat. The fieldstone & stucco over stone exteriors with original deep-set windows belie the public rooms that are light filled & expansive with extraordinary forest & meadow views from every vantage point. Standing at almost 5,000 square feet, with several dependencies including a 2 bedroom Guest House (w/full bath, kitchenette & walkout cellar); the main house welcomes guests w/a 2-story Great Hall Entry that overlooks one of three, stream fed ponds. Featuring custom crafted iron & brass work, hand carved Black Walnut & Oak detailing, walls of windows & a striking scale; the Great Hall Entry welcomes and impresses at every turn. Passing under the Great Hall's balcony and beyond the double faced, carved antique Mahogany fireplace is, for lack of a better description, a massive Kitchen suite. This epicurean's retreat, filled with floor to ceiling custom Ash cabinetry & a massive granite island, readily serves both the generous formal Dining Room & the covered al fresco dining porch with brick walled lily pond. Tucked within the heart of Thornwood is the original log structure, housing a more formal room conveying an olde world feel with hand carved detailing, beamed ceiling, custom ironwork & elegant double-back staircase leading to the new Master Suite. 3 more charming en suite bedrooms, a glass walled Billiards Room, several additional patios, lower level Wine Room, nicely equipped Home Gym & mud room w/add'l garage.
