This stone milking barn, one of a small number of historic barns from the late 1700s in the Bucks County area, has been magically transformed into a stunning residence. When you remove the cattle, a barn becomes the perfect empty shell in which to create a unique home. Formerly part of a Penn's Land Grant, you enter the residence through a completely private 6,000 sq. ft. stone courtyard with an in-ground heated pool. The 2-story foyer with custom chandelier brings you into an open floor plan with Venetian plaster and exposed stone walls, wide-plank flooring, hand-hewn beams, a fireplace surrounded by custom millwork, subtle and sensitive lighting, elegant bathrooms and kitchen with heated floors, and beautiful French-casement windows. All mechanicals and roofing are new, ensuring that this home combines the charm of yesterday with modern-day amenities. With 3 en-suite bedrooms and optional first or second floor master suites, this home has lots of options, including home office, artists's studio, guest or legal rental cottages. The 1st floor comprises 4,100 sq ft, with 1,000 square feet partially finished on the 2nd floor, offering lovely views. Another 800 sq ft on the second floor has a private entrance and can be finished as a home office, a 5th bedroom, or au pair quarters. A unique room along the courtyard can serve as the perfect venue for al fresco dining or a game room. The walled courtyard grants complete privacy for those seeking solace from a hectic world, while a short stroll can take you to the Delaware River canal trails for running or biking. 90 minutes can deliver you to New York City, 20 minutes to the cultural and academic world of Bethlehem, and 30 minutes to the activities of New Hope. Note that the property also has Multiple Commercial Possibilities.
