The mystique of rural Bucks County has always been a magnet drawing urban weary individuals seeking the solace and the comfort afforded by its pastoral settings. This old farmstead is a testament to the true beauty and appeal of the rural Bucks County countryside. It appears to be lifted directly from a Bucks County Impressionist painting. built in the early 19th century by a pioneering family in the northern part of the county. It was the center of a farming and lumbering business that was a prominent part of the local culture. Located on a stream with waterfall and stone bridge, the property sits at the base of Bucks County's highest peak named Haycock Mountain. It included a classic historic stone farmhouse, extraordinary stone barn and guest house all on 5.5 acres on a quiet country road. The base and ruin of an early water driven lumber mill is part of the property. Only a step out the front door provides scenic streamside walks. Spectacular views with complete and permanent privacy. The setting is serene and it abuts two large preserves one being the 6500 acre Nockamixon State park with its huge lake which is wonderful for fishing and boating of all types and offers pool, walking and riding trails. The main house has over 3000 sf of bright and handsome living space. High ceilings give the rooms an unprecedented sense of light and space The period oak, ash and hickory wide random width board floors are extraordinary. The structure inside and out has retained most of its original architectural details including period handmade windows with wavy old glass and deep window sills. The main dwelling features 4 bedrooms, one of them huge, covering one whole floor, two full baths, formal living room with attractive working fireplace, formal dining room, breakfast room area, family room with open views and a second floor glassed in porch with fantastic panoramic view. The old stone barn is a treasure itself and was featured in "Barns of Bucks County". The adjacent guesthouse is large, in excess of 2000 sf. It can be used as guesthouse but it is presently rented and produces $1,000 mo income (which would carry approximately $190,000 in mortgage payments. Adjacent barn and 5 acres is also available for an additional $269,000. This alluring property is only 80 scenic mins to Manhattan, 60 mins to Philadelphia, easy access to I-78 and North Central New Jersey and within on hour of 3 international airports. A retreat to soothe one's soul!!!!!
