Discover The Garden of France Here in Bucks County
It is like this home was plucked from the French countryside and placed gently down on the best 10-acre plot of land in Upper Makefield Township. There is no shortage of million-dollar homes just north of Newtown, PA but there are very few that look and feel like they belong in the Loire Valley, also known as the Garden of France. This lush, fertile valley is rich with dairy farms, vineyards, and the French Baroque style of architecture. Let’s take a closer look at this French Manor home, right here in Central Bucks County.
Ten Acres in Bucks County That Feel Like The Loire Valley
Mature, flowering trees bring great colors to this garden in the spring and fall. Birds and butterflies flock to this tranquil scene. The light color stucco exterior is the perfect canvas for this painting…picture perfect! Behind the house, the landscaper had more fun building terraced gardens and shaded walkways to create your own personal nature preserve.
A great center hall invites you into the home from the main entryway. The millwork for the staircase, balcony, around the doorways, and in the library is breathtaking. I appreciate true craftsmanship of quality woodwork and stone masons, and this home shows off a high caliber of both.
Home With A Spa Bathroom & Swimming Pool
A tennis court, a basketball area, and a kidney-shaped in-ground pool are part of your recreation center. Yes, I said “recreation center.” Quite frankly, this resort- like setting rivals many you would find along the French Riviera. This Jacuzzi area leads into a spa area in the home, complete with a sauna, steam/shower and room for your masseuse to work his or her magic after a hard workout.
There is a total of six bedrooms, 5 ½ bathrooms throughout the 6,600-square-foot home. A carriage house offers visitors, or the au pair, a full one-bedroom apartment complete with its own amenities.
As you know by now, I enjoy mornings, and a breakfast room like this is a great place to enjoy the early morning hours sipping hot coffee.
Country Estate With a Renaissance Feel
All this can be yours for a mere $2.495 million. Philadelphia and all it offers, is a quick 30-minute ride down I-95 and the Big Apple is only a short train ride away.
