A Jewel in the Heart of Central Bucks
Central Bucks County is home to many million dollar listings and this month we feature Rockwood Farm. Resting on more than 50 acres, this impressive estate boasts its own spa complex, historical farm house and a four bedroom guest house. Let’s start with the main residence. Visitors are greeted by a grand center hall foyer complete with marble floors and a wraparound oak staircase with its own balcony that leads to the second floor suites. This dramatic entry way
is discovered after a scenic drive along River Road just south of New Hope and passing your own private tennis courts, a well-manicured pond in front of the property and being presented with a hand cut stone exterior. The first floor offers 10 foot ceilings in most of the rooms that includes a paneled home office, a conservatory, the spacious living room and a formal dining room, each boasting its own fire place.

As beautiful as these four rooms are, my favorite is this professionally designed kitchen…Wow! There is enough room in this area to film the next episode of Top Chef. The center island is great for entertaining a small group of four as they watch the master chef at work utilizing stainless steel commercial grade appliances, a nested pantry and hidden refrigeration units that appear as the cabinetry.
Custom made white cabinetry is complimented by custom stone floor tiles and a classy country feel to the backsplashes and wall units. There is a pass through window to yet another favorite room in the house, the family dining room, which is surrounded by windows and bathed in natural lighting. Selecting the right wine may require you to visit the 1000 bottle wine cellar that you can get lost in. Just below the kitchen, connected by either a stair case or your private elevator is your a controlled wine cellar/tasting room, a full bar and a 10 seat home theater. State of the art projection equipment and wireless connectivity are integrated throughout this entertainment area where close friends can gather.
If entertaining outdoors is on the calendar, this outdoor living area features beautiful woodwork, a spectacular stone fireplace and a view that is absolutely breathtaking.
The AquaSpa is a great spot to enjoy the sun and lunch by the pool. This area offers a French Riviera style feel for the bathers. Sixteen acres of open land and 34 acres of your own private wooded forest provide plenty of privacy, protected from the paparazzi if they are seeking you out.
There are 19 rooms throughout this 7 year old home. Five bedrooms and six bathrooms are in the main house and the guest house has another 4 bedrooms. The master suite is spectacular and opens onto its own sitting area, balcony and has spa like bathroom fit for Cleopatra. The other bedroom suites are just as stunning, but downsized a bit. Richard Zevada and his construction team in Doylestown are master craftsmen and have done a beautiful job building this home and making it distinctive.
This is just a taste of what you will find at Rockwood Farm and if you are looking for a few more details about this edition of our Million Dollar Homes of Bucks County, give our New Hope office a call and ask for Linda. Perhaps she can arrange a private showing if you are interested.
