At the end of a tree-lined drive in a prime Buckingham country setting, Stone Court Farm is a notable Bucks County property with 200+ years of rich history and character. Prominent historical figures visited this home ranging from Gen. George Washington’s cavalry and convalescing Civil War soldiers to Helen Keller and Madame Chiang Kai-shek who visited as guests of renowned sculptor Jo Davidson when he owned the property in the 1940s.
The farm is situated on over 11 acres with formal terraces and gardens and stately mature trees reminiscent of the English countryside while the beautifully maintained center-hall house is perfectly situated for maximum natural light and vistas in all directions. High ceilings, large windows, millwork and room dimensions suggest this home was built by a person of means with those details showcased in its entry hall and formal living and dining rooms.
The original section of the home is now the dining room which includes a huge walk-in fireplace made cozy with a wood-burning stove. The living room is paneled in antique cherry with a pumpkin pine floor and fireplace. Just updated and reconfigured to feature an island with range and bar seating, the William Draper kitchen is outfitted with chocolate granite countertops and reclaimed wood flooring.
A mudroom just off the kitchen features radiant heated floors and opens to the expansive stone courtyard and formal gardens. An office with a fabulous picture window, built-ins and a powder room complete the first floor while a graceful center hall stairwell and rear staircase lead to private quarters on the second and third floors.
The main bedroom that includes a sitting room/office is a true hideaway with wonderful views throughout the seasons. This suite features a wood-burning fireplace, dressing room and updated bath. A second en suite bedroom is on the other side of the second floor with a laundry area and a sumptuous full bath in between. This hall bath serves the third-floor bedroom and features a slipper-back soaking tub, fireplace, separate toilet room and furniture-style vanity.
Outside, choose your relaxation spot based on time of day – from breakfast on the front terrace to dinner in the back by the fountain, there is no bad view at Stone Court Farm.
For those who want a guest or party house, The Cottage is updated with modern comforts yet retains many original architectural details. Step into the great room and take in its exposed stone walls and light from clerestory and skylight windows – this is the room that Jo Davidson used as his studio. The great room has a fireplace and is large enough to accommodate multiple seating and game areas. With a full kitchen and bath and a vaulted-ceiling bedroom with fireplace, The Cottage is an ideal guest accommodation.
The property also contains a barn with a two-bedroom apartment which is very cozy with a living room with fireplace, full kitchen and 1.5 baths. Below the apartment is a three-bay garage and a generous amount of storage space.
The entire property has been updated and maintained with a long list of improvements by the current owner. For the buyer seeking the authenticity that only a historical home can provide along with well-designed modern amenities, Stone Court Farm is a beautiful part of Bucks County’s heritage.
